Truck is more compact than Class 8 trucks

Sponsored by

Krikland, Wash., November 11, 2010—Kenworth now offers a new brochure on its versatile Kenworth T440. The T440 fills a customer need for heavy-duty performance in more demanding medium duty applications such as regional haul, pickup and delivery, municipal and vocational.

The Kenworth T440 comes in a more compact and lighter weight package than a Class 8 truck. This makes the T440 the perfect choice where weight is a concern but a little more horsepower is needed than a medium duty vehicle can provide. Yet, the T440 also offers key features found in Kenworth’s heavy duty product line, including the same reliable and ergonomic multiplexed dash, aerodynamic sloped hood and three-piece bumper, best-in-class forward lighting with Halogen projector headlamps, and the Kenworth Driver Information Center.

The six-page Kenworth T440 brochure offers comprehensive product information, including a full page with detailed specifications for axles, battery boxes, brakes, bumpers, cab, engines, exhaust options, frame, fuel tanks, hood, interior, starting and charging, suspension, transmissions, wheels and tires, and special equipment and options.

Available as a straight truck or tractor in gross vehicle weight (GVW) ranging from 33,000 lbs. to 68,000 lbs., the T440 features modern aerodynamic styling, excellent maneuverability, superior ergonomics and a fuel-efficient powertrain.

The T440 is standard with the PACCAR PX-8 engine rated at 350 hp and 1,000 lb-ft of torque. Optional engine choices are the Cummins ISL engine, rated at 380 hp and 1,300 lb-ft of torque, and the Cummins ISL G natural gas engine rated at 320 hp and 1,000 lb-ft of torque. Axle ratings are from 12,000 to 22,000 lbs. (front), 21,000 to 30,000 lbs. (single rear) and 40,000 to 46,000 lbs. (dual rear). The T440 is available with a variety of manual and automatic transmissions.

The T440 is standard in a day cab configuration and optional with the Kenworth Extended Day Cab and 38-inch Kenworth AeroCab sleeper. The T440 can also be ordered with an air ride cab, factory-installed power take-off (PTO) and one lift axle. Clean frame rails and an exhaust-free back of cab clear the way for quick and efficient installation of a wide range of bodies and chassis-mounted equipment.
