Kenworth introduces new options for T270, T370 medium-duty conventional trucks

Kenworth is offering new options for its T270 and T370 medium-duty conventional trucks.

The roll-back flatbed application is now an approved body type for use with the Kenworth AG210L single-axle rear suspension on the T270 and T370. The Kenworth AG210L is a 21,000-lb. rated highway, two-bag, rear air suspension that features a proven trailing arm design and provides a smooth ride.

The T270 and T370 also add CX chrome round convex mirrors as an option. The driver and passenger side hood-mounted convex mirrors provide an enhanced side view and help to eliminate blind corners.

The Kenworth T270 and T370 also offer an updated version of the optional Bendix side object detection system. Changes include an increased field of view and enhanced detection. The detection range is now up to 20 ft. forward and 20 ft. backward from the sensor’s location. The system also adds stationary object filtering when at speeds above 20 MPH.
