Hendrickson STEERTEK NXT Available on Select Kenworth and Peterbilt Truck Models


Hendrickson Truck Commercial Vehicle Systems (Itasca, Illinois) announced its STEERTEK™ NXT fabricated front steer axle has been selected as the standard front axle on the new Kenworth and Peterbilt medium-duty truck models.
STEERTEK NXT is now available to order on Kenworth® T180, T280, T380, & T480 trucks and Peterbilt® Models 535, 536, 537, & 548 trucks as standard equipment with the additional capacity options.  Hendrickson’s proprietary design and manufacturing process saves weight compared to traditional I-beam axles while combining rigid strength, outstanding maneuverability due to 55 degrees of wheel cut, and reduced maintenance. As with the rest of the STEERTEK™ NXT portfolio, these new axles come with a best-in-class service interval and feature an exclusive 10-year, 1-million-mile warranty.

“The availability of STEERTEK NXT being offered as standard on both of the new Kenworth and Peterbilt medium-duty trucks is a huge positive for the OEMs, Hendrickson, & their collective customers,” says Sean Whitfield, director of marketing for Hendrickson Truck Commercial Vehicle Systems. “STEERTEK NXT offers a tremendous value with our best-in-class warranty and extended service intervals, and in the cost-sensitive medium-duty market, this value is a benefit for any fleet owner.”

Available in capacities from 8,000 to 14,600 lbs., STEERTEK™ NXT is approved for on-highway & medium duty truck bus and motor home applications.
