Kenworth has added even more flexibility to the T610 with the release of a 600mm aero roof sleeper cab to complement its existing day-cab, 760mm mid-roof and 860mm sleeper cab options.
The most compact sleeper in the T610 range, the 600mm offers an outstanding driver experience and superior in-cab comfort. With greater fuel efficiency and payload capacity up to 26m B-double configurations, the 600mm sleeper cab option is suitable for a variety of applications, including tippers, tankers and refrigerated trailers.
“As a conventional model, the T610 with 600mm sleeper option is unique in its ability to offer both a sleeper and a bullbar in combination with full-length 34 pallet trailer sets and still fit within the 26m B-double envelope. The new sleeper option provides maximum productivity, optimal fuel efficiency supported by the T610’s aerodynamic lines, while reducing costs incurred by road damage” said Brad May, PACCAR Australia’s Director Sales and Marketing.
“With more head room, the new sleeper provides comfortable resting facilities to aid in managing driver fatigue, and offers a great option for those doing shuttle work. It really is an efficient, safe and productive alternative”.
Designed specifically for the Australian road transport market and centred around the needs of the driver, the T610 delivers superior space, visibility and ergonomics. A more open and relaxed cabin makes it easier for the driver to move around in and rest during breaks. The new 600mm aero roof sleeper offers left and right hand sleeper vents, open shelving, foam mattress with hinged pan for under bunk storage, a windscreen privacy curtain and sleeper blackout curtain. An optional under-bunk storage drawer and 42L fridge are also available.
Kenworth’s most innovative and durable truck yet, continuing to redefine productivity.
The result of more than 100,000 Australian design hours and more than ten million kilometres of testing and validation, the T610 has been the single largest investment in product development Kenworth has ever made in Australia. From idea to reality, this significant investment in new technologies and design is specifically for the Australian road transport market.
The T610 and T610SAR represent everything a Kenworth should be in terms of durability, reliability and safety. Yet the really noticeable product improvements are the superior space, ergonomics and driver comfort and control – the drumbeat behind Kenworth’s ‘Best Truck Yet.’
The T610 builds on a proven approach honed over many years, starting in 1975 with the first Australian designed and manufactured Kenworth, the W900SAR and later the development and evolution of other iconic models such as the aerodynamic T600, and the K series range.
It is the culmination of nearly 50 years of Australian design and application engineering experience, integrating with a parallel development program drawing on the global resources of PACCAR.
The T610 delivers Kenworth’s most innovative, durable and productive truck yet, designed and manufactured right here in Australia for local conditions and applications.
