Medium-duty K270 and K370 now on the market.

| June 23, 2014

 

KIRKLAND, Wash.– The new Kenworth K270 and K370 cabovers with new exterior and interior enhancements are now 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. The Kenworth 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 6-speed transmission, push-button control shifter, and Dana rear axles.
 
“With these key enhancements, Kenworth is bringing a new level of excellence of quality, innovation and comfort to the medium duty market,” said Doug Powell, Kenworth’s medium duty marketing manager.
 
Powell noted that truck operators running medium-duty conventional trucks in metropolitan areas are also considering cabovers because of a better turning radius, extra payload room, and changing urban length laws.
 
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 5-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 inches in 12-inch increments, the Kenworth K270 and K370 can accommodate bodies from 16 to 28 feet. A large 2,500-square-inch wraparound windshield combines with large side windows to give optimum visibility.
