Kenworth Truck’s T270 and T370 medium-duty vehicles are now available with roof fairings, the company announced today.

“In the heavy-duty segment, roof fairings are a common sight, but not so much for medium-duty fleets,” said Doug Powell, Kenworth’s medium-duty marketing manager. “However, we expect to see a transformation in that area.

“There has been a surge in requests for roof fairings for our medium duty conventionals, and we’re pleased to now offer the aerodynamic fairings for tractors, as well as trucks that run box vans.”

The announcement was made in conjunction with The Work Truck Show in Indianapolis. 

Available in a two-piece for factory installation or as a one-piece fairing with installation at Kenworth dealerships, the roof fairings are matched to give a precision fit and finish to Kenworth’s T270 and T370.

“The fairings are similar to what we’ve run on our Class 8 trucks, so they’re proven in durability and functionality,” said Powell. “And, with their low cost, the benefits and paybacks in ROI, thanks to improved fuel economy, can be relatively short.”
