Kenworth’s T680 52-inch mid-roof sleeper, upfit with the company’s fuel efficient Advantage Package, is now available for order
Optimized for regional haul and less-than truckload operations, the truck features a powertrain with either the Paccar MX-13 or MX-11 engine, Eaton Fuller Advantage series 10-speed automated transmission and Paccar’s new proprietary drive axle.
The 52-inch mid-roof sleeper configuration offers new aerodynamic elements including a front air dam, flared-out fairings, lower sleeper fairing extenders and FlowBelow wheel covers that enhance fuel economy by effectively redirecting airflow around the chassis, sleeper and trailer. Other notable fuel-efficiency features are Kenworth’s Predictive Cruise Control, Neutral Coast, and Driver Performance Assistant.
The T680 Advantage Package provides customers running the 52-inch mid-roof sleeper with up to a 6 percent fuel economy benefit, Kenworth says, compared to a standard Kenworth T680 52-inch mid-roof sleeper running the previous generation of MX-13 engine, Eaton Fuller automated transmission and standard drive axles.
The sleeper features a liftable lower bunk and upper storage units on the back wall, with ample space for drivers to hang their clothes and jackets, plus an optional upper bunk for driving teams. It also offers an optional passenger swivel seat that expands the living space into the cab to provide even more comfort for the drivers when parked. The design also provides sufficient head room for a driver or passenger up to 6-foot-4 to easily stand up between the seats. Drivers appreciate the 2.1-meter wide cab, reduced interior noise levels, adjustable advanced suspension seats with climate control, air-assisted hydraulic clutch, ergonomic dash, easy-to-use Driver Performance Center, and LED interior lighting.
