What are the Pros of Body-on-Frame?

1 minuteread


Body-on-Frame Pros:

Most of the pros associated with body-on-frame are in terms of strength and off-roading.


Better Off-Road Capability:

The biggest advantage of body-on-frame vehicles is their off-road ability. Higher torsional flexing allows the platform to raised articulate over uneven terra
in. It can twist and move independently of the body.
Additionally, the frame is healthier at absorbing jarring bumps that may rather be transmitted through the complete body. Body-on-frame vehicles are usually mounted higher too, which implies better ground clearance.


Higher Towing Capacity:

The ladder frame design typically employed in body-on-frame platforms excels at towing. This frame style will usually have a heavier, more robust construction. For this reason, pickups and huge trucks are nearly always body-on-frame.


Modularity and Lower Accident Cost:

By nature, body-on-frame platforms are heavily customizable. This suggests the manufacturer can put a brand new body on an existing frame with relative ease. Additionally, the modular nature can make it easier to switch parts after an accident.


Less Noise, Vibration, and Harshness (NVH):

Body-on-frame vehicles also provide more isolation from the road, which frequently means less NVH. This will improve ride comfort. However, a contemporary luxury vehicle with many efforts put into NVH reduction will still be easier than a basic pickup. Still, a body-on-frame can give drivers that “old-school SUV” feel of being separated from the road.
