Focus On… Kenworth T880S

The new T880S from Kenworth made its debut in March 2017, and already it’s getting more order activity than the trucks it will eventually replace. That suggests customer acceptance of this new chassis is pretty strong. To see what all the excitement is about, Equipment editor Jim Park took a couple of different trucks for a spin on a recent trip to Kenworth’s Seattle, Washington headquarters.
