Truck operators interested in maximizing their fuel economy will have an opportunity to explore the new Kenworth T680 Advantage during a three-month tour announced 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 by 2 configuration) and special factory-installed aerodynamic package. As a result, the T680 Advantage with 76" sleeper offers up to a 5 percent fuel economy improvement compared to last year’s T680 76" sleeper with 2013 PACCAR MX-13 engine, Eaton UltraShift PLUS LAS 10-speed transmission, and Dana DSP40 6 by 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" 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.
