Kenworth says its T680 has now surpassed the 10,000 order milestone since entering full production 15 months ago.
“This has been one of the fastest Kenworth models to achieve the 10,000 truck order milestone in Kenworth’s 90-year history,” said Gary Moore, Kenworth general manager and PACCAR vice president. “It’s a testament to the growing adoption of the Kenworth T680 by a wide range of customers operating in a variety of applications.”
Kenworth has received orders for the T680 from major fleets to owner-operators. The Kenworth T680 is designed to maximize performance in line haul, pickup and delivery, and regional hauling operations. Kenworth initially offered the T680 in day cab or 76-inch sleeper configurations.
Kenworth T680 orders are expected to benefit from the recent addition of the Kenworth T680 52-inch mid-roof sleeper, which is now in production. This option is well-suited for regional hauling applications – including tank, bulk, flatbed, heavy haul and lowboy – where owners are looking for reduced weight to increase payload and where drivers may spend just two or three nights on the road during a typical week.
