Jaguar Land Rover choose Tenneco’s suspension tech for all-new XE

New XE Sports Sedan suspension is 20 per cent stiffer than previous X-models

Jaguar Land Rover choose Tenneco’s suspension tech for all-new XE
High performance, lightweight monotube shocks designed to offer engineers increased mounting options for a more flexible and dynamic suspension design.

The vehicle’s lightweight, high-pressure gas monotube shock absorbers offer excellent vehicle stability and handling as a result of innovative valve technology.

The special design provides more mounting options, higher potential damping levels and a better response compared with twin tube shocks.

Sandro Paparelli, vice president and general manager, Europe Ride Performance, said: “We are proud to integrate our innovative monotube valve technology as a suspension feature on the all-new Jaguar XE with its state-of-the-art Advanced Aluminium Architecture.

“Like Jaguar, we are committed to developing lightweight solutions that enhance vehicle dynamics and ride quality while helping to reduce fuel consumption and lower CO2 emissions.”

Low damping forces can be independently tuned in rebound and compression modes.

The system also independently adjusts damping blow-off levels and damping progression rates in mid- to high-speed ranges.

The valve design differs from standard monotube valve designs where damping force level and progression rate are mutually dependent.
