Kenworth has added several new options to its K270 and K370 medium duty cabover models.
The Kenworth K270 Class 6 model now is available for order with 19.5-inch tires and wheels. Bridgestone 19.5-inch front and rear tires are offered along with Alcoa and Accuride 19.5-inch front and rear wheels.
The standard 22.5-inch tire and wheel package for the K270 and Kenworth K370 Class 7 cabovers enables them to match up to standard dock heights at pickup and delivery locations in several applications.
Kenworth also introduced Allison 3000 HS and RDS 5-speed and 6-speed automatic transmissions for its cabovers. Allison’s heavy duty vocational transmission series opens the door to the Kenworth cabovers for vocational applications, such as refuse operations.
The Kenworth K270 and K370 are standard with the Paccar PX-7 engine rated at 220-hp and 520 lb-ft of torque, and Allison 5-speed transmission. Both truck models offer a standard air ride driver’s seat and 2-person bench seating with storage underneath. An option is available for single driver and passenger seats with a large console providing storage and cup holders in between the seats.
Available with wheelbases ranging from 142 to 242 inches in 12-inch increments, the Kenworth cabovers can accommodate bodies from 16 to 28 feet. A large 2,500-square-inch wraparound windshield combines with large side windows to give optimum visibility.
