Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is now fitting Kumho tyres to the new Jeep Renegade SUVs produced in its Melfi plant in Italy. The Kumho Crugen Premium KL33 has been approved as an original equipment tyre for the Renegade in sizes 215/60R17 100V XL and 225/55R18 98H. Kumho already delivers original equipment tyres to FCA for the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Fiat Freemont.
“Working in close co-operation with our client FCA, we have adjusted the Crugen Premium KL33 to the specific needs of the new Jeep Renegade,” commented Frank Gilsdorf, the engineer at the Kumho European Technical Centre (KETC) responsible for the contract. “This latest contract from FCA underlines the good level of co-operation that exists between our two companies and the consistently high quality of our tyres.”
