Dana Corporation announced recently that it will supply the front axle assembly, as well as driveshafts and advanced sealing technologies, for the 2006 Ford Explorer.

"With more than 300,000 units produced last year, the Explorer was the top-selling SUV in the United States," said Michael J. Burns, Dana chairman and CEO. "We are excited to play an important role in the redesign of this vehicle by providing new, innovative engine and drivetrain products."

The new Explorer’s front axle has been redesigned for increased fuel efficiency, and the axle assembly incorporates a new best-in-class sealing system for improved durability.

In addition, the 4.0L version of the Explorer engine features a Dana thermoset cylinder-head-cover module. The thermoset injection compression molding technique and other design enhancements for this cam cover module help meet noise, vibration and harshness demands; deliver lower emissions; produce less engine distortion; and provide higher temperature resistance. The 4.6L version of the engine includes a Dana oil pan gasket, front cover gaskets, exhaust gaskets, cylinder-head gaskets and valve stem seals.

Additionally, Dana provides all of the vehicle’s front driveshafts, as well as the rear driveshafts for the V8 and 4×2 Explorer models.
