The GMC Hummer EV SUV and Hummer EV Pickup have debuted in their production formats with several new technologies and a few surprising details. Among those are the production dates, with the pickup truck model beginning Q3 2021 and the SUV in early 2023.

When the new GMC Hummer EV was first unveiled in its full format, it was called a "supertruck" and was, to almost everyone’s surprise, a pickup truck. The electric truck was designed to showcase Hummer heritage in appearance, while offering an electric vehicle experience never before marketed: 1,000 horsepower of off-road readiness.

Now, GMC has added a new twist: there will also be an SUV version of the Hummer EV. The aptly-named Hummer EV SUV replaces the pickup truck bed with an enclosed cargo bay. Like the Hummer pickup, though, it will be aimed towards upscale buyers and festooned with technology. It will also retain the numerous off-road talents we outlined shortly after the truck’s unveiling.

"GMC’s Hummer EV SUV offers an exceptional balance of on-road performance and off-road capability, enhanced by a unique structure that allows for our signature open-air experience," says Al Oppenheiser, chief engineer on the Hummer EV project. "New features debuting on the SUV reinforce its role as a tactical tool in almost any situation."

Those new features? They’re spearheaded by a trail-mapping feature available in the connected myGMC app, which offers trailhead discovery, navigation, and real-time energy consumption details, along with community-based energy forecasting for trail efficiency expectations. A newly-available Power Station option will also allow up to 19.2 kW of AC charging at 120V/25A/3kW and the ability to charge other electric vehicles at 240V/25A/6kW.

Features of both the GMC Hummer EV SUV and Pickup include an interdependent body-battery structure with double-stacked Ultium batteries (exclusive to GMC). The SUV will have up to 830 horsepower (619 kW) and 11,500 pound-feet (15,591 Nm) of torque. The slightly smaller power output from the Hummer EV SUV is due to its smaller size, which includes a wheelbase that shrinks 9 inches (22.8 cm) versus the truck. The smaller wheelbase and up to 13 inches of suspension travel means better departure and breakover angles and a tighter turning radius (35.4 ft/10.8 m) with 4 Wheel Steer engaged. GMC points out that this is a smaller turning radius than the much smaller Ford Mustang Mach-E.

Both the Hummer EV Pickup and Hummer EV SUV will have a standard Infinity Roof with removable Sky Panels and I-Bar for an open-air experience on or off the road. Customizable user experience features in the Hummer’s gauge, infotainment clusters, and drive mode controls are also standard. GMC will have over 200 accessories ready for off-the-shelf purchase when the Hummer EV Pickup enters showrooms for the 2022 model year, and for the Hummer EV SUV when it appears in the 2024 model year.

Standard features on the GMC Hummer EV will include 18-inch wheels and 35-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory MT tires, underbody armor and rock sliders, UltraVision with underbody cameras (with wash system), front eLocker and rear virtual lockers for torque distribution control, and heavy-duty ball-spline half shafts.

This is a home run for GM, just like the new Corvette (which should also be offered as an electric). If this is the future sign me up. I just can't handle the long charging times, but that will change...

Should've thrown a "And there will be a gas-guzzling V12 model too" just to get the EV people to actually read an EV article and comment. Oh well.

Both are nice, but very expensive...but I guess the H1 was also a 6 figures.
