New Chevrolet Silverado And GMC Sierra Slated To Offer Carbon Fiber Beds 7

Posted by Michael Gauthier in Chevrolet, Chevrolet Silverado, GMC, GMC Sierra, Reports on 12 7th, 2017


General Motors mocked Ford for using aluminum beds in the F-150 and that struck many people as a surprise considering the redesigned Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra were expected to go the same route.

However, Autonews and The Wall Street Journal are reporting the upcoming trucks will instead use a mix of lightweight materials including aluminum and carbon fiber. Nothing is official but speculation suggests the trucks may use carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastic which has company has been developing since 2011.

Little is known about the company’s plan but the WSJ says the mixed material bed will be offered within the next two years. The report also claims the bed would to limited to higher-end versions of the pickups which presumably means we could see it on the next GMC Sierra Denali. Over time, the beds could eventually become available on more mainstream models.

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra are expected to be unveiled shortly and this points to a debut at the North American International Auto Show. If that’s the case, the models will be shown alongside the 2019 Ram 1500 which is expected to be lighter and more efficient that its predecessor.

GMC Sierra All Mountain Concept Laughs In The Face Of Snow 21

Posted by Michael Gauthier in concepts, GMC, GMC Concepts, GMC Sierra, LA Auto Show on 11 21st, 2017


The GMC Sierra 2500HD is a formidable truck and the company has decided to kick things up a notch by creating the All Mountain concept.

Set to be unveiled later this week in Colorado, the All Mountain concept is based on the Sierra 2500HD Denali 4WD Crew Cab and it has been equipped with Mattracks which enable the model to handle extremely snowy conditions.

While the tracks are the most noticeable modification, the truck has also been equipped with custom graphics, an LED light bar, and a rugged front skid plate. The model also has side steps, a tonneau cover, and snowboard racks from Thule.

Power is provided by a 6.6-liter Duramax turbo diesel engine which produces 445 hp (331 kW) and 910 lb-ft (1,232 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed Allison automatic transmission that sends power to a four-wheel drive system.

The concept will be displayed at Vail Mountain over the winter as part of a partnership with Vail Resorts. As GMC marketing director Rich Latek explained “This unique concept truck is a fun way to attract attention to GMC and highlight our partnership with Vail Resorts.”

Fans who can’t make it out to Colorado will be able to check out a similar All Mountain concept which will be unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show later this month. Little is known about the model but GMC said it will be based on the Sierra 2500HD All Terrain X.

GMC Sierra Desert Fox Resurfaces Among The Dunes Of Dubai 21

All sorts of outlandish things happen among the sands of Dubai. We don’t always hear about them, but this one has blipped on our radar.

It’s the GMC Sierra Desert Fox, a concept truck showcased at the Dubai Motor Show. It’s sort of like a Ram Rebel or Toyota Tundra TRD Pro, but with a heavy dose of retro thrown in.

The truck harkens back not to the Nazi general Erwin Rommel (who was known by that nickname) but to the Desert Fox editions that GMC offered in the 1970s, like the vintage Jimmy shown alongside the concept.

That throwback treatment comes down principally to the earth-tone stripes on the beige bodywork, but the rest of it is all hardcore off-roader.

Though official details are even more scarce than official photos, but you can’t miss the chunky tires, bead-lock wheels, jacked-up suspension, low-profile bumpers, nose-mounted winch, side steps, skid plates, custom exhaust, spare tires and jerrycans in the bed, and sports bar with auxiliary LEDs. It even has a pair of hazard flags extending way up high from the roof, all the better to see roaming the dunes of the Arabian peninsula.
