Would You Reserve This Supertruck for $100?

We’ll see the all-electric Hummer during the World Series.

Oct 19, 2020
Looking for a cool way to put that extra October paycheck to use? Regret not getting in early on the Ram TRX or Ford Bronco? On October 20, you can be one of the early ones to put down a $100 reservation on the latest upcoming truck—the 2022 GMC Hummer EV.

Commercials announcing the silent behemoth ran during the Super Bowl, and after spending five months soaking in the ironic awesomeness of an electric Hummer under the GMC brand, the full reveal is set for 8 p.m. ET on October 20, during Game 1 of the World Series. Reservations open at that time, but if you're actually going to pull the trigger on a reservation, we'd suggest figuring out the details ASAP since we anticipate those reservations will be filled quickly.

But is the GMC Hummer EV really a supertruck? Althought that'll be for you to decide, it'll definitely be more of a supertruck (with four-wheel independent air suspension) than the gas guzzling Hummer of old. GMC refers to its Hummer EV as "the world's first all-electric supertruck" and "the world's first zero emissions, zero limits supertruck." That's their words, not ours, but check out these preliminary stats: up to 1,000 horsepower, up to 11,500 lb-ft of torque, and 0-60 mph in 3 seconds. There's some funny business with those horsepower and torque numbers (think torque multiplication), but the acceleration should certainly plaster your head against the headrest. If you've ever been in an electric vehicle, you know what we're talking about.

GMC touts that the Hummer EV will have removable roof panels, a very Jeep-like characteristic that's not found on other fullsize trucks. There's also a Crab Mode; we anticipate a plethora of other forward-thinking features that'll become reality way before we ever see a Tesla Cybertruck on the road. After all, if GM is wacky enough to redeem its polarizing Hummer of a decade ago, there's no reason the company won't make a homerun out of the project.

Initial availability is Fall 2021, with production at GM's Detroit-Hamtramck plant, dubbed Factory ZERO. GM intends on investing $2.2 billion to transform the site into an all-electric vehicle assembly plant. If GMC holds to that timeline, the Hummer EV SUT (sport-utility truck)—and the Hummer electric SUV version that'll follow—will have gone from concept to production in a remarkably short timeframe. Will it be a game-changer for the EV truck market, or will it bury the Hummer name for good? Only time will tell, but as for now, it may be worth the $100 reservation.
