Review: 2010 Kenworth K108 Prime Mover Truck
Kenworth K108: The introduction
In the trucking industry, I believe the most important factor is the ability of the vehicle to provide a powerful performance and stay in top shape for a long period of time. Why? Simply because when your truck performs well without much downtime, it will increase your profit all the more. And I’m sure that’s what we are looking forward to and because of the need, a lot of the trucks that are being released on the market today are all enhanced with the latest technological advancements. But let’s not forget those past models that are still on the market because of their reliability and their ability to still provide business owners with the ideal performance they would need for their business. Now, if you’re one of those individuals who are looking for some retro models of trucks with the capability to deliver and you haven’t decided yet on which one to acquire, read this review of Kenworth’s 2010 K108 prime mover truck to see whether it will fit your vision for your company.
Kenworth K108: Key features
This Kenworth truck is standardized with a Cummins ISX EGR which reduces the emission of nitrogen oxide. This engine is also capable of delivering power that could reach 550hp to 600hp so there is no need to fret about your truck’s performance because this is ideal for any kind of application.
Safety and comfort features
Drivers need to be comfortable in their cab because the actual driving of the vehicle is already a very tiring job. So in order to minimize the hassle of maneuvering through numerous switches, the K108 offers a wrap around dash that provides an excellent view of all the instruments which include three warning light clusters. The rocker type switches are also redesigned to make operating it simpler.
There is also an optional adjustable steering column if you choose to further enhance comfort and safety. The large, deep, curved standard two-piece windscreen (optional one-piece), when combined with the daylite doors and optional peeper windows provide even more visibility to reduce any kind of vehicular accidents.
Driving is all the more taxing if it’s hot and noisy but thankfully, this prime mover’s air-cooled double-skin engine cover minimizes the heat inside the cabin as well as the noise to promote additional comfort. There is also ample storage space plus coins and mobile phone storage.
Maximum efficiency and productivity
There is an integrated sun visor and a roof-mounted deflector (to be added when applicable) that improve efficiency. The low tare weight through the application of advanced fibreglass and aluminum construction techniques lead to higher payloads and of course, an increased productivity.
