Kenworth T680 Powered by Gas
Kenworth Truck Company recently announced that the T680
is now available for order with a natural gas–powered engine.
The day cab, 52-inch mid-roof sleeper, and 76 inch sleeper
configurations now can be ordered with the factory-installed
Cummins Westport ISX12 G natural gas engine rated up to
400 horsepower and 1,450 lb.-ft. of torque.
The ISX12 G requires a single fuel source and can run on
either compressed natural gas or liquefied natural gas.
The engine uses a maintenance-free, three-way catalyst and
does not require a diesel exhaust fluid tank, diesel particulate
filter or selective catalytic reduction technology. Kenworth
works with such companies as Agility Fuel Systems, Trilogy
Engineered Solutions, and McNeilus to provide natural gas tanks and fueling systems.
