Kenworth T370 medium duty truck

Kenworth announces 6x6 configuration for Kenworth T370 medium duty model, includes factory-installed front drive axle.

Louisville, Ky., April 8, 2011– Kenworth Truck Co. announced that it will offer its first 6x6 configuration for the Kenworth T370 medium duty model.

“Kenworth is further expanding its reach into key medium duty markets by providing quality, durable and high-performance Kenworth T370s in a 6x6 configuration for the first time,” said Preston Feight, Kenworth chief engineer. “This new offering will benefit operators running utility service, construction, oilfield service and boom trucks, in addition to municipal applications such as fire and emergency vehicles. Customers get a great medium duty truck for applications that require a heavier front axle and tandem rear axle to get the job done.”

The Kenworth T370 6x6 features a factory-installed front drive axle available in ratings ranging from 10,000 lbs. to 16,000 lbs. The 6x6 will be equipped with a 40,000 lb. rated rear suspension. Initially, the Chalmers series 854-40 suspension will be offered, followed by the addition of the Hendrickson PRIMAAX(R) EX rear air suspension later this year. T370 6x6 customers can choose either the PACCAR PX-6 or PACCAR PX-8 engine. The addition of Kenworth’s new 6x6 configuration builds upon the 4x4 configuration introduced for the T270 and T370 in 2010.

Kenworth’s quality medium duty products, combined with excellent 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.”
