C’est tout, Montreal Kenworth!
That’s all for now, at Montreal Kenworth!
We had an amazing time at the Kenworth Montreal facility this past Friday. What an exceptional turnout we had, and we really felt at home with this group. Despite my language barrier, we pulled off an amazing display for the T680’s. The Montreal crew was extremely knowledgeable about the T680, so my job was easy. They definitely did their homework, and it showed. If you want a one on one opportunity to see the trucks and converse with the Kenworth sales and engineering groups, come to one of these events. Just look at all the yellow shirts here to enlighten you!
If you’re in the Montreal area and are interested in the T680 (and you should be), Kenworth Montreal won’t let you down. I was unable to converse directly with many customers, but it was their body language that told the story. Torrential downpours couldn’t silence the voice of the T680’s to those customers that visited the event, and we had a steady crowd all afternoon. We ran the event until 8:00pm with continued interest until the very last minute.
Montreal was a great event for me because it affirmed my belief that the T680 will appeal to customers who otherwise aren’t Kenworth owners. This truck is an amazing accomplishment for Kenworth, and the more owner operators and fleet representatives I speak with, the more I’m convinced that the hard work has paid off. If you find can find a fault, it’s been addressed, and most aren’t shy to acknowledge this. As a former Kenworth Engineer, it makes me very proud.
Kenworth Montreal was ready to rock, with a fully catered event, including turkey and prime rib from a wood fired rotisserie, a 40’x60’ support tent and a row of decked out dump and plow trucks to complement the T680’s.
One of the great benefits to owning a Kenworth is the vast group of dealerships and service centers available to you, and Kenworth Montreal is a great example of that. With a full service facility, with sales, repair, detailing and a full body shop, the Montreal location has it all. This is really a first class operation.
Kenworth Montreal brought out a large number of their “stock” trucks, including these beautiful dual steer axle dump trucks and a very cool T800 snow plow. These trucks really fit the bill up here in the Canadian winters, and have stood up to the grueling conditions for generations.
I want to thank the entire Kenworth Montreal group for a very successful event. We had a great turnout, despite the weather. I look forward to my next opportunity to visit Michel Labelle and company.
