BorgWarner unveils product

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. – BorgWarner now produces next-generation HY-VO chain drives transfer cases for the Lexus GX and the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado, 4Runner, Tacoma, and FJ Cruiser.

Specifically engineered to reduce friction, the chain improves efficiency and helps increase fuel economy. BorgWarner produces HY-VO chain for these applications at its facility in Japan. 

Developed in partnership with Toyota, the new HY-VO chain features optimized tooth geometry with two different tooth shapes designed to reduce noise, vibration, and harshness. Set in a specific pattern, the links offset noise without the need for the spring links employed in previous designs. Compared with gear drives, HY-VO chain drives offer lower cost, lower noise, improved efficiency, and greater center distance tolerance.

BorgWarner operates a plant in Dixon.
