NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Fiat Chrysler Automobiles L.L.C. has selected the Bridgestone Ecopia H/L 422 Plus as an OE fitment on select 2016 Dodge Durango models.
The Ecopia H/L 422 Plus, a rolling-resistance-optimized product, is standard equipment on three versions of the Durango—R/T All-Wheel Drive, R/T Rear-Wheel Drive and Citadel All-Wheel Drive—and optional on the SXT and Limited models in size 265/50R20, according to Bridgestone Americas.
“The Ecopia H/L 422 Plus is designed to blend year-round performance with fuel economy and low rolling resistance, making it an excellent fitment for the 2016 Dodge Durango,” said Mike Martini, Bridgestone Americas president, original equipment, U.S. and Canada Consumer Tire Sales., who added that “sustainability and fuel efficiency are important considerations” for drivers today.”
Earlier, Pirelli Tire North America disclosed FCA had selected its Scorpion Verde All Season tire as OE on Durangos sold in North America and the Scorpion Verde for export models of the same vehicles.
