General Motors and ACDelco have announced that they have expanded their range of parts and fluids in order to meet the growing demand from customers. General Motors said that products from the GM Genuine Parts and ACDelco ranges will be available more readily available. The newest parts and fluid have been designed so that independent shops have more incentive to use factory parts.
David Mestdagh, general director of global product development, GM Customer Care and Aftersales, said that the new parts will be added to a range that already has over 14,000 parts across 10 different product lines as part of the company’s aftermarket parts portfolio. The new parts and fluids include professional severe duty brake products, synthetic blend SN plus motor oils, hybrid and beam wiper blades and advantage bearings.
When it comes to brake products, they include caliper, pad and rotors for 2010 model year and newer Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks. GM and ACDelco said the rotors come with “S” grooves which can enhance pedal feel, especially while towing. The new synthetic oil blend has been developed with a view to preventing low-speed pre-ignition in turbocharged engines and reducing friction during cold starts.
The new wiper blades fit 10.6 million GM vehicles with 11 part numbers and 23 million GM vehicles with seven part numbers. The range of advantage bearings have been expanded to all makes and models dating back to 1942 model-year vehicles.
GM Genuine Parts and ACDelco will also offer professional air conditioning seal kits and professional air conditioning condensers with automatic transmission oil coolers.
