In my previous article we looked at a few Peterbilt Dealers, well this time we are going to focus on Kenworth Dealers.
Now, I do think we should briefly touch on a few basics in regards to commercial trucks and professional truck drivers, before discussing some individual Kenworth dealers, as well as parts and service centers.
It is funny just how different models of similar vehicles are on the road. Many of those available in the USA might not be found elsewhere and vice versa and what is common in one area might not be as common in another.
Currently in the USA you will find 5 main manufactures trucks on the road. Keep in mind that doesn’t mean there aren’t others, these are just the most common.
In alphabetical order the most common truck brands are:
Though Kenworth has been around a while, their trucks tend to be the newest seen on the road. This is by percentage when compared to other truck companies (not overall market share).
It is estimated that about 72 percent of those are from 2011 -2016. 62 percent of these are sleeper cabs, again by average more than the other commercial trucks.
Though Kenworth started in Portland, Oregon, they are now based in the Seattle, Washington suburb of Kirkland, Washington.
The first of the Kenworth rolled off the assembly line in 1923 when business partners, Kent and Worthington, merged company into the Kenworth Motor Truck Company. Since then they have expanded operations to Canada, Mexico, and even Australia.
