2019 GMC Sierra CarbonPro Bed Coming This Summer

Built out of carbon fibre, the GMC Sierra’s available CarbonPro bed is designed to outlast then all, save weight and look good in the process.

The 2019 GMC Sierra Denali CarbonPro Edition, which will be optional for the Sierra AT4 1500 and Denali 1500, will begin production in early June. And although we do not yet know how much the option will go for, we can list its benefits.

A pickup’s bed is one of its greatest assets and as such, is constantly put to work. GM has developed the next generation of the bed for its GMC Sierra and it’s made out of semi-exotic carbon fibre.

According to GMC’s press release, the key benefits of the CarbonPro bed include:

  1. Strength, durability and scratch resistance: The carbon fiber composite material provides the most scratch, dent and corrosion-resistant pickup bed in the industry.
  2. Corrosion-resistance:Carbon fiber composite naturally resists corrosion, helping the bed withstand weathering and maintain a premium appearance over the life of the truck.
  3. Reduced weight: The CarbonProbed weighs 25 percent less than a traditional steel bed, removing roughly 60 pounds of vehicle mass. Its grained surface also negates the need for bed liners, potentially saving further vehicle mass.
  4. More volume:The CarbonPro bed design enables best-in-class cargo volume, increasing the already class-leading volume of the Sierra’s roll-formed steel bed by 1 cubic foot.
  5. More functionality: The CarbonProbed features indentations specifically designed for tires of dirt and street bikes. Two additional tie-down locations are installed at the front of the bed.

GMC’s not simply decided to hapzardly offer the CarboPro bed because it seemed like a cool trick. It has undergone rigorous testing in order to avoid the F-150 aluminium stories…

If you recall, Ford made a big deal about switching to aluminium for its trucks. A short while later, GM took far too much pleasure demonstrating (realistically or not) that this was not the right way to go. They, and RAM, briefly considered moving over to the same lightweight material but quickly doubled back.
