Default BorgWarner AWD System to Debut in 2007 Chrysler Sebring & 2008 Dodge Avenger

BorgWarner AWD System to Debut in 2007 Chrysler Sebring & 2008 Dodge Avenger

Press Release:
BorgWarner All-Wheel Drive System to Debut in 2007 Chrysler Sebring and 2008 Dodge Avenger

2007 Chrysler Sebring and 2008 Dodge Avenger will offer BorgWarner's Interactive Torque Management (ITM 3e(TM)) system as an option for drivers who value performance, fuel economy and stability. The sophisticated technology, which debuted last year, is the latest, next-generation interactive technology available as part of BorgWarner's growing iTrac(TM) torque management systems portfolio, a full- line of active torque management devices focused on the needs of the expanding front-wheel drive/all-wheel drive market.

"We are proud to launch another front-wheel, all-wheel drive application with DaimlerChrysler, using BorgWarner's new ITM 3e(TM) system," said Cindy Niekamp, President and General Manager, BorgWarner TorqTransfer Systems. "Building on our successful launch on the 2007 Chrysler Pacifica, adapting this technology to additional applications was the natural progression. As a global leader in advanced front-wheel drive-based all-wheel drive technology, we are pleased to provide the next generation of Chrysler and Dodge drivers with the enhanced vehicle traction, stability and handling that the system offers."

In addition to providing the ITM 3e(TM) hardware, BorgWarner will also supply the electronics, software controls, and vehicle integration support. These capabilities are core competencies of BorgWarner and provide automakers like Chrysler Group with outstanding vehicle performance.

The ITM 3e(TM) system exercises sophisticated controls and algorithms to sense slip, and seamlessly converts the front-wheel drive-based platform to all-wheel drive within milliseconds. This augments vehicle handling by optimizing traction of both the front and rear wheels. At highway speeds, the system automatically reduces power transfer to the rear wheels, which improves fuel economy versus other all-wheel drive systems. In addition, the ITM 3e(TM) system is designed to work in cooperation with other vehicle systems like anti-lock brakes and electronic stability programs to further enhance traction and stability.

Auburn Hills, Michigan-based BorgWarner Inc. is a product leader in highly engineered components and systems for vehicle powertrain applications worldwide. The FORTUNE 500 company operates manufacturing and technical facilities in 63 locations in 18 countries. Customers include Ford, VW/Audi, DaimlerChrysler, General Motors, Toyota, Renault/Nissan, Hyundai/Kia, Honda, BMW, Caterpillar, Navistar International, and Peugeot.

I guess they had to come up with something that didn't sound anything at all like "4Motion." Because zey are different companies, ja?

So this officially brings the count to 100% of the number of new cars that have AWD at least as an option. OK.. maybe not quite, but just over the last 2 years the number of AWD models has skyrocketed. Subaru better be bringing something special with the new Impreza - it's niche is being invaded.
