The new location, known as CIT Kenworth of Southern Illinois, is located on 8 acres at the new Troy exit off U.S. Interstate 55. This interstate frontage location provides easy access to I-70 and I-270.
The opening of the new dealership is part of a two-phase project that began last year with the opening of a parts-only location 12 miles west of the new facility.
The 33,000-square-foot dealership features 16 service bays. The parts department includes a 10,000-square-foot warehouse and 1,750 square feet of display area. A comfortable drivers lounge offers a place for drivers to relax or catch up on paperwork while waiting for their trucks to be serviced.
CIT Group Inc. operates eight other Kenworth dealerships including in Bensenville, Champaign, Joliet, Morton, Normal, Peru, Rockford and Springfield.
