It's packed with off-road goodies and luxury items.
GMC is offering a new launch package for the Hummer EV, set to increase demand for this competent off-roader even further.
GM already has big plans to entice people into buying EV cars, and one of its most convincing cars yet, the GMC Hummer Pickup, has been able to draw massive attention and rack up thousands of orders and an extremely long waiting list. GMC even had to stop reservations in September to catch up.
The EV Hummer Pickup was first offered in the range-topping Edition 1 trim, which has sold out, and now the EV3X trim has taken over as the halo model. According to GM Authority, this particular trim will be available with a 3X Launch Package adding several off-road, design, and luxury features.
GMC has yet to announce the price of the new package, but we know that it bundles the Extreme Off-Road Package with many other features.
The Extreme Off-Road package includes hardcore accessories and features such as a set of 35-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory mud terrain tires, 18-inch black aluminum wheels, front and rear e-lockers, ball-spline half shafts, skid plates, and rocker protectors, which allow the Hummer EV to go places where few others can.
The 3X Launch Package includes forward and rear underbody cameras, black rear D-ring recovery hooks, a rugged power retractable tonneau cover, a premium Kicker sound system, a sky panel storage set, and an under-seat organizer and i-bar storage system.
The GMC Hummer EV Pickup entered production late last year and rides on GM's electric BT1 platform. The base model, the EV2, features dual electric motors producing 625 horsepower. It has a maximum range of 250 miles, while the EV2X can do 300 miles.
The highly sought-after Edition 1 gets a tri-motor setup with 1,000 horsepower and 1,200 lb-ft of torque. The Edition 1 can sprint to 60 mph in an astonishing three seconds and can tow 7,500 pounds.
Finally, the EV3X model features an 830 hp powertrain and a range of 350 miles. GMC is still battling to keep up with demand, and while new packages are always welcomed, they're of little use if we can't get our hands on the vehicle itself.
