Kenworth Truck Company announced that it will extend a successful rebate program with Landstar System, Inc. through 2007.

The program offers a $1,000 rebate on qualifying purchases of new Kenworth sleeper trucks to independent contractors who provide Landstar with transportation capacity under exclusive lease arrangements. Kenworth Class 8 trucks eligible include the Kenworth T660, T800 and W900 models with 72-inch AeroCab® or 86-inch Studio AeroCab sleeper, and the Kenworth T2000 model with 75-inch AERODYNE® sleeper.

Under the program, purchasers negotiate their best deal at the Kenworth dealer of their choice and then send copies of the paperwork to Landstar. Upon confirmation of eligibility by Landstar, Kenworth Truck Company will send the $1,000 rebate directly to the purchaser.

"Owner-operators are extremely loyal to the World's Best trucks, including the fuel-efficient and aerodynamic Kenworth T660 and T2000, versatile T800, and premium W900," said Gary Moore, Kenworth assistant general manager for marketing and sales. "We appreciate their support and Kenworth is pleased to extend this $1,000 rebate through 2007 in cooperation with Landstar."

Moore noted that Kenworth is the recipient of three 2006 J.D. Power and Associates awards for Highest in Customer Satisfaction for Over the Road Segment and Pickup and Delivery Segment Class 8 Trucks, and for Heavy Duty Dealer Service.*
