Oxnard, Calif. - Scosche Industries lifted the veil on a range of new products being introduced at the SEMA Show this week.

SEMA is being held Nov. 2-5 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

New products include dash kits for the 2010 models of Ford Mustang (FD1441B), Ford Taurus (FD1447B) and Chevy Camaro (GM5201B), all said to use a full color touchscreen air conditioning controller and all priced at $299. The kits are configurable for single or dual climate controls, Scosche said, and plug directly into the factory AC harness.

Scosche will also introduce "Custom kit, Factory fit" dash kits offering automotive-grade components, meant for a seamless installation of any aftermarket head unit to replace the factory radio in select vehicle models, it said. New kits will be offered for Ford, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Mazda, Nissan, Subaru and Toyota vehicles.

The manufacturer said it will consolidate 11 Scosche SKUs with its S3-1 stereo replacement interface ($169), which is engineered to retain steering wheel controls when installing aftermarket stereos from Pioneer, Alpine, Clarion, Kenwood, JVC and Sony. It's said to be configurable for more than 40 million registered vehicles.

The new line of OE interfaces is designed to add an aux input and full or partial control of an iPod via a factory stereo. Features include 30-pin iPod dock and charging cable; manual control option to control iPod; and track up/down, volume, full scrolling text, and menu options such as artist, album and song title. The line reportedly retains factory XM satellite radio and OnStar.

Scosche added to its BlueFusion hands-free interface line with the BT1000 and BT1200 hands-free streaming audio kits. The kits come with a hands-free mic and enable voice dialing. Pricing wasn't given.

Availability for the products will be early spring 2011, a spokeswoman told TWICE.
