Performance & Reliability
Garrett turbo systems – from the renowned Variable Geometry Turbo (VNT) architecture to innovative Two Stage designs – leverage engineering advances in aerodynamics, materials, bearings and electric actuation to set new benchmarks for performance and reliability.
Small Wastegate Turbochargers for Diesel Engines
Our latest small wastegate turbos, with improved aerodynamics, provide a cost-effective route to fuel efficiency and emissions control without compromising performance. The compact design focuses on low-end torque and transient response and, with its lighter weight, offers packaging flexibility valued by automakers.
Variable Geometry Turbochargers for Diesel Engines
Garrett’s variable geometry VNT technology has been matched to more than 70 million diesel engines in the last three decades. The turbo’s advanced design helps manufacturers boost car and light commercial vehicle engine performance, increasing fuel efficiency, reducing emissions, enhancing driveability and improving packaging flexibility.
Two-Stage Parallel Turbochargers for Diesel Engines
Our Two-Stage parallel turbo for diesel engines was an industry first when we released it in 2006. Since then, it’s increasingly in-demand among auto manufacturers seeking enhanced performance, fuel efficiency, and emissions control.
Two-Stage Serial Turbochargers for Diesel Engines
Garrett’s Two-Stage serial turbo for diesel compounds the benefits of turbocharging by using two turbos in a series arrangement. This helps improve transient performance, offers better low-speed torque and optimizes fuel efficiency in passenger and commercial vehicle applications. Auto manufacturers can use this technology to either downsize engines or increase performance.
Garrett Motion Showcased the Electric Turbocharger for the First Time at IAA 2019
The growing trends toward hybridization open up possibilities to transfer electric boosting technology from racetrack to road. Garrett is pioneering E-Turbo technology to deliver superior performance, fuel economy and emissions, by integrating state-of-the-art, ultra-high-speed electric motors and power electronics into its turbocharger product families.
Electrified Turbos (E-Turbos) show exciting potential and equal applicability in both light & commercial vehicles, in all fuels such as gasoline, diesel and natural gas (CNG).
