Is Body-on-Frame Safer than Unibody?

Body-on-frame vehicles are typically seen as less safe than unibody designs. There are several reasons for this. The primary is that they’re heavier. Though this suggests they need more mass to soak up impacts, it also implies that braking and handling are worse. this will make it tougher to avoid accidents in the first place.

Additionally, a body-on-frame vehicle handles worse at higher speeds because of its higher center of gravity. This leads to a greater chance of a rollover crash. Finally, because the body and frame are separate, crash impacts aren’t dissipated furthermore as a unibody.


Which is better:

For the foremost part, drivers don’t have to “choose” the sort of body and frame their vehicle has. If they need a car, they’ll get a unibody. If they need a truck or off-road vehicle, they’ll get a body-on-frame.

There are exceptions once you get into the SUV and crossover segment. Except for the overwhelming majority of drivers out there, a unibody vehicle is sensible. If you would like smooth handling and fuel efficiency but still desire a large vehicle, crossovers get the task done nicely.

For people who tow or enjoy rugged Overlanding, rock-crawling, or mudding, the body-on-frame remains the king of Capitol Hill.
