Mid-roof sleeper for Kenworth T680 available for order

June 28, 2013

Customers can now order the new 52-in. mid-roof sleeper for the Kenworth T680 tractor. The sleeper is suited for regional hauling applications such as tank, bulk, flatbed, heavy haul and lowboy where drivers spend only a few nights on the road, Kenworth said.

The 52-in. sleeper offers operators up to approximately 600 lbs. in weight savings compared to the 76-in. sleeper available with the T680.

The T680 with 52-in. sleeper includes a stamped aluminums cab, panoramic windshield, robust door, 3-piece aerodynamic hood, and high quality dash and interior. There is sufficient head room for a driver or passenger up to 6 ft, 4 in. to easily stand between the seats. The optional passenger swivel seat expands the living space into the cab to provide even more comfort for the drivers when parked.

 The mid-roof sleeper also features a liftable lower bunk and upper storage units on the sleeper’s back wall, including ample space for drivers to hang their clothes and jackets, or an optional upper bunk for driving teams. A bunk heater, flat screen TV, premium sound system and factory-installed inverter with optional shore power can be selected for additional comfort.

“With the latest addition, Kenworth now offers the fuel-efficient Kenworth T680 in a day cab, 52-in. sleeper and 76-in. sleeper configuration, which gives more truck operators the opportunity to benefit from the T680’s superior fuel efficiency, outstanding performance, exceptional styling and extraordinary comfort,” said Erik Johnson, Kenworth on-highway marketing manager.
