The Kenworth T880S with a set-forward front axle is now available for order with Kenworth’s 52-inch and 76-inch mid-roof sleepers.

The T880S sleeper configurations are focused on heavy haul and severe highway applications. The two sleeper options enable the T880S to meet both overall combination length and weight distribution needs and are applicable for both Canadian and U.S. markets, the company says.

Kenworth’s 76-inch mid-roof sleeper can be ordered with either the optional back wall storage system or folding upper bunk. The optional Kenworth Idle Management System provides a factory-installed, battery-based auxiliary power unit (APU). A premium sound system and flat screen TV mount are among other options available.

The Kenworth 52-inch mid-roof sleeper features a liftable lower bunk and upper storage units on the sleeper’s back wall, including hanging storage for clothes and jackets. A bunk heater, flat screen TV, premium sound system and factory-installed inverter with optional shore power are also available.

Both sleepers enable a driver or passenger up to 6-foot-4-inches to easily stand up between the seats, and specifying the 180-degree optional passenger swivel seat further expands the living space, Kenworth says.

The T880S is offered with a set-forward front axle ranging from 14,600 pounds to 22,800 pounds, and is standard with the PACCAR MX-13 engine with up to 510 hp and 1,850 lb-ft of torque. For weight-sensitive applications, the 10.8-liter PACCAR MX-11 engine is 400 pounds lighter than larger displacement engines, and provides up to 430-hp and 1,650 lb-ft of torque, the company says.
