Here’s Why GM Pickups Rule the Market

Why GMC Pickups Rule the Market | Fuller Chevrolet GMC Blog | Rockland, ME

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.

GM trucks have earned a reputation for reliability, strength, and versatility. Want to see why the Chevrolet Silverado and the GMC Sierra have become the nation’s most beloved trucks? Contact us to learn more about these outstanding models.

The GMC CarbonPro Truck Bed is Tough Enough for Drivers in Rockland

2020 GMC Sierra 1500 CarbonPro Truck Bed | Rockland, ME

The GMC Sierra 1500 has an available CarbonPro Truck Bed that’s tougher than any truck bed out there. After some new testing, it’s been determined that the CarbonPro Truck Bed can handle almost anything that nature throws its way.

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.
