Announced this March (2012), Kenworth Truck Co. is expanding its extensive line of industry-leading green products by offering the Cummins Westport ISX12 G heavy duty natural gas engine for use in regional haul, vocational and refuse markets.

Fuel-efficient hybrids to enter full production this summer

Kenworth will begin full production of medium duty, diesel-electric hybrid trucks this summer. The fuel-efficient, hybrid option will be offered on its new T270 Class 6 and T370 Class 7 conventional models, and trucks will be built at the PACCAR plant in Ste-Therese, Quebec. Kenworth’s goal is to enhance fuel economy by up to 30 percent in pickup and delivery applications and up to 50 percent in utility operations. “We’re excited to introduce the new Kenworth medium duty hybrids into production this summer as we help customers enhance fuel economy and reduce emissions,” said Gary Moore, Kenworth assistant GM for marketing and sales. “There is tremendous interest in our Kenworth hybrids, and excellent results have been reported by customers that were part of last year’s limited hybrid production.” Moore noted that purchasers of Ken-worth hybrids equipped with a PAC-CAR PX-6 engine and the Eaton hybrid system, may qualify for a maximum federal tax credit of $6,000 (Class 6) and $12,000 (Class 7).
