"Our Diamond Logic operating system is best known for its ability to provide control and communication between work trucks and body equipment," Kozek said. "Diamond Logic addresses convenience and safety on behalf of our customers while automatic and automated manual transmissions work to reduce the variance between expert drivers and first-timers." By electronically monitoring vehicle speed, grade, weight and more to select the best gear for the engine, Navistar's portfolio of automatic and automated manual transmissions improve efficiency and extend the life of the driveline. Navistar currently offers the Cummins Eaton Smart Advantage™ 10-speed automated manual transmission, the Eaton UltraShift® Plus LSE 16-speed direct drive automated mechanical transmission on the ProStar® and the Allison TC10, a 10-speed fully automatic transmission, on the ProStar and the TranStar®. "Ultimately, we want our customers to have choices and also experience the highest level of uptime in the industry," Kozek added.
