Kenworth has added flexibility to its range with the T610 Aero Sleeper launched onto the market for 2019. The 600mm aero roof sleeper cab complements the existing day-cab, 760mm mid-roof and 860mm sleeper cab options.
The most compact sleeper in the T610 range, the 600mm offers improved fuel efficiency and payload capacity up to 26m B-double configurations The new 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,” 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.
“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 has delivered improved space, visibility and ergonomics. The design of the 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.
The result of more than 100,000 Australian design hours and more than ten million kilometres of testing and validation, the T610 program was 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.
