The legendary Hummer is coming back and it’s been official that both SUV and pickup variants will be offered. From what we know so far, the pickup truck will come first. The initial version will hit the market already by the end of the year, while the rest of the lineup will arrive in 2022. On the other side, we will have to wait a few more years to see the SUV version, even though we can see reports about the 2022 GMC Hummer EV SUV. Allegedly, this version won’t arrive before 2023. As the officials are still quiet, we will call it 2022 Hummer, for now, considering that the pickup has been confirmed.
Naturally, most of the mechanics and styling details will be shared with the pickup, with the exception of the overall body style. On the other hand, we count on the same drivetrain, as well as on the same cabin design and features.
2022 GMC Hummer EV SUV Redesign
When it comes to the overall design, we’ve just mentioned that the 2022 GMC Hummer EV SUV will share most parts with the pickup version. That means it will ride on GM’s new platform. It uses the new Ultium battery-pack technology, allowing 350-kilowatt fast-charging capability and many other benefits.
Naturally, the styling will be pretty similar to the pickup. This means a nearly identical front end, which takes a lot of inspiration from the previous generations of the legendary SUV. Of course, everything comes in a modern package, full of new styling details. We expect to see a typical SUV shape, which would provide plenty of space on the inside, probably standard three rows of seats.
We’ve just mentioned that the new cabin should be pretty spacious. We count on three rows of seats as a standard feature. However, that won’t be the only strength of the new 2022 GMC Hummer EV SUV. We presume it would feature the same dashboard design, which is full of interesting details. Of course, the dash is highlighted by massive screens, a couple of them – a 12.3-inch instrument cluster and an even bigger 13.4-inch infotainment screen. What we really like is that there are still a lot of physical controls on the dashboard.
Also, there are few more pretty interesting details, such as a moon-boot footprint on the dead pedal and Sea of Tranquility on speakers. These details clearly celebrate GM’s contribution to the lunar rover program.
Naturally, this cabin will also be equipped pretty well. You may count on all kinds of tech and convenience features, including the company’s well-known Super Cruise autonomous driving system, one of the most advanced of this kind in today’s automotive industry.
2022 GMC Hummer EV SUV Powertrain
In this aspect, we don’t expect to see any differences compared to the pickup version. Therefore, you may count on the same setup that consists of three electric motors. The total output is expected to go around 1.000 horsepower and 1.100 pound-feet of torque. That should be enough power to provide 0-60 time in just 3.0 seconds. The towing capacity should also be pretty respectable.
Of course, range and charging options are other things that come to mind. Although the officials are still quiet, we presume that the new 2022 GMC Hummer EV SUV would feature a huge 200-kWh battery pack. It should provide around 350 miles of range. We already talked about the new platform, which will provide all kinds of charging options.
2022 GMC Hummer EV SUV Release Date and Price
As we already mentioned, the 2022 GMC Hummer EV SUV will probably arrive in about two years. Some sources suggest a starting price of around 80.000 dollars. Of course, key competitors would be models like Rivian R1S, Bollinger B1 and other all-electric SUVs of similar size that will certainly come in the near future.
