AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Feb. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --BorgWarner produces the
two-speed, part-time four-wheel drive transfer case for the 2014 Toyota Tundra
pickup truck. Featuring BorgWarner's 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, South Carolina, BorgWarner is Toyota's
sole transfer case supplier for the Tundra in North America.

"Toyota's decision to localize this key driveline component with BorgWarner
confirms our strong reputation as one of the world's premier transfer case
suppliers for the automotive industry," said Dr. Stefan Demmerle, President
and General Manager, BorgWarner TorqTransfer Systems. "BorgWarner's product
leadership extends from engineering through production, culminating in smooth
product launches. We are pleased to support Toyota's manufacturing facility in
Texas with our high-quality, proven technologies."

To switch between two-wheel and four-wheel drive while moving (or
"shifting-on-the-fly"), BorgWarner's transfer case uses an
electromagnetic-based synchronization system to synchronize the front and rear
axle speeds before locking them together. Unlike conventional mechanical
synchronization systems, BorgWarner's 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. Optimized for high-efficiency, durable
performance, HY-VO chain technology also offers low mass and durability in a
compact package.
