The new, aerodynamic Kenworth T680 has begun production at the Kenworth Truck Company assembly plant in Chillicothe OH. The Kenworth–Chillicothe plant recently hosted a special celebration for employees to mark the start of production.

The T680 is designed to maximize performance in line haul, pick-up and delivery, and regional hauling operations. Available with a 76-inch sleeper or day cab configuration, the truck has a cab width of 2.1 meters. The T680 is standard with the fuel-efficient, 12.9-liter Paccar MX engine and optional with the Cummins ISX15 engine.

The Kenworth T680 Road Tour is traveling to special events hosted by Kenworth dealers throughout the United States and Canada. Follow on-going blog reports from the road at http://kenwortht680tour.com.
