The Debut Is Just 13 Days Away

The 2022 GMC Hummer EV reveal is right around the corner, and for real this time. Originally planned for the end of May at the Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly plant, where it’s going to be built, the COVID-19 pandemic forced General Motors to come up with a more physically distant solution to reveal the vehicle. What we’re getting is a virtual reveal online, not unlike how we were treated to debut of the 2021 Ford Bronco. And it’s not like any hype was lost from how that was done.

GMC officially announced last month that the Hummer EV reveal will take place TODAY on October 20. And today, more details were revealed. Viewers can catch the GMC Hummer EV reveal at 8:00 PM ET during Game 1 of the 2020 MLB World Series on Fox, and on NBC’s The Voice that same evening. And of course, everybody with internet can catch it on YouTube at that same time. The caption on YouTube reads as follows:

Are you ready for the Quiet Revolution? Experience the world premiere of the all-electric, zero emissions GMC HUMMER EV on 10.20.20 @ 8pm ET and reserve one for yourself.

While there’s bound to be a teaser or two between now and then, we’ve already been treated to quite a few. Such as its innovated Crab Mode capabilities. Specifically catered to off-road customers, this mode allows the truck’s four-wheel steering system to move the vehicle diagonally. GMC also teased an Adrenaline Mode, which we imagine could be something akin to Tesla’s Ludicrous Mode. With as much as 1,000 horsepower and 11,500 ft-lb of torque, it’s entirely possible.

Power of the 2022 GMC Hummer EV is provided by an 800-volt Ultium battery pack with 350-kWh fast-charging capability, which could give the truck as much as 400 miles of range on a single charge.

The 2022 Hummer EV will be sold exclusively by GMC dealers – hence the loose branding affiliation that goes with it. It’s expected to come in single, dual and tri-motor configurations, with the tri-motor providing 1,000 horsepower and a 0-60 time of just three seconds. The vehicle will also have removable doors, modular removable roof panels, and the ability to charge its batteries up to 90 percent in 10 minutes. It will also come in both pickup truck and SUV forms, and it will have a frunk.

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.
