New Kenworth T700 to have three DEF tank options

Christopher Goodfellow - 19 April 2010

Kenworth's new Class 8 T700 truck will offer drivers three Diesel Exhaust Fluid tank options as standard.

The truck, which has the lowest level of aerodynamic drag in Kenworth's range, will be available with 9, 18 and 27 gallon capacity DEF tanks.

Bill Kozek, Kenworth general manager and PACCAR vice president, said: "We believe that the new wide cab T700 is truly the truck to beat when it comes to outstanding fuel efficiency results, it has 3.5% less drag than the Kenworth T660, our previous model with the least aero drag."
