Kenworth releases new T610 Aero Roof Sleeper Cab

Commercial vehicle manufacturer, Kenworth, has released a 600mm aero roof sleeper cab for the T610 model.

This complements the existing day-cab of 760mm mid-roof and 860 sleeper cab options.

Touted by Kenworth as being the most compact sleeper in the T610 range, the 600mm sleeper cab option is suitable for a variety of applications with a payload capacity up to 26 metre B-double configurations 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,” said Brad May, PACCAR Australia’s Director Sales and Marketing.

“The new sleeper option provides maximum productivity, optimal fuel efficiency supported by the T610’s aerodynamic lines, while reducing costs incurred by road damage,” he said.

“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”. 

According to Kenworth the more open and relaxed cabin makes it easier for the driver to move around in and during rest breaks.

The 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.

In a statement Kenworth said the T610 is the result 100,000 Australian design hours and more than ten million kilometres of testing and validation.

To date it remains the single largest investment in product development the brand has made in Australia.

“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,” Kenworth said in a statement.

“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.”
