InnovationWay Freightliner/Allison Match The Freightliner 122SD can now be spec’d with Allison 4700 rugged duty series (RDS) and oil field series (OFS) automatic transmissions. The combination of the 122SD with Allison’s vocational transmissions is ideal for tough offroad applications. Better performance comes from such features as 2nd reverse, which offers a second “deep reverse” in addition to the standard reverse; automatic shifts, which automatically and smoothly make the right shift at the right time; and greater startablity, which uses less torque to launch and go. Both transmissions are available with Detroit DD13, DD15 and DD16 and Cummins ISX heavy-duty engines. Visit freightlinertrucks.com.
