Kenworth Truck Co. has published a new brochure on its Class 6 K270 and Class 7 K370 cabover models. The cabover models are available with bodies ranging from 16 to 28 ft. and everything from vans to stake beds to car carrier beds.
The six-page brochure provides product information, including detailed specifications for the engine, engine equipment, gross axle weight rating (GAWR), suspensions, wheels/tire/brakes, frame, cab, electrical system, paint and options.
Also shown are K270 and K370 dimensions for cab to axle, axle to end of frame, wheelbase, truck length and box length when specified with either a 19.5-in. or 22.5-in. tire and wheel package. The new 22.5-in. package enables the K270 and K370 to match up to standard dock heights at pickup and delivery locations in several applications.
Both cabovers are standard with the 6.7L Paccar PX-6 engine rated at 220 hp. and 520 lbs.-ft. of torque. Optional ratings are 240 hp. and 560 lbs.-ft. of torque, and 250 hp. with 660 lbs.-ft. Both models also feature Allison Automatic transmissions as standard equipment. The 63.4-in. BBC (front bumper to back of the cab) provides a 55-deg. wheel cut.
The wide cabs can accommodate up to three people with a driver air-suspended seat and two-person bench seat. They also come standard with rear outboard mounted cab suspension to further enhance ride quality and driver comfort. The dash includes a master display information module with data on fuel consumption, service inspections, outside air temperature, coolant temperature, oil level, DEF level, and trip information.
