Kenworth announces production of Cummins X15N-equipped trucks

May 23, 2024
Kenworth T680 and 880 models with the natural gas engine will begin production in the third quarter of 2024.

Kenworth is set to begin production on its T680 and 880 models spec’d with the Cummins X15N natural gas engine in Q3 2024.

“We’re thrilled to soon begin production of Kenworth trucks with the Cummins X15N natural gas engine,” said Kevin Haygood, Kenworth assistant general manager for sales and marketing. “This new engine offering will be a great alternative solution for Kenworth customers seeking to reduce emissions in applications that require the power and performance they’re accustomed to with diesel engines.”

These X15N-spec’d Kenworth trucks will allow the customer to select factory frame drilling options for back of cab Cummins Clean Fuel Technologies or Hexagon Agility Compressed Natural Gas (CNG)/Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) fuel systems. Clients can also choose non-factory fuel systems for greater flexibility, such as rial-mounted or body-mounted fuel storage systems.

“Our CNG/RNG ProCab (back of cab) and ProRail (side-mount) fuel systems are backed by decades of innovation with millions of miles driven by leading fleets that have chosen to partner with us,” Eric Bippus, Hexagon Agility EVP of sales and systems.

The company delivered a pre-production Kenworth T680 Daycab with the X15N engine to UPS earlier in 2024.
