Exterior Features

Hummer EV Truck

The new GMC Hummer EV SUV combines the best features of various body types and fuses them into one supreme vehicle for the most adventurous of drivers. You’ll first notice this electric SUV has the confident, powerful body you associate with Hummer vehicles. A rear tire marks it as a rugged off-roading beast, and a flat roof extends over the cabin.

The 2023 GMC Hummer EV SUV comes with a power swing gate in the rear so you can stow all your outdoor gear, sports equipment, and luggage without slowing down. If you’re ready to feel the wind on your cheeks, you can activate the Power Rear Drop Glass.

When comparing the GMC Hummer EV SUV to the Hummer EV Pickup Truck, the exterior design is one of the most noticeable distinctions. Unlike the SUV, the pickup features an open 5-foot cargo bed where you can store work materials, tools, sporting gear, furniture, or even some blankets and pillows for stargazing done right. The bed also makes the pickup the larger of the two vehicles. It stands 79.1 inches tall and 216.8 inches long, compared to the SUV’s 77.8 inches of height and 196.8 to 206.7 inches of length. Both have 35-inch tires and distinctive exterior lighting.

Power and Performance

Both the Hummer EV SUV and the Hummer EV Pickup Truck have impressive performance specs that rival competitors. They do differ, though, so it’s important to review their differences to understand which one better suits your lifestyle and needs. The GMC Hummer EV SUV comes in at 830 horsepower. For reference, JD Power reports most large SUVs have about 400 horsepower fueling them. That means the EV offers almost twice as much power as its competitors. The pickup version of the Hummer EV offers even more strength, reaching 1,000 horsepower. Both models can get up to 11,500 lb-ft of torque.

When you’re shopping for an EV, its range is probably one of your priorities. After all, EVs free you from the need to stop for gas, but the better the range, the longer you can cruise stress-free. The new GMC Hummer EV SUV can go over 300 miles between charges. With a range of over 350 miles, the pickup gets even more mileage between charges. The discrepancy between the ranges is due to the SUV’s slightly smaller battery.

For such powerful vehicles, you might expect these EVs to take their time gaining speed, but that’s not the case. The EV SUV boasts a zero-to-60 speed of just 3.5 seconds, and the pickup revs up even faster with a speed of three seconds. While both gain momentum surprisingly fast for their size, the SUV picks up speed quicker because of its larger, more powerful battery.

When it comes to performance features, these two models have plenty in common. Both the GMC Hummer EV SUV and the GMC Hummer EV Pickup come with Extract Mode. If you’re stuck in water, mud, sand, or rocks, Extract Mode uses Adaptive Air Ride Suspension to lift you 6 inches higher so you can push through. When you drive a vehicle as adventure-ready as the Hummer EVs, anything can happen.

They also both come equipped with the aptly titled CrabWalk. This feature pivots rear wheels 10 degrees to enable diagonal driving. This one-of-a-kind innovation in engineering helps you squeeze your way out of tough spots off-road. Other performance features include front and rear lockers to help you gain traction on any terrain, underbody armor to keep your investment safe from the elements, and four-wheel steer capabilities that help skilled drivers navigate tight turns, unexpected inclines, and high-octane maneuvers. GMC and Hummer built these EVs for maximum adventure with you in control.

Interior Features

The similarities between the GMC Hummer EV SUV and the EV Pickup continue when investigating the interiors of these models. Both come with large, high-definition screens so you can stay informed and entertained on the road. These EVs come with a 12.3-inch driver information center, which features color graphics and important updates, warnings, and figures to help you stay in control of your vehicle. Here, you’ll find information like your odometer, speedometer, and any maintenance requests.

That’s not the only high-tech screen GMC and Hummer built for these EVs. Both come with a 13.4-inch touch-screen infotainment center as well. Like the driver information center, the infotainment touch screen features all color graphics. You can input your preferences and personal information to customize your infotainment experience. This massive screen makes it easier and safer for you to manage your favorite music, podcasts, and apps on the go.

Upholstery on the two EVs comes in your choice of two color schemes. The first option, called Lunar Shadow, is black with beige accents and bronze details. The second, Lunar Horizon, pairs black with light gray instead. It also has bronze details. Both options come with all-weather flooring.

Though the cabins of these two powerful vehicles have plenty in common, the SUV has a few unique features that distinguish it from the pickup. While you don’t get the cargo bed, the SUV does have clever storage so you can stow your camping gear, tents, and weekend getaway must-haves safely. You can fold down the rear seats for additional space in the trunk, and you can even lift the floor for extra room underneath it.

Both the GMC Hummer EV SUV and the GMC Hummer EV Pickup Truck defy expectations and blend the best of EVs with the trusted utility of full-size SUVs and trucks.
