DEFINING AERODYNAMICS

AUSTRALIA’S PREMIUM BONNETED PRIME MOVER

Kenworth’s T609 is primarily suited to on-highway applications and offers a range of engine options up to 600 horsepower, with excellent cooling capacity and all the in-cab luxuries.

Well suited to multiple trailer combinations including B-Double and road trains, the T609 stands out for outright versatility, road presence and unmatched aerodynamic styling.

With stunning looks and perfect road manners it’s no wonder the T609 turns heads on the highways, and looks equally impressive when it comes to performance figures.

Welcome to our Business Class interior, designed to deliver maximum driver confidence, with comfort and control in perfect harmony.

Comfort and control

Classic styling has been teamed with the highest standards of quality and safety in our cab design.

The large one-piece curved windscreen offers a commanding view of the road ahead with excellent all round visibility.

An unobstructed view of gauges and easy access to vital switches and controls are provided by the cleverly designed wrap around dash, enhancing driver comfort and minimising fatigue.

Convenient storage, contemporary trim, privacy curtain, a range of seat options and “Smart Wheel” fingertip access for engine brake and cruise functions, all deliver further driver confidence, comfort and control.
