The Hummer EV Pickup is Coming this Fall: Is It the Game Changer GMC is Hoping For?

The Hummer EV Pickup is Coming this Fall – Is It the Game-Changer GMC is Hoping For?

Some truck enthusiasts are a little concerned about the transition to fully electric motors. The new Hummer EV should put their minds at ease.

There’s a reason fully-electric trucks are taking longer to develop than the four door sedans you see on the road today. Trucks are complicated. They have more variables than traditional cars, and even SUVs. If you’re driving a truck for work, chances are you’re going to need to haul some heavy loads.

Heavier loads mean less range. Less range means less reliability.

Has GMC solved that problem with the Hummer EV Truck? So far that seems to be the case. The Hummer EV Pickup promises a huge range, even while towing larger loads. Not to mention it’s just as sleek and beautiful as it is rugged and versatile. Let’s take a look.


First thing’s first, let’s talk about what makes this electric truck worthy of carrying the Hummer name.

Hummer’s new supertruck will feature a tri-motor system similar to Tesla’s Cybertruck. Each motor sports about 390 lb-ft, totaling a whopping 11,500 lb-ft combined. With the truck’s 1,000 HP and 4WD system, you can expect to see a 0-60 time of just 3.0 seconds. That is an amazing number for a truck that’s also expected to tow anywhere between 7,500 and 11,000 pounds.

Even with all the increased performance, the luxurious interior (we’ll get to that later), and the environmentally friendly motors, Hummer did not ignore their roots.

Offroading was clearly a big priority with this next-gen Hummer line. Coming standard with 35” tires, with 37” capable, full underbody armor, four-wheel steering, and a revolutionary new mode called “Crabwalking”. This mode allows drivers to turn all four wheels at low speeds to navigate sand and rough terrain like never before.


Spacious, practical, and visually stunning.

The Hummer EV Pick Up is being released with two interior styles. The Lunar Shadow style features a jet black and taupe appearance that feels dark and durable, while the Lunar Horizon style adds some brightness and feels flawlessly clean. Each style is finished with spectacular bronze accents.

Each pick up is equipped with two HD displays – a driver side information center, and a monster 13.4” center console with customizable settings and intuitive controls. The console makes Hummer’s “Ultravision” even more exciting. Hummer’s 2022 pick up will include up to eighteen camera views, including waterproof forward-and-rear-facing cameras.

In a world of increasingly beautiful interiors, the Hummer EV Pick Up is in a class of its own.

EV Specs

While the EPA hasn’t officially confirmed these numbers, Hummer’s estimates are looking like the real deal.

  • Est. 350+ Mile Range
  • 800V, 350W Fast Charging
  • 100 Miles in 10 Minutes
  • Full Charge < 45 Minutes

One thing to note, there has been no official report about the sustainability of that 350+ mile range while towing. We’ll have to wait and see just how efficient the Hummer Edition 1 is during real-world tests. 


Even with new fully-electric vehicles hitting the market every month, the EV age is still in its infancy. That’s why we’re seeing price tags well above the reach of middle-class Americans. Unfortunately, the 2022 Hummer EV Pickup Edition 1 is no different with an MSRP of $112,595.

However if you don’t need 1,000 HP or 11,500 lb-ft of torque, you could find a slightly more reasonable Hummer EV2 for just $79,995 (with an estimated release date of Spring 2024).

For now, you’ll have to decide if the performance, features, EV range, and offroading capabilities are worth the high price tag.

Final Thoughts

Is the Hummer EV Pickup a game changer? We wouldn’t say that just yet.

It’s a beautiful car with some revolutionary new features, that still feels like a Hummer. Will it really have 11,500 lb-ft of torque? What’s the real range when towing 2,000 lbs? Early reports are promising, but we’ll have to wait for some real-world tests to be sure. 

The electric motor technology of the new Hummers is nothing short of impressive, but one of the biggest main-stream complaints still exists: the high price tag. As technology gets better, we’ll see fully-electric cars and trucks at far more attainable price points. But for now, if you’re in the market for an EV truck and you can afford the price tag, the Hummer EV Edition 1 makes a compelling case for the most versatile EV truck on the market.

We want to hear what you think! Do you believe the Hummer EV Edition 1 can compete with Tesla’s Cybertruck? How much would you be willing to spend on Hummer’s EV supertruck?
