Stevens Transport has ordered 500 aerodynamic Kenworth T700s equipped with 400-hp Cummins ISX engines, the Kirkland, Wash.-based truck maker announced.
The tractor is certified in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay program, said Kenworth Chief Engineer Preston Feight. Stevens, a refrigerated carrier based in Dallas, ordered 75-inch aerodyne sleepers as well for the tractors.
Affected tractors are equipped with an automated Eaton UltraShift Plus or Eaton Advantage Transmission with right hand stalk shifter. In the affected trucks, the display on the instrument panel can indicate “N” when the shifter is set into “D” or “R,” causing the truck not to move.
