The 2022 GMC Hummer EV has finally made its big debut, ushering in a host of new technology and features along the way. In addition to fresh tech for off-roading fun, such as CrabWalk and UltraVision, the new Hummer EV interior also comes with the latest goodies to keep passengers informed and entertained, as powered by Google Infotainment Services.
Last year, General Motors announced that it would integrate various Google services and features into new 2021 model year vehicles, with Google Voice Assistant, Google Navigation, and the Google app ecosystem replacing the automaker’s in-car voice assistant, navigation system, and app shop. The new system continues to utilize Android operating software.
However, when General Motors announced it would use Google Infotainment Services, it did not specify which models would offer the new features. Now, however, GM Authority has confirmed with GMC Hummer engineers that the Hummer EV interior uses Google Infotainment Services.
A few examples of the Google Infotainment Services features includes hands-free calling and texting, audio selection, and climate control temperature changes using Google Voice Assistant. Google Embedded Navigation also offers up-to-date route info, EV charge station location data, and other useful tidbits.
In the announcement made last year, General Motors stated that the decision to go with Google Infotainment Services was based on the fact that “many customers prefer an embedded technology experience in the vehicle, and increasingly expect seamless integration between the tech in their hands and the tech in their vehicle.”
Indeed, the GMC Hummer EV interior is already packed with innovative technology, and with Google Infotainment Services onboard, customers will no doubt have all the latest cutting-edge features right at their fingertips. Inside the GMC Hummer EV interior, the EV Edition 1 comes with a 13.4-inch diagonal infotainment screen and 12.3-inch diagonal driver information center display, while a wealth of off-road widgets produce information on various vehicle function and terrain status, such as torque output, tire pressure, differential locker engagement, pitch and roll angles, torque vectoring, and much more.
