RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (Dec. 1, 2016) — Vehicle maker FCA Group has selected the Falken Wildpeak H/T01A 2 light truck/SUV tire as the standard OE fitment on the four-wheel-drive 2017 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk SUV.
The tire — in size 215/65R17 — is fitted to the Trailhawk at FCA Group's car assembly plant in Melfi, Italy. It features a shoulder specially designed to suit the Trailhawk, according to Falken-brand owner Sumitomo Rubber North America Inc., for stability and optimal comfort.
The Trailhawk model delivers “best-in-class” 4x4 trail-rated capability, FCA claims, with its proprietary Jeep Active Drive Low, which includes 20:1 crawl ratio and Jeep Selec-Terrain system.
The Renegade SUV is built on the same chassis platform as the Fiat 500X four-wheel-drive version.
