Self Study Program 507 – Amarok 2012 The 8-speed automatic gearbox 0CM

VAG SSP 507. The automatic gearbox in the Amarok is a completely newly developed 8-speed automatic gearbox, in which the greatest importance has been placed on efficiency, gearshift comfort and speed, low weight and reliability. The gearshifts are performed without interruption in traction, and the gearshift speeds are at the level of a DSG.

With a combustion engine, it is necessary to have a moving-off element that permits rotation speed differences between the engine speed and drivelines speed. In contrast to manual gearboxes and increased gearboxes, a converter operates with almost no wear, because the powerflow is only via the gearbox when moving off. The advantages of the converter are thus its low wear and the fact that its design causes the torque to be boosted beyond the engine torque. Specifically for the Amarok, the converter therefore represents the ideal moving-off element, because the very low ratio and torque increase provide a significant improvement in off-road and towing properties. This is in comparison to the Amarok with a manual gearbox, without step-down box. After the movingoff phase, the hydraulic slip of the converter is eliminated by the controlled lock-up clutch. This improves efficiency significantly.
