Kenworth Truck Co.

Kenworth’s T880 vocational truck, which made its debut at the Mid-America Truck Show in March, is available to order.

The company said the vehicle is especially suited for vocational applications, including dump, mixer, refuse and heavy haul.

The offering comes with a Paccar MX-13 engine rated up to 500 horsepower that Kenworth says is lightweight and fuel-efficient for vocational applications and heavy-haul applications exceeding 100,000 pounds.

“The T880 builds upon Kenworth’s 90-year heritage of quality, innovation and technology to produce industry-leading, rugged and reliable vocational trucks,” Preston Feight, Kenworth assistant general manager for sales and marketing, said in a statement. “We’re excited to bring the T880 equipped with the fuel-efficient Paccar MX-13 engine into the market to benefit customers in demanding applications.”
