Kenworth Trucks is now offering an aerodynamic steel bumper for its T680 tractor.

The two-piece steel bumper has a rugged, durable design for a higher level of protection in the event of bumper impacts, while retaining the aerodynamics and aesthetics of the Kenworth T680’s current standard composite bumper, the company said.

“It’s the first time Kenworth has offered a steel aerodynamic bumper,” said Erik Johnson, Kenworth on-highway marketing manager. “We expect this new addition for the Kenworth T680 will be a popular option among light vocational applications and customers looking for a little extra protection from impacts.”

The bumper is available for both the new, 3-piece T680 hood at 119-in. BBC optimized for the Paccar MX-13 engine, and the 3-piece, standard length T680 hood at 125-in. BBC.

The new bumper may be ordered painted or chromed.
