An automated manual transmission with digital intelligence


Our newest I-Shift makes every load 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, training, or application, I-Shift helps every driver become more fuel efficient.

Every VHD with a D13 Volvo Power engine comes standard with the I-Shift for Severe Duty transmission. This I-Shift is designed for on- and off-road work in vocational applications that require frequent shifting. It includes upgraded hardware and software, improved engaging sleeves for greater durability and a new countershaft brake for improved performance and smoother shifting.

I-Shift with Crawler Gears

When steep-grade startability and low-speed maneuverability are critical, the I-Shift with Crawler Gears is the answer for maximum Gross Combined Weight (GCW) loads. The crawler option adds either one or two gears to the I-Shift, a low gear and ultra-low gear, for low-speed control.

The I-Shift with Crawler Gears’ weight capacity is among the industry’s highest for automated manual transmissions. It enables controlled forward and reverse travel at extremely slow speeds, perfect for paving and curbing applications. Upgraded software optimizes shifting for high GCW applications, allowing shifting to occur at higher revs, and enabling drivers to control downshifts.
