Kenworth will offer a 22.5-in. tire and wheel package and expanded wheelbase choices for the Kenworth K270 and K370 medium duty cabovers.
With the new tire and wheel package, the K270 class 6 and K370 class 7 cabovers match up to standard dock heights at pickup-and-delivery locations in several applications. Depending on van body installation practices, the cab floor will be at approximately 50 in. up from the ground with an 11R22.5-in. setup. The K270 will also retain the 19.5-in. package as an alternative for customers that require a lower-step height and entry.
Kenworth will expand the choice of wheelbase configurations for both trucks. The new 22.5-in. tire/wheel combination introduces a wheelbase range of 146 to 242 in. in 12-in. increments. The longer wheelbase allows for up to a 28-ft van body installation, while the shorter wheelbase can accommodate a van length down to 16 ft. The cab-to-axle dimension now starts at 120 in. with variations up to 217 in. on a 242-in. wheelbase.
The K270 with 19.5-in. tires and gets four new wheelbases covering a range of 142 to 238 in., also in 12-in. increments.
