GM has already confirmed the second body style is incoming.
The unveiling of the GMC Hummer is about as close as we've come to breaking the internet in recent history, with Google's search records showing more hits for the Hummer's revival than the global pandemic or the current presidential election campaign. The Edition 1 even sold out in under an hour. But when GMC revealed the Hummer EV, there was one omission from the ceremony: no SUV. While at first, that might not seem like much of an omission, it was already confirmed back in July that the Hummer would be available in two body styles, including the SUV. While we might not yet have an official look, our in-house Photoshop wizards have managed to give us our best look yet as to what the SUV might look like.
The renders, like much of the new EV truck's design, take a strong influence from the old Hummer H2, with a flat roofline and long, narrow windows behind the C-pillar. Some might say it's lazy design, but the Hummer has never really been at the forefront of artistic license. The GMC Hummer SUV will be based on the same platform as the truck, a new electric architecture that will underpin a number of electric General Motors products in the coming years. Due to the packaging of the batteries and other electric components, that should free up a ton of space for those in the cabin, and we expect generous accommodations for up to eight occupants across three rows when the SUV does debut.
Like the Hummer Pickup, the SUV will be available in a number of powertrain configurations, with the headline being a tri-motor model boasting an estimated 1,000 horsepower and 11,500 lb-ft (at the wheels, motor torque is unconfirmed), a three-second 0-60 mph time using the Watts to Freedom feature, and a claimed 350-mile plus driving range. 800-volt DC charging infrastructure means up to 100 miles of range will be reclaimable in just 10 minutes. The interior design, aside from the inclusion of a third row of seats, will likely remain identical to the truck, so expect the same plethora of large screens, powered by the Unreal Engine.
The Hummer SUV is slated to arrive for the 2023 model year, so expect an unveiling towards the middle of 2021.
