Are you tired of unsightly dents and scratches in your truck bed? Then you might want to think about getting a truck with the industry-first available GMC CarbonPro® truck bed. It’s so tough that GMC tested it against hurricane-force winds. 

The GMC CarbonPro® comes standard on all 2019 and 2020 Sierra 1500 Denali CarbonPro® Editions and the Sierra 1500 AT4 CarbonPro® Edition models. Instead of using the standard truck bed model, which consists of steel for the panels and floor, this innovative bed is made from a rugged carbon-fiber composite. 

The CarbonPro® was designed to ensure long-term durability in a truck bed that provides best-in-class dent and scratch resistance. In order to ensure its ruggedness and functionality, GMC subjected it to a number of rigorous tests, not the least of which being Category 1 hurricane-force projectiles, one of the strongest forces in nature. After proving to be unphased by things like extreme temperatures, corrosion, and 1,800-pound loads of gravel, the CarbonPro showed that it had no issue taking on hurricane winds either. 

Beds made without the carbon-fiber composite did not fare quite as well in the hurricane test, thanks to its higher rebound efficiency. That allows items to bounce right off rather than absorbing the impact.
