Tenneco Inc. has been awarded the business to supply suspension technology for the Jaguar E-PACE compact SUV. Tenneco’s conventional front strut and rear shock absorber will be standard equipment on the vehicle, while the Continuously Variable Semi-Active (CVSAe) suspension system from its Monroe Intelligent Suspension portfolio will be included in the adaptive dynamics package.
Tenneco’s CVSAe dampers are integrated in the Jaguar Land Rover Adaptive dynamic system, which senses road and driving conditions in real-time, independently adjusting each damper to provide a more comfortable and controlled driving experience.
“By continuously adjusting damping levels, Tenneco’s precision-engineered CVSAe technology offers drivers an optimal balance of handling and comfort,” said Neville Rudd, senior vice president, Tenneco Global Ride Control. “The compact SUV segment is fast-growing and competitive, and Tenneco’s advanced suspension technology solutions provide OE customers a way to differentiate their models in the marketplace. In addition, consumers benefit from enhanced comfort, control and the freedom to select the ride to fit their needs.”
The company supplies the Jaguar E-PACE front strut and rear shock from its manufacturing facilities in Gliwice, Poland, and Hodkovice, Czech Republic, and the CVSAe suspension system from its facility in Ermua, Spain.
