GMC has revealed the SUV version of the Hummer EV pickup truck, scheduled to go on sale in early 2023 as a 2024 model, with prices starting at US$ 79,995. However, as with the pickup truck, the entry-level model is available only from spring 2024. The Edition 1 models are the first to be available –
At the time of publishing this story, GMC’s official website claimed the Edition 1 reservations to be full. However, it remains to be seen how many of those pre-orders get converted into actual sales because the reservation fee is refundable if canceled prior to completing the purchase process.
The Hummer EV SUV looks pretty similar to its pickup sibling from most angles, naturally, except that it doesn’t get a bed, obviously. As a result, the SUV is a bit shorter in length with a shorter wheelbase compared to the pickup, which should theoretically make it a better off-roader. As the photos showcase, the roof here is modular too.
The optional Extreme Off-Road package gets you 18-inch wheels wrapped with 35-inch mud-terrain tyres; underbody armor and rock sliders; front eLocker and virtual rear lockers; heavy-duty ball-spline half shafts; UltraVision with underbody camera views and more.
The cabin looks fairly identical to the pickup and so are the features including a 13.4-inch infotainment display, a 12.3-inch driver display, 14-speaker Bose audio system, and Super Cruise. Features such as CrabWalk and Extract Mode that debuted with the pickup, are also available in the SUV.
As for the juicy bits, the options are similar to the pickup. The base models with two electric motors offer an estimated 466 kW (633 metric hp/625 bhp) and 10,033 Nm (7,400 lb-ft) of wheel torque. The variants with three electric motors offer an estimated 619 kW (842 metric hp/830 bhp) and 15,592 Nm (11,500 lb-ft) of wheel torque; compared to the pickup with three electric motors, there’s a significant increase here.
GMC claims a range between 402+ km (250+ mi) to 483+ km (300+ mi), depending on the variant.
