T660Kenworth Assistant General Manager for Sales and Marketing Jason Skoog said Friday the company will cease production of its T660 later this year, signaling the end of the line for a truck that once led the company’s charge into modern aerodynamics and fuel efficiency.

“It’s been a good 10 year run,” Skoog says of the truck that has sold 60,000 units since its introduction in 2007.

Kenworth will send the truck out with a limited production run of 500 units.

In the four years since the introduction of the T680 – Kenworth’s current aero champion –  Skoog says many former T660 customers have embraced and transitioned to the newer model. The T660 followed a similar path a decade ago, taking the reins from the T600, which was the first a aerodynamic model to hit the market.
