The 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer will ship with Hankook all-season tires on all trim levels.
General Motors says standard 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer models will come equipped with Hankook Kinergy GT all-season tires, while the off-road inspired Trailblazer Activ will ship with more rugged Hankook Dynapro AT2 rubber. The sport-inspired Trailblazer RS model, meanwhile, will come with slightly larger Hankook Kinergy 225/55R18H all-seasons.
Hankook says the Kinergy GT tire, which will be found on the most common Chevrolet Trailblazer models, “is the perfect match for the crossover, being designed for driving on different terrains and a number of road conditions.” The Kinergy GT is a low rolling resistance tire that is also capable in winter months thanks to its lateral groove tread design, the manufacturer also says.
The Hankook Dynapro AT2, meanwhile, is described as ” an ideal complement,” to the more Rugged Trailblazer Activ’s style thanks to its aggressive tread design. Hankook says the Dynapro AT2 is intended to provide “a blend of off-road traction and (on-road) driving capabilities.”
“Kinergy GT, an all-time favorite of so many carmakers, has once again been chosen to complement Chevrolet’s exciting addition to its SUV family,” Hyunjun Cho, head of Hankook’s tire division, said in a prepared statement. “We are happy to continue our long-term partnership with Chevrolet and will be working with them to develop additional products for their vehicles.”
GM has a close working relationship with Hankook. It first partnered with the tire company back in 2002 and continues to offer Hankook tires on several products today, including the Chevrolet Malibu, Chevrolet Equinox, GMC Terrain and Buick Encore, among others.
Pricing for the 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer starts at $19,995 in the United States.
