Kenworth K270 and K370 cabovers come standard with soft riding Reyco mechanical spring suspensions, but options for a Hendrickson air suspension are available for those who find themselves regularly hauling delicate cargo.

“For those hauling high value cargo, glass or bottled beverages, we expect the Hendrickson HAS210L and HAS230L rear air ride suspensions to be a popular option,” Doug Powell, Kenworth medium duty marketing manager, says. “They’re the same suspension systems that are already available for our medium duty conventionals.”

Both the K270 and K370 are powered by a 6.7-liter PACCAR PX-7 engine with a standard 220-hp rating and 520 lb-ft of maximum torque.  Optional ratings are 240-hp and 560 lb-ft of torque and 250-hp with 660 lb-ft of torque, and both models are available with Allison 5-speed transmissions.
