KIRKLAND, Wash. – New Kenworth K270 and K370 cabovers with modern interiors and exterior enhancements are available for order.
Kenworth claims these new cabovers will be especially useful for city applications, like street sweeping and furniture hauling, where tight turning and shorter lengths are required.
The new elements of the cabovers include an up to date exterior, new dash and gauge cluster, electronic braking module, push-button control shifter and an Allison 6-speed transmission.
“With these key enhancements, Kenworth is bringing a new level of excellence of quality, innovation and comfort to the medium duty market,” said Doug Powell, Kenworth’s medium duty marketing manager.
Available with wheelbases from 142 to 242 inches in 12-inch increments, the new cabovers can accommodate bodies from 16 to 28 feet.
Powell added that truck operators that run medium-duty conventional trucks in bigger cities should consider cabovers because of the extra payload room and urban length laws.
“Compared to a typical medium duty conventional, the K270 and K370 offer up to a 30 percent better curb-to-curb turning radius, a 63.4-inch BBC with an extra 45 inches of payload room, and a 35-foot overall length which is rapidly becoming the new norm in major cities,” he said.
