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?
The long-awaited GMC Hummer EV has finally made it’s debut, and it comes to the party with a lot of noteworthy features and some pretty impressive performance. According to GMC, the new Hummer EV will be power by (and as expected) GM’s new Ultium batteries and the new Ultium Drive electronic motors. The Hummer will feature a total of three electric motors that, according to GMC, will deliver and impressive 1,000 horsepower and a “GM-estimated 11,500 pound-feet of torque.” It all reality, it’ll probably put close to 900 pound-feet to the ground, but we’ll leave that discussion for another time. GMC has offered up some pricing and trim information with the entry-level model commanding $79,995, but it comes with just two electric motors. It’ll be coined the “EV2” and will launch in spring of 2024. It will be preceded by the EV2x in 2023 (the lowest model that can do the CrabWalk) and the Hummer EV3X, which will be available in Fall of 2020 with a $99,995 price tag.

Watch out, Bollinger: GM is Bringing Back the Hummer as an Electric Car
Rumors about an all-electric version of the Hummer have been soaring over the internet for a while, but it looks like they will finally come to fruition thanks to GM.
According to a report concocted by The Wall Street Journal, General Motors will breathe life into the discontinued Hummer nameplate as it wants to place it on a new electric pickup truck.
The 2019 RAM 1500 Fires Back at GMC’s Multipro Tailgate With Something Simple And Useful
The more utility you can add to a pickup, the better it becomes. That’s a given, but how do you improve on the formula? It seems as though GMC found a way with its Multipro Tailgate and 2019 Sierra, which offers multiple configurations for improved access to the box, extended holding capacity, and a second-tier loading height. Now Ram is getting in on the action with its own take on the configurable tailgate concept, offering up something it’s calling the Multifunction Tailgate on all seven trim levels of the 2019 Ram 1500. Granted, GMC was the first in this space, but we think Ram might have the better tailgate this time around.
2019 GMC Sierra Elevation
GMC has introduced the Sierra Elevation, a new trim level of the Sierra that will sit between the ALT and AT4 offering customers a rugged pickup with a shot of off-road chops to go with it. The Sierra Elevation will get a host of exclusive digs to complete its status, all of which are being included to infuse the pickup with a commanding look to go with natural truck capabilities and functionality that all Sierra pickups are known for.
GMC just recent debuted the GMC Sierra AT4, which is essentially a luxurious, go-almost-anywhere pickup truck. It’s not exactly a competitor for vehicles like the Ford F-150 Raptor or the Toyota Tundra TRD Pro, but it’s the most capable truck to ever wear a GMC badge to date. As such, it’s worthy of a weekend on your desktop, so go ahead and download that wallpaper, if you’re a truck guy. If not, you can check out our wallpaper selections for the Volkswagen Touareg, Honda Civic Type R, or the Porsche Macan GTS!
The 2017 GMC Sierra 2500HD All Terrain X Mixes Off-Road Prowress with 910 Pound-Feet of Torque
With gasoline prices fairly reasonable, it’s no surprise that we Americans began to flock back to larger SUVs and Crossovers. Joining models like the F-150 Raptor, Ram Power Wagon, and the Canyon and Sierra All-Terrain X cousins, is the new GMC Sierra 2500HD All Terrain X, and boy is it a doozy. As the third model in GM’s All Terrain X series, the 2500 HD All Terrain X can be had with either a 6.0-liter Gasoline mill or a 6.6-liter Duramax Turbo Diesel. That Duramax, by the way, pumps out a whopping 445 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of rock climbing, off-road awesomeness.
Duncan Aldred, the Vice President of GMC Sales and Marketing, said,” The new Sierra HD All Terrain X’s powerful attitude reflects a popular trend in very capable off-road trucks, executed with a range-topping level of refinement — a combination of attributes GMC has cultivated for years. And with the new, available Duramax 6.6L, this truck more than matches its bold good looks with true professional-grade capability.”
Outside of the insane and segment-topping output afforded by the 2017 Sierra HD All Terrain X, it also comes with an awesome, customized appearance to give it that sinister off-road look that every truck guy loves these days. Staying true to the off-road market, the newest All Terrain X rides on, black-painted, 18-inch wheels wrapped in 275/65-series Duratrac MT-rated tires that have an aggressive tread layout. It also gets black exterior mirrors, body colored door handles and radiator grille surround, four-inch sport side steps, and a black sport bar in the rear. To complete its off-road look, the bed comes standard with a spray-on bed liner, and there’s a Z71 off-road suspension package to go with an underbody shield and an Eaton automatic locking rear differential.
Needless to say, this beast is ready to go off-road, or tear your ex-wife’s house down – you know, whichever you prefer.
