ACDelco Expands Popular Advantage Friction Lineup

GRAND BLANC, Mich. — Coverage of ACDelco’s Advantage line of premium entry-level brake pads and shoes has grown to 80 percent of the North American passenger car and light truck market with the release of 54 new part numbers.  The products are available for order now via EPIC, and from the ACDelco eCatalog in July. Currently, the ACDelco Advantage friction lineup features more than 280 part numbers. An additional rollout will be announced later, according to ACDelco. ACDelco Advantage aftermarket friction products and rotors offer fit, form and function for most makes and models similar to original equipment offerings, the company says. Advantage brake pads are:

•Chamfered, slotted and shimmed to provide similar fit, form and function to the OE service part

•Sold with hardware kits when applicable, a feature for which many competitors charge extra, according to ACDelco

•Tested to SAE J2430 and J2784 using BEEP analysis to ensure consistent braking

•Differentiated from other ACDelco brake offerings with a grey finish

•Covered by a 12-month, 12,000-mile warranty that beats the 30-day warranty provided by many competitors, the company says

The ACDelco family of brake products consists of:

•ACDelco Advantage – Premium entry-level aftermarket quality at a more economical price;

•ACDelco Professional DuraStop – Premium aftermarket quality with premium features associated with original equipment brake products; and

•ACDelco Original Equipment Service – These products deliver uncompromising brake service.
