French to English translations [PRO]
Tech/Engineering - Automotive / Cars & Trucks
French term or phrase: silhouette
This term appears when describing a range of trucks, of different sizes and with different configurations.

The document is not a marketing text, and so the term is not an elaborate way of describing the vehicle's shape.

In addition, 'chassis' is used separately (and which I have translated in English as 'chassis').

With thanks!
