Hummer Reveal Date Announced; Will Fly under GMC Banner

The Hummer EV truck boasts up to 1,000 horsepower

  • Hummer electric truck will have GMC emblem

  • Will be shown in Fall and arrive in late 2021

  • Will feature Adrenaline Mode


GM just announced that the next generation Hummer – which they’re calling an “all-electric super truck” – will debut in fall of 2020 as a GMC model and begin production in “late” 2021, which likely suggests a Q4 timeframe.

“Super truck” indeed; the Hummer is said to make up to 1,000 hp and 11,500 lb-ft of torque (those are both just estimates for now, however) and post a 0-100 km/h time of around three seconds. Consider for a second how much RAM advertised that their latest Heavy Duty pickups were able to make 1,000 lb-ft of torque, and you can see just how capable the Hummer could be. With figures like that, you’ll be able to haul one day and take it to the drag strip the next. We suppose.

While that’s essentially as far-reaching as the facts go, for the time being, one can imagine that GM is paying very close attention to what Bollinger, Rivian, Tesla and Ford are planning for their EV pickups and indeed, those figures are beyond anything those other manufacturers are predicting. The figures that GM is talking about for the Hummer suggest that they aren’t just trying to build another EV pickup; they’re going to be building the world’s first heavy-duty EV pickup.

In a nod – or is that a dig? – at Tesla, the video accompanying the release from GM hints at something called an “Adrenaline Mode”, which sounds suspiciously similar to the “Insane” and “Ludicrous” mode offered by Tesla. The Hummer will also get something called a “Crab Mode”, which suggests that in addition to hauling, GM expects that owners will be wanting to do some off-roading as well.

They aren’t really showing us the truck yet, but the quick glimpses we saw hinted at a squared-off body-shell and flared fenders that bring the classic Hummer shape well into the 21st century.
