GMC has announced this morning that the 2022 Hummer EV reveal will now take place in the fall, although further details have yet to be shared. However, along with the announcement came an extended cut version of the Super Bowl ad featuring LeBron James from earlier this year. In the video, GMC teased several features of the Hummer EV, as well as silhouettes of both the pickup truck and SUV version. The company, while taking the time to brand its roof panels, touts the Hummer EV as the world’s first “super truck.” Since it’s going to offer 1,000 horsepower from the factory, it’s hard to argue this.
Following trends – customers will also be able to reserve the 2022 Hummer EV when it debuts later this year.
But wait, there’s more. The 2022 Hummer EV will debut with various driving modes, such as Adrenaline Mode and Crab Mode. Judging by their names, it would be safe to say that Adrenaline Mode is meant to rival the Ludicrous Mode that will be found in the Cybertruck and other Tesla products. Meanwhile, Crab Mode could be meant for off road, and could be a party truck for the reborn Hummer, such as what Rivian has with its Tank Turn feature. GMC also confirms that the Hummer EV pickup truck and SUV will come with General Motors‘ next-generation Super Cruise semi autonomous system, and “Ultra-Vision” cameras, which we image will come in handy when it comes to rock crawling.
Whenever, where ever and however its revealed, the 2022 Hummer EV will come in single, dual and tri-motor setup. The most powerful of which will be powered by an 800 volt Ultium battery pack capable of 350 kilowatt DC fast charging. Total output on the range-topping Hummer EV is said to be 1,000 HP and (a dubious) 11,500 lb-ft of torque. This configuration is expected to achieve a 0-60 time in only 3.0 seconds – which is supercar quick. It’s expected to be priced at, if not near, $100,000.
