DETROIT—Fiat Chrysler Automobiles L.L.C. has selected the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season tire as an original equipment fitment for 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs sold in North America, and the Scorpion Verde for export models of the same vehicles.
“This (selection) continues our focus on investing and catering to local market needs in North America with our quality product range,” said Pierluigi Dinelli, Pirelli Tire North America Inc. CEO and chairman. “We are very happy to be able to offer our customer base these latest additions.”
The Verde All Season fitment size for both the Grand Cherokee and Durango is 265/50R20 107V, Pirelli said, while the Verde fitment for export models is 265/60R18 110H.
Pirelli said the Verde's “green performance capabilities” complement FCA's efforts at improving fuel economy and reducing tailpipe emissions for the Grand Cherokee and Durango.
