2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV Price, Release Date, Specs – One of the last century’s numerous recognizable and badass off-road vehicles gets the electric treatment for 2024 in the form of the GMC Hummer EV SUV. Hummers are produced under the GMC brand, but their distinctive appearance and impressive off-road skills remain unchanged in their electric state. The SUV’s cutting-edge technology, massive power, and new features, like its four-wheel steering, which makes the much-talked-about crab mode possible, will make it even more impressive.
The new Hummer’s most exciting feature is its Ultium battery technology, which allows for fast charging periods and a large battery pack that can power the vehicle for an estimated 300 miles or more. It looks like the inside of a pickup truck, and it has several high-tech features and roof panels that can be removed for an open-air drive.
2024 GMC Hummer EV Redesign
The traditional Hummer grille has been updated for this new millennium to include a headlight bar. This seems to be a natural fit for today’s aesthetic preferences. The H2 hommage wheels, tow hooks, square body, and mounted spare tire in the back are a few other distinguishing characteristics of Hummers. In addition, GMC included modern touches like the Infinity Roof’s detachable Sky Panels and I-Bar. Moonshot Green Matte is a new GMC color that debuts on Edition 1. Other SUV models, including the EV Pickup, will eventually get this matte color.
GMC says the 2024 Hummer EV SUV can turn faster than the vastly less expensive Ford Mustang Mach-E because it has four-wheel steering. The SUV is around nine inches shorter in width and twenty inches shorter in length compared to the Hummer EV Pickup. The SUV’s lower dimensions allow for better departure and break-over angles and a more manageable turning circle of just 35 feet and four inches.
The cabin of the Hummer EV SUV is part rough and part sci-fi. It has a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster and huge dual displays, making for a three-dimensional dashboard. Rather than irritate users for the sake of looks, the Hummer has loads of hard buttons and physical switchgear, including a hefty T-shaped shifter and a rotary drive-mode selector on the center console. Edition 1’s premium materials provide a similar high-end appearance, with leather-stitched surfaces and distinctive bronze embellishments. Another characteristic element of the Hummer’s cabin is its removable roof panels. The four translucent Sky Panels and the I-bar above the front seat passengers can be removed using the Infinity Roof system. When the back seat is folded down, the SUV Hummer has a vast 82 cubic feet of space for cargo. There is also space under the load floor.
In addition to the state-of-the-art electric technology, the Hummer will include an ample touchscreen information and entertainment system with a 13.4-inch display and numerous connectivity options. When purchasing a new GMC, you can count on having access to features like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a Wi-Fi hotspot that requires a paid subscription. We’d also expect possible upgrades to include a strong Bose sound, built-in navigation, a rear-seat infotainment system, and wireless charging. The Hummer SUV has a 6.0 kW generator that can power many devices, including electric car charging stations.
We agree wholeheartedly with GMC’s description of the Hummer EV SUV as a “super truck,” based on objective criteria. The EV2 and EV2X are the “slowly” trim levels, but they have two electric motors delivering 625 hp and 7,400 lb-ft of torque. While the EV2’s 16 modules provide a range of over 250 miles, the EV2X’s 20 modules offer a range of over 300 miles. The EV3X, also known as the Edition 1, features three electric motors and increases power to 830 horsepower and 11,500 pound-feet of torque, all while maintaining a range of over 300 miles and a 0-60 mph time of 3.5 seconds. An Extreme Off-Road Package decreases the content but gives increased capability.
The SUV can transition its batteries from parallel to series mode while plugged in, allowing it to take advantage of public fast charging stations that provide up to 300 kilowatts of DC. A one-pedal driving mode helps restore energy from the brakes and comes conveniently while off-roading. Taking a page out of Ford’s reader, the Power Station generator can jump-start another EV, electrical power equipment, or accessories.
