Not in the market in the near future, but I have had my interest piqued with the new Allison TC10 automatic. I had the chance to use an Allison in a truck when I lived in Alaska and really liked it. Allison includes braking features in the automatics that compliment the engine braking. Will really hold speed down on a down grade. The TC10 was just introduced a year ago, and it targeted at the OTR general freight market like the auto shifts. Watching some of the videos on it, it seems to be a real challenge to the auto shifts. Allison claims the pricing is comparable to the auto shifts.

I am getting old too. After 4 decades of manual shifting in heavy trucks, I am ready to let the transmission do it for me.
