You may be familiar with manual and automatic transmission, but what is a CVT transmission? A CVT stands for “continuously variable transmission, but you may have heard its other names around Caledon as well: shiftless transmission, a step-less transmission, or a pulley transmission. What is a CVT compared to an automatic transmission?
A traditional automatic transmission uses a system of gears, shifting from low to high as speeds increase. A CVT, on the other hand, doesn’t use fixed gears. It uses cone-shaped pulleys connected by a chain or belt. One side remains still, while the other side of the pulley adjusts to your speed automatically with a hydraulic cylinder. The cylinder manipulates the distance between the two pulleys, moving the belt up and down to match your speed. This occurs without the need for a shift knob or paddles, so you can just enjoy your Orangeville travels.
You know what is a CVT, but why is this a better option for Georgetown drivers than an automatic? There are two primary benefits: efficiency and simplicity. Because the CVT doesn’t choose between fixed gears, it can optimize your performance and fuel economy with more finesse than a standard automatic. And because CVTs don’t have gears, they are simpler in design with fewer moving parts. This can translate to more affordable repairs!
