KW Cabovers Ready to Order


Kenworth’s K270 class 6 and K370 class 7 cabovers are ideal for city and neighborhood applications, where tight turning and a shorter overall length are required. That means pick-up-and-delivery operations, furniture hauling, landscape businesses, and street sweeping among other applications.

New additions to the Kenworth K270 and K370 cabovers include a fresh exterior, new dash and gauge cluster, front air disc brakes, electronic braking module, Allison 6-speed transmission, push-button control shifter, and Dana rear axles.

Compared to a typical medium-duty conventional, the K270 and K370 offer up to a 30% better curb-to-curb turning radius, says Kenworth, as well as a 63.4-in. BBC with an extra 45 in. of payload room. The company adds that a 35-ft overall length is becoming the new norm in major cities.

The K270 and K370 are standard with the 6.7-liter PACCAR PX-7 engine, rated at 220 hp and 520 lb ft of torque, and the Allison 2100HS 5-speed transmission. Both models have a standard air-ride driver’s seat and 2-person bench seating with storage underneath. A new option is single driver and passenger seats separated by a large console with storage and cup holders in between.

Available with wheelbases ranging from 142 to 242 in. (in 12-in. increments), the two trucks can accommodate bodies from 16 to 28 ft. A large 2500-sq-in. wraparound windshield combines with large side windows to give optimum outward vision.

For specialized applications, the Kenworth cabovers offer a new ‘clear rail’ package that relocates the air tanks, DEF tank, battery box, and exhaust aftertreatment up behind the cab. This new option opens up room for custom bodies such as street sweepers.
