BorgWarner (BWA) To Provide Energy And Drivetrain Tech For 2010 Ford Fusion And Mercury Milan

BorgWarner just announced that its energy and drivetrain technologies will be used in the 2010 Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan. The company’s contributions include Cam Torque Actuated (CTA(TM)) variable cam timing (VCT) technology, the first of its kind, which improves the efficiency and fuel economy of the engine. BorgWarner also designed chain timing systems for the 2.5 and 3 liter engines. For the model 6F35 6-speed automatic transmission, BorgWarner contributed the HY-VO chain, friction plates for the clutches, and the transmission solenoid module. These innovations also reduce the energy needed by the engine, improving fuel economy.

BorgWarner’s technologies will help these cars achieve better mileage and/or more horsepower at the same mileage than the 2009 models. For example, the 2010 2.5-liter Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan will consume 8% less fuel, and the 3 liter versions will provide 20% more horsepower than the 2009 models without using additional gasoline.

In a press release, Tim Manganello, BorgWarner Chairman and CEO, commented on the news:

“At BorgWarner, we are driven to create innovative powertrain technologies that boost fuel economy as well as performance. In the Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan, drivers can enjoy both. Our collaboration with Ford earned two 2009 Automotive News PACE awards. We look forward to continuing our strong partnership in the future.”
