BW pre-emptive on-demand transfer caseA pre-emptive on-demand transfer case will initially be available for the new Jaguar XF and BorgWarner says it will also provide the all-wheel drive (AWD) technology for the XE and F-PACE crossover models.

This transfer case directly connects to the vehicle’s control systems, which monitor signals such as steering wheel angle, accelerator pedal position and wheel speed. To enhance performance and fuel efficiency, the compact chain and gear drive options reduce total vehicle weight and offer optimum packaging for space-constrained applications, claims the company. The AWD transfer case for the Jaguar XF is made at BorgWarner’s facility in Oroszlány, Hungary.
