The New Aluminum Standard

In an effort to stay environmentally conscious, the automotive industry is turning to a new sustainable standard: aluminum. Not only is this metal cheaper for auto makers to obtain, but the majority of it is sourced from recycled elements, making aluminum incredibly eco-friendly.

Aluminum vs. Steel

This age-old controversy is deserved, but in keeping with expectations of modern drivers, steel simply can’t compare. Aluminum is significantly lighter than steel, meaning that aluminum vehicles weigh less and require less power to move them, directly translating to increased fuel efficiency. Another benefit is that aluminum is corrosion resistant and much less likely to rust as opposed to steel so your vehicle looks newer, longer.
