Kenworth W900. A true classic.
When you’ve arrived, there’s really only one choice to make;
Kenworth W900. The perfect fusion of cutting-edge technologies, expert engineering and classic styling. It just doesn’t get any better than this.
From the day it was introduced, the W900 reflected a dramatic departure
in heavy-duty trucks. It brought the road to life for drivers and owners alike. Set the pace in long-haul performance, reliability, ease of maintenance, productivity and sheer luxury. Combined ready-for-anything functionality with beautifully aesthetic design like never before. And proved as comfortable behind the wheel as it was on the bottom line. Since then, our job has been to carefully – and continually – refine the W900 without changing what made it great.
Today, few things in business exceed expectations quite like a Kenworth long-nosed conventional. Fewer still continue to excite and inspire successive generations of drivers. For many, a W900 is the ultimate goal. And no wonder. In a world of copycats, knockoffs and unrelenting parity, this is an original – a rare piece of individuality you can call your own.
Kenworth W900. A high value – real world – solution.
Custom-engineered from bumper to taillight, the W900 comes almost any way you want it. Spec it lean for payload-hungry applications – selecting from a multitude of weight-saving options. Or order it decked out with factory-installed, signature-setting Kenworth exclusives such as polished battery boxes, tool boxes and fuel tanks.
Stainless cowl-mounted air cleaners. Dual polished vertical exhaust stacks. Lighted trim panels. Roof-mounted lamps and horns. 86” Studio Sleeper. You name it.
Maybe you need a truck with some serious backbone. Dump truck. Mixer. Lowboy. Logger. W900.
Your design choices encompass the latest technologies and a spectrum of proven heavy-duty components for GCWs to 200,000 pounds or more. The highest horsepower engines. Front axles up to 18,000 pounds. Liftable pusher and tag axles. Single, tandem and tridem drives.
Numerous transmission options, including auxiliaries. Rear engine PTOs. Dual power steering. Center front tow hook. And a wide range of steel frame selections – with up to two inserts.
Which W900 Model will you choose?
The W900 is built on a proven platform cleverly engineered
so that the deeper you look, the more there is to appreciate.
It’s easy to be attracted by the pure pleasure of owning the best, most prestigious truck on the road. But there’s even more beauty under the skin – in the form of day in, day out dependability, mechanical integrity and longevity.
Take the cab as just one example. Legendary for its toughness, a Kenworth combines aluminum and fiberglass in an assembly that’s practically corrosion-proof. Huckbolts hold all the pieces together with a clamping force six times greater than rivets, so the cab’s strong, tight and more rattle-free.
Then there are all the little things you might not notice that help keep big things from going wrong. Wiring and plumbing bundled together and mounted high in the frame, safe from chafing, road salts or washing acids. Threaded steel shackle pins and bushings to extend suspension life and improve steering. Constant torque hose clamps. Radiator tie rods mounted to frame – not the cab – for longer radiator life. And so much more.
It’s this kind of attention to detail that keeps you moving ahead. Day in, day out.
