March 21, 2013 – “When it comes to delivering loads into tight urban settings, nothing compares to Kenworth’s K270 and K370 medium duty cabovers,” boasted Doug Powell, medium-duty marketing manager for Kenworth. Available with wheelbases ranging from 142 in. to 242 in., the K270 and K370 can accommodate bodies from 16 ft to 28 ft. Both are powered by a 6.7-liter PACCAR PX-7 engine with a standard 220-hp rating and 520 lb-ft of maximum torque. Optional ratings are 240-hp and 560 lb-ft of torque and 250-hp with 660 lb-ft of torque, and both models are available with Allison 5-speed transmissions. Inside, the truck accommodates bench seating for three. Its wraparound windshield combines with large side windows to provide good visibility.
