Designed for SUVs, pickup trucks, cross-over vehicles, delivery vans and commercial vehicles, TREMEC five- and six-speed rear-wheel drive manual transmissions feature aluminum die cast housing for a lightweight, durable construction.
All forward gears are fully synchronized and utilize high strength steel on all gears and shafts - maximizing torque capacity and durability while minimizing weight and package size.
An effective option for light duty trucks is the TREMEC dual clutch transmission. With a DCT, the powertrain never has to be disconnected from the transmission, which allows for lightning-quick gear changes. The result is improved acceleration compared to a regular automatic.
Another benefit is effieciency. Since DCTs do not have an inefficient torque converter (like regular automatics) and do not interrupt power flow to the engine, they offer better fuel economy.
DCTs are smother than most transmission types, as well. With a dual-clutch, gear changes are almost imperceptable, a major benefit compared to many automatics that can have clunky gear changes, reducing ride comfort.
