Kenworth now offers the Dana SPL 250 Lite driveline for the Kenworth T680 and Kenworth T880 in linehaul and regional haul applications.
According to the manufacturer, the SPL 250 Lite is 25 lbs. lighter, has fewer moving parts, and reduces Noise Vibration and Harshness (NVH) values compared to the SPL 250 XL driveline series it replaces in the Kenworth lineup. The driveline can support 18,400-plus lb./ft. of driveline torque for downspeeding applications, and offers extended component life and reduced maintenance, according to Dana.
“Kenworth’s addition of the SPL 250 Lite driveline reduces weight and maintains durability, provides longer service intervals for powertrain components, and enhances comfort with a quiet and smooth ride that drivers will appreciate,” said Kurt Swihart, Kenworth’s marketing director.
