The Kenworth T680 with a 52-inch sleeper is now available for order, the truck maker announced this week. Kenworth unveiled the truck in March at the Mid-America Trucking Show. The company says the 52-inch sleeper is well-suited for regional hauling applications, including tank, bulk, flatbed, heavy-haul and lowboy, where drivers may spend just two or three nights on the road during a typical week. The sleeper offers operators up to approximately 600 pounds in weight savings, KW says, compared to the 76-inch sleeper available with the T680.
Affected trucks include model year 2008-2018 Freightliner Cascadia and Western Star 4700, 4900, 5700 and 6900 trucks. DTNA says after hard brake applications, the brake light pressure switch may not activate the brake lights with the light application of the brake pedal.
