Latest System First Use of CVSA2 Suspension Technology for SUV
Applications

Tenneco Inc. (NYSE:TEN), a global supplier of Ride Performance and
Clean Air products and systems, announced today that the Mercedes-Benz
G-Class line of SUVs will offer adaptive adjustable damping using
Tenneco's Continuously Variable Semi-Active (CVSA2) suspension
technology from the Monroe® Intelligent Suspension portfolio. The CVSA2
technology will be standard on the Mercedes-AMG G 63 performance SUV and
offered as an option on G350d and G500 models. These are the first SUVs
to offer Tenneco's CVSA2 technology.

CVSA2 is a semi-active suspension technology designed around a
lightweight damper that features two externally mounted
electro-hydraulic valves that independently control rebound and
compression damping. The technology allows for a flexible tuning range
between minimum and maximum damping levels, which delivers superior
comfort, handling and stability. Initially designed for use with
high-performance sports cars, the latest generation of CVSA2 technology
has been adapted to SUV applications. The CVSA2 corner modules have
integrated aluminum yokes and can either be installed with coil springs
(like on the G-class) or air springs.

"Our research into consumer preferences coupled with the increasing
popularity of our Monroe Intelligent Suspension portfolio, confirms a
growing demand for advanced suspension solutions across multiple vehicle
segments," said Martin Hendricks, president, Ride Performance, Tenneco.
"One of our most advanced offerings, the latest generation of our CVSA2
technology combines proven road handling benefits, unsurpassed off-road
capability and advanced ride comfort tuning capabilities for SUVs."
