In a new video, James takes us on a short tour of this monster truck.
If you're a lot taller than the average human and battle to find a vehicle that can comfortably accommodate your frame, you may be in luck. LeBron James, who has worked with GMC to hype up the new Hummer EV over the last year or so, is six-foot-eight inches tall and can comfortably sit inside the Hummer.
That much was clear in a new video shared by GMC showing James getting acquainted with the high-performance truck and sharing the details about it he appreciates. To be fair, the Hummer EV in question had limitless headroom as the roof was removed, one of the available features that provide an open-air experience similar to that of the Jeep Wrangler.
Still, James looked comfortable in the driver's seat, and if he can fit, almost anyone can. "GMC should be extremely proud of themselves," said James when referring to the Hummer's build quality and the special details that make it such a striking truck. "They spent a lot of hours making sure the quality and detailing of this vehicle is amazing."
As an ambassador, you're not going to hear James say anything bad about the EV, but we don't disagree that it's one of the most desirable electric trucks you'll be able to buy. When equipped with the available three-motor system, the Hummer EV will produce 1,000 horsepower and be capable of demolishing the 0-60 mph sprint in just three seconds.
This same model should be capable of a 350-mile range on a full charge. A less powerful two-motor version of the truck is also in the pipeline, but neither will be cheap - the Hummer will start at just under $80,000, significantly more than the Tesla Cybertruck.
Along with the potent performance, the upscale cabin will feature a 13.4-inch touchscreen interface and a digital driver's display, while customers will have access to an extensive catalog of accessories. The three-motor variant will go on sale this fall, but you'll have to wait until 2023 for the arrival of the two-motor version.
