When you think about a heavy duty truck, probably one of the top images that pops into your head is that of a Kenworth W900. It has been on the roads since 1961, and has not only been serving drivers for more than 50 years and earning many awards during that time, but it even has earned several cinematic credits. After so many years and so much recognition, ‘legendary’ is really the only way to describe the Kenworth W900.
The Kenworth W900 first appeared on the scene in 1961, looking awfully similar to today’s models. While subtle styling changes differentiate those early models from today’s trucks, nearly every part has been redesigned over the last 50+ years, including the invention of the sleeper cab in the 1970s, the addition of rectangular headlights in 1982 and the addition of the W900S model in 1987. However, the biggest introduction occurred in 1989 – the launch of the W900L.
The Kenworth W900L is an extended hood version of the W900B and quickly became one of Kenworth’s best sellers, especially with owner-operators. This model still remains very popular today with this same group of buyers.
The Kenworth W900 is one of the most customizable trucks on the market. It can come as a day cab or with several different sleeper options, including the massive 86-inch Studio AeroCab, which is one of the most spacious and comfortable sleepers on the market. With dozens of interior options, any Kenworth W900 can be equipped to a buyer’s specifications, giving them the perfect level of comfort and space.
Under the hood, the Kenworth W900 is available with the PACCAR MX-13 engine or the Cummins ISX, each mated to a transmission of your choice, including a variety of automatic and manual transmissions. No matter what you choose, power will never be at a shortage.
