Tenneco’s Monroe Intelligent Suspension Technology Featured On The New Mercedes-Benz G-Class

The technology allows for a flexible tuning range between minimum and maximum damping levels, which delivers superior comfort, handling and stability, says the company.

Tenneco Inc. announced 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, says the company. 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.”
