    Are Coca-Cola trucks standard? Are they 10-Speeds?

    Hey, curious question in regards to whether Coca-Cola trucks are standard or automatic. If standard, 10 speeds?

    Depends on what each distributor buys. Its up to them to decide what tranny to use.

    When I worked for Johnston Coke the side bays were Internationals with Eaton 7 speeds. The bulk trucks were 9 speeds. The more you unload the faster they go, lol. But that was 16 years ago.

    I saw a Coca-Cola truck sitting outside of a Bass Pro Shop. It was some kind of electrical hybrid, looked interesting.

    In the northwest we have 6,7,10's, super 10's and all the new ones are autos. Im a relief driver so I get em all. The hybrids and autos are disappointing to drive.
