Kenworth announced last week it has once again put together an “Everyday Heroes” T680 with a paint scheme and graphics supporting Truckers Against Trafficking.

The truck will be auctioned off by Ritchie Bros. on May 17 in Phoenix. Proceeds from the sale of the truck, which has a $162,000 retail value, will go directly to Truckers Against Trafficking. The rig features a 76-inch sleeper, 485-hp Paccar MX-13 and a Paccar 12-speed automated transmission.

The truck will make its first public appearance Jan. 15 at the National Mall in Washington, D.C., for an introductory press conference for the truck. The rig will then make stops at the American Trucking Associations’ Technology and Maintenance Council’s 2019 annual meeting in Atlanta on March 18-21, then at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville on March 28-30.
