Engineering Explained Cracks Through GM's Sketchy Hummer EV Torque Figure

Engineering Explained Cracks Through GM’s Sketchy Hummer EV Torque Figure

11,500 pound-feet is the wheel torque; the motor torque is less than 10-percent of that 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

The Coolest Features of the 2022 GMC Hummer EV

If you ignore the price shock for a while, the stuff offered on the Hummer EV is actually pretty cool!

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

The GMC Hummer EV is off to a cool start, but does this mean it will be successful?

GM Really Missed the Mark With the GMC Hummer EV

GM Really Missed the Mark With the GMC Hummer EV

I Wouldn’t Go So Far As to Say I Hate the Hummer EV, But It’s Not What GM Needed

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…

2022 GMC Hummer EV - Highlights and Photo Gallery

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.

Check out the highlights and gallery below to learn more about the Hummer EV and see just what it looks like!

GMC Hummer EV: What We Know So Far

GMC Hummer EV: What We Know So Far

Here’s the essential info with some speculation on the side

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.

This right here, ladies and gentlemen, is the GMC Syclone in all its glory

The GMC Syclone is undoubtedly one of the most bonkers cars ever built by GM. It could whoop a Ferrari’s ass in a straight-line race back in 1991 and just under 3,000 units were produced, all painted black - except for the Marlboro Editions, which were red and white.

In case the Syclone still has the power to unearth some nostalgia for you, here’s a video that will refresh your knowledge on the performance pickup truck.

SVE is back with the second edition of the modern-day Syclone; this time with 750 horses under the hood!

We’ve been seeing a lot of revived monikers lately, so why not add one more to the list? This one, however, is revived by an aftermarket company and not the automaker itself.

Specialty Vehicles Engineering, an aftermarket company based out of New Jersey, brought the Syclone badge back last year, and now it is following up with the 2021 model.

The 2021 Syclone is based on the 2021 GMC Canyon.The highlight of the 2021 Syclone is that it has 300 horses more than its predecessor, the 2019 GMC Syclone. We’re talking about 750 horses in a compact truck with a variety of other upgrades and a moniker that set the path to change the course of how trucks are generally viewed. Need we say anything more?
