As of late, every automaker is promising huge weight discounts realized from redesigning traditionally heavy cars using more lightweight materials. Land Rover claimed to have shaved around 926 pounds through the recent Range Rover-our scales showed perhaps half which savings-and Ford has trumpeted the 2015 F-150’s aluminum body as economizing 700 pounds versus its predecessor.

It sat for the platform given to Volkswagen’s Touareg and Porsche’s Cayenne, underpinnings designed to produce big-time off-road ability; as such, the bones were more heavy and also beefier than required for these vehicles’ day-to-day functions.
