This is nothing like the Hummer of 20 years ago.
Who doesn’t remember the Hummers of the past? A quick pop culture icon, the Hummer always had large stature, bold presence, and icon status that few cars in the 21st century can match. The new GMC Hummer EV maintains all of that, however, it does it without the old Hummer’s many drawbacks. As lovable as it was, the Hummer of the 2000s was often cumbersome, clunky, and of course, comically inefficient. However, the new Hummer EV goes above and beyond fixing those issues and makes another car that is iconic not just as a pop-culture staple, but as an incredible vehicle as well.
GMC Hummer EV Price
The Hummer has always been a luxury vehicle and a unique one at that. The Hummer EV’s combination of luxury, style and incredible rugged performance capability is one that’s going to be hard to find in other cars, so don’t expect a GMC Hummer EV for sale to be cheap by any means. The GMC Hummer EV price starts at $108,700, and currently, reservations are available for the pickup truck and SUV body styles of the car. There are plenty of options available for you to customize the Hummer EV exactly to your liking, and of course, those will add to the price. The Hummer EV is a completely new model, so don’t count on finding used examples, but if you’re interested in a pre-owned Hummer EV, stay patient and your dream electric truck or SUV is sure to come onto the market.
GMC Hummer EV Review
The new Hummer EV is revolutionary, but when you compare it to the rather controversial Hummer lineup we knew before, it gets even better. The Hummer EV continues the Hummer’s DNA of being an attention-commanding, large, and bold vehicle while removing the past Hummer’s woes of an inefficient, impractical powertrain with a larger carbon footprint than the ar itself. With its new electric powertrain, everything changes, and the Hummer EV becomes capable of things that we would have never thought possible, like the fact that the GMC Hummer EV horsepower is as much as 1000 for the pickup truck and 830 for the SUV, and the fact that the GMC Hummer EV review completely lacks the con of emissions from a gasoline engine. The new Hummer EV is the best of both worlds, and when we say best, we mean it.
GMC Hummer EV Specs
The new GMC Hummer EV specs have quite impressive numbers to show off, and what they translate to is a driving experience that completely defies what we thought Hummer was about before, and a vehicle that is one of the most dynamic, rugged, and capable vehicles available, all with an iconic look to go with. At only 106 mph, the GMC Hummer EV top speed is not putting down hypercar numbers, but where it does put down hypercar numbers is in acceleration. The GMC Hummer EV 0-60 is as little as 3.0 seconds, and with its Watts To Freedom launch control system, the GMC Hummer EV ¼ mile is only 11.7 seconds.

GMC Hummer EV Engine
Needless to say, the GMC Hummer EV engine isn’t really an engine. The powertrain consists of a 212.7-kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which provides power for three electric motors: one to drive the front wheels, and two to drive the rear wheels. Altogether, the system is able to provide as much as 1000 horsepower, but that’s far from the only advantage it has over a gasoline counterpart. The lack of an engine under the hood means that you get the bonus of added covered storage space in the front of the vehicle, which can be a serious advantage for truck owners who want to store things that they don’t necessarily want to be in an open bed. Along with that, because of the battery pack’s position at the underside of the vehicle, and the lack of a heavy engine at the front, the weight in the vehicle is distributed harmoniously, and the center of gravity is incredibly low. This is a huge advantage, especially for vehicles like SUVs and trucks, which can maintain their stature and off-roading capabilities while immensely reducing the once-notorious risk they had of flipping over when turned sharply or driven on an angle that is too steep.
GMC Hummer EV Interior
Ruggedness and luxury were the brief for the GMC Hummer EV interior. Available in two color schemes, dubbed “Lunar Shadow” and “Lunar Horizon.” Both feature beautiful seating surfaces, bronze accents throughout, and vast, intuitive digital displays for infotainment and driving assistance. Super Cruise is also available, which is GM’s semi-autonomous driving system, along with flat-folding seats for storage, a front trunk, and a stunning Infinity Roof which features “sky panels” that can be placed and removed modularly for the perfect open-air experience and panoramic drive.
GMC Hummer EV Brakes
Brakes are one of the most underrated strengths of electric vehicles. That’s because regenerative braking, a feature only electrified vehicles can have, allows for the friction from the brakes to be converted into electrical energy, which is then used to go back to the car and charge the battery. This innovative technology provides even more efficiency for electric vehicles, and now, it’s being taken further to make driving easier, as well. The GMC Hummer EV Brakes feature the option of One Pedal driving, which automates the regenerative braking and simplifies driving for an easy, luxurious ride.
GMC Hummer EV Standout Features
The GMC Hummer EV is a vehicle born to dominate the tarmac, and also to be one of the greatest vehicles ever once it strays off the beaten path, to this end, it features incredibly massive 35-inch tires, and similarly massive wheels on both the SUV and pickup models. To maneuver tricky situations both on and off-road, the GMC Hummer EV features Crabwalk, the ability to drive diagonally with 4-wheel steering, and Extract mode, the ability to raise the suspension by 6 inches in tough situations, giving the new Hummer EV more mobility than a Hummer has ever had before.
