Kenworth Truck Company launched the new Kenworth T880(TM) at the annual
Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville. The new T880 is for vocational
applications, including dump, mixer, refuse, and heavy haul. The Kenworth T880
is available in a 116.5-inch BBC configuration, which includes a new,
five-piece hood made of Metton(R), which is a lightweight, durable composite
material with excellent impact resistance and finished surface. The T880 is
also available in a 122.5-inch BBC standard length with a 5-piece Metton hood.

“Under this new offering for applications ranging from vocational, pickup and
delivery and linehaul, the BBC is 6 inches less than the standard BBC
configuration for the T680 and T880. As a result, there’s enhanced visibility
and a tighter turning radius with improved maneuverability. Plus, the T680 and
T880 provide overall better performance when fully optimized with the
12.9-liter PACCAR MX-13 engine,” said Kevin Baney, Kenworth chief engineer.

The Kenworth T680 is available for the first time in a 119-inch BBC. This
configuration includes a three-piece, bonded aerodynamic hood made of sheet
molding compound (SMC), a lightweight, durable composite material with an
excellent finished surface. SMC not only makes the T680 hood robust, but also
gives it a high paint quality. The T680 also is offered in a 125-inch BBC
standard length, with a 3-piece, SMC hood.

includes a new, five-piece hood made of Metton(R), which is a lightweight,

serviceability and quick replacement.

“The T880’s new 5-piece hoods offer easier and faster repair. The T880 is
available with all the current T800 metal bumpers for easy serviceability and
replacement,” added Baney.

The T680 and T880 feature the stylish, signature Kenworth grille with a
corrosion-resistant aluminum wire mesh that offers superior protection of the
truck’s cooling system components. With the advanced hood assist system,
lifting the hood requires just 35 pounds of opening force. The reduced BBC and
Kenworth standard length hoods for the T680 and T880 are available in day cab
and sleeper configurations.
