 Media.Ford.com: The Products
Ford has a leadership position in powertrain technologies such as six-speed automatic transmissions to simultaneously boost performance — without necessarily going to larger engines — and fuel economy with the wider ratio spreads allowed by the extra gear.
The most significant powertrain improvement, from the driver's perspective, is the new 4.6-liter V-8, with three-valves per cylinder, and single overhead cams with variable cam timing.
The powertrain control module (PCM) directs solenoids to alter the oil flow in the hydraulic cam timing mechanism, which rotates the camshafts in relation to their drive sprockets.

 Powertrain - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It is the portion of a vehicle, after the transmission, that changes depending on whether a vehicle is front wheel drive, four wheel drive, or rear wheel drive.
The manufacturing of powertrain components and systems is a key factor in the competitive position of companies in the automotive and other (truck, motorcycle, tractor, construction equipment…) vehicle industrial sectors.
The resulting advanced powertrain designs in turn impose significantly more severe requirements on the shape, flatness, waviness, roughness, and porosity,of powertrain subsystems, as well as limitations on the allowed presence of potential defects in the surfaces and other dimensional characteristics of the system components and assemblies.

 Delphi Cylinder Deactivation Powertrain Mount
The cylinder deactivation powertrain mount is applicable where additional powertrain isolation is desired, and is particularly intended for a vehicle that has large powertrain forcing functions, such as cylinder deactivation gas engine and diesel engine applications.
The cylinder deactivation engine mount meets both fundamental requirements by reducing the mount stiffness at only the disturbance frequency of the powertrain, while at the powertrain rigid body mode frequencies, the stiffness and damping of the cylinder deactivation powertrain mount are similar to a conventional hydraulic powertrain mount.
The cylinder deactivation powertrain mount uses the principle of fluid inertia to generate a dynamic rate dip that results in a decrease in stiffness of the mount at the desired frequency.

 Shopping for a Car Warranty - MSN Autos
Powertrains involve engines and transmissions as well as other components that help a vehicle move, including axle assemblies.
But while GM bolstered its powertrain warranty to rival the 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranties of Hyundai and Kia, it left alone the limited, basic, bumper-to-bumper warranty that covers most of the non-powertrain parts of a car.
But at Hyundai, which has the longest limited powertrain warranty in the industry—lasting 10 years/100,000 miles—a vehicle's powertrain coverage drops to 5 years/60,000 miles if the vehicle is sold before the original warranty expires.

The vehicle powertrain is the set of systems that convert energy and apply forces and torques to the vehicle in order to control its trajectory and attitude.
Powertrain system modeling is at the heart of all projects in PCRL, whether they are for simulation, diagnostics or control.
This may be as simple as decreasing engine torque briefly during the speed or inertia phase of the shift for improving shift quality, to a complete transmission and engine drive-by-wire system (e.g., BMW 750il) with powertrain controllers continuously calculating the required system inputs.

 GM Moves to Maximize Powertrain Plants
Mueller tells WAW that GM Powertrain's North American initiatives are combined with ongoing activities in its European powertrain joint venture with the Fiat Group to form a two-pronged global initiative that will deliver world-class, cost-effective powertrains for GM and its affiliates — all in a flexible environment.
The second portion of GM's powertrain strategy is directed through its joint venture with Fiat — an arrangement that covers the total of each company's European and Latin American powertrain operations.
Mueller asserts that GM and its equity alliances “comprise 24% of world powertrain capacity,” and that much of GM's powertrain efforts outside North America are focused on maximizing that capacity.
