Kenworth announces T680 Road Tour

| June 03, 2014

Truck operators will have opportunities to check out the Kenworth T680 Advantage in a three-month road tour announced this week by Kenworth. 

Kenworth says the truck is its most fuel efficient model, led by the “optimized powertrain” combo of the 2014 Paccar MX-13 engine and the Eaton-Fuller Advantage 10-speed automated transmission. The Advantage package also includes a 6×2 axle configuration and a factory-installed aerodynamic package. 

The 76-inch sleeper T680 boosts fuel economy by 5 percent compared to last year’s model, the truck maker says. 

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.
