Spartan Specialty Vehicles, a business unit of Spartan Motors Inc., offered displayed its 2019 Spartan K3 605 chassis for the first time to consumers at the June 25-30 Newmar Kountry Klub International Rally in Gillette, Wyo.
Revealed to dealer partners at Newmar’s annual dealer meeting earlier this year in Dallas, Texas, the 2019 Newmar Class A lineup boasts Spartan’s most advanced technology innovations to date, according to a press release. Newmar’s King Aire, Essex, London Aire, Mountain Aire, and Dutch Star models feature Spartan Connected Coach, a technology bundle including the new digital dash display and keyless push-button start.
Additionally, Spartan’s Advanced Protection System is standard on the King Aire, Essex, London Aire, and Mountain Aire, and is comprised of safety systems such as Collision Mitigation, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Spartan Safe Haul — a chassis-integrated air supply for tow vehicle braking systems. New for the 2019 model year, Spartan Safe Haul is now standard on all Newmar models equipped with Spartan chassis.
Spartan and Newmar have also partnered to offer the Newmar Ventana 40- and 43-foot tag axle models built on Spartan’s all-new K2 400 chassis for the 2019 model year. The K2 400 features a Cummins L9 400 horsepower diesel engine and an Allison 3000MH transmission. Spartan Passive Keyless Start and Spartan Safe Haul are standard on both Ventana tag axle models built on the K2 400.
“The Newmar Kountry Klub International Rally is the largest annual gathering of Newmar motorhome owners, making it the perfect venue to introduce the latest, top-of-the-line RV chassis the market has to offer,” said Steve Guillaume, president of Spartan Specialty Vehicles. “Our K3 605 chassis takes the best of our world-class foundation and adds the latest performance technology on the market. The result is the safest, most refined, and most dependable RV experience on the road today.”
Spartan’s K3 605 chassis features a 20,000-pound towing capacity, Cummins X15 605-hp diesel engine, Allison Transmission 4000 MH 6-speed electronic transmission, and a 20,000-pound independent front air suspension.
2019 Newmar coach models equipped with Spartan chassis now include Spartan’s extended five-year, 75,000-mile, bumper-to-bumper warranty.
