Kenworth TruckTech+ Over-the-Air Updates Introduces Video, Quick Reference Guide

KIRKLAND, Wash., June 26, 2020 - The Kenworth TruckTech+® Over-The-Air Updates program has introduced an informative video and added a quick reference guide.

Kenworth TruckTech+ Over-The-Air is a software update system that helps fleets and truck operators to optimize truck performance and maximize uptime with the latest engine and aftertreatment software version – done safely and securely over-the-air. The updates are for Class 8 Kenworth trucks equipped with a 2017 or newer model year PACCAR MX-13 or PACCAR MX-11 engine.

To initiate updates, Kenworth customers must use the PACCAR Over-The-Air mobile app available for download from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. Customers with active Kenworth TruckTech+ subscriptions can then view these updates using the PACCAR Over-The-Air app or the PACCAR Solutions online portal (www.PACCARSolutions.com).

The PACCAR Solutions portal provides users with visibility to all their Kenworth trucks, performance data, and available software updates. Once the user approves the update, the system notifies the user when the download is ready for installation.

When the Class 8 Kenworth truck is parked, a simple five-second press of the cruise control set switch connects the truck to the secure PACCAR cloud server. The software update is initiated through the PACCAR mobile app, which offers monitoring of the download and informs the user of its completion.
