BORGWARNER Provides On-Demand Transfer Case For Jaguar Land Rover Vehicles
BorgWarner delivers its innovative pre-emptive on-demand transfer case for multiple Jaguar models. Initially available for the new Jaguar XF, BorgWarner will also provide the all-wheel drive (AWD) technology for the Jaguar XE and F-PACE crossover. BorgWarner produces the AWD transfer case for the Jaguar XF at its newly built energy-efficient facility in Oroszlány, Hungary. Jaguar Land Rover is the first European automaker to feature BorgWarner’s advanced AWD solution.
BorgWarner’s pre-emptive on-demand transfer case directly connects to the vehicle’s control systems, which monitor signals such as steering wheel angle, accelerator pedal position and wheel speed. To optimize AWD function, pressure from BorgWarner’s patented lightweight centrifugal electro-hydraulic actuator (CEH) compresses the clutch pack to distribute torque between the front and rear axle as needed.
The AWD transfer case offers pre-emptive and precise linear clutch actuation for immediate response, enhanced vehicle traction and stability control. In addition, it is equipped with BorgWarner’s HY-VO® transfer case chain, which is optimized for high efficiency and durable performance. The transfer case also features an innovative pumpless design and sump management for improved fuel economy. To enhance performance and fuel efficiency, the compact chain and gear drive options reduce total vehicle weight and facilitate optimum packaging for space-constrained applications.
