The American Truck Dealers named the Kenworth T880 Vocational Truck as the 2015 Truck of the Year at the ATD convention and Expo in San Francisco. Other finalists included the WorkStar 7600 and the Peterbilt Model 567.
The specific Kenworth T880 chosen for the award was equipped with a PACCAR MX-13 engine.
Judges selected the T880 for its exceptional handling, power torque and outstanding visibility from all quarters of the driver’s seat. A panel of journalists selected the winners from categories including innovation, design, safety and driver satisfaction.
Last year’s winner in the heavy-duty category was the International ProStar with Cummins ISX15.
