Goodyear tires chosen as original equipment for the new fully-electric Jeep Avenger
A range of Goodyear tires have been selected as original equipment (OE) fitments by Jeep® for the all-new Avenger. The approved fitments include tires from Goodyear’s summer and all-season ranges, to complement the vehicle's advanced capabilities.
Goodyear’s tires will be fitted as standard to the highly anticipated Jeep Avenger, which is the first Jeep vehicle which comes in an all-electric version. This significant development aligns perfectly with Goodyear's ‘ready for EV’ strategy, showcasing the company's commitment to providing innovative tire solutions for electric vehicles and the future of sustainable transport. The Jeep Avenger is available to buyers in all European markets as a petrol model, too.
The Jeep Avenger, which has been commercially launched in June 2023, has already sparked tremendous excitement within the automotive industry. By launching it in an all-electric version, Jeep’s commitment to sustainable mobility, as well as its outstanding features and forward-looking design, have earned the distinguished title of ‘European Car of the Year 2023’, the first time ever for a Jeep vehicle. This prestigious accolade further emphasizes the Avenger's exceptional performance and solidifies its position as a game-changer in the B-SUV electric vehicle segment.
Goodyear boasts an exceptional line-up of tires that will equip the Jeep Avenger, including the renowned Vector 4Seasons Gen-3, EfficientGrip Performance 2, and EfficientGrip 2 SUV models. These tire models showcase innovative technology which not only help to reduce noise emissions but also optimize rolling resistance, increasing their sustainability, and making them an excellent choice for electric vehicles. With tire sizes that cover up the Avenger's production range, Goodyear provides an exceptional fit for the remarkable capabilities of this vehicle.
From Goodyear’s all-season range, the Vector 4Seasons Gen-3 has been recognized for its excellent performance in wet conditions, whilst also offering benefits such as shorter dry braking and improved dry handling, making it suitable for use all year round in both dry and wet conditions. The Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance 2 and EfficientGrip 2 SUV are both summer tires which feature a flexible tread that helps to reduce fractures caused by rough road surfaces, resulting in excellent durability. Additionally, the Efficient Grip Performance 2 offers at least 20% more mileage than the next best-tested competitor1, resulting in a longer life for the tire.
Hans Vrijsen, Managing Director Consumer OE, Goodyear EMEA commented: “Our range of summer and all-season tires makes us uniquely positioned to be selected to supply the ground-breaking Jeep Avenger, the first ever Jeep vehicle to be launched with an all-electric version. Our tires perfectly complement the Avenger's advanced capabilities, showcasing our commitment to delivering innovative solutions for electric vehicles. Together, we are shaping the future of sustainable mobility."
