BorgWarner has said that it is supplying a number of its advanced engine and drivetrain technologies for the new Great Wall Haval H9. The Chinese sport utility vehicle is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre gasoline engine and features a BorgWarner engine timing system, turbocharger and 2-speed Torque-On-Demand (TOD) transfer case.

Launched in November, the Haval H9 is earning a reputation as a quiet, comfortable, high-performance vehicle.

“With a winning combination of proven advanced technologies, localised production and engineering support, BorgWarner is growing its market share with domestic Chinese vehicle makers,” said Tom Tan, President, BorgWarner China.

“The latest BorgWarner technology under the hood of a Great Wall vehicle is our complete engine timing system featuring best-in-class silent chain. We are pleased to provide Great Wall with advanced technologies designed to boost fuel economy and performance.”

BorgWarner says its turbocharging technology helps the Haval H9’s GW4C20 engine achieve an output of 218 HP (160 kW) and a maximum torque of 324 Nm.

Great Wall is a leading player in China’s burgeoning SUV market. Last year, the Haval H6 was the Chinese market’s number one SUV, with 315,881 sold.
