The all-new GMC Hummer EV is a revolutionary all-electric pickup truck, slated for early delivery in Fall 2021. Echoing the brand’s history of ruggedness and all-out badass-ery, it is unlike any other light-duty electric truck announced by the competition so far.

Quick Takes

  • The Hummer brand is revived as the GMC Hummer EV, a fully electric pickup truck boasting revolutionary features and technology.
  • The vehicle will come standard with semi-autonomous driving capabilities, removable sky panels, large HD screens, and off-roading capabilities.
  • Available upgrades include a larger battery capacity, faster charging options, four-wheel steering, and the 0-60 mph in 3 seconds “Watts To Freedom” launch mode.
  • Three production trims are available to reserve now, except for the initial Edition 1 trim which was fully booked nearly immediately on launch day.

From Excessive Arrogance To Technology Leader

The name Hummer is imbued with a rich history that harkens back to its military roots. The brand symbolized both on and off-road dominance as well as pompous arrogance. But rising fuel prices and the lineup’s ungainly format made it a difficult long-term choice for most consumers. As a result, the final Hummer H3 rolled off the assembly line in May 2010.

All that will change as electricity-powered vehicles are taking center stage, replacing fossil fuel powertrains for good in the near future. Packed to the brim with next-generation features, the GMC Hummer EV is a seriously advanced lifestyle super pickup. Here at Blinkco, we believe that this truck will become the gold standard in this market segment.

A Class Apart In Innovation

Shedding the gaudy and cumbersome image of the past, the GMC Hummer EV comes standard with Super Cruise. Already found as an available feature in Cadillac vehicles, Super Cruise enables semi-autonomous hands-free driving on an increasingly vast highway network across the United-States and Canada.

Exhibiting a true outdoorsy DNA, the GMC Hummer EV is equipped with removable opaque or glass sky panels that reveal an industry-first Infinity Roof.

Inside, driving information is displayed on an HD dashboard screen. Secondary information, as well as a full suite for mobile connectivity and entertainment, is served by a 13.4 inch HD center touchscreen. Clad in next-generation material and bronze-accented trimmings, the GMC Hummer EV is the ultimate showcase in technological innovation, luxurious amenities, workhorse capability, and off-roading potential.

As a well future-proofed truck, the GMC Hummer EV also boasts a suite of trim-dependent available technologies, such as an adaptive air suspension capable of lifting the vehicle 6 inches higher for extra ground clearance, underbody cameras, 800V DC fast charging ability, and a driving range in excess of 560 km.

The GMC Hummer EV is also nimbler than ever with a turning circle just a smidge over 37 feet despite its gargantuan 135.6-inch wheelbase, compared to the old hulking Hummer H2 at nearly 44 feet. This is due to an available four-wheel steering option that also enables CrabWalk, a unique feature that allows the vehicle to move diagonally in tight spaces.

More Than A “Wow”

The pièce-de-résistance of the GMC Hummer EV lies in its power. Delivering up to 1,000 hp, and up to 11,500 lb-ft of torque, the available 3-motor powerplant is responsible for a “WTF” launch mode. No, not the acronym that includes a swear word. An obvious reply to Tesla’s humorously named “Ludicrous Speed” launch mode (which in itself is a Spaceballs movie reference describing an insanely fast warp speed), the Watts To Freedom mode is capable of slinging the truck from a standstill to 60 mph in just 3 seconds. Quite an impressive feat considering its enormous size.

How To Order One

Available in three trim levels on a pre-order basis, the 2, 2X and 3X, the GMC Hummer EV will no doubt be the hottest talk of truck dominance in 2021. The very exclusive fully-loaded Edition 1 model had their reservation list filled within hours and is slated for delivery in Fall, while the “lower” production trims are set to release in the following years.
