HUMMER EV EDITION 1 RANGE: 329 MILES, 1300 LBS PAYLOAD, 7500 LBS TOWING

The Range Is Impressive For A 9,000 Pound Truck

Being a DOT Class 2B truck, General Motors doesn’t have to legally disclose the range of the Hummer EV if they don’t want to. But they want to. And today, that number becomes official. The 2022 Hummer EV Edition 1 range is estimated by the EPA at 329 miles, beating the Rivian R1T, as well as the anticipated range of the Ford F-150 Lightning.

Why isn’t it, say an even 350 miles? It could be because the Hummer EV Edition 1 comes with the Extreme Off-Road Package, which adds the extra weight of full underbody skid plates, rocker panels, as well as the added rolling resistance from top-of-the-line tires: the Goodyear Wrangler Territory MT, coming in at 35 inches in diameter. If customers so choose, they can apply 37-inch tires without any compromise to the integrated air suspension,  further maximizing the off-road capabilities of the all-electric Hummer.

2022 GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 Max Payload, Towing

In addition to the Hummer EV range announcement, GMC Vice President Duncan Aldred also disclosed payload and towing figures for the truck. The 2022 GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 payload comes in at 1,300 pounds, while towing comes in at 7,500 pounds. Those are about the figures of a GMC Canyon midsize truck, but we’re told these numbers are coming in as “conservative” and future variants are expected to provide more capability in this space.

But payload and towing aren’t meant to grab the headlines for the new Hummer EV Edition 1. Instead, we see absurdly quick levels of performance, with this 9,000 pound truck capable of rocking from 0-60 in a scant 3.0 seconds in WTF Mode. That’s good enough to walk a 650 horsepower Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 by more than half a second. Like we said, absurd.

Though the official GMC website, customers could reserve the Hummer EV Edition 1, which starts at $112,595 USD. Coming with all of the bells and whistles, there aren’t many add-ons for this fully loaded electric pickup truck. However, there are over 200 accessories to choose from, and GMC had quite a few of these on display during the 2021 SEMA Show earlier this month.

Beyond the Edition 1, other trim levels of the Hummer EV include the EV2 (priced at $79,995, available from Spring 2024), the Hummer EV2X (priced at $89,995, available from Spring 2023), and the Hummer EV3X (priced at $99,995, available Fall 2022).

The Hummer EV SUV will arrive in 2023 as a 2024 model year vehicle.

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.
