Kenworth Truck Company revealed the design of its latest product, which is set to be its new on-highway flagship, in a virtual setting. The T680 Next Gen expands on the previous Kenworth T680 design, with innovative and modern features, focusing on aerodynamic design to increase fuel efficiency and reduce drag. Kenworth's new truck comes at a very confusing time for trucking companies, who are dealing with an influx of online ordering and last-mile delivery growth and many are even expanding while others are closing. 

Per Kenworth

  • The Kenworth T680 Next Gen offers technology advancements, including an innovative 15-inch Digital Display, Next Gen SmartWheel, fully LED headlamps, under-the-vehicle airflow management, additional advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), and a sleek high-tech design that balances aerodynamics and serviceability. 
  • The T680 Next Gen includes new aero bumper and hood, turning vanes, durable lower fairing extensions, chassis fairings, wheel well closeouts, 28-inch side extenders, tandem drive axle fairings, and wheel covers, among other features, all to keep the airflow closer to the cab and reduce drag-causing turbulence. The T680 Next Gen is standard with the EPA 2021 PACCAR MX-13 12.9-liter engine and PACCAR Powertrain that also offer strong fuel efficiency gains.
