Kenworth Truck Co. announced the initial tour stops for its T680 Road Tour, which will visit 100 Kenworth dealers in the United States and Canada throughout the year. The T680 tour opens Tuesday, May 8, at MHC Kenworth in Denver. During May and June, the T680 tour truck and trailer exhibit also will visit Kenworth dealerships in Alabama, Arizona, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Nebraska, Minnesota, New York, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin, and the provinces of Ontario and Quebec.

“It’s exciting to bring the Kenworth T680 Road Tour to fleet and truck operators in the United States and Canada,” says Erik Johnson, Kenworth on-highway marketing manager. “Many people have now heard about the T680, but there’s nothing like experiencing the brand new Kenworth T680 in person. These dealer-hosted events are your best opportunity to sit in the driver’s seat, check out the sleeper and walk around the truck’s exterior. While there, be sure to experience the interactive self-guided tour in the spacious T680 trailer.”

The double-expanding 53-foot T680 tour trailer has nearly 1,000 square-feet of exhibit space. Visitors can watch a feature video on the “Building of the Kenworth T680,” view T680 displays and test the new air-assisted hydraulic clutch. Attendees also can learn more about the Paccar MX engine and the Kenworth NavPlus system with Bluetooth capability for hands-free cell phone calling.
