AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Nov. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- BorgWarner (NYSE: BWA) supplies its advanced turbocharging technology for Volkswagen's latest four-cylinder gasoline engine for the Chinese market. Engineered to improve performance and fuel economy, BorgWarner's turbocharger helps the automaker's 1.4-liter gasoline engines deliver superior responsiveness over the entire engine speed range. Available with outputs of 96~101KW, the BorgWarner-boosted engine is intended for high-volume production and is currently available for numerous Volkswagen vehicle models in China.
