TruckTech+ available on medium-duty conventional Kenworths
Kenworth’s TruckTech+ remote diagnostics system is now an option on medium-duty conventional truck models.
Subscriptions that span 24 months can be purchased along with T180, T280, T380 and T480 models equipped with the Paccar PX-7 or PX-9 engines. The T280, T380 and T480 also offer the system when specified with a Cummins Westport L9N natural gas engine.
TruckTech+ offers real-time information on engine health, and warns drivers whether they should keep rolling, address an alert code during the next service interval, head to a dealer for service, or pull over to prevent damage.
When trucks need to come in for service, the system will map out the three closest repair facilities. The data is fed into a Paccar Solutions portal where fleet managers can review the truck’s location, status, identified issue, and recommended solution.
