New options support heavy-duty Kenworth T370 vocational applications

Aug. 17, 2016

Kenworth is enhancing its reliable, rugged, and versatile Kenworth T370 with new options that further expand its capabilities for vocational customers. The T370 is a proven, cost competitive option for the medium-duty vocational market, and shares a heavy-duty heritage and key components with Kenworth’s heavy duty vocational trucks.

Now, the T370--already offered with heavy-duty 16,000-lb, 18,000-lb, and 20,000-lb front axles--is adding a durable straight steel channel bumper, larger size 385/65R22.5 steer tires, and rugged, molded thermoplastic fender extensions to benefit vocational customers. The heavy front axles can be paired with 46,000-lb rear axles to create specifications ideally suited for vocational applications, such as fuel delivery, dump, utility, crane, service trucks, or mixers.

“The Kenworth T370 already provides excellent performance and value for a wide range of medium duty and vocational applications,” said Kurt Swihart, Kenworth marketing director. “Now, Kenworth is enhancing this proven performer to bring cost-effective operation and heavy duty performance to truck operators in even more demanding vocational applications.”

The T370 is available with Meritor or Dana non-drive front steer axles rated from 16,000 to 20,000 pounds and 44,000- and 46,000-lb heavy-duty tandem-drive rear axles. The T370 can be spec’d with the PACCAR PX-9 engine rated up to 350-horsepower and 1,150 lb-ft of torque.
