KENWORTH added two new ratings for the 12.9-liter Paccar MX-13 engine available for the T680, T880 and W990.

The second rating, 455 hp with 1,650/1,850 lb.-ft. of torque, is optimized for fuel-conscious heavy-haul operators and pro- vides additional torque in the top two gears while climbing a hill, eliminating the need to downshift.
