Lonestar

  • Lonestar is a heavy truck when compared to T660. This might, however, be a good thing when driving in bad weather or strong wind.
  • Engine is difficult to access. It is set far in the back. Important for those who plan on working on it by themselves as servicing is not easy.
  • Intake pipes might come apart between the engine and the air cleaner. Therefore, engine gets dirty air. 
  • Air cleaners are expensive
  • Parts might be a problem
  • Looks better than Kenworth

Kenworth

  • Aero-efficient
  • More manuverable
  • Apparently, PACCAR is better quality
  • Parts available everywhere
  • Apparently, more comfortable than the Lonestar
