Kenworth Truck Company today announced the introduction of its fuel-efficient Kenworth T680 Advantage Day Cab for pickup and delivery and regional haul operators. The new Kenworth T680 Advantage Day Cab features an optimized powertrain that includes the 2016 PACCAR MX-13 engine or PACCAR MX-11 engine and the Eaton Fuller Advantage series 10-speed automated transmission, combined with fuel-efficient Meritor MT40-14X drive axles rated at 40,000 pounds, Kenworth Driver Performance Assistant, Kenworth Predictive Cruise Control, Kenworth Neutral Coast and Flow Below wheel covers.
The Kenworth T680 Advantage Day Cab also includes aerodynamic treatments designed to further reduce aerodynamic drag and improve fuel economy. The featured enhancements are a front air dam, roof cap “bulb” seal, lower fairing extensions and lower fairing closeouts. Altogether, the T680 Advantage Day Cab offers up to a 6 percent fuel economy benefit compared to a non-optimized Kenworth T680 Day Cab with the previous generation of PACCAR MX-13 engine, Eaton Fuller automated transmission and standard drive axles.
Kenworth reports that for driver retention and recruitment, the T680 Advantage Day Cab offers features such as the 2.1-meter wide quiet cab, adjustable advanced suspension seats with climate control, air-assisted hydraulic clutch, ergonomic dash, easy-to-use Driver Performance Center and LED interior lighting.
