The GMC Hummer EV upends what an off-roader should be by reintroducing the Hummer nameplate as GM’s latest trail-ready all-electric vehicle. Now, GM Authority is bringing you real-world photos of the range-topping GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 straight from the floor of the 2021 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
Like all GMC Hummer Edition 1 Pickups, this particular example is finished in Interstellar White paint, which is offset with a variety of black trim. The front end is characterized by a wide fascia treatment with broad horizontal lighting across the nose and HUMMER inner graphics, bookended by H-shaped lighting signatures. Theres also a silver lower skid plate and GMC badge in the lower righthand corner, the latter of which is finished in black. A set of black tow hooks are included as well.
Moving to the sides, we find Hummer EV badging in the doors, plus chunky off-roading tires wrapped around two-tone wheels. Between the wheels is a set of protective running boards. There’s also lower black cladding finished in black, complemented by a black finish for the roof. The fenders are quite boxy, enhancing the tough attitude.
Standard spec for the GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 includes Transparent Sky Panels, as well as the Extreme Off-Road Package, the latter of which includes those 35-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory MT Tires and 18-inch black aluminum wheels, plus front e-lockers with virtual rear lockers, ball spline half shafts, skid plates, and the rocker protectors.
The rear features black surrounds for the taillights and a silver finish for the Hummer EV badging, plus a black lower bumper and black tow hooks. We also spot a tonneau cover stretched across the bed.
Further powertrain specs include standard Watts to Freedom mode for a sprint to 60 mph in 3 seconds, as well as 800-volt DC Fast Charge capability for up 100 miles of range in 10 minutes. Estimated towing capacity is set at 7,500 pounds, while payload is 1,300 pounds. Range-per-charge is 329 miles.
Unfortunately, all GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 Pickup reservations are full.
As a reminder, the GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 is the range-topping trim level in the GMC Hummer EV pickup truck lineup, and is equipped with a three-motor powertrain doling out 1,000 horsepower. The GMC Hummer EV is also offered with a two-motor setup, as well as an SUV body style.
Under the skin, the off-roader rides on the all-electric GM BT1 platform, with motivation derived from GM’s Ultium Battery and Ultium Drive technologies. Production takes place at the GM Factory Zero plant, formerly known as GM Detroit-Hamtramck.
