Which of the following statements about unibody construction is not true?

  1. A unibody is a stressed hull structure in which each of the body parts supplies structural support and strength to the entire vehicle.
  2. Unibody vehicles tend to be tightly constructed because the major parts are all welded together.
  3. All unibodies are constructed from steel.
  4. Most front-wheel-drive unibody vehicles have a cradle or partial frame.

To determine

The untrue statement about the unibody construction.

Explanation

A unibody is a type of vehicle body construction in which the chassis, frame and all other components are unitized together to make a single body structure.
