KIRKLAND, Wash. — Kenworth is introducing the new K360 Class 7 cabover model for urban delivery companies.
The Kenworth K360 is designed for companies that deliver goods in urban areas and require a highly maneuverable truck with 22- to 26-ft body size, the company says.
The K360 is based on the DAF LF55 which was European Truck of the Year in 2002. European customers have touted the high-volume payloads through its low chassis weight and clear back of cab as one major reason for its success, Kenworth says.
The 33,000 lb. GVWR Kenworth K360 will initially be launched with a 5.9-litre PACCAR engine and six-speed manual transmissions. The initial offering will be in a 4×2 Class 7 truck configuration with 220 hp with maximum torque of 605 lb-ft. Full production launch of the K360 is scheduled for late next year, with horsepower ratings ranging from 220hp to 280hp with maximum torque of 620 lb-ft. A combination of automatic and manual transmissions will be offered.
