Bosch has added 16 part numbers to its sensor portfolio, which includes pressure termperature, camshaft, crankshaft and knock sensors.

Robert Bosch LLC has added 40 part numbers to expand its braking, engine management sensor and long haul heavy-duty starter lines.

Twenty-one brake pad numbers have been added to the QuietCast and Blue Disc brake pad lines. Seven of the additions are for premium grade QuietCast brake pads. Overall, these additions expand the availability of Bosch braking components for late-model domestic and Asian applications by 1.3 million units in operation (UIO).

The company says Blue Disc sets are offered both with and without hardware kits. For example, the Bosch Blue Disc brake pad set with and without hardware is available for 2012-2013 Dodge Grand Caravan. The Bosch QuietCast kit for the same vehicle is only available with hardware.

The company has also expanded late-model coverage of engine management sensors. The 16 new sensor part numbers extend Bosch coverage by 1.4 million late model domestic and European vehicles in operation.  The company says these are true, direct-fit sensors for applications ranging from Ford Fusion to Cadillac STS, and from Fiat 500 to Porsche Cayman.

Bosch has also released three long haul starters that replace 186 competitive part numbers. The three new starters are designed for Freightliner, Navistar, Sterling, Peterbilt, Volvo, Mack and other applications. Bosch says its proprietary shock-absorbing planetary gear system helps generate more torque for faster starts. This system resists kick back that prevents drive end breakage, a common problem on competitors’ designs, according to the company.

“We know that automotive service professionals depend on Bosch to be ready with quality parts that will be needed to service the vehicles that come in for repair. To that end, we are constantly expanding our coverage and regularly issuing new additions to our product lineup,” says Timo Reif, vice president, product marketing, automotive aftermarket North America.
