VANCOUVER,BC– Cummins Westport Inc. (“CWI”), a leading provider of high-performance, alternative fuel engines for the global market, announced today that Kenworth Truck Company has added the T440 Natural Gas Truck to its line of industry-leading green products. The Kenworth T440 natural gas model is powered by the Cummins Westport ISL G engine.
“There is growing demand in CNG and LNG vehicles across the United States and Canada. The natural gas powered Kenworth T440 offers outstanding horsepower, torque and performance and provides an excellent, low-emission and cost-effective transportation solution for local and regional haul fleets. The tight turning radius and lightweight chassis also make the T440 natural gas vehicle an excellent choice in a mixer or dump application,” said Gary Moore, Kenworth assistant general manager for marketing and sales.
The Kenworth T440 natural gas model is available now for order and is focused on local and regional haul and vocational. The Kenworth Extended Day Cab and Kenworth 38-inch AeroCab® FlatTop sleeper are available as options. The Kenworth T440 offers excellent value, productivity and aerodynamics to fleet and truck operators. The T440 has a gross vehicle weight (GVW) ranging from a heavy Class 7 vehicle at 33,000 lbs. up to a light Class 8 truck at 68,000 lbs. and is available with 12,000 to 22,000 lb. rated front axles, 21,000 to 26,000 lb. rated single rear axles, and 40,000 to 46,000 lb. rated tandem rear axles. Other key features include an aerodynamic sloped hood and 3-piece bumper; best-in-class forward lighting with Halogen projector headlamps; high-quality multiplexed dash, and Kenworth Driver Information Center.
The ISL G engine operates on either CNG or LNG, both of which are cost effective, low carbon, and low emissions fuels. Rated at 320 hp and 1,000 lb-ft of torque, the ISL G is 2010 compliant without the use of selective catalytic reduction (SCR) or a diesel particulate filter (DPF). CNG and LNG fuel tanks can be configured to suit customer applications and range requirements.
