The 2022 GMC Hummer EV Pickup has been the topic of much conversation since the supertruck was first revealed and launched. Today, we’re here to discuss whether the Hummer EV Pickup is compatible with a slide-on truck camper.
With trucks like Chevy Silverado 1500 and Silverado HD, as well as the GMC Sierra 1500 and Sierra HD able to carry a slide-on truck-camper, some owners and shoppers might want to know if the Hummer EV Pickup can carry one as well. In a word, the answer is no.
According to documents seen by GM Authority, the GMC Hummer EV Pickup was neither designed nor intended to carry a slide-on truck-camper. In addition, adding a slide-in camper or similar equipment to the supertruck can damage it, and the repairs would not be covered by the vehicle warranty.
As a reminder, 2022 GMC Hummer EV production began late last year at the GM Factory Zero plant (née GM Detroit-Hamtramck plant) in Michigan. Output is sourced from GM Ultium batteries and GM Ultium drive motors, with the Hummer EV Pickup Edition 1 model producing a neck-snapping 1,000 horsepower and a gargantuan 11,500 pound-feet torque. Under the skin, the GMC Hummer EV rides on GM’s dedicated electric BT1 platform, which also underpins the GMC Hummer EV SUV along with the upcoming Chevy Silverado EV and GMC Sierra EV.
Last month, GM revealed that it currently has 90,000 reservations for the GMC Hummer EV SUV and Hummer EV Pickup combined – enough to prompt the automaker to stop taking new reservations for the EVs. GMC says that new units of the Hummer EV pickup are being built and shipped daily, with reservations filled in the order in which they were received. As of July, GM has produced 1,700 examples of the GMC Hummer EV Pickup.
