The new Kenworth T680 Advantage is Kenworth's most fuel-efficient truck. It begins with the optimized powertrain combination of the 2014 PACCAR MX-13 engine and the Eaton Fuller Advantage™ 10-speed automated transmission, and incorporates fuel-economy drive axles (such as a 6x2 configuration) and special factory-installed aerodynamic package. As a result, the T680 Advantage with 76-inch sleeper offers up to a 5 percent fuel economy improvement* compared to last year's T680 76-inch sleeper with 2013 PACCAR MX-13 engine, Eaton UltraShift® PLUS LAS 10-speed transmission, and Dana DSP40 6x4.
