NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 25, 2013) — Bridgestone Americas' Firestone-brand Destination LE2 and Destination A/T tires will be original equipment on the 2014 Jeep Cherokee.
Bridgestone said Jeep "raises the bar with legendary benchmark 4x4 capability, world-class on-road dynamics, fuel economy of more than 30 mpg, modern and progressive new design, legendary craftsmanship and an array of advanced safety and technology features."
"Nothing says ready-to-go like a Jeep — and the new Cherokee is a true Jeep. We're thrilled to make Firestone tires a part of this fantastic vehicle," said Michael Martini, president, original equipment, U.S. and Canada consumer tire sales division for Bridgestone Americas.
"The Destination LE2 and A/T perfectly complement the Jeep Cherokee. While the Destination LE2 provides year-round performance and a quiet, comfortable ride, the Destination A/T offers all-terrain performance off road, while still delivering a smooth and quiet ride for the daily commute," he added.
Sizes of the tires include:
• Destination LE2 tires in size 225/60R17 99T, standard equipment on front-wheel drive Sport and Latitude trim levels.
• Destination LE2 tires in size 225/65R17 102T, standard equipment on 4x4 Sport and Latitude trim levels.
• Destination A/T tires in size P245/65R17 105T, standard equipment on 4x4 Trailhawk trim levels.
Bridgestone said the 2014 Jeep Cherokees are built at the Toledo North Assembly Plant in Toledo, Ohio, and will be available to consumers in the third quarter of this year.
