MORE OPTIONS FOLLOWING BENDIX RANGE EXPANSION
Bendix has expanded a number of the offerings in its portfolio
Owners of Volvo’s XC40, XC60 and XC90 SUV models can now enjoy the braking performance and reliability of Bendix’s Euro+ range.
Available for model year 2018 to current, several front and rear options have been released covering rotor sizes from 16” to 18” (302mm to 345mm).
Bendix explains its Euro+ Brake Pads have been specially developed to deliver superior braking performance for European vehicles and are an ideal replacement for OE pads.
They meet ECE Regulation 90 and ensure low dust operation while delivering braking performance that in most cases exceeds OE counterparts, says Bendix.
4WD pad range grows
Bendix has also extended its range of 4WD pads for Nissan X-Trail (2022 to current) and Hyundai Santa FE (2018 to 2020), offering front pad options for these popular family vehicles. A new front HD pad has also been released for this same Santa FE model.
For more serious off-roaders, the 4WD range also now covers the Jeep Grand Cherokee L (2022 onwards) with both front and rear options. And building on the recent first to market 4WD pad release for Dodge RAM 2500 and 3500, Bendix’s offering for these pick-ups has been further broadened with front and rear options for all models from 2019 to current. Also now covered by the latest range expansion is the LDV D90 (2018 to current), with a rear pad option on offer.
Bendix’s 4WD range is designed for 4WD and SUV use – both on and off road – and provides low noise and dust performance as well as reduced brake fade at higher temperatures.
More Ultimate 4WD Brake Rotors
Ultimate 4WD Sports and Performance Disc Brake Rotors are now available to suit more vehicles including front rotors for Isuzu D-Max and Mazda BT50 from 2121 onwards and a rear option for QE and QF Series Pajero Sport (2015 onwards).
Y61 Nissan Patrols (2001 to 2012) with 4.8l engine also receive a rear option, as does the tough Chevy Silverado 1500 (2020 onwards). Ford people should also be happy because F-150 models from 2018 onwards are now catered to through the Ultimate 4WD rotor offering – model dependent, there are front and rear options to suit.
These rotors have four-wheel-drive specific metallurgy which increases rotor strength at elevated temperatures while also providing high wear resistance.
They also feature high efficiency cooling pillars which channel cool air into the rotor, expelling hot air faster, while additional braking performance is achieved through Bendix’s Diamond Tip Slot technology.
Ultimate 4WD Brake Upgrade Kits for Holden and Mitsubishi
Bendix says its Ultima Ultimate 4WD Brake Upgrade Kits offer the convenience and efficiency of providing all components an owner might want to upgrade the braking performance of their four-wheel-drive in one package (available for either front or rear).
The kits include two Ultimate 4WD Brake Rotors, a set of Ultimate 4WD Brake Pads, a vehicle set of Ultimate Brake Hoses, a litre of heavy-duty brake fluid, a can of Bendix Cleanup, a tube of Ceramasil Lubricant, Bendix rotor wipes, with all contents packaged in a tough 60 litre Bendix Icebox.
Rear kits have been introduced for QE and QF series Mitsubishi Pajero Sport, and for standard Pajero spanning NS, NT, NW (V97W and V98W*) models from 2006 to 2016. And for Holden RG Colorado models from 2012 to 2016, front kits are available both for standard and plus 2” (50mm) ride heights.
