Continental Launches Active Grill Shutters For Ford, Chrysler


Recommended Posts

Continental has introduced a new line of active grill shutters for popular Ford and Chrysler models.

Previously available as a dealer-only part, Continental active grill shutters now are available to the aftermarket for direct replacement on popular Chrysler and Ford models.

Continental currently offers 18 part numbers covering more than 16 million Chrysler, Ford and Lincoln VIO from 2012-2020. Key applications include the Chrysler 200; the Ford Focus, Escape, Mustang, Explorer, F-150 and Fusion; and Lincoln MKZ.

Continental expects to expand coverage for its active grill shutters to more than 100 part numbers in 2022.

“Continental developed this line of active grill shutters to meet the rising demand for affordable replacement parts for sophisticated vehicle systems, like engine cooling,” said Christina Bergstrom, senior product manager. “These shutters provide the same operation as the OE part, and ensure the vehicles function at the proper temperatures, improving fuel economy.”

Active grill shutters play an important part in improve vehicle fuel efficiency by maintaining ideal engine operating temperatures. They open at lower speeds to help keep the engine cool and close at higher speeds to reduce drag. They also assist in engine warm-up by retaining heat while the vehicle is parked.

      B’laster Holdings announced the 
      link hidden, please login to view will be expanding into the refrigerants category with a lineup of products created to service and maintain both R-134a and R-1234yf automotive A/C systems. The B’laster A/C line is now available in retailers across the U.S., the company said.
      Features and benefits of the B’laster Refrigerants, according to B’laster Holdings, include:
      Smart Clips allow users to charge by temperature and provide an easier, more accurate way to determine when an AC recharge is complete. Charging an automotive AC system using temperature helps the user avoid overcharging the system. The Safe-Seal formulation permanently repairs micro leaks in both metal and rubber components found in an AC system. The stop leak technology is not reactive with oxygen or humidity because it is not a polymer-based stop leak so it won’t clog your AC system and is safe for use with RRR service machines. Safe-Seal circulates along with the refrigerant in the vehicle’s AC system, sealing micro leaks proactively before they become larger leaks over time. B’laster works with real mechanics to design its product offerings, so users get the perfect pairing of a professional-grade product with DIY package technology. “B’laster has created some of the best automotive care products in the market since 1957,” said Marketing & Product Manager, Morgan Pollen. “With decades of experience to build on, we’re excited about the new technology we’ve developed and incorporated into the B’laster A/C product line. We pride ourselves on being innovative and offering products that both professionals and DIYers can use.”

      Over the past couple of months, MEMA has been building on momentum to try and get the REPAIR Act passed the organization said. Now, it’s announcing the next step in a campaign called the “At Home REPAIR Campaign,” asking aftermarket suppliers to get involved.
      “Members of Congress will be back at home frequently in April, May, June, and July. These recesses provide the perfect opportunities to meet with legislators and urge them, face-to-face, to pass the REPAIR Act in 2024,” MEMA said.
      MEMA’s goal: Suppliers schedule in-person legislator meetings and facility visits during these recesses to advance the REPAIR Act.
      This is after MEMA Aftermarket Suppliers completed their Washington D.C. fly-in to try and build momentum behind the REPAIR Act, also known as H.R. 906.
