Toyo is OE on Dodge Journey
Toyo Tire & Rubber Co. Ltd. announces that the Toyo A23 tire has been selected as the original equipment tire for FCA US LLC (FCA) Dodge Journey crossover utility vehicle (CUV). This is the first time that a Toyo tire has been used as the original equipment tire on a FCA North American-made vehicle.
When mated to the Dodge Journey, the Toyo A23 combines quiet and ride comfort with excellent fuel economy, while also delivering snowy road handling as an all-season tire. The vehicle will be outfitted with P225/55R19 99V tires. Delivery began in November 2014.
In its new mid-term business plan (mid-term 2014), the company says it has committed to further bolstering the positioning of its tires for SUVs, CUVs and pickup trucks.
FCA US LLC is the new name of Chrysler Group LLC. The name change was effective Dec. 15, 2014, and follows the naming convention of the global parent company, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. (FCA).
