The aerodynamic Kenworth T680 with the PACCAR MX-13 engine was named the 2013 Heavy Duty Commercial Truck of the Year by the American Truck Dealers (ATD) at the annual ATD Convention and Expo in Orlando, Florida. “The Kenworth T680, with its 2.1-meter-wide cab, establishes a new standard of excellence in the industry with its superior fuel efficiency, exceptional aerodynamic styling, and premium automotive interior,” says Gary Moore, Kenworth general manager and PACCAR vice president.

The Kenworth T680 is available in 76” sleeper and day cab configurations and is standard with the PACCAR MX-13 engine rated up to 500 hp and 1850 lb.-ft. of torque. The stamped aluminum cab is robotically assembled at Kenworth factories and has been eagerly embraced by customers and dealers. The Kenworth T680 has earned the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) SmartWay® Designation and is the most aerodynamic truck in Kenworth’s 90-year history. Kenworth earned the 2011 ATD Heavy Duty Commercial Truck of the Year for its T700 model.

The T680 was selected for the award by a panel of leading truck magazine journalists. The T680 received excellent reviews following test drives to evaluate each entry in key categories, including innovation and design, safety and driver satisfaction.
