Abstract:
The objectives of a new generation of light trucks required the development of a new platform chassis, using advances in packaging, manufacturing efficiency, mass reduction, fuel efficiency, noise and vibration toughness, and ride comfort, while maintaining the vehicle's fun-to-drive character. This paper outlines the chassis component and packaging integration, light weight material application with structural optimization, as well as technical concepts executed to improve performance. Key component focus points are axles and bearings, wheels, tires, suspensions, brakes, engine cradles and sub-frames, steering systems, mechanical controls, and fuel and exhaust systems.
