They're really cute.
The race for the king of the electric hill is in full swing, and most major domestic manufacturers are getting ready to launch an all-electric truck in the near future. Ford has its F-150 Lightning, Tesla Has the Cybertruck, and GMC is getting ready to launch the Hummer EV. The GMC Hummer EV has caused quite a stir, and promises to revive the once-cool Hummer name. This macho machine looks the part, and will perform like nothing we've ever seen, but the designers at GMC still like to have a bit of fun, and have dropped a few funny Easter eggs on the touchscreen menu, and we're here for it.
The 2023 GMC Hummer EV will feature a few seriously funny Easter eggs such as the yet to be clarified Meteor Mode which shows off an icon depicting a meteor heading for a group of T-Rex and Raptor dinosaurs. The symbolism there should be quite obvious to truck fans. We expect this mode to be some sort of hardcore off-road mode. The Wheel Chock mode has a direct reference to the GMC Hummer EV's fiercest rival, the Tesla Cybertruck, and shows the Hummer parked squarely on the Tesla's roof. The Hummer's Ditch Lights icon is another dig at the Ram 15 TRX, and shows the car's lights blinding a T-Rex dinosaur. It is unclear exactly what all these modes are for, so we'll have to wait until we get to test one some time in 2023, but its good to see that the traditionally macho Hummer isn't taking itself too seriously.
Tesla has also been known to drop some Easter eggs into the mix when designing its cars, and one of our favorite ones so far has been the "open butthole" joke that, when spoken, opens the car's charge port. We already know about the Hummer's WTF Mode (Watts to Freedom mode) that will be similar to Tesla's Cheetah mode, and will unlock the ultimate performance mode. Speaking of performance, the GMC Hummer EV Pickup Truck promises to offer tons, with over 1,000 horsepower, a staggering 11,500 lb-ft of torque, and a 0-60 mph time of just three seconds. There's nothing funny about those figures.
