The CT680 Delivers Class-Leading Combinaison
of Durability, Comfort & Style

The Cat® Vocational Truck line continues to grow to meet customer needs with the addition of the CT680, a Class 8 set-forward-axle model built to tackle today’s most demanding jobs while setting new standards for comfort and style.

The 3rd vocational truck offered by Caterpillar, the CT680 features a rugged exterior, attractive automotive appearance, spacious and ergonomic cab, and vocational-specific engine and transmission. Its set-forward axle, parabolic taper leaf suspension, tuned cab air suspension system, and premium sound insulation and trim combine to deliver industry-leading ride quality.
“Customers told us they wanted a truck they could work hard,” said Dave Schmitz, Vocational Truck product manager. “The CT680 is as rugged as they come – built for heavy loads, hard jobs and harsh environments – but it still delivers shift-long comfort and a stylish appearance. Its bold design will set our customers apart from the crowd.”

To keep service time to a minimum, the CT680’s modular components – including the grille, grille surround, bumper and fender extensions – can be replaced individually. Key service points like coolant, washer reservoirs and air filters are easy to access, and customers can quickly replace headlight bulbs and windshield wiper blades without tools.

To keep drivers and those around them safe, the CT680 features a curved, sloped, wraparound windshield – in a one- or two-piece design – that offers an uncompromised view of the road. Large, heated, cowl-mounted mirrors with integrated turn signals also enhance all-around visibility. A generous door opening, 3-point grab irons and skid-resistant steps allow for safe entry and exit.

Powering the CT680 is a Cat CT Series Vocational Truck Engine with horsepower ratings from 410 to 475, peak torque ratings from 1,450 to 1,700 lb ft and the flexibility to match power and performance to specific jobs and operating conditions. A highly efficient Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) solution, with upgraded in-cylinder technology and proven aftertreatment, meets emission requirements.

The Cat CX31 automatic transmission delivers rugged durability, smooth shifting and optimum power. It boasts the industry’s highest power-to-weight ratio, full power shifting and quick acceleration to boost productivity. Ideal speed and torque combinations help improve fuel economy, and two side PTO locations and a Cat exclusive rear PTO enhance versatility and serviceability.

The CT680 comes standard with Caterpillar’s comprehensive asset and fleet management tool, Product Link™. Customers can use this tool and the accompanying VisionLink® web interface to track fuel use and costs, location, working versus idle time, preventive maintenance schedules and more. Fault code or suspicious movement alerts can be sent via email or text message to help keep downtime to a minimum.

Also available are an optional vehicle infotainment system and a Bendix tire pressure monitoring system.

“If you have heavy loads to haul or hard work to perform, and you want to do it in comfort and style, then the CT680 is your truck,” Mr. Schmitz said. “You get the rugged durability and dealer support you expect from Cat, plus a premium work environment for the driver and best-in-class styling, materials and serviceability.”

Like the Cat CT660 and CT681, the CT680 is backed by bumper-to-bumper service at more than 400 Cat dealer locations across North America.
