The latest Kenworth Cabover Body Builder Manual for Class 6 K270 and Class 7 K370 truck models includes specification guidelines for body planning and installation processes. The 96-page manual contains detailed sections on cab and chassis dimensions, 2013 engines, exhaust and aftertreatment designs and functionality, frame layouts, chassis and cab electrical systems, body mounting, frame modifications, and routing.
Kenworth K270 and K370 cabovers are designed for beverage distributors, pick-up and delivery, furniture, food processors, landscape, towing, and other urban delivery applications. The trucks feature a 55-degree wheel cut for a tighter turning radius and greater maneuverability in urban environments. A bumper to back of cab (BBC) of 63.4 in.–compared to a 106-in. BBC on medium-duty conventionals–provides room for a large van body. Both the K270 and K370 are powered by a 6.7-liter PACCAR PX-7 engine with a standard rating of 220 HP and 520 lb./ft. of maximum torque. Optional ratings are 240 HP and 560 lb./ft. of torque and 250 HP with 660 lb./ft. of torque. Both models are available with Allison 5-speed transmissions.
