GMC CarbonPro Bed Is Rugged and Versatile

CarbonPro - Terry, MS

Carbon fiber is one of the strongest and lightest materials used in automotive manufacturing. This makes it the perfect material to use in a pickup truck’s bed. GMC is the first automaker to incorporate carbon fiber as a truck bed material on a large scale by creating the CarbonPro bed.

The GMC CarbonPro bed is available on both the Sierra 1500 AT4 and Denali models. It weighs about 25 percent less than a traditional steel bed, which reduces its overall weight by about 60 pounds. This bumps up the payload ratings of CarbonPro-enhanced pickups. And, since carbon fiber is thinner than steel, and easier to form, it also increases cargo volume by 1 cubic foot.

“CarbonPro is made of the same raw material found in seven-figure super cars and even aerospace applications,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president, Global GMC. “Coupled with offering the world’s first six-function MultiPro tailgate, the 2019 Sierra packs a one-two hauling punch for whatever the situation demands.”

In addition to its increased cargo volume, the CarbonPro beds also come with special indentations for supporting the tires of dirt and street bikes. These, along with the two additional tie-down locations at the front of the bed, can help keep bikes more secure.

Anyone looking to get in on the cutting edge of truck bed enhancements should visit Skinners Chevrolet Buick GMC to see the goods for themselves.
