Dongfeng KR Review
Dongfeng KR OverviewThe Dongfeng KR is a six-wheeler, medium-duty truck from the Chinese-owned automaker. A hit in the local China market, the KR is used for medium-duty works like garbage trucks, construction works, and transport logistics. For our domestic market, the Dongfeng Trucks Philippines markets the KR as a “reliable truck, performing efficient power with low emissions and has [a] human-oriented design.” The trucking dealership has fully operational facilities in select cities to cater to professional operators needing trucks for their logistical needs. Autokid Truck Solutions also offers the Dongfeng KR 6W in Cab and Chassis for Php 1.85 million.
Dongfeng KR InteriorInside the KR is an economical cabin but with a hint of some modern features. The curved dashboard ensures that all controls are within reach of the driver. The instrument cluster features a dual spoke steering wheel and analog instrument cluster. On the right side are knobs and switches for various control. There is also an optional touchscreen display with a Beidou navigation satellite system compatible with GPS to aid the driver in finding the best route. The center console holds the gear shifter and acts as a barrier between the two front passenger seats.
Dongfeng KR ExteriorThe Dongfeng exterior stays faithful to the traditional truck look. The wide windshield, side windows, and rear glass window provide good visibility for the driver. This is further amplified by 6 external side mirrors—two on the driver side and four on the passenger side. On the front façade is a flat face cab with matte black radiator grille accented by a large Dongfeng badge with the signature narrow chrome strip. On either side are discrete looking air vents. On the lower bumper are large combination headlights and fog lights. On the sides are side lamps and steps for climbing to the cabin. This China manufactured six-wheeler measures 9,995 mm long, 2,500 mm wide, 3,560, a wheelbase of 5,600 mm, and with a minimum ground clearance of 240 mm. The KR rides on a set of 11.00R20 tires. Dongfeng Trucks Philippines offer the Dongfeng KR with a cargo body made of thermoplastic composite material that is environment-friendly, renewable, and lightweight. Autokid Truck Solutions, on the other hand, gives its customers the option to select from their wide array of affordable bodies to match any business needs. From an aluminum van, dropside, to winged van, Truck Buddy by Autokid gives flexibility and provide long-term aftersales support for their trucks and truck bodies.
Dongfeng KR Ride & HandlingThe Dongfeng KR is driver-centric and is relatively easy to handle for professional and seasoned drivers. In terms of handling, gear shifting is relatively smooth and accurate which the engine responds to immediately. The adjustable driver seat and curved dashboard make it very convenient for the driver to have all controls within the reach without so much strain. The multiple exterior side mirrors make it a lot easier to drive the six-wheeler be it on the highway during transport or when delivering errands on rough construction sites. There is not enough room in the cabin for some wiggle room for a quick nap during a long commute. However, simple comfort like an air-conditioning system is an added plus and much appreciated especially in our tropical weather. Engine noise is muffed and controlled which is another bonus since it can minimize road fatigue.
Dongfeng KR Engine & Fuel ConsumptionThe Dongfeng KR sold by Dongfeng Philippines is powered by a DDi45 water-cooled, inline six cylinder turbocharged and inter-cooled, high pressure common rail engine. The 4,750 cc diesel engine is able to deliver 180 Hp of power at 2,400 rpm and 650 Nm of torque at 1,000 – 1,300 rpm with a maximum speed of 105 km/ h. The engine is electronically controlled with pre-injection and a post-positioned gear chamber that effectively muffs out the noise. It is also Euro 5 emission standards compliant and consumes less than 200 grams of fuel per kW hour. On the other hand, Autokid Truck Solutions offers the Dongfeng KR with a Cummins B190 33 6 cylinders inline turbocharged and intercooler with a fluid cooling system engine. The 5,900 cc Euro 3 compliant diesel engine provides 190 Hp of power at 2,500 rpm and 640 Nm of torque at 1,500 rpm.
Dongfeng KR Braking & SafetyFor commercial and trucking solutions, the Dongfeng KR stands out in terms of safety and convenience features. The KR is equipped with front window wiper and washer, power-operated windows, central locking, and easily adjustable seating which can’t be said in most of the heavy and medium-duty trucks. Moreover, besides the 3 pt. seatbelts, this Chinese manufactured and assembled truck also comes with an SRS airbag which is very rare in most trucks. Besides the aforementioned, the KR also comes with an integrated main reducer housing that is lightweight, sturdy, and with good sealing to ensure the integrity of transmission parts. Add to that is the patented lubricating pump technology of the middle axle that effectively prevents the bearing from burn out.
Dongfeng KR VerdictThe Dongfeng KR is a reliable, heavy-duty truck that can deliver performance and efficiency. Those looking for a six-wheeler hauler, the Dongfeng KR offers a flexible body option that can fit any business needs. Plus, brand new units are available in both Dongfeng and AutoKid dealerships.
