KENWORTH SMART TECHNOLOGIES
When you need real-time diagnostics to maximize uptime, Kenworth TruckTech+ and NAV+HD comes equipped in the T680.
PREDICTIVE CRUISE CONTROL
KW Predictive Cruise Control utilizes GPS data to anticipate topographic changes, and adjusts RPM and speed so that fuel economy is maximized.
ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL
Forward radar monitors and maintains a constant following distance from any slower-moving vehicle ahead. This feature can also anticipate and act to avoid an imminent collision.
Kenworth’s integrated powertrain has been engineered to maximize fuel economy, reliability and performance while delivering The World’s Best® driving experience. Components work together seamlessly to lower engine RPMs — regardless of road speed, reducing friction and fuel consumption yet delivering all the power drivers demand.
Start with the PACCAR MX-13 engine, pound for pound the most efficient powerplant ever designed for heavy-duty trucks. The 10-speed automated manual transmission takes the guesswork out of shifting, reduces fatigue and simplifies operation for drivers of all experience levels.
PACCAR’s new 40K tandem rear axle — the industry’s premier line haul axle — is precisely matched to deliver power to the asphalt with minimum loss. Featuring an advanced, robust design that trims vehicle weight by up to 150 pounds, the PACCAR axle delivers more fuel efficiency, uptime and payload.
Powering the Kenworth T680 are the high quality and reliability of the PACCAR MX engines. The 12.9-liter PACCAR MX-13 engine is designed to meet the demands of linehaul heavy duty truck applications — delivering the increased horsepower and torque needed to move large payloads with ease, even on steep grades. The 10.8-liter, six-cylinder, in-line PACCAR MX-11 engine is perfect for weight sensitive pickup and delivery, less-than truckload and regional applications.
