Kenworth medium-duty cabovers available for order

Kenworth K270 and K370 cabovers with extensive new exterior and interior enhancements are available for order.

Kenworth’s K270 Class 6 and K370 Class 7 cabovers are for pick-up-and-delivery operations, food and beverage companies, furniture hauling, landscape businesses and street sweeping and striping, among other applications, said the manufacturer. Kenworth noted that the cabovers are especially ideal for city and neighborhood applications, where tight turning and a shorter overall length are required.

New additions to the Kenworth K270 and K370 cabovers include a fresh exterior, new dash and gauge cluster, front air disc brakes, electronic braking module, Allison six-speed transmission, push-button control shifter, and Dana rear axles.

The K270 and K370 are standard with the 6.7-liter PACCAR PX-7 engine rated at 220-HP and 520 lb.-ft. of torque, and the Allison 2100HS five-speed transmission. Both truck models feature 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 with storage and cup holders in between.

Available with wheelbases ranging from 142 to 242 in. (in 12-in. increments), the Kenworth K270 and K370 can accommodate bodies from 16 to 28 ft. A large 2,500-square-in. wraparound windshield combines with large side windows to provide visibility, the company explained.

For specialized applications, the Kenworth cabovers offer a “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.
