Goodyear announced that it has been chosen by Jaguar to supply original equipment tyres for the Jaguar E-PACE, the medium-sized SUV of the British vehicle manufacturer.
Goodyear will supply Jaguar’s new SUV with Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV and Eagle F1 Asymmetric SUV All-Terrain, both carrying the distinctive “JLR” marking, as a sign of Jaguar Land Rover’s approval. The tyres have been developed by Goodyear engineers to meet the manufacturer’s specific requirements on low rolling resistance, low weight and good off-road performance and have been homologated as original equipment.
Goodyear provided Class A RRC (Rolling Resistance Coefficient) for 3 of the 6 sizes, while providing 2 sizes with the Goodyear SoundComfort technology, a Foam-in-Tyre solution that reduces interior car noise levels by up to 50%.
The Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV is an Ultra-High-Performance tyre specifically developed for SUVs, and is the latest model in the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric range. It focuses on optimised braking and handling in all conditions.
The Eagle F1 Asymmetric SUV AT is a more off-road oriented version of the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV. The tyre is specifically designed for Jaguar and needed wider grooves for increased grip in off-road conditions and deeper blades for a better winter performance.
“Designing and engineering original equipment for new Jaguar Land Rover models shows once again Goodyear’s capability to understand and implement the requirements of premium vehicle manufacturers,” said Nick Harley, Goodyear’s Managing Director OE Consumer EMEA. “The E-PACE is the latest of Jaguar premium SUV to be equipped by Goodyear, showing that this long-lasting supply continues to deliver new successful solutions. Goodyear will continue to deliver the ultimate driving experience, providing Jaguar drivers with performance, comfort and safety in all conditions”.
