HUMMER EV SUV TEASED DURING BARCLAYS AUTO CONFERENCE PRESENTATION

We Now Know What The Upcoming GMC Hummer EV SUV Will Look Like

HUMMER EV SUV GM Barclays Automotive Conference Doug Parks

General Motors just concluded in detailing its future electric vehicle product strategy during a live webcast that’s the 2020 Barclays Global Automotive Conference. And behind Doug Parks, GM Executive Vice President, Global Product Development, Purchasing and Supply Chain was our first official look at the upcoming GMC Hummer EV SUV.

The future product remained static in the background of GM executives alongside what’s presumed to be a Chevrolet Silverado EV, and the upcoming Bolt EUV.

The best angle we could get of this upcoming electric utility vehicle was what you see above. And essentially, the SUV version bares the same rear quarter has the Hummer EV pickup, albeit with windows enclosing the empty space above the bed. It’s likely that the Hummer EV SUV will have three rows of seats. And while it wasn’t visible from the front, an earlier silhouette teaser of the electric SUV depicts a full-size spare in the back.

In the past, the Hummer H2 SUV also carried a full spare, which was attached to a horizontally-swinging mount. The liftgate itself swung upwards. Meanwhile, the Hummer H3 had a barn-door style rear hatch, like the 2021 Ford Bronco.

As made clear last month, production of the 2022 Hummer EV Edition 1 will begin production by fall 2021 at GM’s “Factory Zero” in Detroit-Hamtramck, Michigan. Following the initial rollout of the three-motor, 1,000 hp limited edition truck, the Hummer EV2, Hummer EV3, and Hummer EV3X variants will begin to enter production in the following years. It remains unclear when the Hummer EV SUV will see start of production, but considering how fast General Motors is moving with Hummer EV development, it could arrive much sooner than expected.

Pricing of the GMC Hummer EV SUV is also unknown, as is whether or not it will see an Edition 1 variant, or something else. We otherwise expect the same kind of capabilities from the upcoming SUV. This means as much as 1,000 horsepower, roughly 1,000 lb-ft of motor torque, four-wheel steering, a 0-60 time of 3 seconds, Unreal Engine graphics, and so much more.

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.
