All About Kenworth Trucks: The Company, The Trucks and The Battery

Kenworth Trucks are made by Kenworth which is an American company that manufactures heavy duty Class 8 Trucks. It has been involved in the manufacturing of transit and school bus from 1926 to 1930. Its manufacturing of bus started waning from the onset of the Second World War to its gradual movement to production of heavy duty trucks. Kenworth was founded by George T. and his brother, Louis Gerlinger Jr.

Kenworth was originally established as Gerlinger Motor Car Works since it originally focused on making car and truck deals. It eventually got into manufacturing when its founders decided to build their own truck powered by an inline 6 cylinder engine. The company underwent through ownership changes which changed its name from Gerlinger Motor Car Works to Gerix Motor co. After a few more years and another ownership change, its owners finally settled for the name Kenworth which was a combination two names: Ken and Worth. Over the years of its operation, its brand has often been associated with high quality trucks. And this has been proven the by the company itself by winning five out of six JD Power Awards back in 2005 and by taking the JD Power Awards for the Heavy Duty Truck Product Satisfaction in 2007. Two of its recent and popular truck models to the company’s brand image which are Kenworth T600 and Kenworth T660 in particular.

The Kenworth T600 is derived from one of the brand’s previous model, Kenworth W900. It has almost every feature that the W900 has including precise body and chassis design, powerful engine and a top class interior design. What makes Kenworth T600 is its fuel efficiency. Unlike most trucks, you can reduce your fuel consumption up to 22% which can not only save you money for your fuel expenses but also cut your fuel refilling time. This can help boost productivity in your day to day operations.

The Kenworth T660, on the other hand, is the direct successor of Kenworth T600 and the cousin of Kenworth W900. Unlike its similar counterparts, the T660 has a peculiar body design but for a good purpose. Its design has less drag to maximize fuel efficiency and productivity. With ergonomic interior, it not only has intelligent controls but it also has a silent cabin and comfortable vehicular furniture that provides a satisfying driving experience. It may seem too small and weak for its design but do not be fooled. Its body and chassis is made of tough materials and comes with a powerful engine.

Among the things that make Kenworth Trucks better than other are their high quality vehicular parts and equipment. One of the significant parts that keep these trucks in their peak performance is the Kenworth Truck battery which without proper care can cause decline in performance as well as decrease in lifespan. To make sure your Kenworth Truck Battery is always in top shape, you need to put it through proper maintenance work and have it replaced when necessary. You can do this by calling phone number 1300 468 931 and asking for a quotation and recommendations for Kenworth Truck battery repair and replacement.

Thanks for the great service. I didn’t realise that getting a battery delivered and installed cost less than buying it in the shops. I’ll be telling all my mates about Roadside Response.

Keero was really helpful over the phone. He asked a couple of questions and we figured out straight away that the problem was most likely a dead battery. Phil was in the area and arrived in less than 40 minutes. Got a new battery and I was back up and running again. Thanks guys.
