Equipped with twin-tube shocks, skid plates and a locking differential, the pickup trucks' AT4 off-road package is ideal for the aggressive tread design of the Dynapro MT2, Hankook said. Both trucks are equipped with trailer tech options, such as virtual rear camera view capabilities and lane departure warnings that extend the length of a hooked-up trailer.
The Dynapro MT2, which is designed with off-road traction and on-road durability in mind, features a connected shoulder tread, V-shape shoulder scallops and stone-ejecting technology that provides additional rigidity, traction and protection against punctures, Hankook said.
Engineered with 3D simulation software, the Dynapro MT2 has an optimized "terrain-strike" tread design and a high turn-up, three-ply sidewall that provides added protection against off-road abrasions while also maintaining on-road comfort and functionality.
"The Dynapro MT2 is equipped with the most aggressive tread pattern that we have ever offered," Kijong Kil, vice president of Hankook's Central R&D Center in Seoul, South Korea.
"We developed the Dynapro MT2 with a new split mold technology and 3D simulation software that allows for a more aggressive tread with a seamless sidewall that helps reduce noise and improve durability."
"When designing the Dynapro MT2, we took special care in its steering functionality and driving comfort," Hyunjun Cho, head of Hankook Tire OE Division, said. "As a result, though it is an off-road tire, its on-road performance is quite pleasant."
The Dynapro MT2 earned a "Red Dot" design award earlier this year from the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen (DZNW) of Germany, based on its innovation, functionality, durability and ecological compatibility, Hankook said. The MT2 was one of three Hankook tires so honored, along with the Dynapro AT2 and I*Pike RS2 winter tires.
