Standard Motor Products (SMP) has expanded its comprehensive Collision Repair program. The collision market is large, growing and extends well beyond body work and paint. Standard says its Collision Repair Program offers more than 7,500 parts to meet the demand. Every component is a direct-fit replacement and is designed to correctly integrate with the electronic safety systems found on today’s vehicles, according to the company.
The Standard ADAS program includes park assist cameras and sensors, cruise control detection sensors, blind spot detection sensors, lane departure system cameras, and steering angle sensors for a complete line of ADAS components. Recently released ADAS parts add coverage for 51.8 million vehicles in operation. The newest additions to the line include park assist cameras providing an additional 12.5 million repair opportunities, including popular applications such as the 2020-‘16 Dodge Durango, 2019-‘16 Nissan Rogue, and 2018-‘17 Subaru Forester. New lane departure system cameras are now available for the 2021-‘19 Ford Ranger and 2016-‘15 Honda CR-V, and blind spot detection sensors coverage now includes an additional 6 million Ford and Lincoln vehicles.
Front and Rear Impact
Front and rear impacts have the potential to damage a wide range of vehicle components. Standard products in this category include active grille shutters, airbag clock springs, center high mount stoplight assemblies, charge air coolers, headlight level sensors, and hid headlight ballasts. Standard’s growing line of active grille shutters now includes coverage for the 2020-‘18 Ford F-150 and the 2020-‘18 Buick Enclave. Additionally, Charge Air Coolers are now available for the 2020-‘16 Chevrolet Camaro, 2020-‘18 Mini Cooper Countryman, 2021-‘18 Ford Expedition, 2017-16 RAM ProMaster 1500 and more.

Many actuators, sensors, and switches are susceptible to damage in collisions. Standard offers a line that includes ambient air temp sensors, anti-lock brake system (ABS) sensors, door lock actuators, hood latches and actuators, liftgate actuators, ride height sensors, trunk lock actuators, combination switches and more. A total of 65 ABS sensors have been added so far this year, covering nearly 14 million vehicles in operation. Hood latch assemblies have been introduced for 7.9 million vehicles in operation including the 2020-‘11 Toyota Sienna and 2017-‘14 Toyota Camry.
The connectors category includes connectors and pigtails that are vulnerable in rear, front and side collisions due to their on-vehicle locations. Newly introduced parts include ABS speed sensor connectors for the 2017-‘11 Nissan Leaf, blind spot detection sensor connectors for the 2017-15 Dodge Challenger, park assist sensor connectors for the 2019-‘10 F-150, and many more.
