PROFIT-TUNED PERFORMANCE

The sleek new exterior of the T680 Next Gen incorporates innovative aerodynamic design features meant to squeeze every possible mile from every gallon. Offering you up to six percent in fuel savings from day one.


CUTTING EDGE EXTERIOR STYLING

Wind-cheating features begin up-front with a narrower hood and grille design that cuts neatly through the air. A-pillar turning vanes create less wake next to side windows and smooths airflow around the cab. Integrated front air dams, redesigned chassis fairings, and optional 28-inch side extenders work in tandem to keep airflow tight to the truck. Tandem axle fairings combine with new wind-slick wheel covers to reduce turbulence around the rear wheels and on to the trailer.

FUEL-SAVING INTELLIGENCE

A state-of-the-art, fully-optimized PACCAR powertrain together with innovative technologies such as Predictive Cruise Control, Predictive Neutral Coast and driver shift aids deliver unrivalled fuel-saving performance – automatically.

NEXT GEN EXTERIOR LIGHTING

Headlamp choices:
  • New best-in-class LED headlamps boost lighting efficiency, offering a wider pattern and whiter lighting for better visibility. Signature LED daytime running lights add a signature Kenworth look.
  • Halogen headlamps flow with the hood and integrate daytime running lights and an amber turn signal.

New side turn indicators: An unmistakable 17.3”-long LED side turn indicator, mounted to the trailing edge of the hood, increases visibility for surrounding traffic.

ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL

Reads traffic conditions via front-facing radar sensor and modulates the throttle and the brakes to keep your truck at a pre-set distance from the vehicle in front of it.

COLLISION MITIGATION

Detects when the truck may be about to collide with another vehicle or object, alerts the driver and takes pre-emptive braking action — when necessary — to avoid or considerably reduce the severity of a crash.

SIDE OBJECT DETECTION

Constantly monitors a truck’s blind spots and provides the driver with audible and visual alerts when an object or vehicle has entered these zones — invaluable when making a lane change or negotiating tight delivery sites.

LANE DEPARTURE WARNING

This system continually monitors the truck’s location related to lane markings and automatically emits a distinctive audible warning whenever an unintended lane change (unsignaled) is detected — alerting the driver to make a correction.

LANE KEEP ASSIST

Uses camera input to identify when the truck is departing the lane (at above 37 mph) and “nudges” the truck back into position. Automatically discerns between turn signal indicated and errant lane changes. A disable switch allows for temporary disablement of the system.

TORQUE ASSISTED STEERING

Adds supporting torque to the steering column, enhancing feel and driver comfort while reducing fatigue. Three levels of torque are available based on driver preference, with the amount of assistance determined by vehicle speed (less at higher speeds).

World-Class Accommodations

One look and you know: A Kenworth T680 Next Gen is The Driver’s Truck™. Bold, sweeping lines wrap a world-class cabin equal only to fine automobiles. Groundbreaking technology and true ergonomic comfort elevate the driving experience while reducing fatigue. Space, elegant design, fine craftsmanship and an abundance of luxury details define the environment. And when it’s time to relax, this is the ultimate home away from home.

POWER MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

All the great power management technologies integrated into the T680 have been carried over into the T680 Next Gen. Save fuel and stay comfortable while out of the road with our full suite of options.
