The GMC Hummer EV Is Coming in With a Song and Dance

If there is one thing we know about the 2022 GMC Hummer EV, it will make a lively entrance. The new GMC Hummer truck could put on it’s dancing shows as it makes its debut on stage in front of a live audience.

The General Motors’ Hummer will make its debut in a huge way, with a prime-time multi-platform display. The 2022 Hummer EV will be reintroduced to the American public during The Voice and the World Series.

You can find the live debut across multiple TV channels, but due to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the event will only be streamed online. The Hummer will hopefully make a splash as the Ford Bronco did. 

During the World Series on Fox and The Voice on NBC, segments of the new Hummer EV will be spread out across commercial breaks, like a miniature film. So, instead of skipping the commercials, remember to stay seated to see what GM has up their sleeves. 

What do we know about the 2022 Hummer EV? 

GMC has been keeping the 2022 Hummer EV under wraps, but we know that an SUV and Hummer truck is on the way from teasers. Instead of being a gas-guzzling beast, the new Hummer is all-electric and won’t sip a single drop of gas.

We’re ready to see why GMC is calling it the world’s first super truck. According to AutoBlog, the Hummer EV boasts having over 1,000 hp, 11,500 lb-ft of torque, and should be able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3 seconds. So, it should have a lot of towing power. 

To compete with rivals such as the Tesla Cyber Truck and Rivian R1t, the Hummer EV will need a towing capacity between 7,00 to 11,000 lb. However, the 2021 Ford F-150, which still drinks gasoline, can tow up to 14,000 lb. Also, the Hummer EV will need to carry a payload of between 1,500 to 3,500 lb.

The Hummer EV SUT will ride on the third-generation EV platform. It will have an 800-volt architecture with a 350-kWh fast charging capability, according to CarandDriver. This potentially indicates that the Hummer EV could have a driving range of up to 400 miles, which is pretty great. 

What features does the 2022 Hummer EV have? 

Unfortunately, hardly any information has been revealed, tested, or confirmed for the Hummer EV yet. So, we don’t know much aside from the fact that it will have a crab mode. The crab mode is a unique off-roading feature that other trucks lack.

By using crab mode, the Hummer EV can move from side to side, like a crab. This is to increase maneuverability while off-roading. It should help drivers clear obstacles. However, we would like to test it on the road to see if crab mode is the perfect way to slide in a parallel parking space. 

The interior of the Hummer EV should be modern and luxurious. We expect two spacious rows filled with leather and soft-touch material. We hope to see innovative storage bins throughout the cabin and practical touches. Perhaps the Hummer EV will also have 7 screens, like the Jeep Grand Wagoneer. It should also have Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a wireless charger, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and more.
