How to Choose the Right Truck for Your Business Needs


Imagine your business is a puzzle, and the right Kenworth is that missing piece that makes everything fit perfectly. For industries that require a heavy-duty truck, the right Kenworth is more than just something to pull your load – it becomes an indispensable asset. Choosing the right truck might seem like just another decision, but the right truck can be the game-changer your business needs. At GreatWest Kenworth, we understand the significance of this decision, and we offer a diverse range of trucks designed to tackle any application you set your sights on. 

1. Define Your Application 

First things first, understand what your business needs. Different businesses have different requirements. If you’re into construction, you’ll want a truck that can handle just about anything like the T880, known for its durability, power, and versatility. Whereas a delivery services organization might need a truck that’s efficient on fuel and can carry a lot of packages like the T480 with a box on the back. 

2. Evaluate the Range of Trucks Offered

GreatWest Kenworth offers an impressive lineup of trucks, each tailored to specific business needs. If you’re in the business of long-haul transportation, the W990 or T680 models deliver a balance of performance and comfort. These two tough Kenworth are ideal for maximizing driver comfort during extended trips while keeping operating costs under control.

3. Consider Payload (GCW) and Towing Capabilities 

Payload capacity (GCW) refers to the maximum weight a truck can carry, including the cargo, the people inside the vehicle, tools and any fuel / DEF onboard. Towing capacity, on the other hand, is the maximum weight the truck can tow behind it. It’s important to pick a truck with payload and towing capacities that align with your application needs.. 

4. Think About Fuel Efficiency

Fuel costs are a significant expense for any business that relies on trucks. Opting for fuel-efficient models like the T680 can help you save money in the long run. GreatWest Kenworth offers trucks equipped with advanced fuel-saving technologies, such as aerodynamic designs and efficient engines. When choosing a truck, pay attention to factors like L/100KM ratings to make an informed decision.

5. Reliability and Maintenance

A reliable truck requires minimal downtime due to maintenance and repairs. Look for trucks that are known for their durability and require fewer visits to the heavy equipment technician. GreatWest Kenworth is renowned for its durability and longevity, reducing downtime and maintenance costs. Investing in a truck that stands the test of time ensures uninterrupted operations and a healthy bottom line. GreatWest Kenworth understands that which is why we are the World’s Best.

Choosing the right Kenworth for your business needs is a decision that requires careful consideration and planning. It’s not just about picking any heavy-duty truck, it’s about choosing a partner that will contribute to your success and growth.
