For us, the journey began in ’71 when the first Australian-made Kenworth trucks rolled off the line.
There have been challenges along the way, like those dusty outback tracks on which the Kenworth legend was forged, but we persevered… We’re not alone on that score; Australia’s transport operators have never been short on tenacity. From the saleyards, the forests, and the remotest of mines, to the ports, cities, and paddocks in harvest–there’s always been opportunity… another destination, another payload, another journey.
For more than four decades, Australian-made Kenworths have helped operators haul huge payloads, across vast distances on roads good, bad and sometimes barely there at all.
And there have been more than a few changes since those first Cab Overs and W models were built. Each of the uniquely Australian models released over the years was developed to be the best tool for the job; more capability, more durability, and more than just a little appeal for the driver behind the wheel.
We’ve sold them to first timers with a glint in their eye and fire in their belly; to family businesses passing the load from generation to generation; multinational corporations; and everyone in between.
As a tribute to those with whom we’ve so proudly shared the journey, we are releasing a limited edition model unlike any before it—the Legend 900.
Celebrating our heritage with an instantly recognisable road presence, this unique Kenworth combines original styling accents from our early years of manufacturing in this country, with an iconic model that wrote its own chapter in our ongoing journey.
Only a limited number of these Legend 900s will be manufactured. Will you be one of the few to secure your piece of Kenworth history?
