Kenworth designed the T2000 truck based on extensive input it solicited from drivers, owner/operators, fleet owners and maintenance managers beginning in 1992. The company introduced the truck in 1997. Kenworth developed some of the truck features in response to drivers' feedback, such as the need to see more of their surroundings so that they can react faster under threatening circumstances.
