BorgWarner is now supplying its advanced engine timing system for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ (FCA) all-new aluminum 2.0-liter gasoline engine. This Alfa Romeo exclusive engine debuts in the new Alfa Romeo Giulia sedan and also will be available for the brand’s upcoming SUV. BorgWarner says the state-of-the-art engine timing system includes the company’s next-generation silent timing chain for direct-injected, boosted engines, and helps FCA reach its challenging engine performance goals.
“We are very pleased to expand our successful business with FCA by supplying Alfa Romeo with our sophisticated engine timing solutions, as we have for other FCA engine series since 2010,” said Joe Fadool, president and general manager, BorgWarner Morse Systems. “At BorgWarner, we understand how various complex engine timing components interact with each other. This enables us to deliver leading integrated systems solutions specifically tuned and optimized for each customer application.”
BorgWarner’s engine timing system is designed to reduce mass and friction for improved fuel economy and engine efficiency. The advanced chain has high-quality finishing links and optimized chain link profiles and pins for improved wear performance, the company adds. Featuring a precisely designed geometry to reduce mass, BorgWarner’s silent timing chain offers best-in-class strength and durability as well as the lowest noise, vibration and harshness on the market, according to the company.
