Kenworth T880 Adds NG Option
The Kenworth T880 day cab and 52-in. mid-roof sleeper configurations can now be spec’d with a factory-installed Cummins Westport ISX12 G 400-hp natural gas engine with 1,450 lb ft of torque. It’s available with manual, automatic, and Eaton’s UltraShift Plus transmission options, including the 10-speed LAS and 13-speed MHP series.
The natural gas option is seen to be useful for T880 dump, mixer, refuse, and pickup-and-delivery trucks, and others operating with up to a maximum of 80,000-lb gross combined vehicle weight (GCVW).
The Cummins Westport ISX12 G can run on either CNG (compressed natural gas) or LNG (liquefied natural gas) fuel systems. The engine uses a maintenance-free, three-way catalyst and does not require a diesel exhaust fluid tank, diesel particulate filter, or selective catalytic reduction technology.
