Innovation. Technology. Efficiency. And a Whole Lot of Traction.

From our inception, we’ve been a company focused on increasing the capability of vehicles, both on road and off. While we’re known for the rugged four-wheel-drive systems we create, these same systems also improve fuel economy and extend the range of vehicles in everyday driving. And it’s out of this efficiency that Warn Automotive was born. 


We’re proud of the heritage and reputation we’ve earned through nearly 70 years of creating products that take vehicles further and bring them back again. But we’re even more excited about the future. About using our expertise to maximize the mobility and efficiency of vehicles of today and tomorrow. And about helping our customers achieve that goal.

A New Company with a Long History

Warn Automotive can trace its beginning back to 1948, when Arthur Warn invented the first disconnecting four-wheel-drive hub for surplus WWII vehicles. Since that time, we’ve continued to lead the industry with a history of innovation in Powertrain Disconnect technology. Today, as Warn Automotive, we’re focused on developing products for OEMs around the world, enhancing the performance, traction and capability of their vehicles while reducing fuel consumption and emissions. And we will continue to focus on the needs of our customers to deliver solutions that enable our philosophy of creating a more mobile and efficient future.

Operating from our headquarters and manufacturing facility in Milwaukie, Oregon – with additional customer support from our Technical Center in Livonia, Michigan – the Warn Automotive team applies our proven expertise to create the highest quality Powertrain Disconnect products in the world. You can find our products on vehicles ranging from heavy trucks and pickups to SUVs and passenger cars. 

Warn Automotive is proud to be a company of Vehicle Service Group (VSG) within the Engineered Systems segment of Dover Corporation. Warn Automotive, LLC is not affiliated with Warn Industries, Inc., which is a wholly owned subsidiary of LKQ Corporation.

A Singular Vision

Warn Automotive envisions a future of efficient mobility with an array of transportation options that support a combination of personal use, recreation, commerce and adventure. We believe the vehicle fleet will evolve to become a mix of private, public and shared ownership, and while vehicle populations and miles travelled increase, the total energy usage will decline through improvements in efficiency. And we see a future where vehicles will use a variety of power sources – from internal combustion to pure electric – and will equip Warn Automotive products to enhance the capability and efficiency of those vehicles.
