Kenworth Introduces Certified Pre-Owned Program

The Kenworth Certified Pre-Owned Program was introduced in conjunction with the recent Used Truck Association (UTA) Annual Convention.

Exclusive to Kenworth dealers and PACCAR Financial Used Truck Centers, the new program enables customers to purchase quality, pre-owned and certified Kenworth Class 8 trucks in the United States and Canada.  Qualifying Kenworth trucks are late model and low mileage, and will come standard with engine and aftertreatment warranty coverage.  

Each Kenworth vehicle must pass a comprehensive 150-point inspection, which includes engine, aftertreatment, interior, exterior, chassis, electronics, safety devices, and a road test. Each truck must be certified by a Kenworth dealer technician, carry D.O.T. certification, and receive a full diesel particulate filter (DPF) cleaning, and an  oil and filter change.

“Kenworth trucks are recognized and respected for their excellent quality, fuel efficiency and durability. With the new program’s official launch in January 2017, truck buyers will receive a high level of confidence when buying pre-owned Kenworths that have undergone thorough inspections and are certified according to Kenworth’s high standards,” said Kurt Swihart, Kenworth marketing director.

Customers will be able to search for Kenworth Certified Pre-Owned trucks on the homepage. Information will include detailed vehicle specifications and photos, and dealer location.
