Canada Won’t Get A 2023 GMC Hummer EV Pickup 3X2
Just last week, General Motors officially unveiled the 3X trim level for both GMC Hummer EV variants – which includes the Hummer EV Pickup and Hummer EV SUV. Positioned just below the range-topping Edition 1, it now appears as though the Canadian market may miss out on this new trim level for at least one model year.
The 2023 GMC Hummer EV Pickup will not be sold in 3X trim in the Canadian market. Essentially, all 2023 Hummer EV Pickup units sold and delivered in Canada will be outfitted as Edition 1 variants.
It’s worth noting that the 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV will be sold in both 3X and Edition 1 form in the Canadian market. In addition, it’s likely that the Canadian-spec Hummer EV Pickup will receive the 3X trim for the 2024 model year, however, this has yet to be confirmed by GM.
As a reminder, the all-new 3X trim level slots just below the range-topping Edition 1, and serves to allow customers more opportunity to customize their off-road-focused, all-electric supertruck or super SUV. One of the most notable additions of the 3X trim is the available Extreme Off-Road Package (RPO code Z6X), which takes both Hummer EV variants’ all-terrain prowess up another notch.
In regard to power output, the Hummer EV Pickup 3X develops 1,000 horsepower and roughly 1,200 pound-feet of torque, while the Hummer EV SUV 3X produces 830 horsepower and 1,200 pound-feet of torque. Motivation is derived from GM Ultium battery and GM Ultium Drive motor technologies.
Both variants ride on the GM BT1 platform, while production takes place at the GM Factory Zero plant (previously known as the GM Detroit-Hamtramck plant) in Michigan. Notably, Hummer EV Pickup production kicked off in November 2021 and Hummer EV SUV production commenced in January 2023.

In my opinion, GM should not have tried to build such a complex vehicle at the start of its transitions to EV. GM should have started with the much more simpler build autos until GM gets totally comfortable with the builds of all type of EV. This is why we see such a slow build of the Hummer. This vehicle is a very complicated build truck. Someone got the big head and wanted to have bragging talking points and got their mouth in front of their body. They should have spent all this energy and resources on getting the Silverado/Sierra, Equinox, Blazer out first.
