In 2006, TREMEC entered the high-performance vehicle segment with the 6-speed TREMEC TR-6060™. The manual transmission can stand up to some of the highest- output V8 engines in the industry – after all, it was designed for very demanding, high-performance vehicles such as the Chevrolet Corvette and Camaro, the Dodge Viper, and the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. For the development of the latest transmission, TREMEC counted on a key supplier who could support product development with expert knowledge: HOERBIGER.

TREMEC (Transmisiones y Equipos Mecánicos S.A. de C.V.) in Querétaro, Mexico, is the leading manufacturer of rear-wheel-drive manual transmissions in North America. Approximately 1,000 employees produce on average 300,000 transmissions per year, with revenue last year coming in at around USD 240 million.

TREMEC transmissions are manufactured according to the highest quality standards – not only in regard to the manufacturing process, but also the design concept. As such, the latest developments are integrated into the manual transmissions manufactured in Querétaro as well as the dual-clutch transmissions designed in Belgium. All TREMEC products, industrial designs, and manufacturing processes are intellectual property of TREMEC in Mexico, which has the exclusive right to manufacture and export worldwide.

The combination of sinter and carbon friction lining in one friction system enabled the gearbox to meet and exceed all three customer requirements: excellent cold-shifting performance, extremely low wear values, and high wheelspin capability.
