Hummer. Just the name is polarizing. On one hand, the Hummer is one of the most capable and historic military vehicles of the 20th century. On the other, it’s really, really big for a Walmart parking lot and for sure overkill. To say the Hummer has a reputation would be an understatement. You either love the big, boxy, extremely off-road capable behemoths, or you hate them. Could the completely revamped 2022 GMC Hummer rekindle this waining nameplate?
Having just watched GMC’s buzz reel for the brand spanking new Hummer EV “electric super truck,” I would say a solid if tentative “yes.”
The 2022 GMC HUMMER EV is designed to be an off-road beast
Here’s what we know so far.
2022 GMC Hummer EV: Fast, Capable, Luxurious
GMC makes no bones about the electric Hummer’s capabilities. Right off the bat, it boasts 0-60 times of 3 seconds. Let that sink in. THREE (3) seconds.
For a frame of reference, the 2019 Ford Mustang GT hits 0-60 in 3.8 seconds and weighs, we’re guessing, more than a thousand pounds less. Of course, electric vehicles are renowned for massive torque and acceleration, but this number should easily rival the forthcoming Tesla Cybertruck, Rivian R1T, and Bollinger B2 electric pickups.
So yeah, this is a muscle car on enormous, vein-popping steroids. And it looks to be a beast offroad. Now that you’ve read this far, take a minute and, if you haven’t watched the video about this super truck below, do so.
