The GMC Hummer EV has a reveal date

The new Hummer won't be a brand but a supertruck model from the the truck-only brand GMC?!

Does anyone remember Hummer? It was that company that produced the H1, H2, and H3(T)? Schwarzenegger had one and actually pushed for the H1 to be a civilian model - he even had an electric H1. I remember Hummer quite well. I even remember fuh2.com with all the people flipping off the gas guzzling H2. Someone at GM must have surfed that site and listened carefully because we won't see another gas-hog - we're getting a Hummer EV "supertruck"!

Surfing through the site you'll see some impressive numbers. Had you mentioned these numbers even five years ago to me I'd have thought you were higher than a kite. How have we come so far so quickly?

They're advertising 1,000 horsepower, 11,500 foot-pounds of torque, and 0-60 MPH in 3 seconds?! Arnold is dooling right now. You know he will buy one - hell GMC might give him the first one to add more star power with Lebron already hawking a truck that's one year away from release.

The literature from the GMC website states, "The GMC HUMMER EV has zero limits, and our open-air design provides powerful proof. For the unique open-air experience, easily remove the four roof panels and front T-bar to let the world in. We’ll continue to keep you informed as we prepare to show the world our revolutionary all-electric, zero emissions, zero limits supertruck."

You need to visit the website for yourself. The roof comes off, it can CRABWALK, and it has a design language we'd understand from the corpse that was the Hummer brand. The slight teasers you get give away quite a bit. The side profile looks very 'Hummer' especially when compared to the H3T with the high beltline and boxy shape. There is a significant rake to the truck version's rear windscreen when compared to the front - is it traveling backwards?!

We will be seeing the full reveal on October 20th from the sole company to produce a truck-only line... that's a rant for another day.

  • They should have made the blazer an offroad vehicle then have the hummer as the more luxurious and expensive version of the blazer because GMC is already sort of the luxury version of chevrolet

    • Please put in an application at GM and find a way to make this happen.

    • It won’t. It’s already being released. He’d have to get a job as an executive in Detroit.

  • Bringing the Hummer back is kind of like bringing back the mullet.

  • I think this is a fantastic idea, i wouldn't buy one, but I'd love to see them on the road

    • I think most of us are excited about the fantastic ideas coming out in the next few years - that doesn’t mean it will immediately transform us into believers or pry the gas and diesel powered vehicles from our garages.

  • I was married for years, I’m used to hummers going away. Oh wait, we’re talking about a truck?

  • I can't wait for this. For me this is the most exciting debut of 2020.

    And weird to suggest, but might this become a overpowered Bronco competitor?
