Federal-Mogul Expands Champion Iridium Spark Plug Coverage

Federal-Mogul has expanded its Champion Iridium automotive spark plug line to cover an additional 7.5 million late-model passenger vehicles.

The expansion means that Champion Iridium plugs are now available for 97% of North American passenger cars, vans, light trucks and sport utility vehicles that were originally equipped with iridium technology.

Federal-Mogul’s latest expansion of the Champion Iridium line includes seven new part numbers that cover late-model Acura, BMW, Chrysler, Dodge, Ford, Honda, Hyundai, Infiniti, Jeep, Kia, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Saturn, Suzuki and Volkswagen applications. Every Champion Iridium spark plug is engineered to meet application-specific operating requirements that match the original equipment iridium plug and provides long-lasting performance.

The new plugs are available through any Champion spark plug distributor and are backed by the brand’s seven-year, unlimited mileage guarantee.

Iridium is the precious metal of choice for today’s vehicle manufacturers due to its excellent wear characteristics and stabilizing effect on ignition voltage.

“These Champion Iridium spark plugs are engineered and manufactured in a state-of-the-art U.S.-based Federal-Mogul facility equipped to deliver the OE-equivalent or better product quality standards and performance preferred by today’s vehicle owners,” said Champion Product Manager Joe Cirino. “This expansion of the Champion Iridium line demonstrates our commitment to provide the most advanced technology and materials for any passenger vehicle originally equipped with iridium plugs.”

To identify the right Champion spark plug for virtually any application, North American repair professionals and car enthusiasts can use the convenient, electronic catalog.
