Back To Diesel Products>Honeywell Set to Turbocharge 70% of U.S. Diesel Light Truck Segment With Launch of Ford 2011 Super Duty Truck

Honeywell DualBoost and AVNT(TM) Technologies Enable Ford and GM to Meet New Emissions Targets While Achieving Power and Fuel Efficiency Goals

CHICAGO, Feb. 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall

Honeywell (NYSE: HON) announced today that it would be turbocharging 70% of the U.S. diesel light truck segment following the launch of Ford's 2011 Super Duty Trucks. Ford joins General Motors in adopting Honeywell turbo technologies to boost its line of light duty diesel trucks.

Ford's new 6.7-liter Power Stroke engine in its F-250 and F-350 models uses Honeywell's VNT™ DualBoost turbocharger, an innovative design that uses a double-sided compressor wheel mounted on a single shaft. As a result, the single-unit turbo delivers benefits approaching that of a twin-turbo system, but in a smaller, more efficient package. In addition, this innovative design allows a Variable Nozzle Turbine (VNT™) DualBoost turbo to drive ultra-high levels of EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) in line with 2010 US emissions standards that call for 80% reduction in NOx while maintaining the ability to achieve higher horsepower

"Partnering with Ford to introduce our industry-first DualBoost technology on its iconic Power Stroke engines exemplifies our technology leadership and demonstrates our ability to provide customized turbo solutions that meet specific engine requirements," said Alex Ismail, President and CEO, Honeywell Transportation Systems. "We are confident that DualBoost will be another success story as part of our technology portfolio for light duty diesel trucks."

In addition to DualBoost, Honeywell also offers AVNT™, a variable nozzle technology that was first introduced for light truck diesel engines in 2001. Honeywell AVNT™ turbochargers were first equipped on General Motor's popular Duramax engines in 2003, and since then have been continuously refined to adapt to several engine architectural changes. The enhanced turbo aerodynamics and a new center housing design have resulted in a new generation of AVNT™ turbos that enable the latest Duramax engine to deliver 18% more power compared to the 2004 engine while meeting the latest emissions standards that called for sharp reduction in NOx emissions.
