Kenworth Truck Co. adds T880 sleeper option

The new Kenworth T880 is now available with a 52-in. mid-roof sleeper. The option features a liftable lower bunk and upper storage units on the sleeper’s back wall, including hanging storage. The 52-in. sleeper has 23 in. of room between the seats, and an interior height clearance that enables a driver or passenger up to 6 ft., 4 in. to stand up.

Options on the new 52-in. mid-roof sleeper for the Kenworth T880 include a bunk heater, flat screen TV and premium sound system. Also available is a passenger swivel seat further that expands the living space, and enables the driver to use both the cab and the sleeper when not driving.

The new model has a 2.1-meter wide, stamped aluminum cab with triple-sealed doors, a five-piece Metton hood for easier repairs, air-assisted hydraulic clutch, panoramic windshield complex reflector headlamps, and is available with factory-installed lift axles.
