The story of the next-generation Kenworth T680’s launch is a tale of two redesigns: one outside and one inside. The new aerodynamic designs add up to increased fuel efficiency compared to the previous T680, while the new 15-in. digital display offers a bevy of customization options. Then there’s the new Kenworth ADAS offering that pairs a lane-keeping assist system with Bendix Wingman Fusion.

Those talking points are all well and good, but it’s one thing to see them listed out and another to have the chance to walk around the truck, sit in the driver seat and test out the T680 next gen. I had the opportunity to do just that and talk with the knowledgeable truck-minded folks at Kenworth during a pre-launch test drive. Watch the video above for all of the T680 next gen details.
