2013 Kenworth Road Tour visits Mississauga

The Kenworth Road Tour travelling across the United States and Canada made a stop at Kenworth Truck Centre in Mississauga on October 15th during a special event well attended by customers and industry patrons.

The interactive, self-guided exhibit housed in a state-of-the-art, double-expanding, 53-foot tour trailer with nearly 1,000 square-feet of exhibit space provided customers to learn more about the key features of both the T880 and T680, see the new 12.9-liter PACCAR MX-13 engine, and experience 90 years of Kenworth history.

The new Kenworth T880 is designed to help maximize performance in applications as dump, mixer, refuse, and heavy haul. The T880 dump truck has a standard 122.5-inch BBC hood and a PACCAR MX-13 engine rated at 500-hp and 1,850 lb-ft of torque. The T880 flatbed hauler features the 116.5-inch BBC short hood optimized for the PACCAR MX-13 engine. That truck’s engine is rated at 455-hp and 1,650 lb-ft of torque. The PACCAR MX-13 engine offers excellent fuel efficiency, high reliability and durability, lightweight design, and low cost of ownership.

Transporting the 53-foot tour trailer exhibit was the T680 52-inch sleeper equipped with a PACCAR MX-13 engine rated at 500-hp and 1,850 lb-ft of torque. This new sleeper configuration joins the T680 day cab and T680 76-inch sleeper offerings. All are designed to maximize performance in line haul, pickup and delivery, and regional hauling operations.

Tour Partners for the T880 Road Tour include Bendix, Bridgestone, Chevron, Eaton, Hendrickson and Michelin.
