Some unique features of this truck are its Cummins engine, 76″ mid roof sleeper, X-locks, Espar heater, fridge and upper bunk.
The Cummins engine is known for its horsepower and torque a truck needs in order to tow a heavy load. When maintained properly, trucks with a Cummins engine can expect a long-life span as well. Cummins engines can be found in many vehicles from pickup trucks to 18 wheelers and more. For more than 100 years Cummins engines have produced at a high level.
X-Lock is a new system designed to switch angle grinder accessories with just one click. The X shaped interface of the grinders head allows for easy mounting. X-locks are a switch in the dash that engage all the drive wheels in slippery conditions for better traction. X-locks are great especially for vocational use trucks due to the less than ideal driving conditions. This allows for a much smoother driving experience through tough conditions making your life much easier!
The Espar heater is a fan favorite due to its comfortable warmth which keeps customers happy, especially during the winter. This heater is known for its reliable starting abilities especially under extreme temperatures. For lower profile and weight sensitive applications this sleeper reduces weight by 100 pounds. This allows for a smoother ride for its drivers.
The T680 is the most evolved aerodynamic long-haul tractor of its time.
Manufacturing and design engineers worked closely together during product development of the Kenworth T680. This allowed both engineering departments to learn from each other and position the Kenworth T680 as the best line-haul truck on the road. Two examples of their success were advanced doors and windshields.
Drivers will notice more consistency and precision when closing their doors in the T680. These doors allow for a more tight-fitting cab which makes for a comfortable and quieter work environment for those who drive it. Drivers first interaction with their truck is the door, so this makes for a great first impression.
Another example is the Kenworth truck windshield. Design engineers were asked to replace the current windshield with one that is leak free, has a 27-degree rake angle for improved aerodynamics, while using a stronger and thinner glass. As a result, the Kenworth T680 windshield takes about a quarter of the time to replace compared to other truck makes.
A truck this advanced empowers its drivers to make better and more informed decisions, stay connected 24/7, and creates a better work environment. The T680 is all about helping the driver feel less fatigued and more fulfilled while on their journey.
