Not only have reservations for the GMC Hummer EV pickup truck and SUV family reached 90,000 reservations, but the brand has gone ahead and closed the books on customer reservations. GMC is currently evaluating when/if Hummer EV reservations will open back up in the future. While production volume and timing remains undisclosed, GMC tells me that order banks are filled up to 2024.

GMC Hummer EV: Details

GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 pickup truck deliveries “officially” began with just a few days to spare at the end of the 2021 calendar year. 371 deliveries took place in the first half of 2022, each one of these electric super trucks priced over $112,000 USD. 0-60 is registered at a scant 3.0 seconds when engaged in Watts To Freedom (WTF) mode.

The 1,000 horsepower GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 pickup truck, classified as a DOT Class 2b vehicle with the GMC Sierra 2500 HD based on its gross vehicle weight rating, is currently rated to carry 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.

Further GMC Hummer EV variants will all slot under the Edition 1, and include the upcoming EV3X, EV2X, and EV2. The EV2 will be the most affordable trim level, but isn’t expected to arrive until at least late next year as a 2024 model year vehicle.

The GMC Hummer EV SUV Edition 1fully reserved – is also scheduled to launch in fall of 2023 as a 2024 model year vehicle. While the SUV is still a bit out, it’s predicted that the SUV variant will eventually outsell the pickup truck. All GMC Hummer EV variants will be built at the GM Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly plant, which has been rebranded as “Factory Zero” as part of a record $2 billion renovation.

Recently, GMC announced that “Extract Mode” is now available via OTA update to the Hummer EV, which raises the vehicle several inches to improve ground clearance and to better conquer obstacles. Meanwhile, the United States Army is currently evaluating the Hummer EV for official use, while the electric truck will continue its military pedigree as it will be available in the upcoming Call of Duty video game. The Hummer EV lineup also received a recent price adjustment, as even a truck this expensive can’t seem to escape widespread inflation and record commodity pricing.

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.
