Kenworth Truck Company
now offers the Cummins Signature 600, Cummins ISX and Caterpillar C-16 600-horsepower
engines as options for its T2000 on-highway model.
"We know that some
drivers want and need the power that comes with a 600-horsepower engine,"
Kurt Freitag, Kenworth product marketing manager, said in a released statement.
"But, they're also interested in running a lighter, more aerodynamic
model like the T2000 since fuel can be their number one operating cost. We've
made the Cummins Signature 600, Cummins ISX and Caterpillar C-16 600-horsepower
engines available in the T2000 for those interested customers."
