We’ve just caught the upcoming 2022 GMC Hummer EV pickup undergoing testing on public roads, and one shot in particular stuck out as rather interesting, as it shows the upcoming EV supertruck alongside the 2021 Chevy Tahoe. Looking past the fact that the Hummer is missing various production-intent features, the photo gives us a real-world understanding of the Hummer EV’s real-world dimensions while giving us an interesting data point on one yet-to-be-announced stat.
Assuming that both the Hummer and Tahoe are on even ground in this photo allows us to conclude that the former is slightly less tall than the latter. Those paying particular attention should know that GM has yet to officially confirm the height measurements of the 2022 GMC Hummer EV pickup. It’s one of the few remaining stats that are still not known about the upcoming Ultium-powered EV.

|Wheelbase (in. / mm)||135.6 / 3,445||135.6 / 3,445||135.6 / 3,445||120.9 / 3,071|

|Height (in. / mm)||TBD||TBD||TBD||75.9 / 1,927|
|Track width front (in. / mm)||73.3 / 1,863||73.3 / 1,863||73.3 / 1,863||68.5 / 1,741|
|Track width rear (in. / mm)||73.3 / 1,863||73.3 / 1,863||73.3 / 1,863||68.3 / 1,734|
Incidentally, both the Hummer and Tahoe feature Air Ride Adaptive Suspension, which enables the driver to control the vehicle’s ride height. Though both vehicles pictured here appear to be in their “regular” ride height settings, the Hummer EV’s suspension is capable of being raised about six inches to as part of the Extract Mode feature, while the 2021 Chevy Tahoe offers up to four inches of ride-height adjustment.
As far as the other stats, the Hummer EV pickup has a much longer wheelbase compared to the 2021 Tahoe, which enables the electric pickup to have a greater overall length. The Hummer is also quite a bit wider than the Chevy SUV, enabled by substantially wider front and rear tracks.

GM plans to begin initial production of the 2022 GMC Hummer EV pickup in the fall of 2022 at its GM Detroit-Hamtramck plant, which was recently renamed to GM Factory Zero. The range-topping Edition 1 model, priced at $112,595, will be the first to go into production. It will be joined by three other models, EV3X, EV2X and EV2 in the fall of 2022, spring of 2023 and spring of 2024, respectively. The EV2 model will be the most affordable, with a starting price of $79,995.
