The Kenworth W990 is now available with the optional Kenworth AG130 front air suspension rated at 13,200 pounds, the company announced.
Kenworth noted that its W990 is designed to maximize performance in line haul, pickup and delivery, regional haul, and heavy haul operations. The W990 is regarded as Kenworth’s “classic” truck design, featuring 131.5 inches from bumper to back-of-cab length and a long-nose, conventional hood.
Kenworth said in a news release that its proprietary AG130 front air suspension uses an innovative design and high-performance components to provide serviceability while reducing the total cost of maintenance and ownership. The suspension also delivers a smooth ride for drivers to reduce fatigue and keep them alert behind the wheel.
The Kenworth AG130 front air suspension is also available for the Kenworth T680 and T880.
Kenworth’s family of proprietary suspensions includes the AG380, AG400, AG400L, AG460 and AG690 rear suspensions for Class 8 models.
