Kenworth adds new options for medium-duty cabovers
KIRKLAND, Wash. — Kenworth has rolled out three new engine ratings for its medium-duty cabovers to make them more versatile when it comes to applications and body customization.
The Kenworth K270 and K370 cabovers can now be spec’d with the Paccar PX-7 engine with a new top rating of 260 hp and 660 lb.-ft. of torque. Also new is a 200 hp/520 lb.-ft. rating. The standard rating is 220 hp and 520 lb.-ft., mated to an Allison five-speed automatic transmission.
“More choices for engine ratings means fine-tuning the Kenworth cabovers to a customer’s specific application,” explained Swihart. “These are work trucks and the more we offer, the higher the degree of customization we can provide.”
The cabover design allows for a 30% better curb-to-curb turning radius compared to conventionals, Kenworth claims, and the 63.4-inch BBC provides an extra 45 inches of payload room.
“We continue to evolve our Kenworth K270 and K370 cabovers to serve new applications as these models gain customer recognition in the marketplace. There is almost no job these cabovers can’t do,” said Swihart.
