WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR YOUR KENWORTH TO BE ‘AUSTRALIAN MADE’?

At Kenworth, we are proud of what we do and are dedicated in delivering the best Australian-made product to you. Our trucks are renowned across Australia and around the world, helping people get the job done day-in, day-out and we design and manufacture our trucks with uncompromising quality to meet the task at hand and to suit individual customer requirements.  We know, businesses that transport goods are as vital to Australia’s economy as those that grow, mine or manufacture them. So we make it our business to build them the world’s best trucks.

But what does that mean for your truck to be Australian-made? At Kenworth, making our trucks in Australia is about more than just where the engine turns over for the first time – it reflects a specific set of values and principles that our company stands behind.

If you’re wondering why you need to make sure your next truck is an Australian-made Kenworth, read on and let us show you why our trucks are the best choice for your job.

Built by people who understand your needs

Locally built means local knowledge. Building our trucks right here in Australia means they’re created by people who better understand your needs, your industry and the local market. While many companies in Europe and the Americas make high-quality vehicles that are rigorously tested, there’s simply no replacement for first-hand knowledge of local driving conditions and industry.

Manufacturing our trucks right here in Australia means that we’re able to subject our trucks to the most accurate simulation of real-world driving conditions – the open road. We continually test our products on the same roads and in the same conditions you’ll drive them in, ensuring that every time you step behind the wheel of your Kenworth, you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing your truck is up to the test.

Our local team is composed of some of the most experienced and talented designers and engineers in Australia, all dedicated to delivering the best driving experience possible. Building in Australia means we can leverage the high standard of technology our country enjoys, using the latest techniques and hardware to create each and every truck. Designed smart, built tough just for Australia, there’s no finer choice for local industry than Kenworth.

A unique environment

Part of what makes Australian driving conditions so unique is our extreme and diverse weather conditions. From snow-covered peaks in the east to tropical jungle in the north to the blistering deserts of the outback, a truck that’s ready for Australia has to be ready for some of the harshest environments in the world.

At Kenworth, we know exactly how demanding our country can be on trucks, so we purpose build every one of our vehicles to withstand these conditions and make them tough enough to stand the test of time. Safer by design, they excel in every environment, providing the reliability and durability you need to get the job done. A truck that is engineered to suit a specific application and environment will outperform the rest.

We’re hard on our trucks so the road isn’t. To be Australian Made, World’s Best, we first cover millions of kilometres in the harshest Australian conditions, testing cooling, brakes, suspensions and every other component to the limit – helping to protect you against boil overs and other serious mechanical issues.

Safer by Design

At Kenworth protecting the driver, vehicle, payload and other road users against unexpected hazards has always been a paramount consideration. Safety is built into every truck through Application Engineering, a design approach that also delivers optimal payloads, reliability and productivity. Ease of operation and the comfort of the driver are imperative to maintain the safety of the load.

Kenworth Business Class interiors combine classic Kenworth styling with the highest standards of cab ergonomics and safety, further minimising driver distraction. Kenworth Electronic Brake Safety Systems (EBSS) further enhance vehicle control ad accident avoidance with a comprehensive list of options available to help you stay in control. The result? A safer, more comfortable driving experience that delivers better results for you and your organisation.

Never satisfied

At Kenworth, we’re tireless in our quest to deliver a better result for our customers, investing in ongoing research and development to enhance the safety, comfort, efficiency, reliability and environmental friendliness of our trucks. Australian drivers work in some of the harshest conditions and travel thousands of kilometres over some of the most isolated roads on the planet – our commitment to delivering a better driving experience with every truck we make means that we’re always meeting challenges as they emerge.
