Kenworth Truck Company - C500 Vocational Trucks

The Kenworth C500 thrives where other trucks fear to tread, with surprising agility and reliability. It now boasts greater performance and functionality than ever, featuring increased cab options, a larger cooling module, and two new hoods.

Features & Benefits

Cab Options

It comes available with the standard day cab, the 42” FlatTop sleeper, and now features the extended day cab, and the 38” AeroCab FlatTop Sleeper.

Extended Day Cab

Additional cab length and enhanced driver comfort. 6in increased belly room and 5in increased head room. Seat reclines up to 21 degrees; 17 degrees at max rear slide position.

38” AeroCab FlatTop Sleeper

Ideal for vocational operations requiring a highly maneuverable truck with more versatility than a day cab can provide. Structure: aluminum and fibreglass construction.

Larger Cooling Module

Reduces weight and allows for increased air-flow. Module fins are now made of aluminum rather than copper-brass. Used across the board in all C500 applications with either new wide fibreglass or sheet metal hoods, or optional FEPTO.

2 New Hoods: fibreglass and sheet metal

Accommodate the 1780 square inch cooling module that allows for increased cooling capacity. Increased cooling capacity improves stationary horsepower capability to 600 hp and Gross Combination Weights without application approval to 200,000 lbs.
