Michelin North America is launching a new all-season, heavy-duty tire for light truck applications: the Michelin Agilis CrossClimate tire.

This tire was designed specifically for ¾- and 1-ton pick-up trucks and vans used in commercial applications, as well as for European van platforms that have become increasingly popular in the North American market.

“Today’s local fleets demand a product to meet their specific commercial needs, and the Agilis CrossClimate tire is our most durable tire for heavy-duty light trucks and for lighter commercial applications,” said Adam Murphy, vice president of B2B marketing for Michelin. “Through engineering and innovation, Michelin has developed a tire that lasts longer under heavy loads, and also offers shorter wet-stopping distances and better snow traction than other leading competitive commercial tires.”

These vehicles are seen increasingly in applications such as:

  • Local and parcel delivery fleets
  • Food and beverage and temperature-controlled vehicles
  • Telecom and utility fleets
  • Trades, including landscaping, plumbing, electrical, HVAC, pest control and other trade fleets
The new MICHELIN® Agilis® CrossClimate® tire for today’s small-business owners and commercial fleets. Responding to the wide-ranging demands for last-mile delivery and urban or suburban commercial uses, this tire was designed specifically for ¾- and 1-ton pick-up trucks and vans used in commercial applications, as well as for European van platforms that have become increasingly popular in the North American market.

Available starting April 1 in the United States and Canada, the Michelin Agilis CrossClimate tire is available in 16 light-truck (LT) sizes for passenger-vehicle platforms such as the Ford F-Series, Ford Econoline, Chevrolet Express, Chevrolet Silverado, GMC Sierra, Dodge Ram 2500 and Mercedes Sprinter. Five C-Metric sizes are available for lighter-duty commercial vehicles such as the Ford Transit, Ram ProMaster and Nissan NV200. Responding to the wide-ranging demands for these vehicles in last-mile delivery and urban or suburban commercial uses, the Michelin Agilis CrossClimate features these exceptional benefits:

  • Durability over extended mileage
  • Towing and hauling heavy loads with confidence
  • Improved protection from impacts, punctures and aggressions
  • All-weather (or all-season) performance for year-round rough work conditions, as well as wet braking in high-stress applications
