Kenworth expands range of CNG-powered vehicles

Kenworth – a part of Paccar, along with DAF, Leyland and Peterbilt – expands their range of vehicles powered by gaseous fuels by launching a new version of T680, first introduced two years ago.

Kenworth T680 has become a very popular truck quickly after its market launch. It’s been often chosen by fleet operators due to low fuel consumption and high work comfort for drivers. T680 is offered in versions with three different types of cabs: one daily cab and two sleeper cabs.

Vehicles with the daily cab and one of sleeper cabs will be offered equipped with gas-powered Cummins Westport ISX12 G engine with power of up to 400 PS and maximum torque of up to 1,970 Nm. The vehicle with this type of engine (powered by CNG) and a sleeper cab was presented in late March at Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, KY.

Cummins Westport ISX12 G is a mono-fuel gas power unit that may run on compressed (CNG) or liquefied (LNG) natural gas. Both types of fuel provide large savings, and a low emission of exhaust gas is ensured by a three-way catalytic converter that doesn’t require the use of additional equipment and consumables necessary in diesel engines (AdBlue tank, particulate matter filter or SCR catalyst).

Cummins Westport ISX12 G is also used in other Kenworth models (T660 and T800).

In terms of gas tanks and their casing, Kenworth cooperates with the following companies: Agility Fuel Systems, McNeilus and Trilogy Engineered Solutions.
