Kenworth’s K270 and K370 medium-duty cabovers now offer the option of a second 45-gallon fuel tank, providing customers greater range and longer operating times between refuelings.
The second, 45-gallon rectangular fuel tank utilizes approximately 28 inches of frame space, clearance between the battery box and the fuel tank is nearly 5-1/2 inches, and from back of the cab to the back of fuel tank is just over 100 inches on the passenger side frame rail.
The second 45-gallon tank for the K270 and K370 is available with 19.5-inch tires and wheelbases of 166, 178, 190, 202, 214, 226 and 238 inches, or with 22.5-inch tires and wheelbases of 170, 182, 194, 206, 218, 230 and 242 inches.
The Kenworth cabovers are for beverage distributors, pick-up and delivery, furniture, food processors and other urban delivery applications.
The bumper to back of cab of only 63.4 inches for the Kenworth cabovers – compared to a 106-inch BBC on medium duty conventionals – also provides plenty of room for a large van body. This enables the K270 and K370 to haul more payload with a shorter overall length. This is especially important as overall truck length is becoming more regulated in some major metropolitan cities. In addition, the Kenworth cabovers offer a large windshield for enhanced visibility, and room to carry a three-person crew with a driver air-suspended seat and two-person bench seat.
Both the K270 and K370 are powered by a 6.7-liter PACCAR PX-7 engine with a standard 220-horsepower rating and 520 pounds-feet of maximum torque. Optional ratings are 240-hp and 560 lb-ft of torque and 250-horsepower with 660 pounds-feet of torque. Both models are available with Allison 5-speed transmissions.
