The bed not only survives unscathed, but there’s not even the slightest dent or minor discoloration. Impressive. Typically, carbon fiber is reserved for race cars and supercars (even spacecraft) thanks to its light weight and durability. Up until now, we’ve never seen it utilized by an OEM as a truck bed material, and the results fully speak for themselves. GMC claims its new CarbonPro offers best-in-class dent, scratch, and corrosion resistance.
For now, it’s only offered on the GMC Sierra, but GM has indicated this won’t be the case forever. In other words, the more popular and less expensive Chevrolet Silverado will eventually get this option.
