Maximizing Value Across All Powertrain Configurations
Dana is a premier provider of traditional and electrified driveline products and systems for medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles. We help OEMs and end-market customers achieve the best weight, performance, and efficiency, as well as lowest cost of ownership, no matter the powertrain configuration.
Uptime. It’s where the rubber meets the road, literally and figuratively. And, it’s one critical measurement to our customers’ success. That’s why every Dana solution is developed and engineered with uptime in mind.
From advanced driveline components that reduce NVH and successive drivetrain issues, to downspeeding solutions that drive greater fuel economy, to emerging hybrid and electric propulsion systems for a greener earth and maximum productivity, Dana-designed technologies offer the efficiency and reliability to keep trucks on the road, right where they should be.
Total Cost of Ownership
Spec’ing a drivetrain for the ideal lifecycle cost can be a challenging task. The best-managed total cost of ownership maximizes a truck’s profitability, and a fleet’s bottom line. Dana’s innovative solutions help fleets and owner-operators optimize a vehicle’s specs for the best return on investment by providing longer life, less maintenance, higher payload, and greater overall efficiency.
As the commercial vehicle industry moves toward electrification, fleets are closely evaluating the effects of this transition on lifecycle costs. To help support customers in this decision-making process, Dana’s Total Cost of Ownership calculator provides a comprehensive cost comparison between traditional diesel platforms and full-electric powertrain solutions.

Fuel efficiency is crucial to a fleet’s bottom line, and spec’ing the right drivetrain for the ideal combination of fuel efficiency and performance can be daunting. Many fleets today are making strides in fuel efficiency with a downsped engine configuration and Dana has a drivetrain system to complement this need. The Dana solution, optimized for engine downspeeding, includes the Spicer® AdvanTEK® 40 tandem axle, the SPL® 350 driveshaft, and the SPL® 250 inter-axle shaft. Designed to work together, while complementing the entire vehicle package, the Dana downspeeding system delivers not only an overall fuel-optimized package but increased reliability and greater overall vehicle efficiency.
Dana has spent more than a century mastering the physics of the driveline, and we lead the industry today with a new generation of driveline innovations specifically engineered for the most fuel-efficient trucks on the road.
Why all the hype about lightweighting? Simply speaking, more payload and better fuel economy – which of course mean higher profits. And, Dana is here to help fleets accomplish this task with a variety of weight-saving solutions to help maximize payload, fuel economy, and profitability. Everything from our Spicer® AdvanTEK® 40 tandem axle that’s an average of 21 pounds lighter than competitive products, to our SPL® 350 Lite driveshaft that’s up to 35 pounds less than existing products, or our Spicer® EconoTrek™ 6x2 system which is up to 3 percent more efficient and 350 pounds lighter than traditional axle arrangements. Dana lightweighting solutions are easy to maintain, offer extended component life, greater fuel efficiency, and superior performance.
The evolution of mobility is here. Increased emissions regulations, new government policies, an upward trend in urbanization, higher productivity, and a continued commitment to a “greener” earth. The accelerated need for alternative propulsion solutions is imminent, and Dana is your single source.
Whether your electrification platform requires an e-Power system technology, a full e-Axle or e-Drive unit, an integration partner, or anything in between, Dana is an industry leader in e-Powertrain development and complete electrified commercial vehicle solutions.
