Masculine, brawny, futuristic, stylish, and all-electric. All of these adjectives perfectly describe the 2022 GMC Hummer EV truck, the first-ever all-electric GMC Hummer that redefines what it means to drive an all-electric vehicle with superb off-road capabilities. The 2022 GMC Hummer EV comes in one trim, but four will be released throughout the coming years. This includes the Hummer EV2 (coming in 2024), the EV2x (coming 2023), the EV3x (coming 2022), and the Hummer EV Edition 1 (arriving 2021). Each trim/model will offer amazing performance and features, with state-of-the-art technology emanating from the very soul of this next-generation super truck.
With each trim, there will be a significant increase in capability, in standard features, in optional features, and available amenities. Those who want to own the first-ever all-electric GMC Hummer will surely find that not only will their expectations be met but easily surpassed thanks to all of the fresh market technology that the Hummer EV brings to the table.
Every trim of the GMC Hummer EV slotted to come out within the next few years is designed to give the competition a run for its money and drivers an exhilarating experience unlike any other. There is unprecedented power that rests under the body of the Hummer EV across the entire model line-up for the all-electric super truck, starting with the Hummer EV2's twin-motor powertrain that delivers 625 horsepower and up to 7,400 lb-ft of torque. The Hummer EV2 can travel an approximate 250 miles on a single full charge, which is quite the feat.
The Hummer EV2x evolves the performance, even more, expanding the travel range to up to 300 miles on a single full charge while making 800-volt DC fast charging standard.
Further up the trim line is the Hummer EV3x, which opens up the super truck to even more power, pushing out 800 horsepower and an incomprehensibly high 9,500 lb-ft of torque via three electric motors. The Hummer EV3x also features torque vectoring, which electronically distributes torque through the driveshaft toward each wheel in order to increase traction, maintain grip, or give super trucks like the Hummer EV the ability to rock crawl across seemingly impossible surfaces.
For the ultimate Hummer EV experience, the Edition 1 trim is where all eyes are focused, featuring three powerful electric motors that produce a near unrivaled amount of 1,000 horsepower and a peerless 11,500 lb-ft of torque. The super truck reaches an estimated 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 3 seconds flat, putting many supercars and popular production sports cars on notice.
The 2022 Hummer EV Edition 1 comes equipped with everything from the Hummer EV3x trim, which includes features such as 800-volt DC fast charging, torque vectoring, and many of the exterior and luxury features. However, the Hummer EV Edition 1 pushes forward with its boundary-breaking capabilities by allowing drivers to travel up to 350 miles on a single full charge.
Thanks to the DC fast charging capabilities and next-generation battery capacity capabilities, it's possible to charge up to 100 miles worth of travel for the Hummer EV in just 10 minutes. This truly changes the nature of the electric vehicle game, giving drivers a much more robust series of options to fast-charge and travel without having to deal with lengthy wait times.
The Hummer EV takes its technological advancements regarding power and performance and applies them to its off-road capabilities as well. This extends to features such as UltraVision, an 18-camera setup designed to give drivers a view of practically every angle of the Hummer EV.
In addition to being able to view the top, left, right, and front of the Hummer, UltraVision also enables occupants to view the underbody of the truck as well; perfect for scouting how to handle difficult terrain or traction-reducing predicaments in the environment. The Hummer EV also comes with an inclinometer so that you can see where and how it's pitched on the current terrain, as well as the angle of approach. This is perfect for plotting and navigating along off-road paths and trails and brings a new level of driver-ready information to off-road excursions.
With the standard terrain mode, the Hummer EV achieves 11.9-inches of ground clearance, with a 44.3-degree approach angle, a 33.7-degree departure angle, and up to 28-inches of water fording. All those figures increase exponentially when taking into account the available Extract Mode for the all-electric super truck, which enables the Hummer to extend a few inches to surmount even the most difficult of inclines.
Extract Mode also increases the Hummer EV's off-road traversal capabilities, with an extended ground clearance of 15.9-inches, a 49.7-degree approach angle, and a 38.4-degree departure angle. Water fording is also increased up to 32-inches.
With the specially engineered 35-inch Wrangler tires from Goodyear, the all-terrain capabilities of the monster treads make it so that any surface can be traversed by the Hummer EV. What's more is that the suspension and wheel axles have been specifically designed to allow for aftermarket tires at up to 37-inches, giving it even more off-road prowess than what comes off the production line.
The inclusion of adaptive air ride suspension with ride control and suspension damping, along with 4-wheel electronic steering, allows the Hummer to achieve diagonal driving at low speeds with the CrabWalk feature. With this feature, the rear wheels capable of turning up to 10-degrees left or right to help the truck conquer turns many would consider improbable.
Of course, all of this talk of off-road travel is only possible if the innards and undercarriage are properly protected, and that's why the Hummer EV comes with a fully armored underbody featuring steel plates and protective shielding around all of the vital areas under the truck. This includes special shielding around the battery pack, protective plates around the wheel axles, and rock sliders to ensure that the drivetrain is never harmed during rocky excursions across jagged hills spread out over the untamed wilderness.
The entire vibe of the 2022 Hummer EV revels in a technological awakening for off-road trucks. The entire lunar-themed exterior exudes futurism, and it echoes all throughout the super truck's design, right down to the fabric in the interior. The tech bronze trimming highlights a two-tone Lunar Horizon theme with ergonomic seating, angular edges, and quality cross-stitching on the fabric.
The interior cabin is also boosted in its appeal thanks to high-definition information displays, including a 12.3-inch multi-color diagonal driver information center featuring vehicle health, speed, and charging data, as well as a 13.4-inch center console display with touchscreen controls and easy access to apps, trail routes, navigation information, and media content.
With seating for up to five and standard integration of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, along with Wi-Fi connectivity and implementation of a 14-speaker premium Bose sound system means that all passengers will not only have a comfortable ride, but an entertaining one as well.
If you would prefer passengers soak in more of the great outdoors rather than content on smart devices, the semi-open-air Infinity Roof provides the perfect opportunity to modify the look of the Hummer EV thanks to the modular sky panels that can be easily removed and stored in the frunk.
One of the most talked-about technological feats of the 2022 Hummer EV is the Super Cruise feature. This enables owners of the all-electric super truck to experience hands-free driving across more than 200,000 compatible roads spread throughout the United States of America. With automatic lane changing, alert systems, and driver assistance, you have both a highly durable and extremely safe super-truck on the road.
Plus, with the inclusion of the MultiPro Tailgate, featuring six-way operational functionality, you can load, store, haul, or relax in the back of the Hummer EV with convenient and easy-to-use tailgate functions no matter what you plan on using the truck for.
