On October 20th, 2020, General Motors will finally unveil the all-new 2022 GMC Hummer EV Sport Utility Truck (SUT). The reveal will be streamed live over the Internet at 8 p.m ET, and GM Authority is the place to watch it all go down.
For those who may be unaware, the 2022 GMC Hummer EV revives the Hummer brand as a series of new battery-electric vehicles, including a large pickup truck and SUV, the former of which will be shown in a debut event on October 20th.
Originally slated for a reveal in May, the GMC Hummer EV debut was pushed back as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Providing the motivation in the all-new 2022 GMC Hummer EV will be a range of powertrain setups, with customers offered one, two, or three electric motors, depending on the model selected. The range-topping model will produce more than 1,000 horsepower and 11,500 pound-feet of torque, sprinting to 60 mph in three seconds. Maximum range is expected to be around 400 miles.
In addition to impressive on-road performance, General Motors also claims that the new Hummer will offer impressive off-road capability as well.
Under the skin, the new GMC Hummer EV rides on GM’s BT1 platform, a variant of the GM T1 platform used by GM’s full-size pickup and SUV lines, such as the Chevrolet Silverado and Cadillac Escalade. GM’s Ultium battery technology will provide the juice to the Ultium Drive motors.
Production is slated to take place at the GM Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly plant in Michigan. The plant has since been renamed to GM Factory ZERO. The first units are slated to arrive at dealers in the fall of 2021 as 2022 model year vehicles. Pricing is so far unannounced, but is expected to start around $60,000.
As GM Authority covered previously, interested buyers can make a reservation for a new GMC Hummer EV immediately following the vehicle’s debut. Reservations costs just $100, and interested buyers will be able to choose between four different trim levels, as well as select their preferred dealers. Options and pricing details are expected to drop with the debut, though it’s possible that GM will share this information at a later time.
