GMC Hummer’s revival is at hand thanks in part to another industry shift. This time it is so electric propulsion. Yes, it’s expensive but it’s still huge and the numbers are really eye-popping to the tune of 1,000 horsepower. Moreover, America does love a comeback. Yet it loves trucks more.
GMC Hummer Testing
The 2022 GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 truck at the GM Proving Grounds is 40 miles northwest of Detroit. Hummers are going to start rolling off the line at GM’s EV site which is dubbing Factory Zero, in the Motor City. This will be weeks from now.
GM is leading with the pickup. Yes the Hummer SUV is definitely proving its worth. It is calling a super truck. The Hummer is eagerly touting its metrics and generating features that include CrabWalk. It is against the Rivian R1T, Ford F-150 Lightning, Tesla Cybertruck, as well as gas-powered off-roaders like the Ford F-150 Raptor and Ram 1500 TRX, in addition to many Jeep and Land Rover SUVs.
Hummer is Formiable
In fact, the Hummer is formidable in its own right. Well, for one thing, it’s a Hummer. Moreover, the negative connotations of the old Hummers melt away. That is when there’s a 24-module Ultium battery pack that powers three motors for a range of 350-plus miles on a single charge. The old model was set apart, but a lot of people paid a lot of money for them just because they are looking very good.
In fact, Hummer’s familiar grille does make it a bold return on the tester which looms high on its 35-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory MT tires. Moreover, it does look like the part of a super truck. In fact, the cabin is roomy and airy. It comes with removable sky panels thus letting in the bright fall morning.
