Standard Motor Products (SMP) has released 276 new part numbers in its October new-number announcement.
This most recent release provides new coverage in 113 distinct product categories and 118 part numbers for 2022, 2023 and 2024 model-year vehicles.
Standard and Four Seasons continue to expand their programs for hybrid and electric vehicles.
Standard’s latest additions include park-assist sensors for the 2022-2017 Toyota Prius Prime and canister purge solenoids for the 2022-18 Lexus ES300h.
Four Seasons released hose assemblies for hybrid vehicles such as the 2022-2018 Honda Accord and electric vehicles including the 2021-2017 Chevrolet Bolt. Brushless blower motors have been introduced for the 2022-2016 Mercedes C-Class Hybrid, and evaporators are now available for the 2022-2020 Ford Interceptor Utility and Lincoln Aviator Hybrid.
Internal combustion engines are evolving to improve fuel economy while reducing emissions, and Standard is continually expanding popular categories for these vehicles. The Standard variable valve timing (VVT) program has grown with the introduction of new solenoids, sprockets and oil-control valves, while turbochargers and related components have been released for General Motors, Nissan, Ford and Chrysler vehicles.
Emission-control products including fuel-vapor canisters, EGR tubes, EGR valves, engine crankcase breather hoses and PCV valves also were added.
Powertrain-neutral categories such as active grille shutters and park-assist sensors represent repair opportunities that didn’t exist a few years ago. Active grille shutter assemblies have been introduced for new Ford and Chrysler applications, and active grille shutter actuators are new for Ford vehicles through model-year 2022. Fourteen park-assist sensors have been added covering popular vehicles such as the 2021-2020 Cadillac CT5 and 2021-2014 Infiniti Q50. Standard also has introduced 18 new ABS speed sensors covering 5 million vehicles.
