The American Truck Dealers (ATD) named the Kenworth T880 Vocational Truck with PACCAR MX-13 Engine as the 2015 Truck of the Year. The award was announced at the ATD Convention & Expo in San Francisco CA. Other finalists included the International WorkStar 7600 and the Peterbilt Model 567. This year’s competition focused on the vocational and heavy haul/severe duty truck category. During the competition, a panel of judges conducted test drives and evaluated each truck entry in key categories, which included innovation, design, safety, driver ergonomics, and comfort. “The Kenworth T880 establishes a new standard of excellence and builds upon Kenworth’s heritage of quality, innovation and technology to produce industry-leading, rugged and reliable vocational trucks,” said Preston Feight, Kenworth general manager. “This 2015 ATD Truck of the Year award reflects the many positive comments we have received from our customers about the T880’s outstanding performance, driver comfort and quiet cab.”
