The 2022 GMC Hummer story is yet to be unveiled, but so far, we have gathered a lot of useful information for our buyers and Hummer lovers. The military-grade guzzling 2020 GMC Hummer EV has become the leader of the electric pickup trucks and is competing with rivals like Cybertruck, Rivian, R1T truck, R1S SUV, Jeep Wrangler, Gladiator, and Ford Bronco.
General Motors (GM) is delighted with the production of the 2022 GMC Hummer EV and Hummer EV SUT pickup truck. Both of these trims boast a maximum driving range of 400-miles on a single charge, deliver enormous charge outputs, and can charge fast. Also, the Hummer SUV could come with a third-low to cover the generous seating offered within the vehicle.
GMC Hummer EV SUV will be one of the newest sports electric SUVs that will mark the return of the brand. Moreover, GM will also add the new battery and charging tech in the 2022 GMC Hummer EV SUV, as well as other upcoming electric vehicles of the brand. Unfortunately, GMC has yet to announce the price of the Hummer EV SUV base and higher-level trims; however, we estimate the base MSRP of the 2022 GMC Hummer EV SUV to be the same as the GMC Hummer SUT, i.e., around $70,000.
Moreover, mechanically, the 2022 GMC Hummer EV SUV, will be similar to its electric counterparts. We have also heard speculations that the 2022 GMC Hummer EV SUVs will have one, two, and three electric motors. Also, the two and three motors of the 2022 GMC Hummer EV SUVs will be all-wheel-drive.
Meanwhile, the single motor Hummers will be rear-wheel drives. Additionally, the 2022 GMC Hummer EV SUVs are built on the EV skateboard-type platform, which means the motor will be in-line with the axles. Therefore, thy will take the least space as well as the shortest path to deliver power to the wheels.
Also, GM is not planning to offer a four-motor option that could necessarily give each motor control over a wheel. Another mystery is the brake differential of the 2022 GMC Hummer EV SUVs. GM has not yet defined whether the 2022 GMC Hummer EV SUVs will have locking front differentials or brake-based torque-vectoring. On the other hand, the Tesla Cybertruck will have a brake-based system.
GM also announced that the 2022 GMC Hummer EV SUVs would generate 1000 hp and 11,500 lb-ft torque. But, we suspect that the 2022 GMC Hummer EV SUVs will have a torque of no more than 714 to 834 lb-ft. Also, we expect that the 2022 GMC Hummer EV SUVs will have appealing off-road capabilities and towing capacities.
GM has also said that the 2022 GMC Hummer EV SUVs and other upcoming EV models will have a 3rd-generation EV platform. Additionally, the company has also said that the trucks will carry an 800-volt architecture, along with optional multiple batteries and, as mentioned before, fast charging capabilities. Also, as stated previously, the driving capability of the 2022 GMC Hummer EV SUVs will be up to 400-miles on a single full charge.
Unfortunately, both the EPA and the GMC haven’t yet announced the efficiency details of the 2022 GMC Hummer EV SUVs like the fuel economy and real MPG. Similarly, no information regarding the interior of the 2022 GMC Hummer EV SUVs has yet been stated by GMC. But, the conventional design of the Hummer SUVs says that it will have a spacious cabin space, flat floors, and a mounted battery pack.
Also, we expect no amenity shortages because of the conventional 12″ digital gauge cluster, heated as well as ventilated front seats, upholstery in leather, head-up display. Also, since the 2022 GMC Hummer EV SUVs will be in the class of pickup trucks; therefore, we expect to have big rear seats and even a third-row. But, besides the two or three rows, the 2022 GMC Hummer EV SUVs are expected to have spacious interior storages and sufficient cargo spacing.
So far, based on the existing or past Hummer SUVs, we can say that the 2022 GMC Hummer EV SUVs will have one of the best infotainment systems refined by the company’s electric technology. The features will include a 15″ touchscreen display along with connectivity options.
Standard and advanced features of the GMC models like the Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, subscription-based Wi-Fi hotspot, etc. as standard features in the 2022 GMC Hummer EV SUVs. Optional Upgrades like the Bose stereo, in-built navigation, infotainment system for the rear seat, and wireless charging.
Furthermore, the 2022 GMC Hummer EV SUVs have yet to be launched. Therefore, the testing of the vehicle has yet to be done by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
However, we do expect the driving assistance systems in the upcoming 2022 GMC Hummer EV SUVs. So far, we are also expecting the 2022 GMC Hummer EV SUVs to come with the all-inclusive GM Super Cruise, a system that provides hands-free driving with the help of lane-changing assist.
GM presently covers three years or 36,000-miles of limited warranty and five years or 50,000-miles of powertrain warranty. Additionally, it offers complimentary scheduled maintenance for first visit vehicles. We expect the same for the 2022 GMC Hummer EV SUVs.
Moreover, GM also covers warranty for electric components for eight years or 100,000-miles. We are expecting the same warranty to continue with the 2022 GMC Hummer EV SUVs and other EV vehicles.

However, GM gave the first look at the vehicle over the next five years at an event in a tech complex at Warren, Michigan.
