Robert Bosch LLC has announced the addition of 21 new SKUs in the month of April to its aftermarket product lineup. Additions were made to the braking and rotating machine product lines.
Bosch Brake Pads
One new SKU has been added to the Bosch QuietCast Brake Pad product line, extending coverage for late-model domestic vehicles. The new Bosch QuietCast Brake Pad set SKU includes a hardware kit. All Bosch premium QuietCast Disc Brake Pads feature friction formulas specific to the application – semi-metallic, NAO or copper-free ceramic – and include synthetic lubricant for all applications.
Two new SKUs have been added to the Bosch Blue Brake Pad product line, featuring OE-style, multi-layer shims that provide superior noise dampening characteristics. They’re designed to deliver quality and performance and are ideal for the shop owner who is a “generalist” and is looking to provide customers with the best value. Bosch Blue Brake Pads come towel-wrapped on select applications for added protection and value.
The new Bosch QuietCast Brake Pad and Bosch Blue Brake Pad SKUs extend coverage to more than 569,000 late-model domestic vehicles in operation, including the 2015-’16 Ford Expedition, 2015-’16 Ford F-150 and 2015-’16 Lincoln Navigator.
Bosch Rotating Machines
The Bosch Rotating Machines group has added 18 new SKUs for remanufactured alternators and starters, covering late-model domestic, Asian and European vehicles that are coming out of their warranty periods and are prime candidates for service in the aftermarket, says the company. The new SKUs extend coverage to 5.9 million vehicles in operation in the U.S.
Fifteen new SKUs for remanufactured alternators are now available for models including the 2013-’16 Ford Escape L4 Cyl. 2.0L, 2010-’15 Nissan Rogue L4 Cyl. 2.5L, 2013-’14 Ford F-150 V8 Cyl. 5.0L (225 AMPS) and more. Three new SKUs for remanufactured starters cover vehicles including the 2007-’12 Hyundai Elantra L4 Cyl. 2.0L, 2010-’11 Kia Soul L4 Cyl. 2.0L, 2008-’10 Infiniti G37 V6 Cyl. 3.7L and more.
