2019 Chevy More Megapascals than Ram or Ford: Is that Good?

In the eyes of a classic truck enthusiast the new pickups just keep getting bigger and uglier, but as they say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. For the average working stiff that uses a truck to make a living everyday its not about how many big tacky chrome plastic gee-gaws comprise his trucks grille its all about form follows function. But lets forget about how damn ugly the new trucks are lets talk about cargo area, how the tough the bed is, and how many bells and whistles theyve got these days. Chevrolet recently announced the 2019 Silverado 1500 Durabed is the largest pickup bed, With best-in-class cargo volume, box depth, box length at floor, plus a segment-leading 12 fixed tie-downs and exclusive power up/down tailgate, the 2019 Silverado 1500 is the most function al bed of any pickup. Wed say the engine and trans, but in Chevrolets opinion The bed is the heart and soul of any pickup, so we made several improvements to the bed of the all-new Silverado to give our customers an even better hauling experience, said Tim Herrick, executive chief engineer, Full-Size Trucks, General Motors. Weve added so many features and benefits that it deserves its own name Durabed. Every Silverado bed size has increased significantly in volume for the 2019 model year. The short-boxs volume is up to 20 percent more than any competitors short-box. Most of that increase was achieved by widening the maximum width of the bed floor nearly ten percent (seven inches), which is implemented across all three bed sizes. For model year 2019, higher-grade steel is being used in the construction of Durabed. The quality of the bed floor materials has improved as well, from 340 megapascals to 500 megapascals. Megapascal is a measurement of strength kind of like the Rockwell Scale. In comparison the aluminum bed on a 2019 Ford F-150 megapascals werent listed, but the high-strength steel bed on a 2019 Ram 1500 is 340 megapascals the same as last years high-strength steel Silverado and GMC. And it should be noted high-strength steel is lighter in weight than conventional steel used on earlier trucks.
