Dorman Launches 400+ New Motor Vehicle Repair Solutions, Rapidly Expanding Coverage for SUVs, EVs and Heavy-Duty Trucks
14 Outubro 2022 - 11:20AM
Dorman Products, Inc. (NASDAQ:DORM) is announcing the release of
more than 400 new motor vehicle parts, almost half of which are
first-to-the-aftermarket exclusives. The new products join a
growing catalog of 118,000+ aftermarket solutions that advance
Dorman’s mission of giving repair professionals and owners greater
freedom to fix passenger, commercial, and recreational vehicles
with internal combustion, hybrid, and electric powertrains.
The company’s roster of innovative Dorman® OE FIX™ repair
solutions is also growing by eighteen new products designed to help
save time, save money, or increase reliability. This month features
an OE FIX upgraded aluminum thermostat housing assembly
(902-3035HP) engineered to match the fit and function of the
original equipment plastic housing on more than one million
2011-2022 Chrysler 300, Dodge Challenger, and Dodge Charger models
on the road today. The new design’s aluminum construction better
withstands underhood temperature extremes, resists corrosion, helps
prevent future leaks, and provides increased coolant system
protection. Like many OE FIX solutions, the concept for the
improved housing originated with Dorman’s Ideation Team, a North
American grassroots network composed of thousands of service
technicians, retail counter staff, and fleet managers.
Dorman already offers the largest selection in the aftermarket
of direct replacements for failure-prone factory turbocharger
accessories, offering 500+ repair solutions including cartridges,
boost solenoids, exhaust clamps and more. Reinforcing that
aftermarket-leading position, the company is introducing six new
high-demand turbo components. They include oil return and feed
lines (667-533 and 667-537), EGR cooler, Engine air intake, and
diesel fuel injector hoses (626-703, 696-324, and 904-952), and an
evaporative emissions (EVAP) purge valve (994-917). The new
components cover a combined total of 5.5 million Ford trucks as
well as hardworking Mercedes-Benz and Freightliner Sprinter vans
widely used in “last-mile” delivery fleets.
Technicians and DIYers can also look to Dorman as their single
source for direct replacement automotive bulb sockets for many of
the most popular cars and trucks in North America. This month’s
releases include a tail lamp bulb socket (645-125) designed to
replace the factory socket on more than 8 million aging Ford,
Lincoln, and Mercury vehicles.
Similarly, Dorman continues to be a major force in both
direct-replacement and upgraded wheel hardware, door lock
actuators, and windshield wiper motor/transmission assemblies. This
month, new products in those categories are being released that
offer repair coverage for a combined 9+ million vehicles (details
Dorman’s recent successful acquisition and integration of the
renowned Dayton Parts brand has helped propel Dayton to the
forefront of the aftermarket in heavy duty (HD) repair solutions.
This month marks a historic high number of new HD product releases,
including dozens of in-demand pressure sensors for air conditioning
(ACP sensors), exhaust back pressure (EBP sensors), differential
pressure (DPS sensors), liquid fuel (LFS sensors) and more.
“We are developing the most popular line of sensors for heavy
trucks on the North American road today. This month’s sensor
introductions alone cover more than two million vehicles, and we’re
just getting started,” declares Dorman Product Manager Hailey
Additional new replacement parts reflect Dorman’s rapidly
growing line of solutions for repairs above and below the chassis
of Class 7 and Class 8 trucks, including an OE FIX exhaust gas
temperature (EGT) sensor (904-7439) designed to match the factory
sensor on 2018-2020 Volvo VNL engines. When the original sensor is
removed, the sensor bung is easily damaged. This sensor includes a
bung repair kit, a factory-style connector that requires no
splicing or adapters, and a stainless steel housing with platinum
sensor element for accurate performance.
Other new product highlights for October 2022 include:
- Four windshield wiper transmission and motor assemblies,
extending Dorman’s leadership in coverage in a category that boasts
hundreds of assemblies covering millions of vehicle applications.
These solutions include both the windshield wiper motor and the
transmission and linkage as one unit, because replacing the entire
assembly in one job reduces labor time and ensures accurate
reassembly. The four new products cover a combined 5+ million
Chevrolet, Cadillac, GMC, Saturn vehicles (602-272AS, 602-203AS,
602-825AS), and Jeep SUVs (602-107AS).
- Two convenient aftermarket-exclusive
serrated wheel stud offerings that eliminate the hassle of sourcing
individual hardware for select 2019-2022 Ford Super Duty (610-623)
and 2020-2022 Ford Explorer/Police Interceptor Utility and Lincoln
Aviator models (610-665).
- A first-to-aftermarket liftgate lock
actuator with an integrated cinch latch (931-273) designed to match
the fit and function of the original actuator on 1.4 million
late-model Ford and Lincoln SUVs.
- A cost-effective twin pack of variable
valve timing solenoid gaskets (263-155) engineered to replace
frequently worn and cracked factory gaskets on almost 10 million
2011-2020 Ford and Lincoln vehicles.
