Nice article, Danielle. We've also seen aluminum being used in the Chevy Colorado's hood, front steering knuckles, cylinder heads and engine blocks. We've seen similar applications in many other cars, as well. Here's a link:

The shift to using aluminium is an interesting trend, but all that prinmary school stuff about the properties of aluminium! Really - I'd have expected better from an enginbeering publication.  In fact, I felt insulted by the author's 'suprising fact' - that, pound for pound, aoluminium is stronger than steel.  Well, I never!
