We have some of the most demanding road conditions in the world, with many trucks in Australia travelling vast distances on corrugated roads, through billowing dust and extreme heat and humidity. Australian trucks can also haul more than three times heavier loads than trucks in other parts of the world.
To meet these challenges a truck needs to be reliable and tough enough to stand the test of time, while providing operators with a safe and comfortable environment.
Kenworths work harder for longer, because each truck is purpose designed for its intended task, then manufactured to those exacting specifications with uncompromising quality, at our world-class production facility in the Melbourne suburb of Bayswater.
Depending on the model and specification, a Kenworth truck comprises around 60 percent Australian-owned resources and our supply chain includes over 70 Australian suppliers located across nearly 300 local sites, the majority are Australian-owned companies located in the Melbourne region.
Supported by PACCAR’s global strength and services, and with the backing of an extensive dealer network, Kenworth delivers the right truck for you and your environment.
