Advantages of Aluminum

Land Rover engineers adopted the proven construction techniques of the aerospace industry to assemble the aluminum monocoque bodies of the 2013 Range Rover and 2014 Range Rover Sport. When joining aluminum pressings, rivet bonding uses self-piercing rivets and epoxy adhesives for strength, robustness and durability.

The body of these vehicles are significantly stiffer and lighter than their steel-bodied predecessor. These attributes make the vehicles both more agile and safer. Being lighter than the equivalent steel bodies, aluminum structures carry significantly less kinetic energy into a collision, reducing the amount of energy that has to be absorbed by the bodies in an accident.

Front and rear crush zones in the body structure progressively absorb crash energy while protecting the integrity of the cabin, and the "tube-in-tube" propshaft features built-in crush properties to absorb collision energy.
