KIRKLAND, Wash. -- Kenworth has announced its popular T680 has reached the 10,000-order mark since entering production 15 months ago.
“This has been one of the fastest Kenworth models to achieve the 10,000 truck order milestone in Kenworth’s 90-year history,” said Gary Moore, Kenworth general manager and Paccar vice-president. “It’s a testament to the growing adoption of the Kenworth T680 by a wide range of customers operating in a variety of applications.”
Kenworth says the orders have come from major fleets and individual owner/operators. The truck is designed for linehaul, pickup and deliver and regional haul applications. The T680 was initially offered in a day cab or 76-inch sleeper configuration, with a 52-inch mid-roof sleeper recently added to the line.
The T680 comes standard with the Paccar MX-13 engine rated at up to 500 hp and 1,850 lb.-ft. of torque.
