Two new technology products are set to improve vehicle diagnostics and productivity. TruckTech+ will be available for new Kenworth Class 8 trucks specified with the Paccar MX-13 engine starting this summer.

Manufactured with Synteq XP nanofiber media, the company’s fuel filtration technology is now available for Cummins ISX 12 (Donaldson Blue DBF6776) and ISX 15 (DBF5811) engines.
