Tenneco Inc. (NYSE: TEN), a leading global supplier of Ride Performance and Clean Air products and systems, announced today that it is supplying high-performance passive suspension dampers featuring the company’s exclusive Multi-Tuned Valve (MTV) technology on Ford Motor Company’s newest 2017 Ford Fiesta. MTV offers superior damper performance and durability compared with conventional passive valve designs, resulting in optimum balance between body control and driver comfort.

“We are pleased to contribute to the exciting new Ford Fiesta,” said Martin Hendricks, executive vice president and president, Tenneco Ride Performance.  “Tenneco’s MTV technology allows manufacturers to precisely tailor ride and handling characteristics to provide the perfect mix of sport suspension combined with enhanced vehicle performance.”

As one of Tenneco’s most popular global passive damping technologies, MTV is a clamped-disc, full-displacement valve system engineered to provide a wide range of tuning options, excellent noise performance and other benefits for every road condition. It can be used in mono-tube and double-tube dampers and on vehicles, ranging from compact to premium class.

Each of the new Fiesta models that have debuted in Europe and Middle East and Africa regions – the 2017 Trend, Titanium, Vignale, ST-Line, and Active are assembled in Cologne, Germany. Tenneco is producing the dampers for the Fiesta at its advanced manufacturing facilities in Gliwice, Poland, and Hodkovice, Czech Republic.
