Detailed explanation of the new generation of Kenworth T680
Compared with the traditional American long-head car, the T680 has become more rounded and has softer lines. The whole car looks shorter and more compact than the old "Optimus Prime" and other models. So what is the purpose of this?
Of course it is for lower drag coefficient and fuel consumption. As we all know, the United States is a country that consumes a lot of fossil energy, and the waste of energy is extremely serious, which has a lot to do with the lower oil prices in the United States. But after all, as a commercial vehicle, T680 still has to take into account the wallets of American and Australian card friends. Therefore, in recent years, all American long-head truck manufacturers have begun to conduct more in-depth research on styling, wind resistance and power chain to reduce Fuel consumption.
The T680 has an additional air outlet behind the steering wheel. After the T680 is driven, the air passing through the air intake grille follows the air outlets on both sides to discharge the excess wind and the heat of the engine, thereby enhancing the heat dissipation of the engine and taking care of it. Dual design to reduce wind resistance.
The truck headlights are also one of the highlights of the T680 design. The all-LED light source not only illuminates longer distances. After adjustments by Kenworth engineers, the Kenworth logo, turn signal and daytime running lights are also added to the daytime running lights. The car lights share a light group. On both sides are the iconic yellow position lights of American models, which also meets the requirements of American laws and regulations. In addition, this set of headlights can also be intelligently controlled to prevent the surface of the headlights from being disturbed by water mist and steam Illuminance.
