• Needless to say, your buying criteria for heavy-duty trucks isn’t what it used to be. Today, you need equipment that’s easier to own and more affordable to operate. Equipment that will work harder, last longer and retain its value. Today, you need a more productive, more When you need a truck with the strength – and versatility – to tackle anything your business demands, settling for just anything in a truck won’t get you where you want to go. profit-oriented, more reliable truck: Kenworth T800.

• Kenworth’s T800 is the ultimate workhorse – as much at home running freight coast to coast as it is delivering fuel across town or hauling gravel out of a quarry. Imagine the bottom-line advantages of a single base chassis that can do almost anything you ask of it. Plus, the T800 is built-to-take-it tough – proven very, very difficult to break.

• Add the driver-side benefits of excellent maneuverability, operating efficiency and comfort … and you’ve got not just a truck, but a whole new solution.

• Kenworth T800. A high value – real world – solution. Advanced technology and street-smart design – sloped hood, fuel-efficient drive train, aerodynamic options, unconventional maneuverability and high-style livability – make a T800 the perfect do-anything road warrior.

• Available in 122.5 or 115.5-inch BBC, this responsive, smooth-riding conventional comes almost any way you want it. Spec it lean for payload-hungry applications – selecting from a multitude of weight-saving options. Dress it down in a no-frills day cab configuration for regional delivery. Or order it as a decked-out thoroughbred with factory-installed, signature-setting Kenworth exclusives such as polished battery boxes, toolboxes and fuel tanks. Stainless cowl-mounted air cleaners. Dual polished vertical exhaust stacks. Lighted trim panels. Roof-mounted lamps and horns. You name it.

• Inside, the T800 is pure Kenworth – ergonomically designed and filled with more driver-pleasing space, convenience features and luxury detail than you’ve ever imagined in a truck this productive. And check out the latest in Kenworth sleepers, sized to suit your job and lifestyle. Choose any Kenworth AeroCab model including our highly prized Studio Sleeper. Maybe you need a truck with some serious backbone. Dump truck. Mixer. Lowboy. Logger. T800.

• Kenworth knows how to build trucks that can shoulder maximum payload with minimum tare weight and move that burden with sure-footed confidence over steep, uneven and slippery job sites. That’s why your T800 starts as a clean sheet of paper, its wheelbase custom tailored to your specifications.

• Your design choices encompass the latest technologies and a spectrum of proven heavy-duty components for GCWs to 330,000 pounds. The highest horsepower engines. Radiators sized from 1,440 to 1,780 square inches. Front axles up to 22,000 pounds. Twin steer front axles to 37,500 pounds. Front drive axles. Pusher axles and tags. Single, tandem and tridem drives. Every transmission option including auxiliaries. Rear and front engine PTOs. Dual power steering. Center front tow hitch. And a wide range of steel frame selections – with up to two inserts.

• All these options can be factory installed for a quality finished product that will move your business ahead the minute you put it to work. It’s easy to understand why so many professionals would rather go to work in a Kenworth than any other truck on the road. From floor mat to headliner, the T800 has been ergonomically fashioned for comfort, productivity and precise control.

• The latest T800 cab features plenty of leg room – belly, knee and elbow room, too. Plus, it’s quieter than its predecessor – by about 20 percent. The state-of-the-art dash utilizes multiplexed electronic instrumentation and large, easy-to-reach switches and controls. The back-lit glare-free gauges with quick-to-read graphics. And the center console with two 12-volt outlets and a perfect place to store your cell phone, cups and soft drinks.

• Then there are all the subtle things you can’t see – you simply have to experience them. Like Kenworth’s high-performance heater/air conditioner with the motor thoughtfully mounted on the firewall to minimize cab noise. The flatter toe board angle and suspended throttle and clutch pedals that reduce leg strain. And the perfect fit and finish of Kenworth craftsmanship. More Payload: The T800, with its 48.5-inch set-back front axle, enables you to transfer more of the vehicle’s weight to the front end – taking full advantage of its rated capacity. Any weight you can legally shift to the front axle, you can profitably add to payload – each and every truckload.

