New Continental Active Grill Shutters for Chrysler, Ford

Eighteen part numbers deliver coverage for more than 16 million Chrysler, Ford, and Lincoln VIO from 2012-2020.

Continental, manufacturer and supplier of OE-engineered aftermarket replacement parts, introduced a new line of Active Grill Shutters for popular Ford and Chrysler models. Previously available as a dealer-only part, Continental Active Grill Shutters are now available to the aftermarket for direct replacement on popular Chrysler and Ford models, the company says.

Continental currently offers 18 part numbers and delivers coverage for over 16 million Chrysler, Ford, and Lincoln VIO from 2012-2020. Key applications include Chrysler 200, Ford Focus, Escape, Mustang, Explorer, F150, Fusion, and Lincoln MKZ. Continental expects to expand coverage for its Active Grill Shutters to over 100 part numbers in 2022.

Christina Bergstrom, senior product manager announced the new line, noting, “Continental developed this line of Active Grill Shutters to meet the rising demand for affordable replacement parts for sophisticated vehicle systems, like engine cooling. These shutters provide the same operation as the OE part, and ensure the vehicles function at the proper temperatures, improving fuel economy.”

Active Grill Shutters play an important part in improving vehicle fuel efficiency by maintaining ideal engine operating temperatures, says the company. They open at lower speeds to help keep the engine cool and close at higher speeds to reduce drag. They also assist in engine warm up by retaining heat while the vehicle is parked.
