Back in March 2023, General Motors released a first teaser of what appeared to be a GMC Hummer EV Pickup built for overlanding, and followed up with a second teaser in early August. Today, the Detroit-based automaker has officially revealed the GMC Hummer EV EarthCruiser.
Built in collaboration with EarthCruiser – an aftermarket company that designs and manufactures overlanding equipment for trucks and SUVs – the Hummer EV EarthCruiser is designed to take owners off the beaten path for a zero-tailpipe emissions all-terrain experience. Set to make its public debut at the Overland Expo Mountain West in Colorado, this new Hummer EV variant will be on display from August 25th to 27th, 2023.
“We are proud to work with GMC on the design and manufacturing of such an exceptional product,” EarthCruiser CEO and Founder Lance Gillies stated in a prepared statement. “It feels right, it feels like it belongs. Using our years of overlanding expertise, we have ensured nothing is out of place, unnecessary or wasted in this vehicle. This collaboration with the GMC team has provided the perfect opportunity to demonstrate the zero-tailpipe emission possibilities for overland and recreational vehicle travelers. We have produced a comfortable, capable product, built to a high caliber of excellence – one that our customers can take pride in.”
Intended for the Hummer EV Pickup, the EarthCruiser includes a suite of features that allow for the ultimate overlanding experience, including:
- Integrated carbon fiber house
- 605 watts of onboard solar power, along with a 12-volt battery for an estimated seven days of off-grid electricity
- Insulated tri-layered pop-up roof
- Unique EarthCruiser interior appointment
- Curated selection of appliances, showers, 120-volt and 12-volt outlets, storage solutions and a flat-pack toilet
- RV full-size bed
- Seven-inch diagonal touchscreen control panel
For prospective buyers, the GMC Hummer EV EarthCruiser is expected to be available for the Hummer EV Pickup in 2024 through EarthCruiser itself, though the buyer is responsible for providing the vehicle. Further details will be released later this year. In addition, General Motors has stated that the EarthCruiser upfit will not be covered by the GM New Vehicle Limited Warranty, and that GM is not responsible for independent-supplier alterations.
