News makers: A look at the most popular new products released to the industry this year

Countdown 10

As you prepare for the close of 2020 business, we understand you’re busy. This year has been a wild one.

So it’s perfectly okay if you missed the start of our annual Trucks, Parts, Service top aftermarket products countdown, which began last week. We started our annual top ten countdown in 2014, and in the six years since we’ve had the opportunity to recognize nearly three dozen suppliers and 60 wonderful products.

This year we again have ten great products, as well as four suppliers who will be recognized for the first time. But that also means we have six products introduced by suppliers who we have recognized before.

And that’s not surprising. Because our top ten products are selected by reader engagement each year, it is common for popular aftermarket suppliers and manufacturers to make our list time and time again. Some companies just create that type of buzz.

Additionally, while we’d love for you to keep up with our countdown in our TPS Daily Newsletter in the days ahead, we also recognize that might not be doable. So, to make things as easy as possible, we also have appended a running tally of our 2020 honorees below. This list will continue to update each day through the end of the year, which means any time you want to know where we are in our countdown — and who is getting recognized — you can return to this page to see every business we have honored.

If you represent a supplier who made our list this year, congratulations to your entire team. If you represent a supplier who came up short, don’t be discouraged. There’s always next year. You never know what product will captivate our industry.
