Hankook to supply Kinergy GT tires for 2020 Ford Explorer

LinkedIn +

The all-new 2020 Ford Explorer will be factory fitted with Hankook’s grand touring all-season Kinergy GT tire in size 255/65 R18. As America’s best-selling SUV, the Explorer has undergone a complete redesign inside and out.

Key elements of the tire’s tread include its four-channel design, which has been combined with an optimized lateral groove and chamfer sipe arrangement – design features that are said to provide exceptional grip in both wet and snowy driving conditions.

Beneath the tread lies the core of the Kinergy tire’s structure – high-grip silica compounds. A multi-layered carcass, composed of equilibrium carcass lines, along with jointless and supplemental reinforcement belts, all contribute to smooth and comfortable ride both on- and off-road.

“We are thrilled to continue our relationship with Ford, a brand synonymous with adventure and durability. The Kinergy GT provides drivers of the new 2020 Ford Explorer with outstanding performance in all weather conditions. We’re proud to continue to support Ford with quality tires for their vehicles,” said Hyunjun Cho, head of the OE division at Hankook.
