What are the Cons of Body-on-Frame?

1 minuteread


Body-on-Frame Cons:

The worse handling and heavier weight are negatives.


More Body Roll and Worse On-Road Handling:

Being more isolated from the road comes at a price. The identical design that offers body-on-frame vehicles better off-road capability also means they won’t handle similarly. Body roll is going to be more noticeable, especially because these vehicles often have a better center of gravity.


Less Safe in an exceedingly Crash:

Having the body mounted on the frame means trucks and SUVs cannot dissipate the force of a crash through the complete structure. They don’t spread the impact yet, meaning that more force is transferred to occupants.

Unibody vehicles have the advantage of dissipation through their larger frame. However, the heavier mass of a body-on-frame vehicle can make it somewhat safer in car-to-car accidents.


Pricier to create:

Body-on-frame vehicles are generally costlier to create than unibody ones. This extra cost is passed on to consumers. Moreover, manufacturers know that enthusiasts and workers are willing to pay more for capability. Off-roaders and trucks are dearer than unibody vehicles in most cases.
