Kenworth Truck Parts and Accessories

The truck company, Kenworth, is a subsidiary of PACCAR. It started in 1923 when two mechanics, H.W. Kent and E.K. Worthington, released their first product in Seattle (can you tell how they came up with the company name and got its logo, KW?). In the early 1930s, Kenworth not only began to produce fire trucks, but it also became the first truck manufacturer to use diesel engines.

Kenworth, referred to as “The World’s Best”, has since expanded beyond the boundaries it had during the beginning of the 20th century. Not only has it entered into the world market, but it also has expanded its repertoire of trucks. Kenworth currently produces a wide variety of vocational, medium-duty, on-highway and off-highway trucks. In addition, like other truck manufacturing companies, Kenworth provides its customers with access to a choice selection of PACCAR truck parts. Signing up for a Kenworth Rewards card can give you access to unique deals, privileges and savings.

Like Peterbilt, another subsidiary of PACCAR, Kenworth provides roadside assistance and fleet services. Kenworth’s roadside assistance program is operated by Kenworth PremierCare and is around 24/7 via hotline to give immediate towing, jump start and mechanical repair assistance, the location of the nearest Kenworth dealer, and preventive maintenance; registration is free. Kenworth uses the PACCAR Parts Fleet Services Program to provide special benefits to fleet owners.

The benefits include consolidated billing and increased control over truck reports and expenses. For more information, you can check out Kenworth’s official website, www.kenworth.com or www.paccar.com.
