Allison hosts Australia Ride & Drive day

International representatives from transport operators in municipal, construction, emergency and energy sectors, as well as vehicle manufacturers and transport media will converge on Australia's Gold Coast, April 15-21, to test the latest Allison automatic transmission technology in a range of commercial vehicles.

Delegates will sample a variety of Allison-equipped vehicles, both behind the wheel and as passengers, highlighting the superior performance, safety and value of automatic transmissions. The event will be held at the Mt. Cotton Driver Training Centre south of Brisbane, a 283 hectare (700 acre) facility with more than 7.6 kilometres (5 miles) of undulating circuits and training roads.

“Customers and journalists will drive a wide range of vehicles on tarmac circuits, dirt access tracks and in an off-highway area, witnessing first-hand the difference an Allison makes in actual operating conditions as compared to other transmission technologies and manufacturers,” Allison states. “Experiencing the superior performance and value of its line of automatic transmissions in person will help Allison's guests understand why 38 OEMs now sell trucks, buses, coaches and specialty vehicles in Australia.”

According to Lawrence Love, Executive Director of International Marketing at Allison Transmission, the Australia Ride & Drive will bring visitors from across Asia, India, the Middle East, Australia and New Zealand to The Gold Coast for the opportunity to experience the automatic and discover the value of an Allison.

“Our guests will have the unique opportunity to drive a wide array of commercial vehicles produced by European, American, Japanese, Chinese, Korean and Australian OEMs – all equipped with an Allison automatic transmission. We'll demonstrate how our company has established a reputation for superior quality, reliability and durability. By participating in this Ride & Drive, those serious about increasing productivity, maximizing performance and improving profitability will be better equipped to make informed decisions about the right transmission technology for their demanding transport environments,” says Love.
