When it comes to the term “Supertruck,” the 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV certainly fits the bill! Not only can it drive diagonally, but this fully charged, fully electric SUV is undoubtedly revolutionary and features all the benefits of a pickup truck as well as an SUV.

It holds the title of the world’s first zero-emissions, zero limits, all-electric super truck, engineered to conquer any and all types of terrain. See what a true status symbol is all about! This SUV version of the electric pickup truck is set to its dealer showrooms in the fall, of 2023.

This five-passenger Hummer SUV will deliver a whopping estimated range of 300 miles, hit 60 mph from a dead stop in just 3.5 seconds.

Retailing at $105,595, the all-new 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV will feature a 20-module Ultium power pack that will provide power to a trio of motors mounted on the front and rear axles. It will also support 800V charging at up to 300 kW.

This vehicle, with an externally-mounted spare tire, comes standard with 22-inch rims. An Edition 1 with the optional Extreme Off-Road package comes in at a price of $110,595 and is equipped with 18-inch wheels with 35-inch tires, underbody armor, a front eLocker, and virtual rear lockers. It will also feature GM’s UltraVision camera system.

With this 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV, GM is truly coming full circle on its Hummer revival. Both the Hummer EV pickup and SUV will be among the first vehicles to be built on GM’s new modular electric battery platform, Ultium, which will result in a range of up to 400 miles or more!

The 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV, which represents all things big, including luxury and power, is considered the cornerstone of GM’s $27 billion push into EVs that will include the release of 30 brand new vehicles by 2025.

It will have the body style most have come to expect from Hummer and is a sure bet when it comes to the success of the future of EV from GM.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

Based on the Hummer EV pickup truck­–and hinted at by the superscript in their model names–the SUV version will be powered by two or three electric motors. The EVand EV2X have the dual-motor setup that generates an estimated 625 horsepower and what GM is claiming to be 7400 pound-feet of torque.

The EV3X and the Edition 1 have a trio of motors (one up front and two outback) with a claimed 830 ponies and 11,500 pound-feet. However, we’ve already explained why those incredible torque claims are misleading. We expect actual maximum torque ratings to range between 1000 and 1100 pound-feet.

The most powerful Hummer EV SUV also has a claimed zero-to-60-mph time of approximately 3.5 seconds, which is seriously quick for a machine this big and heavy. Compared with the pickup truck, the SUV has a shorter wheelbase (126.7 inches versus 135.6), which should make it more maneuverable in parking situations and out on the trails.

It’ll also inherit our favorite off-road goodies from the truck version, including four-wheel steering with CrabWalk and an adjustable air suspension with Extract mode that can raise it 6 inches. GMC also pulls at our heartstrings with a full-size spare tire mounted on the rear gate.

Plus, there’s an optional Extreme Off-Road package that brings special hardware that includes 18-inch wheels on 35-inch all-terrain tires, extra underbody protection, low-mounted cameras for improved visibility while maneuvering, enhanced axles with heavy-duty components, a locking front differential, and rear motors that can electronically mimic a locked diff.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

EPA fuel economy estimates for the 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV haven’t been released yet so it’s unknown what kind of efficiency this big electric vehicle will offer.

When it makes it to production, we’ll test the big brute on our 75-mph highway fuel-economy test route and report our MPGe and range findings here. For more information about the Hummer EV’s fuel economy, visit the EPA’s website.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

The interior of the 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV is part rugged and part Sci-Fi. Its three-dimensional dashboard boasts both vertical and horizontal air vents and a pair of large displays that include a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster.

Rather than frustrate users for the sake of appearances, the 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV has lots of hard buttons and physical switchgear, including a thick T-shaped shifter and a rotary drive-mode selector on the center console.

The materials in the top-of-the-line Edition 1 also look very upscale, with leather-stitched surfaces and distinct bronze accents. Another defining feature of the 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV‘s cabin is its removable roof panels.

Called the Infinity Roof, the system allows users to lift off the four transparent Sky Panels and the I-bar above the front-seat passengers. Along with storage under the load floor, the SUV Hummer boasts an expansive 82 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seat folded.

Infotainment and Connectivity

The 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV‘s cutting-edge electric technology will be complemented by a large 13.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system and extensive connectivity options.

As with most GMC models, desirable content such as Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a subscription-based Wi-Fi hotspot is expected to come standard. We’d also expect available upgrades to include a powerful Bose stereo, built-in navigation, a rear-seat infotainment system, and wireless charging.

The SUV Hummer is also available with a 6.0-kW onboard generator that can be used to power all sorts of equipment and even charges other EVs.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

The 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV will have an enhanced version of GM’s Super Cruise that will allow hands-free driving on the highway. We also expect it to have a host of driver-assistance technology that currently graces many mainstream models.
