The 2010 PACCAR PX-8 engine, rated from 260 hp to 350 hp and 660 lb-ft to 1000 lb-ft of torque, is standard equipment. The optional 2010 Cummins ISL engine is rated from 345 hp to 380 hp and 1150 lb-ft to 1300 lb-ft of torque.

Other key T440 features include 10-, 11-, and 13-speed manual and 5- and 6-speed automatic transmissions; and 5450 to 10 000 kg rated front axles, 9500 to 11 800 kg rated single rear axles, and 18 150 to 20 865 kg rated tandem rear axles.

The Kenworth T440 offers the same, high-quality multiplexed dash installed in Kenworth’s Class 8 product line with a large panel for convenient installation of body controls and gauges.
