Allison Transmission, a leading designer and manufacturer of conventional and electrified vehicle propulsion solutions for tactical wheeled and tracked defense vehicles will provide the Allison 2500 Specialty Series™ (SP) transmission for AM General’s A2 version of the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV). The JLTV is used by the U.S. Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force in addition to allied forces around the world.
The JLTV is designed to operate in extreme environmental conditions, softer soil, and provide never before achieved speed, power and protected mobility. Allison has provided the 2500 SP for the JLTV since the first version (A1) began production in 2015. Based on the proven performance of the more than 19,000 transmissions, the U.S. Army continued to specify the Allison 2500 SP transmission for the JLTV A2 expected to be delivered approximately 18 months after the February 9, 2023 contract award.
“Allison is extremely proud that the 2500 SP will remain the propulsion solution of choice for the JLTV,” said Dana Pittard, Vice President, Defense Programs, Allison Transmission. “We are providing innovative propulsion solutions that meet the needs of our customer and deliver fuel efficiency technologies that offer on-the-move fuel economy improvements and anti-idle capability that optimize combat effectiveness of tactical wheeled vehicles.”
The U.S. Defense Department’s acquisition plan forecasts more than 55,000 JLTV A1 & A2 versions over the next two decades. International orders from Belgium, Montenegro, Slovenia, Lithuania, Brazil, Romania and North Macedonia have expanded the market as allies embrace the JLTV’s superior mobility, unmatched reliability and proven performance.
