Kenworth’s 76-inch mid-roof sleeper is now available as an option for the company’s T680 and T880 trucks.
The configuration was introduced earlier this year at the Mid-America Trucking Show and is designed for liquid bulk tankers, flatbed haulers and other applications that prefer a lighter-weight sleeper option. The 76-inch mid-roof saves 100 pounds of weight and is designed for less aerodynamic drag allowing for greater payload capacity and better fuel economy, says Kenworth.
The sleeper has 6 ½ feet of headroom in the cab, a liftable lower bunk and side storage towers designed with enough space for drivers to hang and store clothes. There is also an optional upper bunk for team drivers or a back wall sleeper storage unit.
With the Kenworth Idle Management system option, vehicles will have a factory-installed, battery-based auxiliary power unit system. Other options include a premium sound system, and a flat screen TV mount.
Both the T880 and T680 come standard with the 12.9-liter Paccar MX-13 engine. For more information, click here.
