  • Exterior


    The rugged and durable C500 is a truck that gets work done, year after year. Designed with utility in mind, the C500 stands for uncompromised performance and durability. The melded aluminum, fiberglass, and steel cab structure ensures that your C500 is ready to handle any and all adverse conditions. As always, Kenworth offers a variety of exterior options to transform the C500 into the heavy duty, off-road champion that your drivers want to drive.

  • Interior


    As rugged as the exterior is, the new C500 features interior amenities that make driving the off-road warrior a pleasure. The day cab has been extended to provide extra room for the driver, including over two feet of cubic storage. In addition to the compact day cabs, Kenworth now offers the 38” and 42” sleeper options. The C500 combines industry-leading functionality and durability with improved comfort that drivers expect from a Kenworth product.

  • Performance


    The C500 has been, and always will be known for outstanding performance in all conditions. In order to make repairs and withstand the punishment of the most difficult jobs, Kenworth engineered an all brass and copper radiator that’s mounted to the frame, and situated the engine high on the frame for easy access. The C500 comes equipped with high performance Cummins or PACCAR engines that will match its exterior toughness. Kenworth offers several custom options, including high capacity radiators and 150,000 pound steel springs, to make your C500 the most versatile and high performance heavy duty truck.
