GMC Drops Details For Hummer EV SUV Including Trail Nav Maps
GMC expects the SUV to outsell Hummer EV pickup.
The GMC Hummer EV SUV made its official debut a couple of days ago, but the truck/SUV brand still had plenty more to share about its big, beasty electric vehicle. Besides a raft of new photos – check out the expanded gallery below – we also got lots of details into many of its features.
It’s likely it will share most of these goodies with the Hummer EV SUT that will begin deliveries late this year, but the fully-roofed version is unique in some respects. For one, its wheelbase is a full nine inches shorter than that if its pickup stablemate. That distinguishes it in a number of ways.
For one, it gives it smaller turning radius. And, if you tick the box to get four-wheel steering (which you probably should), you’ll get a tighter turning radius than many smaller vehicles: 35.4 feet (10.8 meters), to be exact. And, if do choose four-wheel steering, you’ll also be able to access “crabwalk.” As you can see in the video below, that 10-degrees of rear-wheel steering can help get you out of tight situations.
If you are out on the trail (or anywhere, really) and need a source of electricity to power a stove or a chainsaw, the optional “Power Station” generator can provide 3kW to fulfill your needs (120v/25A/3kW). Or, if by chance you need to give another electric vehicle a boost, it can lend a hand there with 6 kW (240v/25A/6kW).
Besides the standard type of options, GMC is diving deep into the accessories game. From light bars to roof racks, they say there will be over 200 different adornments and doodads to choose from. And why not? If a customer is willing to plunk down a minimum of $80k for a vehicle, they’re likely to want a few trimmings that are designed specifically to work with it.
The one thing that makes us just a little bit sad about the Hummer EV SUV is waiting for it to arrive in buyers garages. The Edition 1, which is already sold out, is only arriving in early 2023. That’s more than a year after the SUT begins to roll from the freshly renovated Detroit-Hamtramck plant, now dubbed Factory Zero.
Still, when it does enter production, GMC believes it will significantly outsell the SUT with the open bed. After seeing just how trick this SUV will be, we kind of have to agree with them. The only question for some, besides how to pay for it, will be which of the seven initial colors they’ll want it painted in. If you’re in that boat, check out the little clip below that runs through them.
