Kenworth adds grille option

April 27, 2020
T880S with set-forward axle now available with fixed grille for trucks featuring front-mounted equipment

The Kenworth T880S with set-forward front axle recently added a new fixed grille option.

A radiator-mounted grille now is available for the model equipped with the 114-inch BBC short hood. The new option allows the hood to be opened in applications where equipment is mounted to the front of the T880S.

“The fixed grille is an excellent option for truck operators who use the Kenworth T880S as snowplows, cranes, vacuum trucks or other applications that require equipment mounted in front of the hood,” said Laura Bloch, Kenworth assistant general manager for sales and marketing.

The T880S is offered with a set-forward front axle ranging from 14,600 pounds to 22,800 pounds, and is standard with the PACCAR MX-13 engine with up to 510 horsepower and 1,850 pound-feet of torque. For weight-sensitive applications, the 10.8-liter PACCAR MX-11 engine is 400 pounds lighter than larger displacement engines, and provides up to 430 horsepower and 1,650 pound-feet of torque.
