The new Kenworth T880 is now available for order with the Kenworth 52-inch mid-roof sleeper.
The mid-roof sleeper features a liftable lower bunk and upper storage units on the sleeper’s back wall, including hanging storage for drivers to hang their clothes and jackets. A bunk heater, flat screen TV and premium sound system can be added for additional driver comfort.
Specifying the optional passenger swivel seat further expands the living space, and enables the driver to use both the cab and the sleeper as a comfortable space for relaxation when not driving. The 52-inch sleeper also offers excellent interior height clearance for a mid-roof sleeper, enabling a driver or passenger up to 6-foot-4 to easily stand up between the seats.
The Kenworth T880 is standard with the Paccar MX-13 engine rated up to 500 horsepower and 1,850 pounds-feet of torque. The T880 can be ordered with a 116.5-inch BBC hood optimized for the Paccar MX-13 engine or with the 122.5-inch BBC hood.
The Kenworth T880 uses Kenworth’s 2.1-meter wide, stamped aluminum cab, which is robotically assembled. The quiet cab has triple-sealed and robust doors and provides a comfortable 23 inches of room between the seats. The T880 offers the Diamond VIT and Vantage trim levels and two interior color options of Sandstone Tan and Slate Gray.
The T880 also has a 5-piece Metton hood, air-assisted hydraulic clutch, panoramic windshield for enhanced visibility, complex reflector headlamps, excellent maneuverability, and new lightweight, factory-installed lift axles.
Kenworth’s 52-inch sleeper also is available as an option for the aerodynamic Kenworth T680.
