Kenworth sets off on ‘road tour’
Kenworth Truck Company has launched its 2013 Kenworth Road Tour, bringing the new Kenworth T880 vocational model and the Kenworth T680 on-highway model with the new mid-roof 52-inch sleeper on the road to special customer events hosted by 34 Kenworth dealerships across the U.S. and Canada before year-end.
The Road Tour opened Sept. 10, at MHC Kenworth in Kansas City, Mo.
The tour truck and comprehensive trailer exhibit will make stops at various Kenworth dealerships in Alabama, Arizona, California Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin, and in the provinces of Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario, Saskatchewan and Quebec.
Kenworth has put together an interactive, self-guided exhibit housed in a state-of-the-art, double-expanding, 53-foot tour trailer.
Inside, the Kenworth Road Tour trailer has nearly 1,000 square-feet of exhibit space. One side is dedicated to the vocational T880 and the other side to the on-highway T680. Visitors can examine the cab common to both models, new T880 hood, complex reflector headlamps, air-assisted hydraulic clutch, trim levels, exterior paint samples featuring 30 new Kenworth Signature colors and interior fabric options, new 52-inch sleeper, Kenworth NavPlus® system with Bluetooth capability for hands-free cell phone calling, and electric-over-air dash switches. There are videos featuring the design process for the T880 and T680, robotic cab construction, and Kenworth history – complete with a 90th anniversary wall and a display of Kenworth’s other prestigious awards.
