Today’s fleet operators are searching for specific day cab trucks when analyzing the for sale vehicles that are on the market. They require a vehicle that will provide their drivers with the optimal level of comfort while maintaining high performance and efficiency on the road. But only by working with trusted vehicle experts can operators learn more about the best performing, most comfortable day cab trucks. Here, the team at Coopersburg &Liberty Kenworth provides an overview of the evolution of day cab comforts within the trucking industry.
The Beginning of the Driver-First Mentality
In recent years, leading truck manufacturers, such as Kenworth, have begun building their vehicles with a driver-first mentality. This has enabled their engineering staff to first consider the needs of the driver ahead of all other elements in crafting their trucks. This change of mentality has helped usher in several new innovations. The positioning of the pedals and the seating was one element that changed in this driver-first era. Now, drivers have a larger amount of room to position their bodies within the truck, and to rest their arms and legs during long journeys.
Larger Windshields Offer Superior Visibility
One often under-considered element of driving comfort is the ability of the driver to see all elements on the road with complete clarity. The latest vehicles, such as the T680 day cab trucks, which are for sale through Coopersburg & Liberty Kenworth, have been fitted with larger windshields than previous models to provide drivers with a full view of the road in front of them. The new T880 day cab from Kenworth features a low sloped hood giving drivers maximum visibility while on the road.
Air Cushion Plus Seating for Superior Driving Comfort
Without the optimal seating arrangement and design, all of the other comfort-based innovations within the Kenworth vehicles would have little value. Kenworth is a market leader for comfortable seating within the day cab vehicle, and is known for innovations such as Kenworth’s Air Cushion Premium Plus model seating, which is orthopedically sculpted to provide the driver with optimal lumbar and lateral support while driving. The seat supports all driver movements and has been engineered to help protect Kenworth drivers against back injuries that many others encounter due to their many hours behind the wheel.
Air-Assisted Hydraulic Clutch Offers Leg Comfort
The air-assisted hydraulic clutch, which is found in the T680 and other day cab models from Kenworth, has been designed to make it easier for drivers to engage the clutch. It’s a system that requires less pressure to be applied to the clutch when driving, so that smaller drivers (and those with leg issues) can minimize the impact on their leg area.
These latest innovations are helping truck drivers enjoy their driving experience. To discover more on the latest day cab trucks for sale available through Kenworth, contact the team at Coopersburg & Liberty Kenworth directly at 1-888-453-7952 or visit their business website at www.coopskw.com.
