Kenworth releases K270, K370 cabover brochure

The 12-page Kenworth K270 and K370 Cabover Brochure provides comprehensive product information, including detailed specifications for the PACCAR PX-7 6.7-liter engine, engine equipment and transmissions, gross axle weight rating, suspensions, wheels/tires/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 body length.

The Kenworth cabovers feature a new exterior, new dash and gauge cluster, front air disc brakes, electronic braking module, optional Allison 6-speed transmission, push-button control shifter, and Dana rear axles.

The cabovers are standard with the PACCAR PX-7 engine rated at 220 HP and 520 lb.-ft. of torque, and Allison 5-speed transmission. The standard 22.5-in. tire and wheel package enables the cabovers to match up to standard dock heights at pickup and delivery locations in several applications. Both truck models offer a standard air ride driver’s seat and 2-person bench seating with storage underneath. A new option is single driver and passenger seats with a large console providing storage and cup holders in between.

Compared to a typical medium-duty conventional, the K270 and K370 offer up to a 30% better curb-to-curb turning radius, a 63.4-in. BBC with an extra 45 in. of payload room, and a 35-ft. overall length, which is rapidly becoming the new norm in major metropolitan areas, notes the manufacturer.

Available with wheelbases ranging from 142 to 242 in. in 12-in. increments, the Kenworth cabovers can accommodate bodies from 16 to 28 ft. A large 2,500-sq.-in. wraparound windshield combines with large side windows to give optimum visibility.

The Kenworth cabovers also offer a new “clear rail” package that relocates the air tanks, DEF tank, battery box and exhaust after-treatment up behind the cab. This new option opens up room for custom bodies, such as street sweepers.

The Kenworth K270 and K370 Cabover brochure is available from Kenworth dealers in the U.S. and Canada or online at the Kenworth Trucks website.
