Kenworth Truck Company has announced the dates for its 2014 T680 road tour.
The new Kenworth T680 Advantage is Kenworth’s most fuel-efficient truck, the company says. It begins with the optimized powertrain combination of the 2014 Paccar MX-13 engine and the Eaton Fuller Advantage 10-speed automated transmission, and incorporates fuel-economy drive axles (such as a 6×2 configuration) and special factory-installed aerodynamic package. As a result, the T680 Advantage with 76-in. sleeper offers up to a 5 percent fuel economy improvement compared to last year’s T680 76-in. sleeper.
The Kenworth T680 Advantage Road Tour will visit 36 Kenworth dealer-hosted events in the United States and Canada. The two-country tour begins June 23 at Worldwide Equipment in Lexington, Ky.
Kenworth says the double-expanding, 53-ft. tour trailer features an interactive, self-guided exhibit. Visitors can learn more about the T680 Advantage, new Kenworth T880 vocational truck, and 12.9-liter Paccar MX-13 engine, and Kenworth history, the company says.
The tour trailer also includes the 2.1-meter wide cab used by the T680 and T880, new 52-in. sleeper complex reflector headlamps, air-assisted hydraulic clutch, electric-over-air dash switches, trim levels, exterior paint color samples and interior fabric options, and the Kenworth NavPlus system. Kenworth adds there are videos on the T680 and T880 design process, robotic cab construction, Kenworth history, and a display of Kenworth’s prestigious awards.
