Kenworth’s new T440, in truck and tractor form, is now available for order with initial production scheduled for Q1 2010. Built on the same platform as the T470 introduced in June, its GVW ranges from a heavy class-7 vehicle at 33,000 lb up to what was once called a ‘Baby 8’ at 68,000 lb.

Standard power will be the 2010 Paccar PX-8 engine, rated from 260 hp to 350 hp with 660 to 1000 lb ft of torque, while an option is the 9-liter, 2010 Cummins ISL engine rated from 345 to 380 hp and 1150 to 1300 lb ft of torque. Other key T440 features include 10-, 11-, and 13-speed Eaton manual and 5- and 6-speed Allison automatic transmissions; 12,000- to 22,000-lb front axles; and 21,000- to 26,000-lb single or 40,000- to 46,000-lb tandem rears. Also available are factory installation of a power take-off (PTO) and one lift axle.
Out front the 3-piece aerodynamic bumper can be replaced with an optional aluminum or steel channel type. The halogen projector headlamps are standard equipment with high-intensity-discharge (HID) lighting available as an option.
Inside, the T440 sports the same multiplexed dash installed in Kenworth’s class 8 products, with the Driver Information Center standard. The optional Extended Day Cab enhances driver comfort with an additional 6 in. of length and 5 in. of cab height compared to Kenworth’s traditional day cab.  You can also order an air ride cab and a 38-in. AeroCab sleeper.
