Kenworth's new T880

Kenworth latest, the T880, is the successor to the venerable T800. It features the same 2.1-meter-wide cab as the T680, and can accommodate heavy front and rear axles as well as multi-axle set ups. It comes standard with the MX13 engine with ratings up to 500 hp and 1850 lb.

Kenworth unveiled the versatile T880 at the Mid-America Trucking Show in March. It can be configured to do almost anything, from heavy-haul to a straight truck. It's the successor-in-waiting to the venerable T800 which has been in service for more than 20 years. Kenworth has no immediate plans to phase out the T800.
