New Honeywell Turbo Technology Redefines Efficiency and Performance of Diesel V-Engines

    Rolle, Switzerland (ots/PRNewswire) -

    - Innovative Sequential Boosting System Enables V8 Performance in a V6 Engine

    Honeywell (NYSE: HON) has launched a unique groundbreaking turbo technology that is enabling the new Jaguar XF 3.0L V6 Diesel to reduce fuel consumption by 12% and CO2 emissions by 10% compared to its predecessor. In addition, this new boosting system allows the V6 engine to achieve performance levels of current V8 diesel engines.

    Honeywell partnered with Ford and Jaguar to develop a sequential boosting system optimized for packaging on a V-Engine configuration. Ford, Jaguar and Honeywell engineers have overcome the challenge of packaging this innovative boosting configuration in the limited V architecture space, enabling automotive designers greater freedom to optimize the vehicle for aerodynamics, weight and crash safety without compromising the stunning car design.

    "We are proud to be a part of the most advanced, powerful and efficient Jaguar diesel ever created," said Alex Ismail, President, Honeywell Turbo Technologies. "This technological achievement sets a new milestone in turbo performance and highlights the determination of Honeywell to provide its customers with world-leading technologies."

    The system is comprised of two small turbos and a Honeywell patented sequential control technology. A VNTTM turbo provides boost at low engine speeds, maximizing driveability and fuel economy, while the second free-floating turbo is activated in parallel at high engine speeds to deliver best-in-class peak power. A Honeywell patented sequential control valve ensures a smooth transition.

    The new turbo system helps to produce a staggering 600Nm of torque (38% higher than the outgoing V6) and is a step up from the Honeywell pioneered bi-turbo architecture for diesel V-Engine applications. The technology enables customers to significantly improve fuel efficiency and performance in an environment unsuited to 2-Stage architecture due to space constraints.

    As the leading turbocharger developer in the world, Honeywell expects the global turbocharger segment to grow from 30% of the overall automotive market to more than 38% by 2013 as automakers look to boost engines to help increase fuel-efficiency and reduce harmful exhaust emissions without sacrificing performance.
