  • GMC unveils electric Hummer pickup truck
    21 October 2020

    GMC has unveiled what it is calling “its new supertruck,” the 2022 GMC Hummer EV, an electric-powered off-roader pickup that appears to be General Motors’ answer to the variety of Jeeps and to the forthcoming Ford Bronco.

    The electrified Hummer is scheduled to go into production in the fall of 2022.

    “The GMC Hummer EV is revolutionary, defying what the industry thinks of as a pickup truck,” Duncan Aldred, vice president of the Buick and GMC brands, was quoted in the news release. 

    He added that the Edition 1 version of the truck “will make Hummer EV’s  unprecedented capability and zero-emissions a very special proposition for customers.”

    Edition 1 vehicles, with a base price of $112,595, will be done in white exteriors with 5-seat “Lunar Horizon” interiors featuring a 13.4-inch infotainment screen and 12.3-inch driver information display.

    There a ‘frunk’ up front that can store removable roof panels

    But the most striking feature may well be an “Infinity Roof” with removable transparent “Sky Panels” that can be stored in the “frunk” at the front of the vehicle. Edition 1s also will have a power-rear backlight, power tonneau cover for the bed and a MultiPro tailgate.

    Edition 1 Hummer EV trucks will feature an Extreme Off-Road Package with 18-inch wheels wearing 35-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory MT tires, underbody armor, rock sliders, underbody cameras, as well as adaptive air suspension and 4-wheel “CrabWalk” steering with a diagonal-drive mode.

    The trucks will have a 3-motor propulsion system with 1,000 horsepower and what GM figures to be 11,500 pound-feet of torque. GMC expects 0-60 mph acceleration to be achieved in 3 seconds. Range is foreseen to exceed 350 miles, GMC added.

    The trucks also will offer “Super Cruise,” a hands-free driving mode for 200,000 miles of roads that have been readied for such technology.

    If the Edition 1 price comes as a shock (pun intended), GMC added that the base price for the Hummer EV with a 2-motor system will be $79,995, $89.995 for a model with adaptive air ride and CrabWalk, and $99,995 for one with the 3-motor system. Those versions will be available, respectively, in Spring 2024, Spring 2023 and Fall 2022.

    “The Hummer EV will be the first full-electric vehicle in GMC’s portfolio and is powered by General Motors new Ultium battery system,” GMC noted. 

    Batteries will be produced in Lordstown, Ohio, in a joint venture with LG Chem, and the trucks will be assembled in Hamtramck, Michigan.

  • 2022 GMC Hummer EV Revealed with 1,000HP/11,500 lb-ft of Torque & 350+ Mile Range
    21 October 2020

    Electrification in the automotive world is coming down the pipeline whether we like it or not. Today’s reveal of the all-new 2022 GMC Hummer EV is more evidence of such an effort by major automakers to electrify their fleet in the coming years. However, when it comes to a truck, GM sets out to be on for forefront of electrification by bringing us the new GMC Hummer EV today packing in 1,000 horsepower and 11,500 lb-ft of torque from its three electric motors in an Edition 1 trim, which is the first trim level available with others (two-motor and three-motor without torque vectoring setups) due out at a later date.

    Other notables in the 2022 GMC Hummer EV are 35-inch mud terrain tires, independent suspension with adaptive air shocks that have a height-adjustment range of 6 inches, a fording depth of 2 feet, and a range of 350 miles or more. Charging supports 800-volt fast charging up to 350 kW and can add an additional 100 miles of range in 10 minutes.

    On the side of tech, the GMC Hummer EV features a rather large 13.4-inch infotainment touchscreen, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster screen, and Super Cruise autonomy with automatic lane-changing.

    There’s something to be said about such a vehicle, and we can’t wait to check one out before paying the base price of $79,995 or $99,995 for the top-trim Edition 1 2022 GMC Hummer EV, a real ELECTRIC truck with a MultiPro tailgate available Fall of 2022.

    DETROIT –GMC today introduced the 2022 HUMMER EV Edition 1 — a first-of-its kind supertruck developed to forge new paths with zero emissions.

    It will be the first fully electric addition to GMC’s lineup, driven by next-generation EV propulsion technology that enables unprecedented off-road capability, extraordinary on-road performance and an immersive driving experience designed to put occupants at the center of every moment.

    “This innovative truck comes to market with speed and purpose, bringing GM another step closer to an all-electric future,” said Mark Reuss, president of General Motors. “With our Ultium Drive architecture as the foundation for an exceptionally broad range of performance, HUMMER EV is perfect for the customer who wants capability, efficiency and performance.”

    The HUMMER EV will get its energy from General Motors’ all-new Ultium batteries and power from Ultium Drive, GM’s proprietary EV drive units. A GM-estimated best-in-class 1,000 horsepower and GM-estimated 11,500 lb-ft of torque are generated by three separate motors within two Ultium drive units to give HUMMER EV’s e4WD remarkable on- and off-road capabilities. Additional purposeful and intuitive technologies will complement the truck’s range and capabilities to enhance and elevate every excursion.

    Forge any path, differently

    “We had one goal for HUMMER EV: Build the most capable factory truck – ever,” said Al Oppenheiser, GMC HUMMER EV chief engineer. “It’s an absolute off-road beast with a unique e4WD drive system that provides maneuverability unlike anything GM has ever offered before.”

    The GMC HUMMER EV is designed to be the ultimate off-road EV supertruck, with all-new features developed to challenge tough obstacles and terrain.

    Highlights of available features include:

    • Segment-Exclusive 4 Wheel Steer featuring CrabWalk1 â€” a segment-exclusive feature..
