Kenworth Introduces T680 Driver Academy, 20 Short Videos Highlight T680 Vehicle Operation

Kenworth has introduced its T680 Driver Academy Training video series for the on-highway flagship Kenworth T680.


“We produced 20 short, instructional videos to help new and current Kenworth T680 drivers learn more their T680s,” said Kurt Swihart, Kenworth marketing director. “For example, one short segment shows where all the fill spots are under the hood, and how to replace a headlight bulb. Another segment details all the in-cab switches and identifies the icons, while another discusses the fuse box. And, of course, we have a video on the new PACCAR Transmission, a 12-speed automated transmission for the T680 in linehaul applications.”

According to Swihart, the videos can also be used in new truck orientations at fleets. “When Kenworth T680s enter into a fleet’s operations, the Driver Academy instructional videos can provide a nice overview of the truck’s features, and helpful information for simple servicing while on the road,” he said. “The videos provide a nice head start for the driver in operating the T680, and helps visually explain many of the truck’s key functions.”
