Kenworth’s 40-inch sleeper available for order

KIRKLAND, Wash. – Kenworth launched its new 40-inch sleeper for the T880 and T680 model trucks, providing a 260-pound weight savings compared to the 52-inch sleeper option.

The 40-inch sleeper provides more than 22 cubic feet of storage space, has storage shelves and a cellphone cubby. At 24 inches wide, 78 inches long with a 90-degree tilt, the sleeper provides ease-of-access to under-bunk storage.

“Kenworth’s expanded and enhanced sleeper lineup for the T880 and T680 gives our customers greater flexibility and choice in meeting their specific application requirements, while also providing driver comfort in a lighter weight sleeper package,” said Kurt Swihart, Kenworth marketing director. “The 40-inch sleeper has generated interest from our customers from the minute we announced it was under development.”

Customers can also order an optional 19-inch by 36-inch stationary or sliding window on the back of the sleeper to help operate in tight locations.

Other additional options include LED marker lights, extreme temperature insulation, premium speakers, slide extenders and stainless steel sun visors.
