KIRKLAND, Wash., October 31, 2008 The new Kenworth T800 Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) truck brochure featuring Kenworth™s latest low emissions solution is now available from Kenworth dealers in the United States and Canada.

A typical Class 8 LNG truck may reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) and greenhouse gas emissions by up to 33 percent and 20 percent, respectively, compared to a diesel-fueled truck. The cleaner burning LNG fuel typically costs about $1 per gallon less than the diesel equivalent fuel.  

Kenworth is the first heavy duty truck manufacturer to offer an LNG fuel system based on the Cummins ISX platform as a factory-installed option, providing optimum system integration. The Kenworth T800™s LNG-fueled engine provides up to 450 hp and 1,650 lb-ft of torque and offers outstanding performance and efficiency. The T800 offers manual transmission options, a large dash-mounted display to monitor the LNG level, and certification from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and California Air Resources Board (CARB). Kenworth is now taking orders for T800 LNG trucks.
