Active grill Shutters

Spectra Premium active grille shutters (AGS) part numbers.

Located between the front grille and the condenser, the AGS are plastic shutters that open or close to control the inbound airflow, improving fuel economy by helping the engine to warm up and reducing drag at high-speed.

This technological development has been in use in cars (like the Dodge Dart) and light trucks (like the Ram 1500 and Ford F150) for a few years.

“The greater trend in the automotive market is toward innovations that improve energy efficiency, and it’s important for us that our product offering matches these technological advances,” said Eric Renaud, corporate director Spectra Premium.

For the cooling system, Spectra Premium adds six new late-model radiators for popular domestic and imported models, like the CU13584 fitting the 18-16 Toyota RAV4.

In addition to the MA394 and MA321 part numbers, Spectra Premium introduced its third multifunction air intake sensor (MA389) for domestic models such as the 16-12 Buick Enclave, 16-13 Cadillac Escalade.
