2024 GMC Hummer SUV Expands GM\u2019s EV Lineup

We know the Hummer name is returning this fall as a 1000-hp pickup truck, and now General Motors has shown the SUV version. It goes on sale in 2023 as a 2024 model, starting with the $105,959 Edition 1 model.

Less-expensive models ranging in price from $79,995 to $99,995 will follow, breaking down as follows: The SUV has the same trims as the pickup (2, 2X, 3X, and Edition 1). The 2 and 2X have two motors, and the 3X and Edition 1 have three. The $89,995 2X and $99,995 3X both arrive in spring 2023. The 2X has 625 hp while the 3X has the same output as the Edition 1. Both have an estimated 300-mile range, 50 less than the pickup.

The 2 is the least expensive at $79,995, and it arrives in spring 2024 with an estimated 250-mile range and 625 hp. The 830 hp in the 3X and Edition 1 is good enough for a 3.5-second zero to 60 mph time. Why does the most-powerful SUV have 170-less hp than the pickup? Because the SUV has a smaller battery due to the shorter wheelbase. The 2X, 3X, and Edition 1s are capable of 800-volt DC fast charging.


The SUV has the pickup’s looks (they were designed together) though the SUV’s wheelbase is 8.9-inches shorter (20 inches shorter overall) for better off road maneuverability, GMC says. In fact, according to GMC, with four-wheel steering (standard on all except the base model), the SUV has just a 35.4-foot turning circle, about the same as a Chevy Bolt. Impressive considering the darn thing is nearly 8 feet wide. The Hummer’s Ultium drive system can channel power to a single wheel, there is 13 inches of suspension travel, and the truck can ford more than 2 feet of water. The 3X and Edition 1 models come standard with e4WD with torque vectoring. The Edition 1’s available Extreme OffRoad Pack adds unique 18-inch wheels and 35-inch-OD Goodyear Wrangler Territory MT tires, underbody armor, and rock sliders, underbody cameras (front- and rear-facing with wash system), and heavy-duty ball-spline half-shafts. Thanks in part to the Ultium battery sandwich being used as a structural component, like the pickup the SUV is basically convertible since the roof is made of four segments, all fitting in the front trunk. I-bar supports go in the rear cargo area.

The company says new technologies include trail mapping available via the redesigned myGMC app, wherein routes and plans can be downloaded from the app onto the driver’s phone and be projected on the truck’s infotainment screen. A new Power Station generator allows customers to use up to 3 kW of power from the vehicle, turning the SUV into a power source or backup generator out on the trail. And like the pickup, Crab Walk, using the four-wheel steering to align the wheels at the same angle, is also available, as is Extract Mode.

Other goodies include customizable screen displays, allowing the driver to tailor their favorite features including steering, suspension, torque used, differential locker engagement, tire pressure, pitch and roll angles, and so on and so forth.

Like the pickup the SUV has the enhanced version of Super Cruise, offering hands-free driving on more than 200,000 miles of enabled roads. The Hummer’s version of Super Cruise includes a new automatic lane changing feature, where the system can determine when a lane change is optimal and initiate the maneuver.
