Among those on the list are No. 1 Ford F-Series pickup trucks, No. 2 Chevrolet Silverado-C/K pickup, No. 3 Ford Explorer and No. 4 Toyota Camry.
“It's no accident that we're specified as original equipment on the top vehicles,” said Bryan Kinnamon, Goodyear vice president, original equipment sales, North America. “Consider our customer relationships and technology capabilities that result in technical approvals and order fulfillment responsiveness.”
