LOUSIVILLE, Ky. — Kenworth Truck Co. used the Mid-America Trucking Show to introduce a new extended daycab for its T600, T800 and W900 models.
The extended daycab adds six inches to the current cab length, mounts the seat two inches further back from the steering wheel for added room, and offers a seat recline up to 21 degrees.
In addition, the extended daycab provides an additional storage of 2-1/2 cubic feet on the rear wall. It also offers an additional three inches of headroom, has an option for Kenworth proprietary corner windows, and will be available with back of cab and side of cab-mounted exhaust.
And Kenworth assures weight-conscious truckers that the extra length will have only a “slight weight increase over the current cab.”
The new cab configuration, available later this year, is aimed fuel and regional hauling, pickup and delivery, dump trucks and mixers, and logging applications.
The extended daycab could also be a worthwhile aftermarket option for truckers looking to convert Kenworth AeroCabs into daycabs, the company says.
