Kenworth T680 Road Tour Rolls On
KIRKLAND, WA… Kenworth Truck Company has released the tour stops for the Kenworth T680 Road Tour for the month of June. The tour will visit 100 Kenworth dealers in the United States and Canada throughout the year.
The T680 tour opened on May 8, at MHC Kenworth in Denver. During May and June, the T680 tour truck and comprehensive trailer exhibit will also visit Kenworth dealerships in Alabama, Arizona, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Nebraska, Minnesota, New York, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, and Wisconsin, and the provinces of Ontario and Quebec. (See the schedule below.)
The Road Tour features the new T680, Kenworth’s most aerodynamic truck ever. The T680 is designed to maximize performance in line haul, pickup and delivery, and regional hauling operations. Available with a new 76-inch AERODYNE® sleeper or as a day cab, the T680 is standard with the 12.9-liter PACCAR MX engine.
“It’s exciting to bring the Kenworth T680 Road Tour to fleet and truck operators in the United States and Canada,” said Erik Johnson, Kenworth on-highway marketing manager. “Many people have now heard about the T680, but there’s nothing like experiencing the brand new Kenworth T680 in person. These dealer-hosted events are your best opportunity to sit in the driver’s seat, check out the sleeper, and walk around the truck’s exterior. While there, be sure to experience the interactive, self-guided tour in the spacious T680 trailer.”
The double-expanding, 53-foot T680 tour trailer has nearly 1,000 square-feet of exhibit space. Visitors can watch a feature video on the “Building of the Kenworth T680”. View T680 displays featuring industry-leading aerodynamics, a full day cab, the new sleeper, seats, trim levels and interior color options, robust effortless-closing doors, best in class headlamp system, and test the new air-assisted hydraulic clutch’s ease of operation.
