Amid the financial crisis that rocked the automotive world, General Motors shuttered the Hummer brand in 2010. Despite closing production, GM retained the rights to the Hummer name. Now GM teased Hummer’s return as a pickup, and now we have all the details on the all-new 2022 GMC HUMMER EV.
On the outside, the 2022 GMC HUMMER EV shows it’ll be more than just a name with a blocky, upright, and rugged look that will hark back to the Hummers of yesteryear. It’ll boast a wide headlight-to-headlight grille emblazoned with a “HUMMER” and backlighting to make it stand out at night. Flanking this grille will be unique H-shaped LED headlights, while a rugged front bumper with a skid plate angle toward the underside of the truck to help with the approach angle. Down the sides, ridged body lines, flared wheel wells, and chunky body cladding will show off its ruggedness. Around back, the HUMMER EV will feature equally unique taillights in an “H” pattern and with an etched HUMMER EV logo, and a six-function MultiPro Tailgate.
Inside, the upright look and feel will carry on with the 2022 GMC HUMMER EV’s squared-off dash, squared steering wheel center and posts, and other blocky accents throughout. Look skyward, and you’ll find an available removable roof. And with its relatively roomy second row, the GMC HUMMER EV will be able to haul up to five passengers. Some of the feature highlights will include a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, a 13.4-inch infotainment touchscreen, and more.
The HUMMER EV will debut with its Edition 1 variant, which will boast a three-motor drivetrain that’ll pump out a mind-blowing 1,000 horsepower and 11,500 pound-feet of torque through all four wheels. This will result in a 0-60 sprint in as little as three seconds.
The Edition 1 will also boast crabwalk to drive diagonally and avoid obstacles, an air suspension, Terrain Mode, and more to give it superior off-road chops.
There will be other variants in the future, ranging from the base EV2 model with 625 hp and 7,400 lb-ft of torque to the EV3X model with 800 hp and 9,500 lb-ft of torque.
The 2022 HUMMER EV Edition 1 will include an Ultium-cell battery with 24-modules that’ll deliver over 350 miles of range, according the GMC estimates. This rugged pickup will also take charge from cutting-edge 350-kW DC charging stations and switch between 400- and 800-volt charging. This will give it 100 miles of driving range in just 10 minutes.
The future variants won’t be quite as advanced, as the base HUMMER EV2 will travel 250 miles on a charge and can only handle a 400-volt DC fast charge. The HUMMER EV2X and EV3X will both travel over 300 miles on a charge and support 800-volt charging.
In the safety department, GMC gave limited information. Still, it announced the HUMMER EV Edition 1 will include the latest Super Cruise technology, which features semi-autonomous driving, including lane changing, on over 200,000 miles of roads. We expect automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitors, and other features to come standard too, but this remains unconfirmed.
