The latest addition to the growing on highway Cat Trucks family was revealed the other day. Say hello the CT680
Not to shabby if you ask me. Out of the three trucks I like this one the most. Right from the start the CT680 was designed to be a long hood, set forward axle, heavy hauler. During the design phase Caterpillar asked their customers what they would like in terms of styling and the answer was bling. Or should I say more choices when it comes to chrome, external air cleaners and other assorted trim. Under the hood the Cat CT13 diesel engine provides power in the range of 410 to 475 HP and torque from 1,450 to 1,700 lb-ft. If those numbers don’t excite you executives from Cat have confirmed that a 15 liter engine will be available later this year. When production begins this July expect that many of the CT680s will leave the factory with the CX-31 automatic transmission mirroring trends seen in the other two Caterpillar rigs.
