June 20, 2018—ZF Aftermarket has announced the launch of a first-to-market technology to the STABILUS product line; the POWERISE lift support.
The STABILUS branded POWERISE lift support offers consumers a hands-free operation when maneuvering their vehicle’s hatch.
“POWERISE is a self-contained, electromechanical lift support which encompasses all necessary elements to open and close heavy tailgates automatically,” said Tom Galla, ZF Aftermarket senior product manager.
This all-in-one automatic drive system gives users the ability to remotely open and close their vehicle’s hatch in a matter of seconds, providing consumers with a more efficient use of their time when opening and closing their vehicle’s hatch.
Combining the motor, lift support and connection into one system, STABILUS has created a simplified plug-and-play installation process. This combination also reduces the number of parts an installer needs to complete the installation.
“With the addition of POWERISE to ZF Aftermarket’s All Makes/Models lift support product line, automotive repair businesses will have greater access to genuine replacement units. This will enable them to repair customers’ vehicles faster and with OE-quality parts,” said Galla.
The current applications for the STABILUS POWERISE are:
- ’15 – ’10 BMW X3 Hatch
- ’14 – Jeep Grand Cherokee Hatch
- ’15 – ’12 Ford Escape Hatch
