Two new truck models highlight 100 years of Kenworth

February 16, 2023

Kenworth this year celebrates its diamond anniversary – a 100 year milestone that the countries of the former Soviet Union will not celebrate for another 70-plus years.

If the Kirkland, Washington-based truck manufacturer was a person, they would be an centenarian. However, they would still be well outside the top 100 oldest known living persons – a list dominated by people at least a decade older than the company founded in 1923 when Harry W. Kent and Edgar K. Worthington re-incorporated the Gersix Motor Company as “Kenworth”.
