The Kenworth T680 in day cab, 52-inch mid-roof sleeper and 76-inch sleeper configurations is now available for order with the factory-installed Cummins Westport ISX12 G natural gas engine rated up to 400 hp and 1,450 lb-ft of torque, which requires a single fuel source and can run on either CNG or LNG. This model has become Kenworth most popular truck of choice for fleets interested in fuel economy and outstanding driver comfort features.
“The new, natural-gas powered Kenworth T680 especially appeals to truck fleets and operators interested in low cost of operation opportunities from the effective combination of the T680’s fuel-saving aerodynamics and cost-efficient natural gas fuel,” said Andy Douglas, Kenworth national sales manager for specialty markets.
The ISX12 G uses a maintenance-free, three-way catalyst and does not require a diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) tank, diesel particulate filter (DPF) or selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology. Kenworth works with such companies as Agility Fuel Systems, Trilogy Engineered Solutions, and McNeilus to provide natural gas tanks and fueling systems.
Kenworth displayed a T680 52-inch sleeper equipped with the Cummins Westport ISX12 G engine powered by CNG at this year’s Mid-America Trucking Show and at the annual Alternative Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo.
