It's another area where the Hummer shines.
Much of the excitement surrounding the upcoming GMC Hummer EV pickup has focused on the sensational performance provided by its fully electric powertrain. It's also made headlines for its off-road capability, insane weight when fully loaded with options, and butch styling.
Besides these attributes, an often overlooked aspect of the Hummer is its use of advanced technology within the stylish cabin, making it even easier for drivers to interact with the vehicle. A new video released by Hummer shows off the pickup's quick infotainment system with Android OS and Google built-in capability. Google, of course, has numerous ties with other automakers.
Google recently signed a six-year partnership deal with Ford and Volvo rolled out its new Android-powered infotainment system in vehicles like the XC60 recently. Much like BMW and Mercedes-Benz's latest voice-activated infotainment systems, the Hummer's one springs into life upon hearing the "Hey, Google" command from the driver. From there, the system can easily be called upon to play the latest podcast, navigate the driver to the closest charging station, or play your favorite tune.
By accessing the Google Play store via the Hummer's interface, customers will also have access to a wide range of the latest apps. These apps can be accessed via the central 13.4-inch diagonal color touchscreen.
The central touchscreen is complemented by a 12.3-inch diagonal driver information display. The Ram 1500 really impressed us and marked a big step up for trucks in general with its 12-inch touchscreen but the Hummer's one trumps that - at least in terms of size. The GMC's screens are a good size and are said to "provide richer graphics than ever before" according to a statement made by GM's Creative Director of User Interface Design.
Other cool features that make the Hummer's interior feel special include its infinity roof and the Super Cruise semi-autonomous system that enables relaxed highway driving. Inside and out, the Hummer looks like it will set new benchmarks in this segment.
