Kenworth Delivers Historic Truck to TransAm Trucking

Kenworth Truck Company celebrated its historic One Millionth Truck produced in the company’s 91 years during a special ceremony at Kenworth’s assembly plant in Chillicothe, OH.

The milestone truck is a Kenworth T680 Advantage with the 455-hp PACCAR MX-13 engine and factory-installed Kenworth aerodynamic package. The truck was presented to TransAm Trucking in Olathe, KS, before a large gathering of Kenworth employees. TransAm is one of the leading refrigerated carriers in the U.S. and operates 1,050 Kenworth Class 8 trucks.

“The production and delivery of our One Millionth Truck caps off an outstanding year for Kenworth,” said Gary Moore, Kenworth general manager and PACCAR vice president. “It’s appropriate that the milestone truck is the on-highway flagship Kenworth T680 Advantage, our excellent fuel efficiency leader, and that TransAm, an excellent supporter of the T680 and PACCAR MX-13 engine, is our customer for this special honor.”
