The Kenworth T680 is now available for order with the combination of the PACCAR MX-11 engine and the new PACCAR Automated Transmission, which is designed for linehaul and regional haul applications up to 110,000 lbs. gross vehicle weight.
The PACCAR MX-11 engine offers up to 430 HP and 1,650 lb./ft. of torque, and is 400 lbs. lighter than 13-liter engines. Designed from the ground up, the PACCAR Transmission is up to 105 lbs. lighter than comparable transmissions, allowing for greater payloads.
The PACCAR Transmission is paired with Kenworth’s new column-mounted shifter, putting gear selection and engine brake controls at the driver’s fingertips for better ergonomics and improved performance. The shifter position on the steering wheel column also frees up dash space by eliminating engine brake control switches.
