Ricardo Partners on Truck Transmissions

Ricardo said it is assisting Ford Otosan as heavy-duty transmission family development partner for future commercial vehicle platforms.

Ford Otosan is a public company in which Ford Motor Co. and Turkey’s largest industrial conglomerate, Koç Holding, have equal stakes with a particular focus on heavy commercial vehicles and related powertrain technologies.

Shoreham, England-headquartered Ricardo is working with Ford Otosan on the design and development of a family of transmissions, to be manufactured in-house by Ford Otosan for use in future versions of Ford Trucks. Both companies’ engineers are working in close collaboration, with Ricardo providing technical consultancy services.

“This work underscores the impressive driveline and transmission track record of Ricardo, which ranges from motorsport to the largest of off-highway equipment and heavy commercial vehicles,” said Ian Penny, Ricardo director of commercial and off-highway vehicles.
