Kenworth Truck Company announced the introduction of a new T300 Class 6 25,000-pound GVWR vehicle equipped with air brakes for pick-up and delivery and various other applications. Kenworth continues to also provide hydraulic brakes on its T300 Class 6 and 7 vehicles.
The Class 6 truck will come with 8,000-lb front and 17,000-lb rear axles. It will be available with Cummins ISB and ISC engines and Caterpillar C7 engine. In conjunction with air brakes, Kenworth is offering a low profile chassis with 19.5-inch wheels and tires. Also available are 22.5-inch wheels and tires.
New options include remote keyless entry and a low voltage disconnect system that continually monitors battery voltage.
The Kenworth T300 is available in Class 6 and Class 7 configurations as a straight truck or tractor. Details of the new truck can be found in the Kenworth Medium-Duty Body Builders Manual.
“It's imperative for Kenworth and body builders to work together so that each body can be installed easily and efficiently when the builder takes delivery. The Kenworth Medium-Duty Body Builders Manual will aid in this important process,” said Jeff Sass, Kenworth marketing planning and research director.
