Truck rear air suspension

Kenworth to offer Hendrickson PRIMAAX EX rear air suspension for all wheel drive medium duty trucks.

Indianapolis, Ind., March 8, 2011—Kenworth Truck Co. will offer the Hendrickson PRIMAAX EX rear air suspension for the Kenworth T270 and T370 front drive axle equipped medium duty models. The announcement was made in conjunction with The Work Truck Show, which runs this week in Indianapolis.

“Kenworth continues to expand its suspension offering with quality products that help meet customer requirements in demanding vocational applications,” said Judy McTigue, Kenworth director of marketing planning and research. “The Hendrickson PRIMAAX EX really fits well with Kenworth’s T270 and T370 4x4 trucks introduced last summer. These dependable vehicles—with factory-installed front drive axles—can provide excellent performance and low life-cycle cost to vocational operators who prefer running medium duty trucks to get the job done.”

“The PRIMAAX EX suspension is ideal for vocational and severe duty applications. The suspension offers extreme durability, exceptional component life for maximum uptime, and excellent ride by reducing road shock from rugged terrain for less wear and tear on the driver, truck and equipment,” according to Hendrickson.

The suspension, which has a 15.5-inch ride height, will be available to Kenworth medium duty customers in ratings of 23,000 lbs. and 26,000 lbs. with a single rear axle.

Kenworth’s quality medium duty products, combined with dealer support, contributed to Kenworth receiving the 2010 J.D. Power and Associates award for “Highest in Customer Satisfaction for Medium Duty Truck Dealer Service.”
