KIRKLAND, Wash., (Aug. 18, 2003) — Kenworth Truck has been awarded the prestigious J.D. Power and Associates 2003 Heavy-Duty Truck Customer Satisfaction award, in the Pickup and Delivery segment, for Class 8 trucks.

“This is a tremendous honor for Kenworth, our dealers, and our T800, T600 and W900 models that are used in this market,” Bob Christensen, Kenworth general manager and PACCAR vice-president, said in a press release.
