June 3, 2016 By: Trucking News Staff Tags: Equipment

Kenworth Truck has published a new Kenworth T880 brochure with the latest, comprehensive information on the company’s popular flagship vocational truck.

Kenworth has rolled out new configurations and product enhancements for the T880 since it debuted three years ago. Originally launched as a daycab, the Kenworth T880 is now available with 52-inch and 76-inch mid-roof sleepers, along with a new 40-inch sleeper.

The T880 provides a durable, reliable and productive truck for vocational fleets and truck operators in bulk haul, mixer, dump, heavy haul, oilfield, logging and refuse applications.

The 34-page Kenworth T880 brochure also features the Paccar MX-13 engine and the new Paccar MX-11 engine. The T880 is standard with the Paccar MX-13 engine rated up to 500 horsepower and 1,850 pounds-feet of torque. The 12.9-liter engine provides a lightweight, fuel-efficient engine for vocational applications, including dumps and heavy haul applications over 100,000 pounds.

The Paccar MX-11 engine produces up to 430 horsepower and 1,550 pounds-feet of torque, and is especially for vocational and regional haul customers operating in weight-sensitive applications. The Paccar MX-11 engine is 400 pounds lighter than 13-liter engines and nearly 100 pounds lighter than other 11-liter engines for enhanced fuel economy and payload capacity. The engine also offers optimum performance, industry-leading reliability and durability, and a quiet operating environment for drivers.

Kenworth TruckTech+, Kenworth Driver Performance Technology, Kenworth Nav+ HD system, interior colors and options, and Kenworth seats with superior comfort, adjustability, ride suspension and personal climate control also are featured in the T880 brochure.

Detailed specifications on engine/powertrain, exhaust/aftertreament system, transmission options, electrical, starting and charging, frame, axles and suspension, brakes, wheels/tires, fuel tanks, battery boxes, bumpers, cab/hood/interior, and special equipment and options are included.
