Kenworth Announces T680 Road Tour, Six Canadian Stops

KIRKLAND, WA — Kenworth is dispatching its T680 Advantage truck to deliver product and fuel economy information to truck operators in Canada and the U.S.

The company has unveiled its T680 Road Tour, which kicks off at Worldwide Equipment in Lexington, KY on June 23. The tour will make 36 dealer-hosted stops throughout Canada and the U.S., with six of those events in Quebec and Ontario.

On display for viewing and interacting will be the new Kenworth T680 Advantage, the company's most fuel-efficient truck to date. .

The first two weeks of July will see the tour stop in Quebec in St-Nicolas, La Présentation, and Ste-Laurent, while the Ontario legs will be in Ottawa, Stoney Creek and London.

Kenworth says the new T680, featuring Paccar’s 2014 12.9-liter MX-13, Eaton’s Fuller Advantage 10-speed automated transmission, factory-installed aerodynamics kit and new 6x2 drive axles, will haul a 53-foot double-expanding tour trailer from stop to stop.

The new powertrain will offer drivers a fuel economy increase of up to five percent, Kenworth said.

Inside the trailer, guests will experience an interactive exhibit demonstrating Kenworth’s new T880 vocational truck, air-assisted hydraulic clutch, trim levels, fabric options, Kenworth’s NavPlus system, Kenworth’s history and design process and even exterior paint colors.
