BorgWarner Recognized for its Outstanding Contributions as the Sole North American Supplier of Part-Time Four-Wheel Drive Transfer Cases for the Toyota Tundra

Auburn Hills, Michigan, March 27, 2015 – BorgWarner received a 2014 Regional Contribution Award from Toyota Motor Corporation during the Toyota Global Suppliers Convention held recently in Nagoya, Japan. The award recognizes BorgWarner’s outstanding contribution to Toyota’s localization success as its sole North American supplier of part-time four-wheel drive transfer cases for the 2014 Tundra pick-up truck. Featuring BorgWarner’s proven electronic shift-on-the-fly technology, the transfer case delivers quick, smooth shifts between two-wheel and four-wheel drive. BorgWarner produces the transfer cases at its facility in Seneca, South Carolina.

“We are honored to receive this award and pleased to support Toyota’s manufacturing facility in Texas with our high-quality, proven technologies,” said Dr. Stefan Demmerle, President and General Manager, BorgWarner TorqTransfer Systems. “At BorgWarner, we are passionate about product leadership. Our sincere thanks to the employees who have built BorgWarner’s outstanding reputation as a premier transfer case supplier.”

BorgWarner’s transfer cases for the Toyota Tundra switch between two-wheel and four-wheel drive while moving (or “shifting-on-the-fly”). An electromagnetic-based system synchronizes the front and rear axle speeds before locking them together, providing a smooth, quiet and consistent transition from two-wheel to four-wheel drive with the turn of a dial. The transfer case featured in the Toyota Tundra is also equipped with BorgWarner’s HY-VO® transfer case chain, optimized for high-efficiency and durable performance.
