Kenworth’s Class 6 K270 and Class 7 K370 cabover trucks – now available for order – are suited for applications where tight turning and a shorter overall length are an advantage. Enhancements 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.
“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 cities,” said Doug Powell, Kenworth’s medium duty marketing manager.
