The Endurant XD series are new, purpose-built, 18-speed automated manual transmissions designed for applications with high gross combined weight ratings, such as heavy-haul and double- and triple-trailer tractors, and heavy-duty vocational trucks operating in harsh environments.

“The Endurant XD series represents a new level of precision, control, and durability that will change the way vocational fleets think about AMTs,” said Dave Karnes, VP of sales at Eaton Cummins.

The Endurant XD has undergone millions of miles of testing from Australia to Mexico in various applications, including dump and logging trucks. Its robust design features encapsulate electronics protected from the environment and provide operators with oil pressure and temperature information to ensure performance in extreme conditions.
