Kenworth T680 and T880 Add Option for DEF Tank with Integrated Steps

Kenworth has introduced a new, optional DEF tank with integrated steps designed for the Kenworth T680 and Kenworth T880.

With the option, the access steps to the deck plate are mounted directly over the DEF tank without requiring additional frame space. Instead, the placement of the steps can free up as much of 16 inches of valuable frame space, which is ideal for truck operators with constrained frame space layouts. 

The resulting shorter wheelbase can further enhance the maneuverability of the T680 and T880, especially in tight urban areas or jobsites.

The option is available with Kenworth’s 21-gallon, medium-size aerodynamic DEF tanks for use with the T680 and T880.  The new option is not available with full or partial chassis fairings.
