The Kenworth T880S sleeper configurations are focused on heavy haul and severe highway applications where ruggedness is especially required. The 52- and 76-in. sleeper options enable the T880S to meet both overall combination length and weight distribution needs, and are applicable for both Canadian and U.S. markets.

Kenworth’s 76-in. mid-roof sleeper can be ordered with either the optional back wall storage system or folding upper bunk. The optional Kenworth Idle Management System provides a factory-installed, battery-based auxiliary power unit (APU). A premium sound system and flat screen TV mount are among other options.

The  52-in. mid-roof sleeper features a liftable lower bunk and upper storage units on the sleeper’s back wall, including hanging storage for clothes and jackets. A bunk heater, flat screen TV, premium sound system and factory-installed inverter with optional shore power are available for additional comfort. The many driver comfort amenities help give the Kenworth T680's 52-in. mid-size sleeper the feel of a larger sleeper.

Both sleepers provide up to 6-foot-4 interior height clearance. Specifying the 180-degree optional passenger swivel seat further expands the living space.

The T880S is offered with a set-forward front axle ranging from 14,600 lbs. to 22,800 lbs., and is standard with the PACCAR MX-13 engine with up to 510 hp and 1,850 lb.-ft of torque. For weight-sensitive applications, the 10.8-liter PACCAR MX-11 engine is 400 lbs. lighter than larger displacement engines, and provides up to 430-hp and 1,650 lb.-ft of torque.
