At the Mid American Trucking Show Paccar showed the facelifted Kenworth K370 rigid truck. In Europe, truck addicts immediately recognize the new front of DAF’s Euro VI LF cab. In the US, the Kenny meets all current requirements with regard to exhaust emissions.The renewed Keworth looks the part and is being sold with the Paccar PX 7 engine. These DAF-based rigids come in two kinds: the K270 as a Class 6 truck (8,8 till 12 tonne) and the slightly heavier K370 as a Class 7 truck (12 – 15 tonne). Similar versions of Peterbilt trucks are to be expected at a later stage.
As these facelifted trucks were on display in the US at the Louisville show, DAF issued a press release showing the 5.000th DAF LF which was built in Leyland, Britain including a fullsize body for big time customer Royal Mail.
