The 76-inch mid-roof sleeper is optimized for bulk tank, flatbed and other truck operators who prefer a lower roof, aerodynamic, light weight truck that has the comforts of Kenworth’s 76-inch high-roof sleeper for driver retention and recruitment. The new sleeper offers a 100-pound weight savings for additional payload capacity and profit opportunity, and less aerodynamic drag for low load height operations with up to a 5 percent fuel economy savings*.
The new mid-roof sleeper has 6-1/2 feet of headroom to give tall drivers ease of movement, a roomy work environment, lift-able lower bunk, and side storage towers with ample space to hang clothes. And the back wall can be configured with an optional upper bunk for team drivers or an excellent back wall sleeper storage unit. A premium sound system and a mount for the customer to install a flat screen TV for even more driver enjoyment are among the other options available.
“Our new, sleeper configuration for the T680 and T880 provides customers with an excellent opportunity for enhanced fuel efficiency and driver comfort in their efforts for cost-effective operations and successful driver retention and recruitment,” said Kurt Swihart, Kenworth marketing director.
With the new sleeper, both the Kenworth T680 and T880 can be configured with the 76-inch mid-roof sleeper, 52-inch regional sleeper, and day cab. The T680 also is available with the 76-inch high-roof sleeper. The Kenworth T680 and T880 with the PACCAR MX-13 engine have both been awarded the ATD Heavy Duty Commercial Truck of the Year awards.
