GMC trucks are built tough, which is why the new Sierra
Denali 1500 and Sierra AT4 1500 will include brand-new CarbonPro™ beds. If
you’re curious to learn more about this new bed liner, here is an overview.
What is a CarbonPro™ bed?
CarbonPro™ is a composite made of carbon fiber that is extremely durable and resistant to scratches, dings, and corrosion. GMC global vice president Duncan Aldred said of the new CarbonPro™ bed liner, “CarbonPro™ is made of the same raw material found in seven-figure super cars and even aerospace applications. 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.”
Why choose a CarbonPro™
GMC wanted to make sure the CarbonPro™ bed was up for
anything, which is why it was brutally tested. These tests ensured it could
handle 1800 pounds of gravel dropped from alternating heights, a snowmobile
running its tracks at full speed against the bed, and the heat and cold of
extreme locations like Yuma and Kapukasing. In all test cases, the CarbonPro™
bed came away with only minimal signs of wear. The GMC CarbonPro™ bed also
eliminates the need for a spray-in bed liner, and increases the Sierra’s
payload due to its lightweight nature.

For pickup drivers, long-term durability is one of the most significant indicators of overall quality. Because pickup drivers submit their vehicles to some of the most demanding driving of all, they absolutely need every component of their truck to last, even under extreme conditions. To this end, GM has introduced the all-new GMC CarbonPro bed, raising the bar for durability within the truck segment.
The CarbonPro box boasts high-strength and low-weight
carbon fiber composite materials for added strength and rigidity and reduced
weight. The result is the most rugged pickup box available on the market.
GM performed a number of extreme tests on the CarbonPro box
during development. Researchers dropped cinder blocks onto the box from an elevation
and unloaded 1,800 pounds of gravel into the bed. They even filled the box with
water-filled steel drum barrels weighing 450 pounds each.
Carbon fiber is naturally corrosion-resistant, but GM
tested out the corrosion-resistance of the CarbonPro bed nonetheless. Researchers
exposed it to extreme temperatures and subjected it to the most drastic
climates in North America.
Finally, GM tested the CarbonPro bed’s resilience by driving a snowmobile with metal studs into the bed. The result? You guessed it: the all-new CarbonPro bed took it in stride.
