New Kenworth T610 could reshuffle truck market
Kenworth’s new T610 model could be able to compete across a broader area of applications than any other truck currently on the Australian market.
According to Peter Shields, Senior Technical Writer at Prime Mover, the new T610 brings with it an “extensive range of versatility” that could see it succeed not only in the 26- and 19m B-double market, but also in the infrastructure boom-led tipper-and-dog segment, and possibly even in Performance-Based Standards (PBS) applications.
“Kenworth’s new heavy-duty model is arguably the brand’s most ambitious project to date,” he said.
“Walking the line between traditional design and high technology, it’s short enough to fit into Australia’s 26m B-double envelope and thus able to go head-to-head with the increasingly bullish European cab-over faction – all while retaining that distinct North American spirit Australian trucking is so fond of.”
