Kenworth’s T880

The advanced technology and street-smart design—sloped hood, fuel-efficient drive train, aerodynamic and job-specific options, unconventional maneuverability, and supremely comfortable driving environment—make Kenworth’s T880 an ideal truck for your fleet. Spec it lean, dress it down, or order it as a decked-out thoroughbred with factory installed, signature-setting Kenworth exclusives.

LET’S GO FOR A RIDE

The T880 runs on your choice of PACCAR MX engines. With an output range of 405 to 510 hp and 1,450 to 1,850 lb-ft of torque, the 12.9-liter PACCAR MX-13 engine delivers increased hp and torque for the heavier loads. The 10.8-liter, 6-cylinder, in-line PACCAR MX-11 engine is perfect for weight sensitive pickup and delivery, offering an output range of 335 to 430 hp and 1,150 to 1,650 lb-ft of torque.
Superior design and engineering helps you stay on the road logging revenue miles. That subtle distinction will make a big difference to your operation. Durable state-of-the-art materials, reliable long-lived components with less frequent service intervals and easier-to-repair innovative engineering combine to make the T880 perhaps the most productive truck you’ve ever owned.

IF IT GOT ANY SMARTER…

The T880 employs a suite of ingenious technologies and design features that elevate the driving experience to new heights of safety, efficiency, and satisfaction, empower the driver to make better, more informed decisions, and remain connected 24/7.
Real-time information is a must-have for any fleet, but good information isn’t the only thing the new Kenworth Driver Performance Center offers. The quality and clarity of the information is displayed on T880’s five-inch full color, high resolution screen. It tells you everything you need to know about operating in the sweet spot between performance and efficiency. Truck diagnostics and performance indicators pop up to alert the driver. Trip details and multi-route comparisons allow maximum performance every day.
Kenworth’s Driver Performance Assistant module monitors and scores driving technique in real time to encourage behavior that supports better fuel economy and longer brake life.
Plus, it comes standard on every Kenworth with a PACCAR MX-11 or MX-13 engine. The system coaches improvements by showing drivers how to best optimize the truck’s performance: by coasting longer, utilizing the engine brake, anticipating the road ahead, and braking with less force.

PERSONAL ASSISTANT

The NAV+ HD in-dash display acts as your own personal assistant. With a simple touch—or command—to the high-resolution seven-inch color screen, you have direct access to a full range of valuable and productive features, including truck-specific navigation, roadside assistance, vehicle data, hands-free phoning, audio controls (including satellite radio, AM/FM/CD/MP3/USB/Bluetooth), blind-spot camera inputs, and the internet.
NAV+ HD is the first system in the industry to offer optimized routes customized to your truck parameters and your load. With Google Chrome, choose from results and suggestions that appear as you type, including your recent searches and visited websites, while Autofill lets you complete forms with just one tap.
NAV+ HD makes adding a camera system quick and easy. Real-time screen views for up to four cameras are directly and instantly accessible. Pre-loaded virtual gauges include oil temperature, transmission temperature, manifold boost, present and average fuel economy, DPF status, and engine torque.

YOUR NETWORK

From the moment you put your new T880 to work, Kenworth and its extensive dealer network—with more than 380 locations throughout North America—are standing by. You will never be far away from expert parts and service support.
