2022 GMC Hummer EV
GM announced the reincarnation of the Hummer moniker in early 2020 as an EV, to much surprise. It was supposed to debut in May last year, but the pandemic threw a spanner in the works and it had to be pushed by a few months. In October, the super truck was finally revealed with a whole lot of information.
The Hummer EV boasts of specs that can throw the competition out of the water, but it comes with a starting sticker price of $80,000, which makes it a super-premium offering. So, is this mouth-watering product with an eye-watering price tag the ultimate truck that you need in your garage?
The 2021 Hummer EV Pickup - Nearly 200 Accessories At Launch
GMC teased the Hummer EV’s reincarnation almost a year back and unveil to debut it in May 2020. However, the pandemic played a spoiler and the company finally debuted it in October 2020.
The electric supertruck came with a lot of features that make it a unique proposition. It’s no secret that owners love to customize their trucks to their taste. It looks like GMC understands this, after all, it knows a thing or two about trucks (duh!). Now, a report suggests that the automaker will introduce nearly 200 accessories at launch.
2021 GMC Canyon AT4 Off-Road Performance Edition
When GMC unveiled the 2021 Canyon AT4 back in January, speculation started that a special edition model was already in the works. It probably took longer than GMC expected — blame the COVID-19 pandemic for that — but 10 months after the Canyon AT4’s arrival, the special edition model, dubbed the Off-Road Performance Edition, is finally here.
As expected, the Canyon AT4 Off-Road Performance Edition packs plenty of extra goodies, most of which are of the functional sort. There are visual upgrades, too, but this special edition truck is all about making sure that your travails on roads less travelled run smoothly and without any complications.
First Video Review of the Hummer EV Reminds US That The Car Doesn’t Actually Exist
General Motors has recently unveiled the GMC Hummer EV, an all-electric revival of the iconic SUV and truck. But deliveries of the all-electric hauler won’t commence until late 2021 when the limited-edition and expensive Edition 1 trim rolls off the assembly line. The Hummer EV is still some 12 months away, but Emelia Hartford got her hands on one for a quick walkaround.
Engineering Explained Cracks Through GM’s Sketchy Hummer EV Torque Figure
GMC revealed the Hummer EV and let out a few details about the supertruck. In all honestly, it is quite impressive on paper, although it doesn’t offer the same value proposition as, say, the upcoming Cybertruck. This is on paper comparison given that we’ve seen none of these trucks in flesh. GMC announced that the Hummer EV, in the top trim, will make 1,000 horses and 11,500 pound-feet of torque. The torque took a lot of people by shock because it seems unrealistic. If you thought the same, well, you’re kinda right, because there is a catch to this figure.
The automaker announced the torque at wheels instead of the torque at motors, and the latter is way less. Jason Fenske from Engineering Explained broke down the math and concluded that the motor torque is around 1,000 pound-feet of torque. That’s quite a bit less in comparison, but it is not a minuscule number by any means and is on par with other gas- and diesel-powered heavy trucks on the market.
The Coolest Features of the 2022 GMC Hummer EV
At a time when people are a lot more concerned about the environment, if you tell people you own a gas guzzler like a Hummer, they will stare at you utter disdain. But, GMC is here to change that image of the otherwise much-adored moniker. The company brought back the nameplate from the ashes and slapped it on an electric vehicle without harming its credibility of being big and bulky.
The Hummer EV is a monster and is being marketed as a supertruck. The company has finally unveiled the truck, and although it might draw a lot of polarizing opinions, there’s no denying that it comes with some rather cool features. Whether or not they’re worth the six-digit figure is a different question, but here’s a list of some of them that left us impressed:
Apparently, People Really Don’t Mind Paying $112,00 for the Hummer EV Edition 1
General Motors just introduced the Hummer EV, an all-electric revival of the iconic hauler. The electric truck will enter production in the fall of 2021 with a limited-series Edition 1 model, with three regular trims to be added to the lineup from 2022 to 2024. Already available through $100 reservations, the Edition 1 sold out in just an hour.
Quick Comparison: GMC Hummer EV vs Tesla Cybertruck
Discontinued in 2010 after 18 years of the market, the Hummer nameplate returned in 2020. But this time around, it’s not a standalone brand, but a model sold under a GMC badge. The even bigger news is that it’s fully electric. Set to go into production in 2021, the truck version will go against the spectacular Tesla Cybertruck. But does it have what it takes to compete with Elon Musk’s oddly-shaped hauler? Is it powerful enough, does it have enough range, and is it actually a proper successor to the original Hummer design-wise? Let’s find out in the comparison below.
