I-SHIFT TRANSMISSION

I-Shift Product Guide

INTELLIGENT SHIFTING

Our newest I-Shift makes drivers more productive, using intelligent electronics to continuously monitor grade, speed, weight, and engine load, shifting when necessary or holding a gear-whichever saves more fuel. So regardless of experience or training, I-Shift helps every driver become more fuel-efficient.

SATISFIED DRIVERS

When you drive an I-Shift, you'll never want to deal with a clutch again. I-Shift lets you concentrate on the task at hand, delivering freight, not on what gear you're in.

BRAINS, BRAWN & VALUE

With a 2,300 lb-ft torque rating, I-Shift is compatible with every Volvo engine. Upgraded internal hardware increases durability and shifting - improving performance, fuel efficiency and drivability.

DESIGN CHANGES DRIVE SAVINGS

I-Shift's redesigned transmission cooler optimizes fluid temperature, improving fuel efficiency. Connections throughout the transmission are also upgraded for faster maintenance during service stops.

AUTOMATION UPGRADED - SAVINGS DELIVERED

Volvo has made the industry's most advanced automated transmission even better. The latest edition of the I-Shift includes upgraded hardware and software, greater durability and a new countershaft brake for improved performance and smoother shifting. The electronic control unit can handle any load and any road, shifting perfectly every time. We've also improved clutch durability and torsional dampening in both our D11 and D13 models. So I-Shift not only keeps fuel costs down, it can help slow driveline wear, reduce noise, extend transmission life, and lower maintenance costs.
