Ex-Guard Releases Grille Guard Compatible with new generation Kenworth® T680 models

March 2024

Des Moines, IA…  Ex-Guard, the industry leader in semi-truck grille guards, is proud to introduce the HD-CM425 and HD-CM495 grille guards designed to be compatible with '21-'24 Kenworth® T680 Next Gen models featuring Bendix® Wingman® Fusion™ with ACB Stop & Driver Go™ and ACB Auto-Resume™. 

 These guards are an industry first, exclusively designed to enhance safety and decrease downtime without interfering with Bendix’s collision mitigation technology. A patent-pending relief design alleviates a point of interference that other guards inadvertently create because of the offset location of the collision mitigation system on the Kenworth T680. 

 Grille guards are a proven technology to reduce and eliminate fleet expenses related to downtime, towing, collision repair and replacement parts which can total $15,000 or more per collision. Made in the USA, Ex-Guard offers the strongest pound-for-pound front-end protection available. A single hand release latch system provides quick and easy access while maintaining security. Additionally, rattle-free latches, made of the highest quality, ensure smooth and efficient operation. The HD-CM425 provides protection for the bumper, fog lights, and radiator while the larger HD-495 offers complete front-end protection. 

 The HD-CM425 and HD-CM495 are available with ultra-durable sparkling silver or deep black PVC coating. MSRP is $1,670 and $2,230, respectively.
