Hankook Tire announced it will supply Chevrolet’s All-New 2021 Trailblazer with its all-season tire, Kinergy GT (H436).
The Trailblazer RS will be equipped with Kinergy 225/55R18H, and for the ACTIV trim level, Hankook will supply the Dynapro AT2 (RF11) 225/60R17H. Kinergy 215/65R16H tires will be available on the Trailblazer base model.
As an all-season tire, Kinergy GT is the perfect match for the crossover, being designed for driving on different terrains and a number of road conditions.
Redesigned inside and out for 2021, the Chevy Trailblazer sports an aggressive front grill, tiered headlights and two-toned roofline for RS and ACTIV trims. The addition of Hankook’s Dynapro AT2 is an ideal complement to the Trailblazer’s style and offers drivers a blend of off-road traction and driving capabilities.
Head of Hankook Tire OE Division Hyunjun Cho said, “Kinergy GT, an all-time favorite of so many carmakers, has once again been chosen to complement Chevrolet’s exciting addition to its SUV family. We are happy to continue our long-term partnership with Chevrolet and will be working with them to develop additional products for their vehicles.”
Head of Hankook Tire America Technical Center Robert Wheeler said, “The Trailblazer is designed to provide driving performance for varying active lifestyles. To match this range of driving needs we teamed with General Motors to develop these tires by applying our virtual performance prediction capabilities in collaboration with our designers and engineers in materials, testing and manufacturing.”
