See the official Kenworth W900L brochure here.

The Kenworth W900 – It may have a lot of modern tech and enhancements under the hood, but outside, it’s classic trucking all the way. The 2013 Kenworth W900 sleeper cab has everything where it counts, including the looks.

The first appointments you may notice are the classic stretch hood design along with dual high polished chrome stacks that bark out that recognizable Kenworth exhaust note. It’s the best of both worlds when it comes to head-turning shapes and aerodynamic lines.

In-cab storage includes a convenient place to put your thermos; upholstered seat back pockets; slide-in logbook and pen holder; center console with drink holders, two 12-volt outlets and a perfect spot to place your cell phone and more.

Kenworth W900: Good Looks + Smart Tech

Kenworth NavPlus The factory-installed, in-dash system is designed for life on the road. At the heart of Kenworth NavPlus is an on-board navigation system, which provides drivers with true truck-optimized routes from Garmin, customized to truck and load specifications.

NavPlus integrates Bluetooth wireless technology with a built-in microphone and speaker. Drivers can pair it with their compatible Bluetooth phone and talk hands-free. The system, which is voice-recognition-enabled for phone dialing, logs phone calls, imports contact information, and enables text messaging for those using a Bluetooth device. Drivers can hear the calls through the cab’s sound system. Kenworth NavPlus also offers audio controls (including satellite-enabled radio, AM/FM, CD, MP3 and USB), and camera inputs for up to four optional video cameras for monitoring the truck and trailer.
