The industry is changing, and Dana has to change with it. That is why we engineered a full system solution to support the trend toward downsped engines. These products are designed well in front of the competitor, with the fastest axle ratios available and most durable U-joints to handle the extra torque downspeeding creates. Learn why here.
Engine downspeeding is lowering engine RPMs at highway cruise to maximize fuel economy and reduce emissions for the entire system. However, the challenge of downsped engines is that they increase torque throughout the drivetrain. Running existing components with additional torque will actually decrease component life over the long haul.
