KIRKLAND, Wash. — The Kenworth Merchandise Collection now offers new merchandise featuring the all-new Kenworth T680, Kenworth’s most recent aerodynamic truck introduced last March at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville.

There are nearly 20 Kenworth T680 items in the Kenworth Merchandise Collection. Heading the list is a precision-crafted, 1:53 scale, diecast model of the Kenworth T680 with 76-inch sleeper.

The T680 model, which is 6 1/4 inches long and 3 inches tall, features the signature Kenworth gold color.

The T680 scale models are finely detailed with an opening hood to reveal the Paccar MX engine, and opening doors to view into the interior. The roof is also removable revealing the spacious interior complete with a rotating table, and the passenger seat is reversed to accentuate the key features of the T680.

Other T680 key gift items include a special gold-outlined hoodie, sport-wick half zip pullover, gold polo shirt, T-shirt, three caps (U.S. made, liquid metal flames, and sandwich), backpack, and rolling duffel travel bag (that fits perfectly inside the T680 sleeper cabinet as if it were custom-designed).  There also is a special translucent tumbler travel mug (that fits into the T680’s cup holder without tipping), toiletry bag, pen, lapel pin, and metal key tag. There’s even a specially minted, commemorative T680 pewter holiday ornament.

The Kenworth T680, which has received U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) SmartWay designation, is designed to maximize performance in line haul, pickup and delivery, and regional hauling operations. Available with a new 76-inch sleeper or as a day cab, the T680 is standard with the 12.9-liter Paccar engine, which offers excellent fuel efficiency, high reliability and durability, lightweight design, and low cost of ownership.

Kenworth also offers a wide range of merchandise in addition to T680 items. The extensive Kenworth Merchandise Collection consists of nearly 250 items for trucking operators and fleets interested in purchasing officially licensed Kenworth merchandise. Key categories include Kenworth T680 merchandise, Kenworth T700 merchandise, Paccar MX engine, caps, apparel, die-cast models, drinkware, gifts and recognition, holiday, kids’ items, sports and recreation, and workplace.

Kenworth T680 branded merchandise is available at local Kenworth dealerships in the U.S. and Canada. You can also order online at www.ShopKenworth.com, or call (877) 705-3314 toll free from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Pacific Time).
