Peterbilt Vs Kenworth: Which Side Are You On?

0
There are many things that can set people apart based on their preferences, such as if they’re a dog or cat person, if they like Coke or Pepsi, if the best chicken comes from Bojangles or KFC, and more.
 
Sometimes differences may start off small, like if you like Chevy and for some reason your buddy prefers Ford. Then things could quickly escalate into the Peterbilt vs Kenworth battle, a rivalry like no other!

Peterbilt and Kenworth, like Macks, are classic examples of all American steel and power that have been around for decades. Peterbilt got its start in 1939 with the goal of providing quality logging trucks that could get the job done and Kenworth was founded in 1912 to build rugged, high performing logging trucks as well.

So, no matter what side you’re on appreciate both trucks with their dedication to the trucking industry in American history, we don’t know where the industry would be without them. 

The Peterbilt Vs Kenworth Battle


Peterbilt trucks are seen as high quality, classy trucks. They have been referred to as the Harley Davidsons or Cadillacs of the trucking industry. Some drivers simply can’t get enough of that prideful ‘I worked for this Peterbilt and got it’ feeling with all of its pretty chrome and glory.

Kenworths are often viewed as the more rugged truck. It’s a hard workingman’s truck that also offers a high level of comfort, quality, and advancements at a more economical value. They get the job done with high performing parts under the hood.

For the truckers who need all the bells and whistles then Peterbilt is the better options. Everything about the Peterbilt can be customized to suit your needs. You can design the interior feel like your home away from home.
 
Peterbilts are often seen as more spacious, more comfortable highway vehicles, but the Kenworth’s AeroCab is extremely comfortable and spacious. Plus, Kenworths are customizable too.

What happens if your Peterbilt is too big though? You need to be able to climb in and out of it easily and reach the clutch. Kenworth is seen as the smaller truck, but it provides more than enough space to comfortably reach the clutch and stretch out.

Are Kenworths the truck of the future? Some people believe so with the innovative technology included in the dash. The Kenworth’s built in navigation systems are better than your smartphone’s. Also, if your truck has a problem you can take it to any dealership in the country to run web-based diagnostic tools from an app to locate the issue and have it quickly repaired.

That doesn’t mean Peterbilt is stuck in the stone ages though. They have advanced safety testing and include a DPA (Driver Performance Assistant) to give you live feedback on how to improve your driving skills. They also have some fuel efficient and hybrid electric engines up their sleeves.

When It Comes To Buying Your Truck


Buying a rig is a huge, expensive commitment. Don’t make your choice based off of the Peterbilt and Kenworth battle. Test out each truck to see which one works best for you and your business. Heck, you could even find out that a Volvo is the best option for you.

ExpressTruckTax Salutes our Trucking Veterans on Veterans Day

0
Today, November 11th, marks the day we celebrate all our nation’s veterans, past and present. We here at ExpressTruckTax acknowledge the great debt we all owe to our veterans for their honorable service, and that our great nation would not exist without their courage and dedication.

Why Veterans Make Great Truckers

These attributes, in addition to the high-quality training and experience veterans acquire during active duty, translate into a skill set well-suited to the trucking industry. Discipline, initiative, planning, and even experience driving big rigs are all valuable assets vets bring to the table when it comes to trucking.

Thank You Trucking Veterans

So we want to extend a special thank you to all you members of the Trucking Nation who are also veterans. You’ve served us twice, and continue to serve every day. Not only have you secured our freedom, you’ve kept the goods we all need every day within easy reach. You keep our country moving. And you continue to sacrifice for us each time you’re on the road, working long hours, living in your rigs, and being away from family and friends. There’s no way we can thank you enough.


Here’s a little gift from all of us here at ExpressTruckTax to every one of our veterans out there:




So here’s to all our vets, those who are still with us, and those we’ve lost. You have our respect and awe.

We’re here at ExpressTruckTax, available to take your calls and to chat with you, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Please feel free to share any questions or concerns you may have. And we’re always available via email at support@expresstrucktax.com. Support is available in both English and Spanish.

If you’re not a vet, make sure you thank one today. And if you're a trucker vet, share your story and pictures of your rig! Just Tweet us @ExpressTruckTax using #RigWhiteAndBlue, and we'll share your story with the Trucking Nation!

And to all our veterans: you have our eternal gratitude. Thanks, vets!
