New RoadMatic™ by Monroe® Shocks Complete Good/Better/Best Ride Performance Offer for Workshops, Consumers

BRUSSELS, BELGIUM — Tenneco has introduced a comprehensive range of entry-level replacement light-vehicle shock absorbers for budget-minded consumers. The new, approved-quality RoadMatic™ by Monroe® shock range completes the company’s “Good/Better/Best” aftermarket Ride Performance portfolio for today’s passenger vehicles.

New, economically priced RoadMatic shocks by Monroe are specially engineered and built to provide an appealing balance between ride performance and control for each corresponding vehicle model. The new range joins Tenneco’s premium Monroe OESpectrum® and mid-level Monroe Original shocks in a comprehensive offer of highly differentiated ride control service solutions matched to consumers’ performance preferences and budget requirements.

“The Monroe brand is a widely respected mark of quality for workshop professionals and vehicle owners,” said Bruce Ronning, vice president and general manager, Tenneco Europe Aftermarket. “Distributors and service professionals can now rely on Monroe to serve the needs of an even larger audience of quality-minded consumers, including those who want to help restore vehicle ride and handling at an economical price point.”

Tenneco significantly enhanced its premium ride control offer in 2016 with the introduction of Monroe OESpectrum shocks, which feature the revolutionary, patented Monroe R-TECH®2 Rebound Valving Technology™ for virtually instantaneous feedback and response to changing driving conditions. Monroe OESpectrum shocks are offered with the brand’s first five-year product quality and performance limited warranty.

Monroe® Original shock absorbers are specially designed for the replacement market to compensate for wear in the suspension and other components, which occurs normally in a car after having covered thousands of kilometers.
