After introducing a day cab spec for its fuel efficient T680 Advantage in August, Kenworth has announced the addition of a 52-inch mid-roof sleeper option, available in the first quarter of 2017. Landon Sproull, Kenworth general manager, said the new configuration is aimed at regional tank, bulk, flatbed and heavy haul applications.
The announcement was made at the 2016 American Trucking Associations Management Conference & Exhibition in Las Vegas recently.
The 52-inch T680 Advantage mid-roof sleeper is equipped with a number of aerodynamic improvements, including front air dam, mini-kickout fairings to force air around the trailer and drive tires and lower fairing extenders. Factory-installed FlowBelow aerodynamic products, including wheel covers, also are available. The truck also is equipped with Kenworth’s predictive cruise control and neutral coast features to further improve fuel economy.
