“Kenworth has a 90-year heritage of manufacturing industry-leading trucks, and
the new T880 and T680 are the latest in that distinguished line of quality,
innovative trucks,” said Alan Fennimore, Kenworth vocational marketing
manager.

“For the road tour, we’ve developed an interactive, self-guided exhibit hosted
in a state-of-the-art, double-expanding, 53-foot tour trailer. Customers will
especially enjoy taking some time to learn more about the key features of both
the T880 and T680, see the 12.9-liter PACCAR MX-13 engine, and experience 90
years of Kenworth history,” he said.

Introduced at the Mid-America Trucking Show, the Kenworth Road Tour exhibit is
available for viewing during the Mid-America Trucking Show through Saturday,
March 23, in the parking lot outside the South Wing of the Kentucky Fair &
Exposition Center.

The new Kenworth T880, which sets an industry standard for vocational trucks,
is designed to help maximize performance in such applications as dump, mixer,
refuse, and heavy haul. Several T880s will be included on the tour. The
Kenworth T680, which has received U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
SmartWay(R) Designation, is designed to maximize performance in line haul,
pickup and delivery, and regional hauling operations.

Both the T880 and T680 are standard with the PACCAR MX-13 engine, which offers
excellent fuel efficiency, high reliability and durability, lightweight
design, and low cost of ownership. The PACCAR MX-13 now has ratings up to 500
hp and 1,850 lb-ft of torque.

Inside, the Kenworth Road Tour trailer has nearly 1,000 square-feet of exhibit
space. One side is dedicated to the vocational T880 and the other side to the
on-highway T680. Visitors can examine the cab common to both models, new T880
hood, complex reflector headlamps, air-assisted hydraulic clutch, trim levels,
exterior paint color samples and interior fabric options, new 52-inch sleeper,
Kenworth NavPlus(R) system with Bluetooth capability for hands-free cell phone
calling, and electric-over-air dash switches. There are videos featuring the
design process for the T880 and T680, robotic cab construction, and Kenworth
history – along with a 90th anniversary wall and a display of Kenworth’s other
prestigious awards.

There is also a wall display of Kenworth’s leading partner suppliers. Tour
Partners for the T880 Road Tour include Bendix, Bridgestone, Chevron, Eaton,
Hendrickson and Michelin.

Stay tuned for more details on the upcoming tour schedule.
