Company makes parts for Toyota

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. – BorgWarner produces the two-speed, part-time four-wheel drive transfer case for the 2014 Toyota Tundra pickup truck. Featuring proven electronic shift-on-the-fly technology, the transfer case delivers quick, smooth shifts between two-wheel and four-wheel drive with the turn of a dial.

Providing transfer cases manufactured at its facility in Seneca, S.C., BorgWarner is Toyota’s sole transfer case supplier for the Tundra in North America.

To switch between two-wheel and four-wheel drive while moving, the transfer case uses an electromagnetic-based synchronization system to synchronize the front and rear axle speeds before locking them together. The electromagnetic-based system provides a smooth, quiet, and consistent transition from two-wheel to four-wheel drive.

The transfer case featured in the Toyota Tundra is equipped with BorgWarner’s HY-VO transfer case chain. The HY-VO chain technology also offers low mass and durability in a compact package.

BorgWarner operates a plant in Dixon.
