Kenworth Truck has brought no fewer than four CNG-fueled Class 8 trucks to ACT Expo 2104. Three have the new 11.9-liter, up-to-400-horsepower ISX12 G engine from Cummins Westport, and one has the 8.9-liter ISL G – of which more than 20,000 have been sold.

“Leading the way,” says a pre-show release, is the new Kenworth T680. “The new natural gas-powered Kenworth T680 offers fuel-saving aerodynamics and cost-efficient natural gas to provide excellent operating cost benefits,” said Kenworth vocational marketing manager Alan Fennimore.

Kenworth is showing a CNG-powered T680 with the ISX12 G engine in at Booth 1157. The truck will be available for sale later this year.

Kenworth is also exhibiting a T660 extended day cab and a short hood T800 roll on/roll off, also in a CNG configuration, and also powered by the ISX12 G.

A CNG-powered Kenworth T440 pickup-and-delivery vehicle with the 8.9-liter ISL G Cummins Westport (Booth 1150) rounds out the ACT Expo display.

Trilogy ES back-of-cab and rail-mounted CNG tank arrays may be seen on the T680 and T800 trucks, respectively, and there’s a rail-mounted rig by Agility on the T440. Agility is at Booth 1145.

Fellow Paccar company Peterbilt is showing two heavy duty natural gas trucks at Booth 357: the aerodynamic, on-highway Model 579 and the all-purpose vocational Model 567. Both of the CNG-fueled vehicles are powered by the 11.9-liter ISX12 G.

The new 579 and 567 “will provide our natural gas customers with the industry’s most innovative, advanced vehicles with new state-of-the-art CNG systems,” said Peterbilt sales and marketing director Robert Woodall.
Peterbilt is featuring a back-of-cab cylinder array by Quantum (Booth 1833), with Quantum’s Q-Lite brand Type IV cylinders for a capacity of 123 diesel gallon equivalents.
