Federal-Mogul Motorparts’ new line of genuine Ferodo original equipment-quality replacement brake pads has been expanded to cover dozens of additional late-model applications, increasing the line’s coverage to 98% of European nameplate passenger vehicles registered in North America. The new coverage, available immediately, includes several popular Audi, Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz and Volkswagen models up to and including the 2015 model year. Federal-Mogul Motorparts is a division of Federal-Mogul Holdings Corporation.
The availability of Ferodo Premier brake pads in North America enables parts distributors and service providers to leverage the brand’s clear leadership among European vehicle manufacturers. Ferodo brake pads are fitted as original equipment on eight of Europe’s top 10 best-selling passenger car models.
“A true European OE-quality replacement brake pad is the preferred choice of many North American consumers who own European models, and of technicians,” said Christopher Battershell, director of brake product management, North America, Federal-Mogul Motorparts. “By relying on Ferodo Premier pads, service professionals can be certain they are installing brake technologies used by leading vehicle manufacturers and thousands of automotive service businesses across Europe.”
Each Ferodo Premier pad set includes the same advanced, OE-quality friction formulation and pad design preferred by European customers and has been tested to comply with European R90 certification standards. R90 regulates testing protocols and acceptance criteria for European replacement brake parts on passenger vehicles, light trucks, and other vehicles. Additionally, each pad offers performance advantages that have made Ferodo a leading choice of European OEMs. In high-speed testing performed by Federal-Mogul engineers in Europe, using European standards, these replacement brake pads offered superior stopping power and outperformed the competition in benchmark tests for low noise, braking consistency, durability, and wet and dry braking.
In addition to the more than 200 pad sets introduced earlier this year, Federal-Mogul Motorparts now offers the following Ferodo sets covering nearly 550,000 additional vehicles in operation in the U.S. and Canada:
