Fleets and truck operators buying new Kenworth T270, T370, T440 and T470 models equipped with the 6.7-liter PACCAR PX-7 engine, 8.9-liter PACCAR PX-9 engine, or Cummins Westport L9N natural gas engine will be able to order Kenworth TruckTech+ remote diagnostics. The company says the system enhances vehicle diagnostics by providing real-time engine health information to fleet managers and Kenworth dealers, and allows fleets to track the location of the trucks.
The data is sent to a secure web portal where the fleet manager can review the truck’s location, status, identified issue and recommended solution.
The Kenworth TruckTech+ option includes a free two-year subscription to the service. Longer term subscription options also are available at a cost.
