The Kenworth T880 — the flagship of Kenworth’s outstanding vocational trucks — is now available for order.

Introduced at the 2013 Mid-America Trucking Show, the Kenworth T880 is especially suited for vocational customers who demand a durable and reliable truck, including dump, mixer, refuse and heavy haul applications.

The Kenworth T880 is standard with the PACCAR MX-13 engine rated up to 500 hp (373 kW) and 1,850 lb.-ft. of torque. The PACCAR MX-13 provides a lightweight, fuel-efficient engine for vocational applications, including dumps and heavy haul applications more than 100,000 lbs. (45,359 kg). The T880 can be ordered with a 116.5-in. (296 cm) BBC hood optimized for the PACCAR MX-13 engine or with the 122.5-in. (311 cm) BBC hood.

The Kenworth T880 features a panoramic windshield for enhanced visibility, quiet cab with triple-sealed and robust doors, 5-piece Metton hood for easier and faster repairs, air-assisted hydraulic clutch, complex reflector headlamps, enhanced maneuverability, and new lightweight, factory-installed lift axles.

The T880 uses Kenworth’s 6.9 ft. (2.1 m), stamped aluminum cab, which is robotically assembled. The cab has a comfortable 23 in. (58 cm) of room between the seats. The T880 offers the premium Diamond VIT and Vantage trim levels and two interior color options of sandstone tan and slate gray.

“The Kenworth T880 offer truck operators and fleets a very comfortable work environment for drivers, lower operating cost and enhanced productivity,” said Preston Feight, Kenworth assistant general manager of sales and marketing. “The T880 builds upon Kenworth’s 90-year heritage of quality, innovation and technology to produce industry-leading, rugged and reliable vocational trucks. We’re excited to bring the T880 equipped with the fuel-efficient PACCAR MX-13 engine into the market to benefit customers in demanding applications.”
