Borg Warner is not just a famous trophy... [Ed Note: Borg Warner is the same Borg Warner as that on the Indy 500 Trophy. If they are all about the turbocharged engine's relevance and efficiency, then why isn’t IndyCar sitting there with a normally aspirated V8 in the back of its antiquated cars?]
BorgWarner will supply turbochargers for rear-wheel drive trucks featuring Ford's 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine. Ford expects up to 90% of its nameplates sold in North America will be available with downsized direct-injected turbocharged engines by 2013.
"Pairing BorgWarner's advanced turbocharging technology with Ford's gasoline direct injection on the EcoBoost engines allows drivers to experience the benefits of up to 20% better fuel economy without sacrificing performance or comfort," said Roger Wood, President and General Manager, BorgWarner Turbo & Emissions Systems. "We are pleased to work with Ford to optimize these benefits so that millions of consumers will enjoy exceptional engine responsiveness with more miles to the gallon."
The combination of turbocharged power and gasoline direct injection enables a down-sized Ford EcoBoost engine to deliver improved torque and smooth power delivery over the entire engine speed range with no turbo lag. Through a worldwide development program, BorgWarner and Ford engineers from North America and Europe worked to maximize performance and fuel economy. Whether driving in the city or on the highway, the technology offers consumers real-world benefits.
As a leader in turbocharging technology, BorgWarner pioneered turbocharging advances for gasoline direct-injection engines which led to several innovations, including gas-flow components adapted to the special demands of direct-injection gasoline engines and an integral manifold for improved energy efficiency and more power. BorgWarner was also the first worldwide turbocharger manufacturer to develop temperature-resistant materials for key turbocharger components to withstand exhaust temperatures as high as 1,050 degrees C throughout the lifetime of the vehicle. BorgWarner has been actively increasing capacity to meet the high-growth potential for turbocharged vehicles that require more powerful, yet fuel- and space-efficient engines.
BorgWarner Turbo & Emissions Systems is a leading global producer of turbochargers, exhaust gas recirculation valves and other engine air management systems for passenger cars, light trucks and commercial vehicles. These systems are designed to improve fuel economy, reduce emissions and enhance vehicle performance.
