The Kenworth W990, the new long-hood conventional truck, is now available for order. The Kenworth W990 leverages the 67-year evolution of the iconic W900 platform, the company says. The Kenworth W990 begins production in January 2019 at the Kenworth assembly plant in Chillicothe, Ohio.
Designed to maximize performance in over-the-road and vocational applications, the Kenworth W990 is available in day cab, 40-in. flat top, and both 52-in. and 76-in. mid-roof sleeper configurations. The W990 is standard with the proprietary Paccar Powertrain consisting of the Paccar MX-13 engine rated up to 510 hp and 1,850 lb.-ft. of torque, 12-speed Paccar automated transmission and Paccar 40K tandem rear axles.
The W990 offers numerous options. Special comfort and style options include the W990 Limited Edition black interior, and the Driver’s Studio package of premium options that create a home-on-the road living experience. The W990 is standard with Kenworth TruckTech+ remote diagnostics system, the company says.
“The Kenworth W990’s outstanding performance, lifestyle amenities and classical styling truly makes it ‘The Driver’s Truck,’” says Kurt Swihart, Kenworth marketing director.
