Kenworth Truck Co. has announced a three-month road tour for customers to see first-hand the advantages of its T680 Advantage tractor.

(For a video overview of the T680 Advantage package, click here)

The T680Advantage features a Paccar MX-13 engine, Eaton Fuller Advantage 10-speed automated transmission, fuel-economy drive axles (such as a 6x2 configuration) and a special factory-installed aerodynamic package. As a result, the T680 Advantage with 76-in. sleeper offers up to a 5% fuel economy improvement compared to last year’s T680 76-in. sleeper with 2013 Paccar MX-13 engine, Eaton UltraShift Plus LAS 10-speed transmission, and Dana DSP40 6x4 axle, Kenworth said.

The Kenworth T680 Advantage Road Tour will visit 36 Kenworth dealer-hosted events in the United States and Canada. The tour begins June 23 at Worldwide Equipment in Lexington, Ky. The double-expanding, 53-ft. tour trailer features an interactive, self-guided exhibit. Visitors can learn more about the T680 Advantage, new Kenworth T880 vocational truck, the 12.9L MX-13 engine, and Kenworth history.

 The tour trailer also includes the 2.1-meter wide cab used by the T680 and T880, new 52-in. sleeper complex reflector headlamps, air-assisted hydraulic clutch, electric-over-air dash switches, trim levels, exterior paint color samples and interior fabric options, and the Kenworth NavPlus system. There are videos on the T680 and T880 design process, robotic cab construction, Kenworth history, and a display of Kenworth’s prestigious awards.
