Many have stated that the 2023 GMC Hummer EV SUV has promising performance because of its recent technology of electrification. The EV Hummer is claimed as the future vehicle that promises all electric abilities and capabilities. Hummer, after all, is known as the brand that is associated with promising offroad abilities and modern performance. However, with electric technology and the fact that it is now under GMC name, you can expect the best for its future line. With unmistakable design and also impressive offroad abilities, the EV ‘badass’ ride is ready to tackle the road.
The Updated Plan
There is a kind of ‘confusion’ for the next EV Hummer lines. Some people say that it would be coming as the 2023 model, while the others say that it would be coming as the 2024 model. In the general case, when you launch a certain model year, the vehicle should be launched around a year earlier. For instance, when you launch a 2023 model, it should be launched in 2022. When you launch the 2024 model, the launch should take place in 2023.
That’s not the case with the 2023 Hummer EV, both for the pickup and the SUV. They are planned to release in 2023, so it’s only logical if people think that GMC is releasing their next model for the 2024. But in reality, the company is actually releasing the 2023 model, so that’s the case with the mix-up.
The Hummer EV would be coming with two models: the pickup and the SUV. The company wants to pack two distinctive models with the similar features and abilities, giving buyers the choices to pick one between two promising models. The models would be different, but the performance and abilities are just the same. Naturally, the pickup truck would be stronger and more solid, but it doesn’t mean that the 2023 GMC Hummer EV SUV would be lousy or lame. The SUV would be coming with shorter wheelbase.
Trims and Prices
There are several trims available for Hummer EV SUV, which is similar to the pickup. The base trim would be the EV, set at around $80,000. The next level would be EV 2X, set around $10,000 higher than the base EV. It means that EV 2X would be sold at around $90,000. The next one would be the EV 3X with a tag of $100,000. And the highest trim of 2023 GMC Hummer EV SUV would be the Edition 1 that is set at around $106,000.
If you want to get the worthy features that would be compatible to your spending, the EV 2X would be a good option when compared to the base model. The features are more desirable and likable. And GMC has their own unique release plan, where they would release the EV 2X earlier than the base model. The company has accepted reservations and orders although they may not make the vehicle ready for at least a year later.
Powertrain and Performance
If taking inspirations from the pickup truck, it’s likely that the SUV model would be coming with two electric motors. It’s even possible that there would be 3 motors available. The EV 2X and also 3X are coming with dual motor layout, able to produce around 625 hp and 7200 Nm of torque (or so that GM is claiming).
The EV 3X and also Edition 1 have three motors, where one is located on the front side and two are located at the back. This powertrain is said to deliver 830 hp and 11,500 Nm of torque. The SUV is said to be able to reach 60 mph within 3.5 second, which is quite impressive. Considering that Hummer is a brand associated with big, burly, and heavy vehicle, it’s quite great if it is able to have impressive speed.
The difference of the EV pickup and SUV is the wheelbase. The pickup truck is longer while the SUV is shorter (126.7 inches), making it more maneuverable and easier to control. When it comes to different trail settings and parking situations, the SUV would be easier. It may not be as tough as the pickup model, but it has impressive offroad features, including adjustable air suspension (with Extract model), CrabWalk, and also full size spare tire that is mounted on the rear gate. We’d better for more confirmation and release of the 2023 GMC Hummer EV SUV.
