Updated Aug 26, 2020

Kenworth T270Kenworth is offering new options for its T270 and T370 medium-duty conventional trucks.

The roll-back flatbed application is now an approved body type for use with the Kenworth AG210L single-axle rear suspension on the T270 and T370. The Kenworth AG210L is a 21,000-lb.-rated highway, two-bag, rear air suspension that features a proven trailing arm design and provides a smooth ride, the company says.

The T270 and T370 also add CX chrome round convex mirrors as an option. The driver and passenger side hood-mounted convex mirrors provide an enhanced side view and help to eliminate blind corners.

The Kenworth T270 and T370 also offer an updated version of the optional Bendix side object detection system. Changes include increased field of view and enhanced detection. The detection range is now up to 20 feet forward and 20 feet backward from the sensor’s location. The system also adds stationary object filtering when at speeds above 20 mph, Kenworth says.

According to Bendix, its driver assistance technologies are designed to complement safe drivers, safe driving practices and proactive driver training programs, not replace them. Responsibility for the safe operation of the vehicle remains with the driver at all times.

The T270, a Class 6 vehicle rated at 26,000 lb. GVW, is available as a straight truck and is configured for non-CDL operation. The Class 7 T370 offers a GVW range from 26,001 to 66,000 lb. as a straight truck or tractor and is a multi-dimensional performer to suit almost any vocation, Kenworth says.
