The Paccar Company’s flagship vocational truck, the T880, has added natural gas as an option for fueling the vehicle.

    The day cab and 52-inch mid-roof sleeper variations of the T880 may now have factory installed 400-horsepower Cummins Westport ISX12 G natural gas engine with 1,450 foot pounds of torque. 

    The Cummins Westport ISX12 G can run on either compressed natural gas or liquefied natural gas fuel.  The engine uses a maintenance-free, three-way catalyst, and does not require a diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) tank, diesel particulate filter (DPF) or selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology. 

    Kenworth stated the company works with such companies as Agility Fuel Systems, Trilogy Engineered Solutions, and McNeilus to provide natural gas tanks and fueling systems.

    “The new, natural-gas powered Kenworth T880 especially appeals to vocational fleets and truck operators interested in the T880’s excellent durability, reliability and driver comfort combined with cost-efficient natural gas.”

    The Kenworth T880 entered full production at late 2013.

    ISX12 G-powered T880s are available with manual, automatic and Eaton UltraShift Plus transmission options, including the 10-speed LAS and 13-speed MHP series
