Kenworth’s Predictive Cruise Control is now in production for new Kenworth T680s and T880s with Paccar MX-13 engines.

Predictive Cruise Control combines cruise control with GPS to deliver improved fuel economy for the situation and is available as a factory-installed option. It is available with Eaton UltraShift and Eaton Fuller Advantage automated manual transmissions.

“By anticipating the terrain ahead, Kenworth Predictive Cruise Control ensures that the Paccar MX-13 engine and the transmission are in the most efficient operating mode to increase fuel economy,” said Kevin Baney, Kenworth chief engineer.

In addition to Predictive Cruise Control Kenworth is also offering the Driver Performance Assistant, Driver Shift Aid and Driver Reward systems all designed to get the most from fuel economy. The Driver Performance Assistant is now standard on T680s and T880s with an MX-13 engine.
