Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is radically reshaping two of its best-selling vehicles to meet new lightweight standards. The 2018 Jeep Wrangler updates the iconic SUV, using ultra-high-strength steel alloys for the frame and aluminum doors, rear gates, and hoods – improving fuel economy without sacrificing the Wrangler’s off-road dominance.
The 2019 Ram 1500 pickup goes down the same path – heavy use of the toughest-to-process steel on the market, coupled with some aluminum exterior components. The truck can tow and haul more while improving fuel economy. The vehicle also integrates safety systems into its design, hiding camera, Lidar, laser, and other systems, keeping sensors safe from road conditions. www.jeep.com; www.ramtrucks.com
