Unique cooler design provides improvements in packaging, performance, fuel economy

HANNOVER, Germany, September 21, 2010 - Dana Holding Corporation (NYSE: DAN) recently debuted its all-new
water-cooled charge air cooler on the 2011 Ford F-250 Super Duty pickup
truck. The truck, which features Ford Motor Company's all-new 6.7 liter Power
Stroke(R) V-8 turbocharged diesel engine, provides improved torque, power,
and fuel economy.

Dana is showcasing its unique cooler design at IAA Commercial Vehicles
Expo, through Sept. 30, in Hannover (Hall 17, Booth B27).

"As the demand grows for vehicle makers to produce engines that are both
downsized and turbocharged, Dana is delivering innovative, lightweight
solutions such as its water-cooled charge air cooler that provide optimal
fuel economy benefits and greater vehicle performance," said Ted Zielinski,
director of advanced thermal engineering at the Dana Power Technologies

Key to the water charge air cooler's success is its highly compact
packaging design. Unlike air-to-air coolers, which typically must be packaged
in front of the radiator, Dana's efficient cooler design can be accommodated
to fit smaller spaces and can be packaged anywhere within the engine

The water-cooled charge air cooler is constructed using stacked dish
technology. The stamped alternating plates, constructed entirely of aluminum,
provide lightweight benefits, which translate to improved durability and fuel
economy - key features of the new Ford Super Duty engine.

The cooler provides additional performance benefits
for the Ford engine, thanks to Dana's enhanced rolled tiered offset fins. The
unique design of the fin helps to transfer heat more efficiently than current
industry offerings. Dana also utilizes its turbulizer rolling process to
construct the fins, which is more cost-effective and flexible when compared
to standard stamping.

Dana utilized its proprietary fluxless continuous flow
brazing process to assemble the cooler. The result is a clean part with no
residue, which is critical for optimal engine performance. Current flux
brazing offerings often leave residue on the part, which can cause
detrimental interaction with the engine coolant.

"This cooler's innovative stacked dish design, combined with Dana's
proprietary manufacturing processes, demonstrates our ability to provide
thermal solutions that meet highly demanding performance standards in today's
vehicles," said Dwayne Matthews, vice president and general manager of the
Dana Power Technologies Group.

Dana is manufacturing the water coolers at its Mount Forest, Ontario,
