This thing escalated quickly. From rumors to the official ad with the biggest sports star… General Motors means business. The legendary nameplate is definitely coming back, and as some sources were predicting – as an electric truck. The GMC badge is a surprise. Now, when we know the basic stuff about the 2022 GMC Hummer, we are trying to learn more about its drivetrain, range, release date, price.
The truck seems very cool, at the first sight. However, we expect a lot of changes before it hits production. The 2022 GMC Hummer prototype is very aggressive and futuristic. Fans like the comeback of boxy design, but with many modifications.
2022 GMC Hummer Specs
Under the hood of the 2022 GMC Hummer will be an electric battery. This one is clear now if there were any doubts. The motor will be good for 1,000 lb-ft at its best. We expect this configuration to be there at the start, while lighter versions are coming in 2023 and 2024. According to announcements, the pickup will be ready to tow 11,500 pounds. But, it increases the consumption of energy. The most important details is not unveiled yet – the range of the new Hummer.
Prices are Already Announced
The base version of the pickup truck is going to cost $80,000. However, this one is not going to be available in the first wave. The Edition 1 will be produced in a limited amount and packed with a lot of advanced features. The price for this one starts at $112,595. A lighter model will be in the market in 2023, with the MSRP around $90,000.
For now, we know that the 2022 GMC Hummer will compete against the Tesla Cybertruck. Also, the arrival of electric pickup from its archrival could speed up Ford in the development of its F-150 EV. The Blue Oval is investing heavily into the electrification and bosses plan to buy stocks in Rivian, one of the most promising electric start-ups.
2022 GMC Hummer Autonomous Drive
The 2022 GMC Hummer will be the smartest vehicle General Motors has ever produced. Well, for $112k, it must offer a hell of a ride. The Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving still has a lot of time for further development and reaching higher levels. At this moment, Tesla is a leader with Level 2, but Volvo and Nissan are announcing that their vehicles could offer Level 4 very soon.
The Super-Cruise is the technology we first met in Cadillac vehicles. The premium branch of General Motors company made it available in CT6 and Escalade models. Although the system offers semi-autonomous help, the driver’s attention is needed for a ride. Adaptive cruise control and lane-centering are the key upgrades. Still, there is a lot of work to be done before the 2022 GMC Hummer offers peace of mind when using Super-Cruise technology.
