Hankook Tire is set to provide the Dynapro HP2 for the 2022 INFINITI QX60. The tire is available in size 255/50R20 and will be produced at the company’s plant in Clarksville, Tennessee.
The Dynapro HP2 optimizes comfort and offers a quiet ride that’s perfect for a new luxury SUV. It’s an all-season tire with a high-density polyester carcass that enhances handling response and steering stability.
Hankook included a high-loading silica compound that improves fuel efficiency and lowers rolling resistance. Noise reduction has been added to make the ride more comfortable, setting the standard for premium SUV offers.
The 2022 INFINITI QX60 is a daily commuter that boasts seven seats as standard. It’s a family SUV that comes with several impressive features, including a seven-speed automatic transmission.
The transmission allows for responsive acceleration. The upper gears can be used to cruise longer at lower RPMs. The INFINITI Intelligent All-Wheel Drive automatically sends power to the front wheels to enhance traction and adapt to road conditions.
It is available in all trims. When combined with the high-performance Dynapro HP2 tires, it offers improved wet and dry handling.
“As leaders in premium automotive technology, this pairing is an obvious choice that provides excellent value for drivers of the new INFINITI QX60,” said Jeongho Park, Executive Vice President and Director of OE Division at Hankook Tire. “We will expand the OE portfolio for SUVs and continue to be committed through improvements in technology and quality assurance of our products.”
“To serve the continually growing SUV segment, Hankook Tire is upgrading a lineup of tires with exceptional performance for SUVs,” said Moonhwa Hong, Senior Vice President of the OE Development Department at Hankook Tire. “For Dynapro HP2 in specific, we spent a lot of time and effort to minimize noise from tires so that drivers can enjoy the most powerful, yet quiet ride.”
The team at Hankook invests heavily in Research and Development to achieve industry-leading products for the OEM market. It continues to do so in its growth strategy for SUVs. The manufacturer currently provides tires for 46 carmakers including Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Ford, GM, Audi, and BMW.
