Kenworth Truck Co. is introducing a new extended day cab to provide drivers with more room and storage space, as well as a conversion kit to turn sleeper cabs into day cabs.
Available on the T600, T800 and W900, Kenworth said the extended day cab option will be well-suited for both regional hauling applications and vocational customers who are looking for more cab comfort.
David Warren, Kenworth product marketing manager, said the extended day cab runs six inches longer with the roof raised five inches over its traditional day cab.
"The result is a very spacious cab with two more inches in driver belly and leg room, more head room and 21 degrees of recline in the driver's seat," Warren said.
The conversion kit transforms T600, T800 and W900 AeroCab sleeper cabs to extended day cabs.
The extended day cab conversion can be completed to production specifications at Kenworth dealerships and requires no major modifications to the cab structure. The conversion also allows the AeroCab sleeper to remain fully intact for resale, Kenworth said.
