Developing the Kenworth W990
The W990 hit the scene at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway to quite a bit of fanfare. Since then, the truck has been turning skeptics into believers and giving Kenworth fans a roomier long hood ride to stretch out in.
Kenworth designers built the W990 around the driver. Driver comfort was the primary mission in developing the W990, but Kenworth still managed to maintain style elements that speak to the company’s long heritage of form and function. Most importantly, the truck features that trademark peak in the top-middle of the grille, loads of chrome and stainless steel, and an imposing posture.
The W990 comes in three sleeper truck options: 40-inch flat top, 52-inch mid roof, and 76-inch mid roof. Additionally, the truck is available in a day cab or cab and chassis configuration.
The W990 shares many similarities with the T680 and T880. In fact, both sister units are almost the same from the firewall back. However, one of the major advantages is optimization for the all-new PACCAR Powertrain.
PACCAR’s integrated powertrain is engineered to bring power and performance together, with the intention of maximum value for both fleets and owner operators. Above all, with the PACCAR Powertrain on board, the W990 is set up to meet the challenges of the modern world and look cool doing it.
