DUONIC 2.0 – smooth, economical and ahead of the pack

A hallmark of Canter for several years has been the industry-leading DUONIC automated manual transmission – unique to Fuso - which lowers running costs and simplifies driving.

 

In 2016, DUONIC was upgraded to DUONIC 2.0 with a major modification of the dual clutch system.

The highly efficient, low-maintenance DUONIC system features a dual wet clutch comprising two separate spinning multi-plates lubricated by oil. These individually control odd and even gears so that the Canter’s computer can select the ‘next most appropriate gear’, which is pre-selected and instantly engaged when required.

DUONIC 2.0 maximises power transmission efficiency by switching more quickly between the two clutches, resulting in lower fuel consumption and virtually eliminating gear shift shock for smoother car-like driving and comfort.

To further lower fuel consumption, up-shifting occurs earlier in heavy traffic when ‘Eco’ mode is selected. This keeps the engine operating in the most economical range.

Because DUONIC 2.0’s ratios have been developed in conjunction with Fuso’s 4P10 engine, they are matched to the power plant’s flat torque delivery. That equates to smoother driving, significant fuel savings and virtually no wear. The only maintenance required is a fluid replacement at 60,000km.

Overall, DUONIC 2.0 delivers a performance that’s hard to beat.
