Now that the 2022 GMC Hummer EV has made its official debut, we’re starting to get a better idea of how General Motors has divided up the lineup. The electric pickup truck will be released one trim level at a time, starting with the range-topping Edition 1 next fall. Since we’ve already covered the most exclusive (and fully reserved) Edition 1, it’s time to give some focus to the Hummer EV3X.
The GMC Hummer EV3X is slated to arrive in the fall of 2022, at which point it will take over as the range-topping truck. The truck will utilize a 24-module, double-stacked Ultium battery propulsion pack, which will be mated to three motors in this case. The total output is 800 horsepower and 9,500 lb-ft of torque, a bit of a step down from the Edition 1. However, the EV3X models promise to still provide over 300 miles of range per charge, and is 800-Volt DC Fast Charge Capable. That all while riding on 22-inch premium wheels wrapped in 35-inch rubber.
That power will be sent through the Hummer’s new e4WD system, which includes an electronically locking differential in the front, and torque vectoring in the rear. That torque vectoring combined with 4-wheel steering allows the Hummer to do its ultimate party trick: CrabWalk mode. This of course allows the truck to rotate on a tight axis, making it possible to rotate the truck without moving forwards or backwards. The truck also features GM’s Adaptive Ride Control, as well as a new Extract Mode feature. When presented with some particularly nasty terrain, this mode allows the suspension to raise as much as six inches.
The Hummer EV3X is also quite the luxurious pickup. The interior is slated to match the quality found in GMC’s Denali models, and may even encroach on the all-mighty Escalade. The Infinity Roof and its Sky Panels can be removed and stored in the frunk for an open-air off-roading experience. There are even some practical touches as well, such as the rear drop glass and
GMC’s MultiPro Tailgate.
Premium materials aside, this truck is packed with a lot of tech like any proper EV. The truck comes with a 12.3-inch display in place of the gauges, as well as a massive 13.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system. The latest version of the Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving software is also included with the package. GMC has even added a digital key option, which is in line with one Californian automaker. For off-road fans, the Hummer features the new HD Surround Vision feature, which uses live-feed underbody cameras to help you avoid obstacles.
The 2022 GMC Hummer EV3X is not going to be a cheap vehicle. The MSRP sits at $99,995, and that’s before you start tracking options on. That said, this isn’t an egregious price for the amount of new content (and development costs) that went into this truck. Reservations for the pickup are open now, with GMC requiring buyers to lay down a fully-refundable $100 deposit. One can only wonder where they got that number from.
