Recently Developed Auto Transmissions
Three basic kinds of automatic transmissions are currently popular on the market. Depending on your driving habits and common road conditions on which you drive, one of the broad types will likely be better suited for your needs.
- Automated Manual: This type is similar to a conventional manual transmission. The significant difference is that they employ computer circuitry to engage the clutch automatically when gears require changing.
- Continuously Variable Transmissions (CVT): CVTs use a belt to give a wide array of gear choices depending on the driving conditions. These transmissions can accelerate quickly, but they cannot deliver a substantial amount of power.
- Dual-Clutch: An advanced form of the automated manual, the dual-clutch arrangement allows this transmission type to provide high-performance shifting while delivering smooth operation and better fuel efficiency.
There are many decisions that you must make when selecting a replacement transmission. With a generalized understanding of the different transmission types, you will be better equipped to choose the right one to suit your or your customer’s needs.