GM Really Missed the Mark With the GMC Hummer EV
Now that the GMC Hummer EV is here, I have to admit that it is, at the very least, somewhat worthy of the hype that led up to its debut. It is instantly recognizable as a Hummer and even has the upright windshield. It also seems to be very capable on-road and off. The performance specs, although advertised in a somewhat sketchy manner (more on this later) do position the Hummer EV in a place to really compete. But the there are a few things about the Hummer EV that rub me the wrong way, including the price, the wait for something somewhat affordable, and why I’m pretty sure the Hummer EV probably won’t deliver the sales performance that GM is expecting. Let me explain…
The 2022 GMC Hummer Is Billed As a SuperTruck, But Is It Really?
GM dropped a major bomb earlier this year when it announced the return of the buried moniker, the Hummer. However, what surprised folks even more was that Hummer, known to be a gas guzzler, was now being presented as a sober vehicle that doesn’t drink anymore. But, despite this opposite-end-of-the-spectrum reincarnation, what didn’t change was its monstrous size and the attention-grabbing persona.
The automaker unveiled a few teasers during the Superbowl earlier this year and had plans to reveal the supertruck sometime in May. But, courtesy of the pandemic, the plans went haywire. Now, the company has finally taken the wraps off this beast and given us a few details. So, is the GMC Hummer EV worth the hype?
GMC Hummer EV: What We Know So Far
The new Hummer EV got all the buzz since the day GMC announced it will be teasing the new “truck” in a Super Bowl commercial. There were a lot of rumors regarding the Hummer’s revival, but none of them provided enough information and details about this revival.
In fact, even GMC has revealed only three details about the Hummer so far – the horsepower, torque, and 0-60 mph figure. Was it enough to create an itch in our brains? Of course! GMC has been tight-lipped about pretty much everything, but we should be able to get some more information about the Hummer EV until it debuts on May 20, 2020. Here’s what we know so far.
2020 Hennessey Upgrades The 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 Harley-Davidson Edition By Tuscany
Earlier this year, Tuscany collaborated with Harley-Davidson to roll out a special edition GMC Sierra that was limited to just 250 examples. Around the same time, Hennessey had rolled out the GMC Sierra Denali Goliath 700. The truck came with 700 horses under the hood and transformed the simple Sierra into a magnificent beast. But, how do you combine the finesse of a Harley-Davidson edition truck and the performance of a Hennessey product? Well, you get them together!
An individual purchased the Harley-Davidson Sierra and took it to Hennessey for a performance upgrade. As the team says in the video, is this the Harley for a rainy day?
GMC’s Hummer EV "Crabwalk" Sounds Dumb But Could Be Awesome
The return of the Hummer, even in EV form, has the truck world alight. The hype is real, folks, and the buzz is about to get even louder now that General Motors has unveiled one of the Hummer EV’s most unique features: the crab walk. No, this isn’t some kind of dance move that the Hummer EV is capable of doing; it’s actually a real feature that allows the hulking electric truck to move diagonally. Yes, diagonally. The crab walk is one of many new features that’s included in the Hummer EV. All of it is part of GMC’s strategy to reinvent the Hummer’s image from being one of the loudest and thirstiest gas-guzzlers in the land to a muted and electric whizzing truck that’s apparently capable of crab walking its way out of potential hazards.
GMC’s Latest Teaser Video Gives Us a Decent Look at the Hummer EV
Apart from the Bronco, there was another nameplate set to make a return this year – the Hummer. GMC even played out commercials at the Superbowl announcing a 20 May 2020 debut, but that didn’t happen due to the pandemic. Now, the company has announced that the Hummer will debut later this fall. The production of the electric super truck will begin in the fall of 2021.
Check out some awesome detail screenshots from the video at the bottom of this page!
GM Just Revealed a Removable Roof For the Hummer EV That Doesn’t Exist
May 20, 2020. This was the day GM was supposed to reveal the exciting new 2022 Hummer electric pickup truck. But, courtesy of the pandemic, the launch is inevitably delayed. However, GM decided to tease enthusiasts and reveal a key detail that just made the Hummer a lot more desirable.
The automaker released a short video clip that shows the Hummer electric pickup truck with the roof panels removed. Well, didn’t see that one coming, did you?
