Jan 4, 2018
Premium Dash Kits for Ford Edge 2015 and up* and Lexus RX300 1999 - 2003
Holly Hill, FL - January 3, 2018 – Metra Electronics® is debuting three new premium dashboard kits with integrated electronics that will join the TurboTouch™ Kit product line in 2018. These new kits will be featured in a working display at CES booth #5211 in the North Hall.
The 99-5851CH is for Ford Edge 2015 and up* models with the factory 4.2” screen. This versatile design with multiple panels allows for installation of the radio or touchscreen in the upper or lower area of the kit. The 99-5851CH has an integrated hazard button and passenger airbag indicator. It is painted to match the factory appearance and is anticipated to begin shipping in spring of 2018.
The 99-8164B is for Lexus RX300 1999 - 2003 models. This kit is custom textured and painted to match the factory finish, and also available in a tan finish as the 99-8164T. Both of these TurboTouch kits are anticipated to begin shipping in the summer of 2018.
Metra’s TurboTouch Kits feature an integrated 4.3” touchscreen and user interface that retains and controls most of the climate and vehicle customization functions that are normally lost when removing the factory radio. Their smart interface technology automatically detects the vehicle’s features. Steering wheel functionality is retained and the patent-pending touchscreen design also retains the factory safety features, including backup camera. TurboTouch™ Kits feature 8 backlit buttons with more than 250 customizable color options, with parts included for Single-DIN and Double-DIN radio installations. TurboTouch kits are proudly made in the USA.
See a working display of the dash kits at the Metra Electronics CES booth #5211 in the North Hall from January 9 - 12, 2018 in the Las Vegas Convention Center. All of Metra’s new kits can also be viewed in the Metra Electronics 2018 New Products Guide, which will be available to download at MetraOnline.com on January 9, 2018.
