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.

Chevrolet recently introduced the 2021 Silverado HD Carhartt Special Edition, a striking truck with a wide range of features. Pairing with the Carhartt brand, Chevy first introduced a Silverado HD Carhartt edition back in 2016 at the SEMA show — however, the production model has been in the works until now. We can’t wait to see this truck on the road.
The features on the 2021 Carhartt Special Edition model include a Mosaic Black Metallic exterior, Carhartt badging, all-terrain tires, a Carhartt-branded tonneau cover, tow hooks, and other practical amenities. There’s also two-tone leather seating on the interior. The new special edition model is built the features you’ll find on the Silverado 2500 LTZ crew cab with a Z71 off-road package. This includes skid plates, Hill Descent Control, and specially tuned Rancho shocks.
“This truck represents a true collaboration of our brands coming together to create a durable, purpose-built truck for people who not only work hard on the jobsite, but also live a rugged lifestyle,” said Janet Ries, the VP of Marketing at Carhartt.
You’ll be able to drive the 2021 Silverado HD Carhartt sometime soon, as this truck is scheduled to hit the market in the fall of 2020. The Carhartt and Chevrolet partnership is just one of many that lets the Chevy brand offer truly unique special-edition models to its customers.
Everyone knows that the Chevrolet Colorado is a serious off-road beast. And everyone knows that Chevrolet is all about supporting American consumers and the American military. So, it should come as no surprise that GM is basing a brand new Infantry Squad Vehicle on the Chevrolet Colorado, and this impressive ride has specs that will get every off-road enthusiast excited.
The new infantry squad vehicle from GM Defense is based on the Chevrolet Colorado midsize pickup, specifically the ZR2 Bison trim. The new vehicle will be an exceptionally capable off-road truck able to take on the toughest conditions imaginable, thanks to a combination of commercially available and entirely custom parts, such as jounce shocks, Multimatic DSSV dampers, and custom underbody skid plates.
Under the hood, the new military-grade Chevy will boast an advanced 2.8-liter diesel engine. This will be much more than just a high-powered off-road vehicle, though. The new infantry squad vehicle will be spacious enough to carry nine soldiers and plenty of military gear while cruising at high speeds. The vehicle will also need to fit into a CH-47 Chinook helicopter, be sling-loaded by a Blackhawk helicopter, and tough enough to withstand some seriously rugged terrain.
While we won’t see such an incredible vehicle on normal roads anytime soon, the US Army hopes to get about 650 of these impressive squad vehicles sometime in 2020.

GMC CarbonPro™ adds durability, functionality and more to truck beds. The GMC
Sierra CarbonPro™ Editions are available on the 2019 Sierra AT4 1500 and Sierra
The CarbonPro™ bed is both strong and scratch-resistant, so
it can handle heavy loads. When compared to traditional steel beds, the
CarbonPro™ bed weighs 25% less, taking off around 60 pounds from the vehicle’s
mass. Despite its lower weight, the bed increases the cargo volume by 1 cubic
The CarbonPro™ bed also has indentations that allow you to
conveniently transport bikes. Plus, at the front of the bed, there are two
additional tie-down locations, which make it easier to secure cargo.
Thanks to its durable design, the bed lets you save on
spray-in bedliners and rear wheelhouse liners since they’re no longer needed.
Overall, the payload for a truck with a CarbonPro™ bed is at a minimum of 59
pounds higher, so you can carry more for large jobs.
CarbonPro™ will be more widely available on the 2020 GMC Sierra AT4 1500 and Sierra Denali 1500. We at Fuller Chevrolet GMC Truck encourage you to take the Sierra AT4 1500 and Sierra Denali 1500 out for test drives to see how the CarbonPro™ bed can benefit you.

Chevrolet has been helping to protect teens on the road with Teen Driver technology. Now, Chevrolet is adding the all-new Buckle to Drive feature to Teen Driver as a way of reminding teens to fasten their seat belts before driving.
Seat belts are an important safety feature in vehicles. While
it’s the law to buckle up, many people don’t, especially teens, which can be
dangerous. That’s why Buckle to Drive is standard on the 2020 Chevrolet
Colorado, Malibu and Traverse.
Tricia Morrow, Chevrolet safety engineer, says, “My hope is
that Buckle to Drive will help guide more young drivers to wear their seat
belts and encourage positive conversations among teens, their peers and
Buckle to Drive is integrated into the already-existent Teen
Driver system, which lets parents monitor their teens’ driving. This allows
parents to see what their teens do well and what they can improve on. With
Buckle to Drive, teens are unable to shift out of park for up to 20 seconds if
they don’t wear their seatbelts. Furthermore, if teens press their foot on the
brake pedal before they’re buckled up, audible and visual alerts will remind
them to fasten their seat belt.
We at Fuller Chevrolet GMC Truck care about the safety of you and your family. We encourage you to take a test drive and ask us about vehicle safety features.
Chevrolet just keeps on giving us more and
more reasons to love their vehicles.
The most recent reason? Two of their trucks,
the 2019 Chevy Silverado and the 2019 Chevy Colorado, recently ranked on the
U.S. News and World Report’s list of “Best Trucks for Families in 2019.”
The 2019 Chevy Colorado earned its place on
the list for a variety of its amenities. Critics highlighted its impressive
lineup of available engines, its swath of advanced technological features, its
comfortable interior, and its smooth overall driving performance. To keep
passengers happy and entertained, the 2019 Colorado even comes standard with
Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, and Bluetooth® Streaming.
The U.S. News and World Report judges also
lauded the 2019 Chevy Silverado for its spacious and family-friendly qualities.
They reported that this Silverado 1500 is “the best full-size truck you can buy
for your family.”
Both the Silverado and the Colorado come
standard with the Teen Driver system. Teen Driver helps parents to keep an eye
on young drivers’ roadside habits, while enabling them to limit volume and
maximum speed settings. Chevy has also equipped both models with a host of
driver-assist technologies, including Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Change
Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, and Adaptive Cruise Control.

General Motors has been focusing efforts on
the Mexican market, expanding its already-hefty consumer base. After launching
the redesigned Chevrolet Silverado and Cheyenne in Mexico just a short while
ago, GM has also brought the all-new GMC Sierra to the country, fulfilling its
goal of bringing the next generation of the pickup truck to the Mexican market
within the first quarter of 2019.
However, Mexico is only getting three models from the Sierra trim lineup: the SLE Regular Cab, AT4 Crew Cab, and Denali Crew Cab. All models will be produced at the GM Silao plant. AT4 and Denali models will hit the market first, though the SLE Regular Cab model will soon begin production. Even with the limited number of models available, the GMC Sierra will offer features for a variety of lifestyles — the SLE Regular Cab is focused on practicality and capability, the AT4 is optimized for off-roading power, and the Denali is a range-topping luxury truck.
The AT4 and Denali trims of the all-new GMC
Sierra launched in Mexican markets on March 30. The Sierra SLE Regular Cab will
follow suit after it completes production at the factory in Silao. With two
powertrain options and more cabin and storage space than other offerings on the
market, the GMC Sierra is sure to appeal to the consumer base in Mexico.
