ACDelco shows off OE parts at AAPEX Show

Posted on October 29, 2012

In addition to new products and support services, ACDelco is packing some extra muscle into this year’s Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) Show – a 2013 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible that features 580 horsepower and a 0 to 60 time of 4.2 seconds.

“The same great engineering organization that gave us the Camaro backs our GM OE parts lineup, which is something no other aftermarket provider can claim,” says Chris Brandt, ACDelco national marketing manager. “We’re looking forward to showing off new products and services that will help our customers accelerate their business.”

The ACDelco AAPEX booth (4838) will feature: 

* 100% new ACDelco Professional alternators and starters. With 212 alternators and 122 starters, the line covers both GM and non-GM applications, with 81% market coverage for model years 1970-2010.

* ACDelco battery family including the new Advantage battery, which carries a full 18-month free replacement period.

* An enhanced Learning Management System that gives shop operators a global, single point of access to deliver and track technician training. Take a free training test drive at www.acdelco.com/trainingtestdrive.

* An Elite Extra Tracking and Routing application that saves money and improves efficiency by automatically managing delivery queues, providing customized routing and generating estimated times of delivery.
