If you stay on the pulse of all things pickup, you probably know that the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra are frequently updated to stay fresh for truck lovers with evolving capability and technology needs. According to the industry insiders, the two beloved General Motors trucks have some major updates on the way.
Initial rumblings about updates to the trucks actually predicted that the changes would be for the 2021 model year. Unfortunately, due to global supply chain and production issues that affected the automaker, the refresh is now expected for the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra.
For those curious about what changes might be coming to the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado and 2022 GMC Sierra trucks, GM Authority suggests looking no further than the recent updates made to the newest Chevrolet Suburban and GMC Yukon. These models were refreshed for 2021 and include a number of high-tech features and luxury touches.
While similarities between the recent Suburban/Yukon updates and the upcoming Silverado/Sierra refresh are only rumored for now, it’s likely a safe bet to assume there will be some similarities. The Suburban and Yukon were upgraded to include new features like a heads-up display, 10-inch touchscreen infotainment centers, and an all-digital instrument panel.

GM trucks are laps ahead of the competition thanks to the longstanding popularity of the GMC Sierra and the sudden resurgence of the Chevrolet Silverado. GM has solidified its status as the best manufacturer of pickup trucks no matter your needs.
While competitors such as Fiat Chrysler’s Ram and the Ford F-150 have respectable popularity, the reputation of GM trucks outstrips them. The sales of the GMC Sierra outpaced those of the Ram, and impressive 2020 sales have moved the Chevrolet Silverado past both the Ford F-150 and the Ram to join the Sierra and give GM the crown in the pickup market.
A manufacturing transition led to lower sales for GM in early 2019. The new truck architecture developed by GM may have slowed down production, but despite the hiccup, GM still manufactured 807,923 full-size trucks throughout the entire year. A total of 197,743 full-size trucks were built by the auto manufacturer in the first quarter of 2020, giving it a lead over Ford.

GMC has torture-tested the CarbonPro truck bed, which means they forced it to endure 1,800 pounds of gravel, loads of cinder blocks and dumped massive steel drums full of water onto it. Since the bed is so tough, those didn’t leave a lasting mark, but they still wanted to know if the bed could survive unscathed during a Category 1 hurricane.
You’ll be impressed to find out that the CarbonPro Truck Bed did, in fact, survive those conditions with ease. It’s able to survive all of these hard conditions thanks to the carbon fiber’s rebound efficiency, which deflects the energy of an impact rather than absorbing it. Other brands’ truck beds weren’t able to survive the same tests — they were left full of scratches, dents and holes.
In addition to staying strong even in the strongest elements Mother Earth offers, the CarbonPro is lighter compared to the conventional steel truck bed. That allows its maximum payload capacity to be even larger. This bed even comes with an extra square foot of storage space, compared to the Sierra’s standard bed.