• More Agility: The T800 incorporates advanced steering geometry that produces maximum wheel cut and a tight turning circle – even with flotation-type tires and front drive axle configurations. That advantage, plus a dramatically sloped hood and strategically placed, generously sized windows can increase driver confidence in tight situations.

• More Control: Kenworth applies sophisticated ergonomic principles and state-of-the-art technologies to create trucks that are easier and safer to drive. Multi-function steering wheel, clutchless automated and automatic transmissions, multiplexed instrumentation and wireless communication systems all contribute to less fatiguing, more productive operation. From day one, Kenworth has engineered strong, lightweight trucks you can count on. Trucks with an unmatched ability to stay together, do the job, cost less to maintain and pay back their investments.

• Just slam the door on a 10-year-old T800 mixer to see what we mean. Chances are it feels as solid as the day the truck left the factory. Legendary for its longevity and integrity, Kenworth’s conventional cab combines aluminum and fiberglass in a Huckbolted assembly that’s practically corrosion-proof and rattle-free.

• Then there are all the little things you might not notice that help keep big things from going wrong. Wiring and plumbing bundled together and mounted high in the frame, safe from chafing, road salts or washing acids. Rubber-bushed shackle pins and bushings to extend suspension life and improve steering. Constant torque hose clamps. Radiator tie rods mounted to frame – not the cab – for longer radiator life. And so much more.

• It’s this kind of attention to detail that keeps you moving ahead. Day in, day out. Tip the hood to see what we mean (inner fenders tilt out of the way at the same time). The engine sits high in the frame and totally ahead of the cab for complete access. You can check fluid levels and change fuel, oil and water filters while standing on the ground – not on a tire. The heater/air conditioner motor, electrical master connectors, windshield wiper motor and washer reservoir are all on the firewall, easier to repair.

• Now take a close look at the engine cooling system. On a T800, it incorporates straight sections of reinforced rubber hose that are more readily available and much less expensive to replace than preformed hoses, along with steel elbows that are good for a lifetime of service.

• Even the electrical system – a maintenance headache for most operators – has been designed for durability and streamlined troubleshooting. Multiplex instrumentation greatly simplifies cab wiring which is further color-coded and numbered for easy circuit tracing.

• Quick-to-fix engineering features like these can mean a lot less downtime, shop time and money out of your pocket. Whether you choose a workhorse-rugged, yet way-above standard Splendor interior or the custom look of a Diamond upholstery package, the inside of a Kenworth has been designed to help those behind the wheel operate at their absolute best. Perform at peak efficiency. And rest in an environment that brings them closer to home.

• Tour a Kenworth Studio Sleeper, or one of our AeroCab sleepers. Note the consummate balance between business and pleasure. The thoughtful, convenient and productive layout. The creative and elegant interior appointments. All handcrafted to the same exacting standard we use to build the rest of your Kenworth T800.

• Then imagine the pride you’d feel knowing you’ve been given the keys to The World’s Best truck. That sense of pride is one of the reasons Kenworth trucks last longer, work harder and bring more at trade-in. And one of the reasons Kenworth operators keep their best drivers. The result is an integrated, fully-engineered, job-ready solution you can depend on – right from the start.

• For hauling maximum legal loads without sacrificing strength and durability, you can select from a long list of weight-saving components and options including aluminum hubs, lightweight drums, aluminum clutch housing, aluminum bumper, lightweight charging/starting systems, composite leaf springs and more.

•The minute you take delivery of your Kenworth, you gain 24/7 access to one of the most extensive and reliable parts and service organizations in the trucking industry. People who know your truck inside out and can show you how to lower operating expenses, maximize uptime, optimize truck performance and profit from your investment.
