paccar complete drivetrain

Kenworth now offers two additional ratings for the 12.9-liter PACCAR MX-13 engine, which is available in the Kenworth T680, T880, and the all-new W990.

Onalaska, Wisconsin – Wisconsin Kenworth, a CSM Company, held a groundbreaking event to kick off the build of the newest Kenworth truck dealership facility.

Wisconsin Kenworth – La Crosse will nearly double the size of their current location to enhance the customer experience.

The Kenworth T880 is now available in a set-forward axle and sleeper configuration designed for long-haul applications. Until early 2019, the set-forward axle only came in a T880 day cab.

The T880 has revolutionized the vocational and heavy-haul segments of the trucking industry, and now it’s poised to make a deeper dent on the class 8 market with the added options of the set-forward design. Called T880s, the set forward sleeper should be popular with bulk commodities and flatbed transporters because it’s able to support greater “tongue weight.”

Before a PACCAR MX engine is put to work in a customer truck, the design gets run through a gauntlet of countless hours of testing to ensure quality, performance, and best-in-class service life.

Designed for one million miles (more to come on that point), the MX-13, up to 510 hp, or the smaller and lighter MX-11, up to 430 hp, is spec’d in the majority of PacLease Class 8 trucks in a full-service lease.

Cody’s Cause

Local Boy Helps Organize Toy Drives

Cody Struble is an eight-year-old boy with a heart of gold. By the time he was five years old, Struble had three surgeries to correct a skull condition. The trips he spent in the emergency room sparked an idea for Cody. On his way home from his last surgery, Cody told his mother, Sonia Ericksen, that he wanted to do something so patients received presents on Christmas Day.

The future of trucking is here: the W990. This long hood conventional model is a modern take on the fan favorite W900. This model was officially released on September 27, 2018, in Las Vegas. To promote the new W990, Kenworth set up a tour that traveled around the United States to premiere their new crown model. It only made sense that the W990 Tour made a stop at Michigan Kenworth.

Christmas is coming to the Capitol. A 2,800 mile journey will bring the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree from Willamette National Forest in Oregon to Washington D.C. Its mode of transportation is the all-new Kenworth W990.
