“Kenworth has a 90-year heritage of manufacturing industry-leading trucks, and the new T880 and T680 are the latest in that distinguished line of quality, innovative trucks,” said Alan Fennimore, Kenworth vocational marketing manager.
“For the road tour, we’ve developed an interactive, self-guided exhibit hosted in a state-of-the-art, double-expanding, 53-foot tour trailer. Customers will especially enjoy taking some time to learn more about the key features of both the T880 and T680, see the 12.9-liter PACCAR MX-13 engine, and experience 90 years of Kenworth history,” he said.
Introduced at the Mid-America Trucking Show, the Kenworth Road Tour exhibit is available for viewing during the Mid-America Trucking Show through Saturday, March 23, in the parking lot outside the South Wing of the Kentucky Fair & Exposition Center.
The new Kenworth T880, which sets an industry standard for vocational trucks, is designed to help maximize performance in such applications as dump, mixer, refuse, and heavy haul. Several T880s will be included on the tour. The Kenworth T680, which has received U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) SmartWay(R) Designation, is designed to maximize performance in line haul, pickup and delivery, and regional hauling operations.
