Driving a large truck in the city isn’t easy. There are tight corners and small alleys that need to be anticipated prior to pick up or deliver. It’s crucial to have the smallest and most nimble truck possible. Kenworth K270s are small, maneuverable medium duty trucks that don’t sacrifice power or comfort.
The Kenworth K270 starts with its unique design. It’s built on a medium duty chassis with a cabover design, so it’s already shorter than a standard Class 6 truck. From there, it features a shorter wheelbase and 55-degree wheel cut to help you get in and out of practically any situation. It’s smaller and more maneuverable than practically any medium duty truck out there.
However, these cabover designs have long had a reputation for riding rough and being difficult for drivers to get in and out of, which city drivers do dozens of times per day. Not so with the Kenworth K270. The doors open to a full 90-degree angle, and perfectly placed steps allow drivers to painlessly get in and out. It also features an air ride seat and automatic transmission for even more convenience. A workstation is also available, and power windows, locks, and mirrors are standard.
The Kenworth K270 doesn’t sacrifice on power. It has a PACCAR PX-7 under the cab, which can feature up to 250 horsepower and 660 ft./lb. of torque mated to a reliable Allison automatic transmission, so there is plenty of power for any load. The cab features a 55-degree hydraulic tilt for easy maintenance access.
If you doubt that a cabover truck can provide you and your drivers with the ability to get the job done and do it in comfort, then you haven’t yet looked at the Kenworth K270. It proves that medium duty cabovers have come a long way. Contact the Sales Team at Coopersburg & Liberty Kenworth to learn more about the advantages of the Kenworth K270.
