Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC (BATO) has added a 13-size expansion to its Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia tire line. The line launched in early 2010 with seven sizes, and was expanded in March, 2011.
BATO says the Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia was engineered for the cost- and environment-conscious CUV, SUV and light truck owners. In recent testing, the Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia showed a 42% improvement in rolling efficiency over a conventional Bridgestone tire, which contributes to both improved fuel economy and reduced carbon emissions.
“At Bridgestone Americas, we believe that regardless of the type of vehicle you choose to drive, you should be able to save a little at the pump and make a difference in helping create a cleaner environment for future generations to enjoy,” said Larry Magee, president, Consumer Tire U.S. & Canada, BATO. “The Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia exemplifies our latest efforts to help reduce the environmental impact of our light truck products, and is yet another step in our ongoing mission to improve the overall environmental performance of our products.”
