GM to Use Carbon Fiber Beds in Upcoming Trucks

GM is rumored to be introducing carbon fiber beds in its new generation of pickup trucks, which would reduce vehicle weight and boost fuel economy. GM vehicle include Chevrolet and GMC pickups, so the change would affect the popular full-size GMC Sierra and the Chevy Silverado, as well as the smaller GMC Canyon and Chevy Colorado.

Carbon fiber is a more expensive material than aluminum or steel, but it has huge benefits. Chevy has always been against Ford’s method of using aluminum in the bed of their trucks, citing how much easier aluminum is to dent and pointing out its struggle to carry heavier loads. Carbon fiber is both lighter and stronger than aluminum, meaning its addition would lead to better fuel economy and less chance of damage.

GM is also rumored to be adding aluminum to the doors of its pickups in an attempt to further reduce weight. There is also speculation that the automaker will use carbon fiber in a mix of materials, including a carbon fiber-reinforced thermoplastic that has been in development since 2011.

With 2018 models so newly introduced, we won’t see carbon fiber beds for at least another model year. However, if you’d like to see the newest 2018 pickup models, stop by ELCO Chevrolet for a closer look.
