SMP continues to add to its aftermarket-leading Ignition Coil program, which includes more than 800 Coils providing 99% coverage for import and domestic vehicles. Each Coil is designed to deliver improved durability and a longer service life. When the OE fails, technicians trust Standard® and Blue Streak® to deliver a Coil that will last.
Standard’s Ignition Coil Program features a variety of coil types to fit many applications, including Coil on Plug, Electronic, Pencil, Cassette, Import, Blue Streak® Heavier-Duty, and Blue Streak® Direct Ignition Coil Kits. The Coils are expertly designed, engineered, and manufactured at SMP’s IATF 16949-certified Poland facility. Each one then undergoes rigorous examination and product validation, including extensive measurement and life testing, a full range of environmental analysis that includes thermal shocks, thermal cycling, and vibration tests to ensure 100% product reliability.
New Standard® and Standard® Import Coil on Plug units are now available for many popular vehicles, including the 2021-20 Hyundai Sonata, 2021-20 Ford Escape, 2022-20 Subaru Outback, 2022-21 Chevrolet Trailblazer, and 2021-19 Porsche Cayenne. Electronic Ignition Coils have been added for many General Motors vehicles through the 2021 model-year, including the Cadillac CT4, CT6, and XT4. New applications also include the 2021-20 GMC Sierra and 2020-19 Chevrolet Silverado.
Additionally, Blue Streak® Direct Ignition Coil Kits have been introduced for a wide array gasoline and hybrid vehicles. These Kits include a full set of heavier-duty units providing technicians exactly what they need for a complete coil service. Blue Streak® Heavier-Duty Coils are engineered to address OE flaws, with improvements and upgrades that continue to elevate Blue Streak® products above the competition. Over 5.7 million Toyota and Lexus vehicles and nearly 8 million Ford vehicles will benefit from the introduction, as well as other popular applications including the 2017-09 Volkswagen Tiguan and 2018-15 Audi Q3. In addition, Standard® is committed to offering Coils for the growing hybrid market. Recent releases demonstrate this commitment, adding coverage for hybrid vehicles like the 2012-2010 Lexus HS250h.
Commenting on the expansion, John Herc, Vice President Engine Management Marketing, SMP, stated, “Our Ignition Coil Program is the most comprehensive in the aftermarket. Technicians trust Standard® and Blue Streak® to give them a Coil that will last, and we are committed to continually adding the coverage they need to service late-model vehicles.”
