Kenworth T680 Features Stunning Beautiful Design for U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree Tour

December 2020

A Kenworth T680 is now adorned with a stunning exterior graphics design and in Colorado to begin preparations for the 2020 U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree. Apex Transportation in Henderson, Colo., will use the Kenworth T680 to transport the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree from the Thursday, Nov. 5, tree-harvesting ceremony in the Uncompahgre National Forest to Washington, D.C. The T680 with the head-turning, beautiful design will transport the tree on a nearly 2,000-mile journey, which will include a series of outdoor community celebrations, primarily within the state of Colorado.

 The graphics package features a decorated Christmas tree and the U.S. Capitol Building, 14,023-foot Wilson Peak in Colorado’s Uncompahgre National Forest, and “From Colorful Colorado to America’s Front Steps.” This year’s logo, placed on the T680 roof, incorporates the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree theme “Experience Your Nature,” names of the Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre and Gunnison (GMUG) National Forests in western Colorado, and Colorado state flag.

 The Kenworth T680 is equipped with a 76-inch sleeper and the PACCAR Powertrain featuring the 455-hp PACCAR MX-13 engine, PACCAR 12-speed automated transmission, and PACCAR 40K tandem rear axles. The truck is also specified with Kenworth’s “Driver’s Studio” with 180-degree passenger swivel seat and 90-degree rotating table, Kenworth Diamond VIT interior, premium Kenworth GT703 seats, predictive cruise control, Kenworth Nav+HD system, liftable lower bunk and stowable upper bunk, and Kenworth TruckTech+® Remote Diagnostics.
