Standard Motor Products (SMP) has introduced 365 new part numbers for October.
Included in the release is new coverage for more than 107 product categories, and 110 part numbers for 2021 and 2022 model-year vehicles.
SMP’s commitment to providing replacement parts for hybrid and electric vehicles through its Standard and Four Seasons brands is evident in this release. The October new-number announcement added new part numbers for the 2021 Mustang Mach-E, 2017-2011 Nissan Leaf, 2022-2010 Toyota Prius and more.
The addition of more than 130 new sensors, switches, actuators and connectors also expands Standard’s powertrain-neutral coverage.
The Standard ADAS program continues to grow. The October new-number announcement includes new park-assist cameras and park-assist sensors. Cruise-control distance sensors are now available for popular Ford and Lincoln trucks and SUVs, and lane-departure system cameras have been added for the 2021-2019 Ford Ranger and 2016-2015 Honda CR-V.
“The 365 products added to our product line with the recent release are a welcome addition to our ever-expanding programs,” said John Herc, vice president engine of management marketing, SMP. “Once again, Standard Motor Products is proving its dedication to our loyal distribution partners and service providers, supplying them with the parts they need and the quality they trust.”
The Standard turbocharger program expands with each release. This month, three new turbocharger kits add coverage for more than 1.2 million popular Ford vehicles including the 2017-2015 F-150. The program wouldn’t be complete without related parts, which include turbocharger oil lines, turbocharger outlet elbows, turbocharger coolant lines, turbocharger oil-drain tubes, turbocharger wastegate solenoids and charge-air coolers.
Standard’s collision repair program continues to expand with the addition of radiator active grille shutter assemblies for the 2019-18 Ford F-150 and 2018-2015 Edge. Additionally, ride-height sensors have been added for popular vehicles such as the 2020-2015 Cadillac Escalade and Chevrolet Suburban. Power door-lock actuators, trunk-lock actuator motors, and tailgate-lock actuator motors are just a few more of the collision products also included in the release.
Standard has released new transfer-case motors for more than 7 million vehicles. This growing line now covers a multitude of popular applications such as the 2022-2011 Dodge Durango, 2022-2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 2016-1999 Ford F-Series Super Duty.
Four Seasons, SMP’s Temperature Control Division, has added 94 new part numbers to its product line, including 19 new hose assemblies covering more than 2.7 million domestic and import vehicles. Popular applications include the 2022-2017 Honda CR-V, 2020-2016 Honda Pilot, 2019-2013 Ford Explorer and 2019-2014 Ford Interceptor Utility.
Also new from Four Seasons are new air door actuators, adding exclusive coverage for the 2019-2009 Toyota Corolla and 2018-2006 Toyota RAV4. Additionally, many heater valves, filter driers, condensers, evaporators, heater cores and more are part of the release, helping Four Seasons to provide technicians with the parts necessary for a complete A/C service.

Here's my story.....I ordered a front wheel bearing for my 2007 Mini Cooper S and installed the part. For some reason I kept my old bearing and the original box the new one came in (glad I did). You have 30 days to return it if its the wrong part or defective. After that it falls on the manufacturer's warranty ( in this case it was 12 months from the received date.) I actually ordered a second one thinking I should replace both.....so I ordered the exact same thing again. The part showed up ... the box had the right part number but what was inside was some other part???? So I sent that back and didn't order another one. I don't drive the car in the winter and so it had low miles on the first new bearing but the bearing didn't last and was worn out in less than 12 months (poor quality I guess or just defective). I was able to send it back to rock auto for a warranty replacement I just had to pay the shipping.... ah ok.... I installed the new one and in a couple of long road trips it was grinding already. I assumed I had 12 months from when I received the new replacement. WRONG ..... the warranty is only good for 12 months from when you received the original one??? What !!!! They would not replace the second defective wheel bearing.... SOL..... BEWARE .... small light car ...how could that hurt a wheel bearing???? it must be poor quality parts .... and will not back you up .... never shopping with them again.
