Kenworth Truck Company offered the latest information on its quality work trucks to leading body builders during NTEA’s New Model Truck Product Conference Sept. 10-12 at the Adoba Hotel in Dearborn, Mich. The National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA) sponsored the show, which gives invited body builders an opportunity to preview new model chassis.
“Kenworth exhibited two, new Kenworth T880 vocational models, which help provide fleets and truck owners with enhanced productivity, lower operating cost and a more comfortable work environment for drivers,” said Alan Fennimore, Kenworth vocational marketing manager. “The all-new T880 was introduced at the Mid-America Trucking Show earlier this year and builds upon Kenworth’s 90-year heritage of quality, innovation and technology to produce industry-leading, rugged and reliable vocational trucks. In addition, we displayed a Kenworth T370 dump truck for customers in the Class 7 vocational market.”
Leading the way at the show is a new Kenworth T880 equipped with a standard hood at 122.5-inch BBC and a 485-hp PACCAR MX-13 engine with 1,650 lb-ft of torque for use in a roll-off waste container application.
Designed for a mixer application, the second Kenworth T880 is a 116.5-inch BBC short hood optimized for a PACCAR MX-13 engine rated at 380-hp and 1,450 lb-ft of torque. The PACCAR MX-13 can be rated up to 500-hp and 1,850 lb-ft of torque.
The Kenworth T370 dump is powered by a 330-hp PACCAR PX-9 engine with 1,000 lb-ft of torque.
