The refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 made its big debut last October, introducing a wealth of changes and updates for the light-duty pickup nameplate. Now, however, GM Authority has learned that the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500’s CarbonPro Bed is currently offered with limited availability.
The Carbon Fiber Composite Bed for the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 is tagged with RPO code E3Z, and is usually available for GMC Sierra AT4 and GMC Sierra Denali trim levels, as well as included as standard for the new-for-2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali Ultimate. However, the carbon bed is currently under constraint for AT4 and Denali trim levels. The feature is still included as standard for the GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate trim level.
The Carbon Fiber Composite Bed is usually offered as part of the AT4 CarbonPro Edition and Denali CarbonPro Edition package (RPO code PCP). Both packages include the following content (relevant RPO codes listed in parentheses):
- CarbonPro fender Hard Badge
- Carbon Composite Bed (E3Z)
- MultiPro Audio System by Kicker (PDV)
For the GMC Sierra AT4 trim, the carbon bed requires the AT4 Premium Package (RPO code PDG) and is not available in conjunction with the 20-inch machined aluminum wheels with Carbon Grey Metallic accents (RPO code NZH). To note, the Carbon Fiber Composite Bed, AT4 CarbonPro Edition, and Denali CarbonPro Edition package are only available in conjunction with the Crew Cab / Short Bed body configuration.
Both the AT4 CarbonPro Edition and Denali CarbonPro Edition packages have been unavailable to order since production start of the refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra 1500.
Essentially, the Carbon Fiber Composite Bed is currently only available for the range-topping 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali Ultimate. As it turns out, the range-topper is currently “sold out” for the 2022 model year, as GM Authority covered previously.
As for the greasy bits, the refreshed 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 is offered with a quartet of powertrain options, including the turbocharged 2.7 I4 L3B gasoline engine, naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine, naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, and 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax. Production takes place at the GM Fort Wayne plant in Indiana and GM Silao plant in Mexico, while under the skin is the GM T1 platform.
