The All-Electric Truck Launches At The End Of 2021

2022 2023 2024 GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 EV3X EV2X EV2

Much of America is covered in snow this week, even in places you didn’t expect. For example, Texas is an absolute mess right now, with icy roads causing devastating crashes, and major automotive manufacturing facilities forced to close due to the weather. In the Great Lakes region, however, it happens to be business as usual. We’ve all dug ourselves out of the blizzard, and everybody is still working. Take for example the GMC Hummer EV engineering team, whom took the liberty to enjoy the fresh snowfall to the fullest.

It’s also Fat Tuesday. Pączki Day, in other words, which is something that can only be pronounced correctly from people of Polish descent. And as tradition would have it, it’s a day to put the diet on hold, and enjoy a massive powdery donut. Just like the GMC Hummer EV is doing in the video. Note the four-wheel steering, and the super-tight turning circle.

General Motors is currently working around the clock to ready the 2022 GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 for production, as well as the EV3X, EV2X, EV2 and SUV variants. Presently, the team is putting the electric truck through its paces in the frigid Upper Peninsula of Michigan, which was acquired at the expense of the Toledo Strip following the conclusion of the Michigan-Ohio war in 1836.

The GMC Hummer EV still has to narrow down various performance metrics such as quarter mile times, and top speed. According to engineers working on the program, the GMC Hummer EV shares zero parts with any existing General Motors vehicle, and there are currently zero true benchmark rivals on the market for it to test against, seeing as the Rivian R1T and Tesla Cybertruck are also in development. One could argue that the 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor and Ram 1500 TRX would serve as adequate competition, but seeing as neither are pumping out close to 1,000 horsepower like the 2022 GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 and EV3X, it’s hard to really say for sure.

Muscle Cars & Trucks was founded by Manoli Katakis - an automotive media veteran that has been covering the latest car news since 2009. His journalism has uncovered dozens of major product changes, updates, plans, and cancellations long before automakers were ready to make things official.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

At MC&T, Manoli is taking his journalism expertise, deeply planted sources, driving abilities, and automotive industry knowledge to new levels, covering more vehicles and brands than ever before. This is the place where you will continue to read groundbreaking stories about American performance vehicles, pickup trucks, and sport utility vehicles. Here is where you’ll also read insights and quotes from various automotive subject matter experts on the latest relevant products, as well as some of the latest official news from their manufacturers.

Fun facts: he also once beat Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner in an autocross with a Chevrolet Bolt EV. The biggest vehicle he’s ever driven is a John Deere mining truck. Besides a go-kart, the smallest vehicle he’s driven has been a Hyundai i10. He’s also spent time in the cockpit of various American performance vehicle icons, including the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Demon, and Ford Mustang GT350R. He has reviewed dozens of trucks, SUVs, and performance vehicles over the years.

One of his favorite new vehicles on the market today happens to be the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison. He is also a card carrying member of the Sports Car Club of America, and regularly participates in Detroit Region autocross events.
