Truck operators interested in maximizing their fuel economy will have an opportunity to explore the new Kenworth T680 Advantage during a 3-month tour announced today by Kenworth Truck Company.
The new Kenworth T680 Advantage is Kenworth’s most fuel-efficient truck. It begins with the optimized powertrain combination of the 2014 PACCAR MX-13 engine and the Eaton Fuller Advantage™ 10-speed automated transmission, and incorporates fuel-economy drive axles (such as a 6×2 configuration) and special factory-installed aerodynamic package. As a result, the T680 Advantage with 76-inch sleeper offers up to a 5 percent fuel economy improvement* compared to last year’s T680 76-inch sleeper with 2013 PACCAR MX-13 engine, Eaton UltraShift® PLUS LAS 10-speed transmission, and Dana DSP40 6×4.
The Kenworth T680 Advantage Road Tour will visit 36 Kenworth dealer-hosted events in the United States and Canada. The two-country tour begins June 23 at Worldwide Equipment in Lexington, Ky. The double-expanding, 53-foot tour trailer features an interactive, self-guided exhibit. Visitors can learn more about the T680 Advantage, new Kenworth T880 vocational truck, and 12.9-liter PACCAR MX-13 engine, and Kenworth history.
The tour trailer also includes the 2.1-meter wide cab used by the T680 and T880, new 52-inch sleeper complex reflector headlamps, air-assisted hydraulic clutch, electric-over-air dash switches, trim levels, exterior paint color samples and interior fabric options, and the Kenworth NavPlus® system. There are videos on the T680 and T880 design process, robotic cab construction, Kenworth history, and a display of Kenworth’s prestigious awards.
