Tenneco Expands Semi-Active Suspension Technology To North American SUV Market

The technology is designed to adjust to changing road conditions in real time, continuously sensing the road and driving conditions and adjusting the damper within milliseconds.

WATERFORD, Mich. – Tenneco said it will expand its portfolio of continuously variable semi-active suspension (CVSA) technology to the North American SUV market.

The technology has been launched on more than 40 vehicle models globally, according to the company.

“With SUVs and light trucks accounting for more than 60 percent of vehicle sales in North America, it presents an ideal opportunity to expand electronic suspension technology to this important market segment,” said Ben Patel, vice president and chief technology officer for Tenneco. “Consumers expect the same comfort, control and refinement in the ride and handling of SUVs as they find in today’s leading sedans. Tenneco’s proven CVSA solutions meet these expectations without compromising ride comfort for handling.”

CVSA technology is part of the Monroe Intelligent Suspension portfolio. It is designed to adjust to changing road conditions in real time, continuously sensing the road and driving conditions and adjusting the damper within milliseconds.

CVSAe utilizes an externally mounted electronic valve that independently adjusts the damper’s compression performance in real time for a more comfortable and controlled ride. CVSA2 features two electro-hydraulic valves that control the damper’s rebound and compression motions independently, delivering a larger tuning range for higher levels of comfort and control, according to Tenneco.
