The last test drive I did in 2018 was Kenworth's W990, the successor-in-waiting to the W900L. We went to Phoenix to film an Ultimate Test Drive video and put about 300 miles on the truck in the mountains east of the city. It's a "Large Car" in every sense of the word, but it rides and handles splendidly. It will win its share of hearts when we get used to its contemporary styling.
