OEM Parts: Keeping Your Ford a Ford

If you’ve ever shopped for groceries, you know that there are name-brand items alongside their off-brand counterparts that are cheaper but promise a similar taste. Unfortunately, the off-brand is often a watered-down alternative made with lesser-quality ingredients that leave you regretting your purchase. While this isn’t always the case, it’s certainly common and directly correlates to the ongoing debate between OEM and aftermarket parts.

OEM parts are original equipment manufacturer parts that the manufacturer designs specifically for a model. Because the manufacturer is responsible for the design, OEM parts are typically made with higher-quality materials and come with a limited warranty that reflects their fit and function. As a result, they are not only precise, but they’re guaranteed to work just as the original part that came when your Ford rolled off the assembly line.

In contrast, aftermarket parts are designed to reduce cost. To do this, manufacturers cut corners using lesser-quality materials and adopting a one-size-fits-all approach. So while an OEM part is a genuine Ford component, an aftermarket part like an oil or air filter isn’t explicitly designed for your Ford F-150 and might fit a Toyota, Hyundai, Honda, or another model. Why does this matter?

Integrity, Precision, and Value

OEM parts maintain the integrity of your Ford, down to its smallest components, which is a significant factor for purists who like the idea of using factory-made parts. This guarantees your Ford stays a Ford and eliminates any guesswork about the part’s function. Unlike an aftermarket part, an OEM part for a Ford Expedition headlight is designed only for that make and model. It’s precisely engineered.

As a result of this precision and high-quality materials, OEM parts are generally a better value. You’ll experience this firsthand at our parts department, where our expert technicians can show you critical differences between OEM and aftermarket parts and accessories. You may also experience this after buying an aftermarket part only to replace it in a few months with an OEM part that will last the lifetime of your vehicle.
