The various driving modes of Crab Walk Mode, Extract Mode, and Watts to Freedom make the electric Hummer one of the most incredible vehicles. Soon, the 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV will give us a second version of this impressive electric vehicle. What does this new SUV model give us? Let’s find out.
What’s the cool new feature of the 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV?
One of the most noteworthy features of this new electric Hummer SUV is the power-operated swing gate. According to GM Authority, this feature adds a higher degree of utility to give drivers a great way to retrieve items stored in the cargo hold.
The power-operated swing gate is included as standard equipment of the entire range for this new GMC Hummer EV SUV. The gate is programmable, allowing consumers to set the opening distance to ensure the gate doesn’t fully open in tight parking spaces or inside a garage.
Is this power-operated swing gate different from the tailgate of the Hummer EV truck?
Yes, the tailgate of the GMC Hummer EV pickup truck is a manually-operated MultiPro tailgate with six functions and EZ Lift operation. The new swing gate for the SUV offers power operation and swings to the side to ensure easier use.
The Hummer EV SUV stands high off the ground, which means it could be hard for shorter drivers to reach up and close the gate. This factor makes offering it as a power feature and a side-opening item more useful for more drivers.
Is this Hummer EV a seven-seater?
The SUV version of the Hummer EV is a five-passenger vehicle with a similar seating layout to the pickup version. This setup allows the electric Hummer SUV to offer up to 81.8 cubic feet of cargo space, which is more than enough to give you the desired cargo space inside the cabin.
If you’ve got passengers in the second row, the cargo room is still impressive. This area measures 35.9 cubic feet of space for your gear. This should be enough room for the stuff you want to take on the trails in this electric off-road SUV.
What is the driving range of the Hummer EV SUV?
The 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV Edition 1 has three electric motors producing 1,000 horsepower. This trim also offers up to 329 miles of driving range. This version of the Hummer SUV comes with the Extreme Off-Road package, which includes:
- 35-inch mud-terrain tires
- Skid plates
- Rock sliders
How long is the wait for a Hummer EV?
The truck and SUV versions of the GMC Hummer EV are sold out for the next two years. Even if you put in a reservation today, you might not take delivery of your new electric off-road truck or SUV until 2024 or 2025. The desire for high-end, high-performance electric vehicles is incredible, causing the electric Hummer models to sell out quickly.
The new power-operated swing gate for the 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV gives us a classic rear hatch with the benefits of power operation and programmable opening settings. This could make the rear of this electric SUV extremely useful to anyone driving this incredible new off-road vehicle.
