All New 2017 GMC Acadia/Denali Sheds 700 lbs. with Steel

This is a vehicle we’ll be investigating further!  Built on a new, lighter body structure, the 2017 Acadia’s driving dynamics are more responsive, while its shorter length and narrower width enable greater maneuverability, for easier turning in parking decks and easier parking in home garages. The body structure incorporates press-hardened, high-strength steels, which allowed thinner […]

Implementing AHSS in Vehicle Structures…and Improving Tomorrow’s Carbon Footprint

One of the biggest hurdles facing automakers in making electrified vehicles a high volume reality is the cost of the battery. The lighter the vehicle, the less energy required to mobilize, and the smaller the battery needed. Consequently, development emphasis is on small size vehicle classes, where the battery size and ultimate vehicle cost are […]

Auto Benchmarking Study Reveals More Lightweighting Opportunities With Steel

BRUSSELS, 19 October 2015 – A study released today by WorldAutoSteel, the automotive group of the World Steel Association, showed a wide variation in efficiency among steel components in vehicles on the road today. The study, “A New Paradigm for Automotive Mass Benchmarking,” further revealed that when aluminium closure components, such as doors, bumpers, hatchbacks, […]
