For the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray – the North American Car of the Year – Tenneco supplies emission control components, including electrical valves for exhaust system sound tuning. The valves work in concert with the vehicle’s driver modes, opening and closing to control the Corvette’s exhaust sound as it switches between a fuel-saving four-cylinder mode and an eight-cylinder mode.

On the North American Truck/Utility of the Year – the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 – Tenneco supplies ride performance technologies including monotube shock modules and rear shocks. The company also provides elastomer products, including its all-new hydroelastic body mount; front suspension bushings; spring bushings and front top mounts.

“We congratulate Chevrolet on receiving these prestigious awards,” said Gregg Sherrill, Tenneco chairman and CEO. “Tenneco is very proud to contribute to the success of our global customers like GM by providing innovative clean air and ride performance solutions. We’re committed to helping them develop exciting new vehicles that are clean, fuel-efficient and fun to drive.”

The winners of the 2014 North American Car and Truck of the Year awards were announced on Jan. 13, 2014. The annual awards are designed to recognize the most outstanding new vehicles of the year, which are benchmarks in their segments based on factors including innovation, comfort, design, safety, handling, driver satisfaction and value for the dollar.

Tenneco is a global supplier to GM, and supports the Corvette and Silverado platforms from seven manufacturing facilities in four countries.
