New York, NY /PRNewswire/ - Standard Motor Products, Inc. (SMP) is pleased to announce the expansion of additional categories covering import and domestic vehicles with ICE, hybrid, and electric powertrains. As the car parc evolves, Standard® remains dedicated to introducing and expanding new product lines to provide technicians with the parts needed to do the job right, regardless of powertrain. When OE fails, technicians trust Standard® to deliver precision components that keep a wide variety of systems operating as designed.

Standard's new Parking Brake Actuator program has expanded rapidly, with the addition of several new numbers in recent months. More new vehicles are using electronic parking brakes, replacing the cable design found in older vehicles. This new and growing category is powertrain-neutral, meaning it can be found on gasoline, diesel, hybrid and electric vehicles. Recently released numbers cover popular vehicles like the 2023-18 Ford F-150, including the Lightning, 2024-17 Cadillac XT5, and 2021-14 Jeep Cherokee. Each Parking Brake Actuator also includes hardware and an O-ring for proper and easy installation.

Vacuum pumps provide vacuum assistance to several different systems, including the brakes. These pumps are found on ICE, hybrid, and electric vehicles. Each Standard® Vacuum Pump undergoes 100% pressure testing to prevent leaks and features high-quality O-rings and seals to prevent leaks and maintain proper vacuum pressure. Numerous Vacuum Pumps have been released this year covering popular vehicles like the 2022-17 Ford F-Series Super Duty, 2022-17 Dodge Challenger, and 2023-18 Toyota Camry.

Additionally, Standard® has expanded its Emission Control program with a line of Air Pumps, featuring 35 SKUs covering nearly 20 million import and domestic vehicles. Numerous numbers have been released this year covering popular vehicles like the 2021-19 Volkswagen Jetta, 2015-14 Chevrolet Impala, and 2020-17 Audi A3. Standard's Transfer Case program has also grown with sixteen new numbers this year, offering new coverage for applications like the 2022-15 Jeep Renegade, 2021-18 Ford Expedition and 2022-15 Toyota Tacoma. The Standard® Power Sunroof Motor program has also seen growth, with coverage added for 7.4 million import and domestic vehicles.
