Kenworth Class 8 trucks available with Spicer AdvanTEK 40 tandem axle

Kenworth has added Dana’s Spicer AdvanTEK 40 tandem axle for new Class 8 pickup and delivery, regional haul and linehaul trucks equipped with the Kenworth AG380 or AG400L suspension.

“The Spicer AdvanTEK 40 tandem axle is an excellent, fuel-efficient addition for new Kenworth Class 8 trucks,” said Kurt Swihart, Kenworth marketing director. “The AdvanTEK 40 axle is featured as a key part of the special Kenworth T680 Advantage configuration designed to help Kenworth customers maximize fuel efficiency.”

The Spicer AdvanTEK 40 axle incorporates leading design solutions, such as innovative gearing, which can help increase fuel economy, improve reliability, reduce vehicle weight, and decrease total ownership costs, according to Dana. The axle was developed with axle ratios of 2.26, 2.39, 2.53, 2.64 and 2.79 to handle higher torque and lower engine RPM at cruise speed. These axle ratios are available on Kenworth Class 8 trucks, including the T680 and T880.

The AdvanTEK 40 offering includes a flow-through lubrication system for the inter-axle differential; high-efficiency, on–demand lubrication pump; no maintenance U-tube breather; wheel differential locks; innovative lube flow enhancements; and the SelecTTrac solution for wide-based single-tire configurations.
