Kenworth offers optional upper bunk, roof fairing aerodynamics

Kenworth T680 upper bunkAn enhanced 52-in. mid-roof sleeper offering for the Kenworth T680, with the addition of an optional upper bunk, and an aerodynamic roof fairing is now available.

The 28-inch wide foam upper bunk for regional haul applications that require a second sleeper berth is for use while the vehicle is parked. The T680 52-inch sleeper is standard with a liftable lower bunk that features a 32-in. wide premium pocket coil mattress or an optional, 38-in. wide premium pocket coil mattress.

The Kenworth Truck Co.‘s T680 52-in. sleeper’s optional roof fairing is designed to help offer optimal aerodynamics for dry van fleets involved in regional haul operations. Without the fairing, the sleeper configuration is suited for tanker and flatbed applications.

The Kenworth T680 is standard with the PACCAR MX-13 engine rated up to 500 HP and 1,850 lb./ft. of torque. The model features a stamped aluminum cab, panoramic windshield, and a three-piece hood. A passenger swivel seat is available as an option to expand the vehicle’s living space. A bunk heater, flat screen TV, premium sound system and factory-installed inverter with optional shore power can also be spec’ed.
