Kenworth Truck Company announced that the new, aerodynamic Kenworth T680 model has received U.S. Environmental Protection Agency SmartWay Designation.
Kenworth now has three on-highway vehicles with EPA SmartWay Designation – the Kenworth T660, Kenworth T680 and Kenworth T700.
EPA SmartWay Designated tractors are intended for use with 53-foot, box van trailers that are also EPA SmartWay Designated. According to the EPA, a SmartWay tractor-trailer combination may reduce fuel consumption by as much as 18 percent at highway speeds. Fleets in-use savings will vary based on their specific operations and environment.
Kenworth’s fuel-savings technology solutions include liquefied and compressed natural gas vehicles, and medium duty diesel-electric hybrids. Kenworth is the only truck manufacturer to receive the EPA’s Clean Air Excellence award in recognition of its environmentally friendly products.
