The Kenworth T270 medium duty truck – a straight truck with a low-profile chassis and 19.5-inch wheels and tires – is available up to 26,000-pound GVWR and comes equipped with air or hydraulic brakes. An 8,000-pound front axle can be paired with 16,000-, 17,000- and 18,000-pound rear axle ratings. The T270 offers the Paccar PX-6 engine rated to 325 horsepower and 750 ft.-lbs. of torque. Customers can select manual or automatic transmissions. Kenworth says its new halogen projector low-beam headlamps shine 30 percent more light down the road and last three times longer than sealed-beam headlamps. A new hood of sheet molded composite, one-piece chrome or painted bumper, and new Metton quarter fenders add impact resistance.
