Kenworth T880s tackle a Rallycross course

Kenworth T880s tackle a Rallycross course

Located in the Pacific Northwest, DirtFish’s rally courses are carved out of 315 acres and promise the ultimate driving experience. Kenworth trucks decided to put that claim to the test by deploying a small army of T880s to attack the off-road course.

The T880 rolled onto the scene in 2013 and has since seen a steady stream of options and upgrades, most recently with the introduction of a set-forward front axle configuration. For the past year and a half, the vocational truck has been driven by PACCAR power in the form of the MX-11.

Kurt Swihart, Kenworth’s marketing director, was on location to talk about the evolution of the T880 lineup.

Buckle up and come along as I run circles around the rally car course on this episode of On the Road.

The biggest challenge that any lower- or zero-emission powertrain technology faces is that diesel is just too good at its job. It's hyper efficient in its own right in terms of how much energy is pulled out of the fuel in a diesel engine. It creates massive amounts of power--world moving power. And it's widely available. Those are tall hurdles to clear, but new powertrain technologies are getting close. Natural gas, though not new to the market, has, potentially, a bright future ahead of it as the Cummins X15N rolls out, and Kenworth's Sarah Abernethy, powertrain marketing manager, is already hearing about the differences this time around.
