They've got a lot to live up for with how long it's taken. I'm most interested to see if there's anything unique with the bed.

Nothing etched in stone, but my 2c: 4’ composite with cargo D-rings, sidewall storage, and under-bed storage. Top 3 trims come with pkg that includes factory installed integrated cover, utility track rail system, 115AC power, and bed lighting. I don’t expect anything super special otherwise.

I think it would’ve been really awesome to have the extendable bed a la concept, but I guess it’s hard to make that for production?

I'm fine with them ripping off something similar to the Dodge Ram 1500 cargo management system. You can use it as a bed divider flat, into a U-shape into the bed, or to extend the bed you lower the tailgate and attach the U-shape so it goes to the edge of the bed.

I have one on my Ram and its always been very practical.



Hopefully they also would ripoff something the old Avalanche did which let you do a passthrough into the cab of the vehicle for really long items.

Totally agree with some sort of cargo bed extender to use the lowered gate to its max potential.

I would doubt that they’ll be a pass-through, because the rear window is sliding and I think would get lowered into that area when the window is down?

*although, where is the rear window in that Avalanche?
