The new Kenworth T270 represents value, reliability, and quality at its finest. Designed to last, this truck rests upon the famous rugged chassis, and definitely lives up to its heritage. Driving pleasing comfort and aerodynamic styling are two of its mainstays, and its contemporary cab design is crafted with the sole purpose of boosting driver’s productivity. Unlike its competition, this vehicle offers single point daily maintenance. With ready access to all service points, the new truck was specifically engineered to stay on the road all day, every day.
Under the hood, the new Kenworth T270 is available with two different engine options: the PACCAR PX-7 or the PACCAR PX-9. The standard 2017 model is equipped with the PX-7 engine (750 lb-ft of torque and 325 horsepower). Drivers have the option to upgrade it to the PX-9, which offers 1,150 lb-ft of torque and up to 350 horsepower. Currently, the PX-7 offers the highest weight to horsepower ratio of any engine in the trucking industry.
The optional PX-9, with its 1,150 lb-ft of torque, is the best option for trucks that will routinely be engaging in heavy applications. Each engine option offers extended service intervals, the most advanced technologies in fuel efficiency, and reliability that will offer a driver complete peace of mind each time he takes to the road. The hood of the new truck tilts a complete 90 degrees to offer unhindered access to all service points and the engine itself, which makes it a favorite among fleets.
This medium duty truck has automatic brake system that was designed by Bendix and crafted in the air style. Created by Reyco, the rear suspension is capable of handling up to 20,000 lbs of torque. The front and rear axles, manufactured by Dana Spicer, are capable of handling up to 10,000 and 21,000 pounds of torque respectively. The classic chassis is crafted from 10 and 5/8th steel, which has been heat treated to ensure absolute sturdiness.
The manufacturer offers a number of optional upgrades for the brakes, axles, and chassis, so every driver is able to choose the model that meets each one of his unique needs.
The cab of this new model was built from a patented blend of composite and aluminum. The sloped aerodynamic hood of this workhorse was designed with aesthetics and fuel efficiency in mind. Recently reconfigured cab includes aerodynamic roof fairings, a workstation between the seats, walnut wood dash panels, electric windows, power door locks, a 2-person bench seat, and the Air Cushion Plus Intermediate Back Driver Seat. A number of optional cab upgrades, such as a backup alarm and aerodynamic heated mirrors, are also available.
