Published: Saturday, March 2, 2013 1:15 a.m. CST

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. – BorgWarner will supply its latest turbocharging technology for medium-duty engines from Mercedes-Benz. It is the first commercial vehicle manufacturer to achieve Euro VI compliance for all of its medium- and heavy-duty engines. Replacing the 900 series, the new OM 934 and OM 936 engines are available in different output variants and used in a wide range of on-highway applications such as medium-duty trucks and urban buses. Equipped with the latest B-series turbocharging technology for standard power outputs and an award-winning regulated two-stage turbocharger for top outputs, BorgWarner’s advanced technology helps the engine significantly reduce emissions while improving performance and fuel economy. In addition, BorgWarner also supplies its advanced fans and fan drives for this new engine series.

The new medium-duty engines cover the 5.1-liter four-cylinder OM 934 engine and the 7.7-liter six-cylinder OM 936 engine with a power range of 115 kW (156 HP) to 260 kW (354 HP). Both engines are equipped with variants of BorgWarner B-series turbochargers.

BorgWarner operates a plant in Dixon.
