Kenworth Adds Nat-Gas Option to T880 Vocational Truck


Kenworth Truck Co. is adding a natural-gas option for its T880 vocational truck.

The truck is available with a Cummins Westport ISX12 G 400 horsepower engine that can run on compressed natural gas or liquefied natural gas.

“The new, natural gas-powered Kenworth T880 especially appeals to vocational fleets and truck operators interested in the T880’s excellent durability, reliability and driver comfort combined with cost-efficient natural gas,” marketing director Kurt Swihart said in a statement.

The natural-gas engine does not require a diesel exhaust fluid tank, diesel particulate filter or selective catalytic reduction technology, according to the company.

Kenworth said the natural-gas option is ideal for dump trucks, refuse, pick and delivery vehicles and other applications operating up to a maximum of 80,000 pounds gross combined vehicle weight.
