Aluminum-Bodied, Lighter-Weight Range Rover Coming in 2012

I thought aluminum cars had been looked at and rejected some time ago. Interesting to see they’re looking at it again.

The next all-new Range Rover is coming in 2012, and reportedly it will benefit from an aluminum body shell to cut as much as 40 percent of its weight.

The U.K. publication Autocar reports that the weight savings from the change to aluminum could save 660-880 pounds from the curb weight of the big luxury SUV.
