BROADVIEW, IL. July 14, 2015 – Robert Bosch LLC, global supplier of automotive parts and systems to vehicle manufacturers and the independent aftermarket, has added 29 new SKUs to several of its product lines in July.

Bosch Blue Brake Pads

In July, three new Bosch Blue Brake pad sets have been added to the Bosch braking components portfolio to provide additional coverage for 1.5 million Domestic and Asian units in operation. Specially designed to deliver quality, value and performance to the ‘everyday driver,’ Bosch Blue Brake Pads feature OE-style, multi-layer shims that provide superior noise dampening characteristics. For additional protection and value, select Bosch Blue Brake pad sets are towel-wrapped in a material similar to shop towels that technicians use on a daily basis while working on their customers’ cars.   

One of the new SKUs comes with a hardware kit and covers vehicles such as 1993 – 1997 Geo Prizm and several Toyota models from 1996 – 2000. The two remaining SKUs cover 1995–1997 Ford Aerostar and 2014–2015 Mazda 6.

For the domestic aftermarket, Bosch has released two new fuel pressure sensors designed specifically for vehicles equipped with gasoline direct injection systems. These sensors cover 845,000 vehicles in operation. Bosch GDI Fuel Pressure Sensors feature a sturdy design, are vibration resistant and offer thermal stability.

A fuel pump module assembly is available for 2007–2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and  GMC Sierra 1500, and 2008 Chevrolet Avalanche. Fuel pump kits are available for many BMW models ranging from 1995 to 2006..

Bosch Fuel Pumps meet or exceed manufacturer’s specification. Look for additional additions to this Bosch product line on a quarterly basis.

“As an automotive industry technology leader, Bosch is keeping pace with the needs of service professionals that are seeing new technologies on vehicles entering repair shops,” said Thomas Winter, Vice President, Automotive Aftermarket, Robert Bosch LLC. “As a result, our monthly new product additions now include parts for start-stop and GDI-equipped vehicles – both relatively new technologies for the aftermarket.”
