Penske Truck Rental is adding 500 new Freightliner semi-tractors to its commercial truck rental fleet featuring Eaton’s UltraShift PLUS Multipurpose High Performance (MHP) automated transmissions. Call 1-800-PENSKE-1 to rent one of these new vehicles.
Built upon Eaton’s Fuller 13- and 18-speed manual transmissions, the UltraShift PLUS Performance Series uses an electronic clutch actuator to provide faster shifting and smoother engagement. Intelligent shift selection software uses changes in grade, weight, and throttle to calculate the most efficient and effective shift points. The UltraShift PLUS fully engages the clutch at idle, giving the driver ultimate control in challenging situations.
