Kenworth Assistant General Manager for Sales and Marketing Jason Skoog said Friday the company will cease production of itsT660 later this year, signaling the end of the line for a truck that onceled the company’s charge into modern aerodynamics andfuel efficiency.
“It’s been a good 10 year run,” Skoog says of the truck that has sold 60,000 units since its introduction in 2007.
Kenworth will send the truck out with a limited production run of 500 units.
In the four years since the introduction of the T680 Kenworth’s current aero champion Skoog says many former T660 customers have embraced and transitioned to the newer model. The T660 followed a similar path a decade ago, taking the reins from the T600, which was the first a aerodynamic model to hit the market.
