The GMC Sierra CarbonPro edition has been launched in the Middle East, on the GMC Sierra Sierra AT4 1500 Crew-Cab. The purpose-built CarbonPro bed is the first application of its kind for carbon fiber composite and delivers best-in-class dent, scratch and corrosion resistance.
Daniella D’Souza, Head of Brand, GMC, Middle East said: “The GMC Sierra brought the world-first six-function MultiPro tailgate. Adding further functionality and capability the CarbonPro edition, can carry whatever you throw at it, and further demonstrates its strength, space and innovation. The CarbonPro is made of the same raw material found in seven-figure super cars and even aerospace applications."
The CarbonPro bed offers some of the highest cargo volume thanks to its sidewalls being pushed out farther, made possible by the formability of carbon fiber composite that allows molding deep and complex shapes with variable thicknesses. Like the steel bed, the CarbonPro bed provides the ability to slide a 2-inch by 6-inch wooden divider into pockets in the bed wall for cargo organization and separation.
Purposefully grained corrugation optimizes traction and cleanup, with more aggressive graining at the tops of the corrugation to help increase traction in wet weather and a smoother grain at the bottoms of the corrugation for easy dirt and debris removal.
The carbon fiber composite bed does not need to be painted, since the composite material creates a premium surface and is UV stable.
