Predictive Cruising and GPS

Kenworth Predictive Cruise Control combines GPS and cruise control that provides the best possible fuel efficiency. Based on topographical GPS data inputs, Predictive Cruise Control adjusts the cruising speed of a vehicle. When the vehicle reaches particular terrain, such as rolling hills, the system regulates the cruising speed. In turn, this maximizes performance and efficiency.

For example, in the case of a heavy truck ascending and cresting a hill, Predictive Cruising Control will allow the vehicle speed to dip slightly below the programmed cruise speed to compensate. This improves fuel efficiency since the vehicle can now maintain the predetermined cruising speed by utilizing momentum rather than fuel.


In addition to the newest technology, components, and driver conveniences, the customized 2017 T680 Advantage show at Mid-America has several other features. In addition to a 2017 PACCAR MX-13 455-horsepower engine, a new PACCAR 40K tandem rear axle, and an Eaton Fuller Advantage automated 10-speed gearbox, the truck is equipped with an optimized powertrain. Then there’s the lightweight Meritor MFS+TM 12,500-lb front steer axle with integrated knuckle for air disc brakes, as well as new Kenworth taper leaf lightweight springs for a smooth ride and improved handling.
