2013 BMW X5 F40 to adopt a new aluminum chassis

The future generation of the BMW X5 SAV, expected to debut somewhere in 2013 and known as F40 inside the German company might adopt a new lightweight chassis, an aluminum one, instead the steel one that is used for the German SUV now. The third generation of the BMW X5 is likely to introduce a new chassis, able to reduce of course, the mass of the model but also to not forget the consequences of this change, that is the higher power-to-weight ratio and the improved fuel consumption.
