Hankook Tyre Chosen for Ford Mustang

Hankook Tyre has been selected as an original equipment (OE) supplier for the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang V6 and EcoBoost.

Both the V6 and 233kW 2.3-litre EcoBoost base level vehicles will be factory equipped with Hankook Tire’s Ventus S1 noble2 (H452), in 235/55R17 size, providing the ideal balance of all-season ability and ultra-high performance.

Providing a well-suited complement to the 2015 Ford Mustang, Hankook Tyre’s Ventus S1 noble2 adds to the dynamic driving experience and innovative features of the vehicle. Incorporating an asymmetric tread pattern, the tyre features a four channel rib design for efficient water evacuation and an advanced silica rubber compound to offer impressive wet handling, braking and lower rolling resistance. Additionally, a straight rib block design applied to the outer edge of the tyre’s contact patch helps to prevent unwanted road noise and increase cornering grip.

“We value our growing partnership with Ford and above all our unwavering commitment to one of our strategic markets in North America,” said Mr. Seung Hwa Suh, Vice Chairman & CEO at Hankook Tire. He also added: “Our new original equipment fitments proudly exhibit Hankook’s globally proven tyre quality and performance. Based on our technological leadership, we at Hankook Tire will continue to advance our position to become a global top-tier tyre company as a trusted tyre brand.”

In an array of OE supply deals, Hankook Tire has been expanding its partnership with Ford since 1999, on global vehicles such as the Ford Fiesta, Edge, Explorer, Flex, Taurus, Fusion, Mode, Transit and Kuga as well as Ford’s luxury brand, Lincoln. Based on this long-term partnership, Hankook Tire is enhancing its strong position worldwide as a global tyre brand with superior and cutting-edge tyre technology.

The Ford Mustang will launch in Australia near the end of 2015, with the choice of 5.0-litre V8 or 2.3-litre EcoBoost.
