Kenworth hits historic one-million-truck milestone

Jan. 21, 2015

Kenworth Truck Company celebrated its historic One Millionth Truck produced in the company’s 91 years during a special ceremony in December 2014 at Kenworth’s assembly plant in Chillicothe OH.

The milestone truck is a Kenworth T680 Advantage with the 455-hp PACCAR MX-13 engine and factory-installed Kenworth aerodynamic package that was presented to TransAm Trucking, a refrigerated carrier based in Olathe KS. 

“The production and delivery of our One Millionth Truck caps off an outstanding year for Kenworth,” said Gary Moore, Kenworth general manager and PACCAR vice president. “It’s appropriate that the milestone truck is the on-highway flagship Kenworth T680 Advantage, our excellent fuel efficiency leader, and that TransAm, an excellent supporter of the T680 and PACCAR MX-13 engine, is our customer for this special honor.”
