Kenworth will offer ISX12 G in T680 later this year

Jason Cannon March 28, 2014

Later this year, Kenworth Truck Company will offer a natural gas option for its fuel-efficient T680, the company announced Wednesday at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Ky.

“Our customers find it very appealing to be able to choose cost-efficient natural gas combined with the fuel-saving aerodynamics of the Kenworth T680,” says Andy Douglas, Kenworth national sales manager for specialty markets. “This important expansion of our T680 product line will provide customers in various applications with new benefits and cost-savings opportunities.”

The Kenworth T680 day cab and 52-inch mid-roof sleeper will be available with the factory-installed Cummins Westport ISX12 G natural gas engine rated up to 400-hp and 1,450 lb-ft of torque.

The Cummins Westport ISX12 G engine requires a single fuel source and can run on either CNG or LNG (liquefied natural gas) and uses a maintenance-free, three-way catalyst and does not require a diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) tank, diesel particulate filter (DPF) or selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology.

Kenworth also offers the ISX12 G in the Kenworth T660 and the Kenworth T800 short hood with a 116.5-inch BBC.
