The new aerodynamic Kenworth T680 has begun production at the Kenworth Truck Company assembly plant in Chillicothe, Ohio.
The first production model of the new, aerodynamic Kenworth T680 rolls off the Kenworth Truck Company assembly plant in Chillicothe, Ohio.
The Kenworth - Chillicothe plant recently hosted a special celebration for employees to mark the start of T680 production. "We're excited to begin building production Kenworth T680s," says Scott Blue, plant manager at Kenworth's Chillicothe facility. "Employees at the facility are trained and ready to assemble this world class truck."
The T680 is Kenworth's most aerodynamic truck ever. It is designed to maximize performance in line haul, pickup and delivery and regional hauling operations. Available with a 76-inch sleeper or day cab configuration, the T680 is standard with the fuel-efficient 12.9-liter Paccar MX engine and optional with the Cummins ISX15 engine.
"The Kenworth T680 has received a very positive response from fleets and truck operators," says Gary Moore, Kenworth general manager and Paccar vice president. "The beginning of T680 production is a landmark moment for Kenworth, its employees and its dealers."