GMC Reveals The 2021 Canyon Denali’s ’Heroic Grille’
GMC is finally getting out of Chevy’s shadow. Earlier this year, the company revealed that the brand’s mid-size pickup truck, Canyon, will receiving an AT4 trim. Now, the company has revealed that the refreshed truck’s top Denali will receive a new grille which it calls the ‘Heroic grille’ for some reason. The new grille is a tad bit larger than the one on the outgoing Canyon Denali, but thanks to the new design, it gives the truck a premium feel. Not bad, right?
This Is What The 2022 Hummer EV’s Logo Looks Like
The Hummer EV is still a long time away, but here’s a new bit of information. GMC has filed for a new Hummer logo with the U.S. Patents and Trademarks Office. It still spells out “HUMMER”, but the font is different and fresh.
Along with this, GMC sent a second application as well, requesting the “Hummer” brand name to various applications. There was one application filed with the Canadian Intellectual Property Office as well. Although things seem to progress with the reincarnated brand, when will the truck itself be revealed, GM?
2020 GMC Sierra Denali Goliath 700 by Hennessey
When you hear the name “Hennessey” suffixed to any vehicle, you know it’s going to be a monster in all senses. The company has been transforming SUVs, sedans, and pickup trucks from nimble creatures into absolute beasts since the early ‘90s. Let’s say Hennessey drops massive amounts of gamma radiations into every vehicle to create Hulk versions of them.
The company already deals with the Raptor, Mustang, F-150, and GT, and will soon be adding the 2020 Bronco as well to its portfolio. The company even laid its hands on the Jeep Gladiator and plonked in a Hellcat engine to create a “Maximus” version that makes 1,000 horses. This time around, Hennessey has gotten hold of the GMC Sierra Denali.The power bumps are significant and it looks mighty big with the new raised stance. The company has moniker’d it the Goliath 700. It makes sense, doesn’t it?
The GMC Hummer EV Will Be Offered With Three All-Electric Powertrain Choices
The GMC Hummer EV was announced last week and it has pretty much been in the news ever since. The company has been tight-lipped about it and hasn’t released much information on it yet. So far, all we’ve learned are horsepower, torque, and 0-60 mph figures.
Now, however, some more information about the powertrain options has come to light. The GMC Hummer will be offered with three powertrain options. This is good news because this way, GMC will most likely cover a broader spectrum instead of solely catering to high-power enthusiasts.
Hummer Is Making A Comeback With a 1,000 Horsepower Electric Truck!
After being defunct for a decade now, the Hummer moniker is making a comeback; this time under GMC’s umbrella as an EV. The rumors of the Hummer-revival were surfacing the internet for quite some time, and now the company has confirmed the same. GMC has announced that it will debut the Hummer EV truck on May 20, 2020. However, the company will be airing a 30-second commercial during the Superbowl; during the second quarter of the game, to be precise. How exciting is this?!
2021 GMC Yukon
What do we have here? Fresh off the debut of the all-new Chevy Tahoe and Suburban, GMC has launched the more upscale Yukon and Yukon XL. Right away, we have to give GMC credit for making such a bold statement in a world where any SUV that’s going to succeed stands out. The new Yukon comes with a larger footprint, more third-row legroom, an updated engine lineup, and more upscale materials inside. Can it finally compete in the premium segment that it was meant for?
GMC Ups The Ante By Introducing The Off-Road AT4 Trim for The 2020 Canyon
It looks like General Motors has decided to stop letting GMC play the second fiddle to Chevrolet’s offerings. The company has finally decided to let Robin get his own batmobile (Robmobile?!). GMC’s mid-size pickup truck, the Canyon, will be receiving an AT4 trim. The AT4 will be replacing the All Terrain trim in the Canyon’s portfolio, thus refreshing and hopefully boosting the sales of the pickup truck’s off-road version. As a bonus, the Denali trim also receives some new additions. It looks like a positive start of the year for GMC.
The 2020 Sierra AT4 Comes With Stronger Off-Road Specs, But Can It Beat The Ram Power Wagon In Its Own Yard?
The Ram Power Wagon has proved its mettle as the ultimate off-road truck many times before. However, there’s another contender – an unlikely one, too - that has the potential to give it a run for its money: meet the GMC Sierra AT4.
The GMC Sierra, despite its intimidating size and structure, is known for its luxuriousness and towing prowess. But the folks at TFL decided to pit the two against each other to see how the underdog performs out of its comfort zone. Do you think the Sierra AT4 can take down the Ram Power Wagon?
