Kenworth launches T680 Advantage day cab

Kenworth Truck Co. has introduced the Kenworth T680 Advantage day cab for pickup and delivery and regional-haul operators. The T680 Advantage day cab package includes the 2016 PACCAR MX-13 or MX-11 engine and the Eaton Fuller Advantage series 10-speed automated transmission, combined with Meritor MT40-14X drive axles rated at 40,000 lbs., Kenworth Driver Performance Assistant, Kenworth predictive cruise control, Kenworth Neutral Coast, and FlowBelow wheel covers.

The Kenworth T680 Advantage Day Cab also includes aerodynamic treatments designed to further reduce aerodynamic drag and improve fuel economy. The featured enhancements are a front air dam, roof cap “bulb” seal, lower fairing extensions, and lower fairing closeouts.

Altogether, the T680 Advantage Day Cab offers up to a 6% fuel economy benefit compared to a non-optimized Kenworth T680 Day Cab with the previous generation of PACCAR MX-13 engine, Eaton Fuller automated transmission, and standard drive axles; 5% of the improvement comes from the aerodynamic features and 1% from the powertrain.

“We’ve leveraged some of the key fuel-efficiency optimization specifications and special aerodynamic treatments on the Kenworth T680 Advantage 76-in. sleeper and brought them to the day cab market,” said Kurt Swihart, Kenworth’s marketing manager. “Customers who purchase new T680 day cabs will receive real-world, fuel economy benefits from these specifications and key aerodynamic features designed to help maximize operating efficiency.”
