The all-new GMC Hummer EV Pickup is tall, tough, and ready to roll off-road. Perhaps counter intuitively, the new Hummer is also quite nimble thanks to its four-wheel steering feature, as seen here in the following GM Authority Live Photo Gallery.
While we’ve seen the GMC Hummer EV’s four-wheel steering in use before, this is the first time we’ve seen it in action out in the real world. As evidenced by the pictures here, this GMC Hummer EV Pickup is using the four-wheel steer feature to make a tight corner on the streets of Detroit, with the rear tires turned towards the outside of the corner to more deftly rotate the rear end.
General Motors fans may recall the automaker offered a similar feature called Quadrasteer, otherwise known as QS4, as an available option on a range of full-size pickups and SUVs, including the GMC Sierra, Chevy Silverado, GMC Yukon, and Chevy Suburban. In principle, the system on the GMC Hummer EV is similar, providing added agility and maneuverability.
As GM Authority covered previously, the GMC Hummer EV has a turning circle of 37.1 feet with four-wheel steering enabled.
Four-wheel steering is equipped as standard on all GMC Hummer EV trim levels, including the SUV and Pickup body styles, with the exception of the base-model Hummer EV2. That means the feature is standard on the Hummer EV2X, Hummer EV3X, and Hummer EV Edition 1.
This particular GMC Hummer EV is also notable for its exterior body components, which differ from the production vehicle in several ways. For example, the fender flares are missing, replaced with black coloring along the outer edge of the wheel well. The lower rocker panels also appear to be different, while the rear bumper is missing the rear tow hooks.
We also spot a set of cross bars added along the roof and bed section. Stay tuned for additional information on this feature.
Finally, it’s worth noting that the GMC Hummer EV also offers CrabWalk mode, which orients all four wheels in the same direction, allowing the vehicle to move laterally.
