General Motors has made the move to be the first automaker to offer a ‘box delete’ option, deleting the bed of the truck, on every single truck within the Chevrolet and GMC portfolio, in any truck configuration.
“We are in the business of meeting our customers’ needs by providing a range of products and solutions that fit their businesses,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president, General Motors Fleet. “Light-duty box delete is a direct response to our customers who have been clamoring for it.”
The option will be available for both fleet and retail customers, providing a $575 MSRP credit, though, the spare tire assembly may be added back on for $335.
Previously, the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado and 2016 GMC Canyon became available with a box delete option, but GM said the option further conforms to the needs of its customers by offering fuel-economy advantages to heavy duty box delete alternatives.
