Engine/tranny combo they bought? Just curious :)

 

No idea. They just sent the photo. I'm not there with the truck.

 

I will get some more information the next time I'm on site with it.

Awesome power plant!

Yeah, that is a winning combo. As much as I love my D16/ISHift, I would not turn my nose up at the ISX/Ultra. Especially in a NEW T680.

Ours should be here in June. T680 76" condo sleeper with ISX set to 500 HP with 13 speed UltraShift Plus. Scrap got to play with the specs and pulled a bunch of options out of his goodie box. Hope to have a chassis number tomorrow.

GH, post your spec sheet when you get a chance.....have been looking at the T680's.

 

Rick, it is 16 pages long and 1 Mb in size. I can email it to you if you PM an email address. Needless to say, Scrap and I got a little option happy but it should be a nice truck when done. I did find out that pretty much everything behind the Kenworth emblem on the front of the truck has an option that can be changed.

Although the t680 is the current most popular truck in the KW lineup, I still favored the slab side t700 which was discontinued in 2014, an improvement of the t2000 arguably one least attractive looking trucks in recent memory.

I will let scrap explain the KW management reasoning there...

If yo uemail it to me I will put it on a Google Drive with the other ones I have. It will definitely help someone in the future. I'll remove any "proprietary or identifying" information before putting it on the Drive.

Specs emailed to both of you. I went ahead and removed any personal info from the spec sheets so have a bunch of fun playing with them.

Jack,

 

Did you get a chance to put this in Google Drive and do you have a link?

Heartland Express out of Iowa, just purchased 500 of them. First time in 20 years for a Paccar product in their fleet. They have normally ran Navistar and Freightliners. MHC Kenworth bought dealerships in Iowa about a year ago. There might be a new sheriff in town.
