KIRKLAND, Wash. — The new Kenworth T800 Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) truck brochure, featuring Kenworth’s latest low emissions solution, is now available from Kenworth dealers in the US and Canada.

Kenworth says that a typical Class 8 LNG truck can reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) and greenhouse gas emissions by up to 33% and 20%, respectively, compared to a diesel-fueled truck. In the US, the cleaner burning LNG fuel, typically costs about US$1 per gallon less than the diesel equivalent fuel, adds the company.

Kenworth indicates that it is the first heavy-duty truck manufacturer to offer an LNG fuel system based on the Cummins ISX platform as a factory-installed option, providing “optimum” system integration.
