Kenworth T680 gets predictive cruise

Kenworth’s predictive cruise control system will become a standard offering on T680 trucks as of July 1.

The system combines GPS data and cruise control to improve fuel economy. As the truck ascends and crests a hill, vehicle speed will drop slightly below the set cruise speed and use the truck’s momentum to keep things moving along.
