Kenworth introduces 16,000-lb. rated front axle for T370 model

The announcement was made during a Kenworth press conference at The Work Truck Show, which is sponsored by the National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA).

Kirkland, Wash., March 18, 2010—Kenworth Truck Co. has expanded the versatility of its T370 medium duty product with the introduction of a 16,000-lb. rated front axle. The announcement was made during a Kenworth press conference at The Work Truck Show, which is sponsored by the National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA).

“Our new axle rating for the Kenworth T370 broadens our commitment to support medium duty vocational applications, such as fuel hauler, dump, mixer, utility, service truck and others, which require a heavier front axle to get the job done,” said Gary Moore, Kenworth assistant general manager for marketing and sales.

The new 16,000-lb. rating includes taperleaf springs, a choice of single or dual steering gears, and up to 315 series tires.
