For the 2024 model year, GMC introduces several updates to the Hummer EV Pickup, most notably an expanded battery option that provides an increased driving range.
Additionally, GMC now offers a new body style for the Hummer EV lineup, featuring the Hummer EV SUV.
In terms of the Pickup variant, the previous Edition 1 trim is no longer available, leaving the 3X grade as the sole option. The standard powertrain consists of a three-motor setup, with one motor located at the front and two at the rear, boasting an impressive 1,000 hp.
Furthermore, there are now two battery choices to select from. The standard option is a brand-new 20-module unit, while the previously standard 24-module battery remains available. Although GMC hasn’t provided a range estimate for the 20-module battery, they confirm that the 24-module unit will allow for an extended range of 381 miles, surpassing last year’s 355-mile range. Unfortunately, the details regarding the method behind this increase have not been disclosed by GMC.
It’s worth noting that the range estimate mentioned assumes the use of standard 22-inch wheels and 35-inch All-Terrain tires. However, if customers opt for the Extreme Off-Road Package, which includes 18-inch wheels with 35-inch Mud-Terrain tires, the range estimate for the 24-module battery decreases to 359 miles, still an improvement over the previous year’s 329 miles.
Due to the Hummer EV Pickup’s substantial weight, it is not subject to EPA testing. Nonetheless, GMC’s range estimates are calculated using the same testing cycle as the EPA, as stated by the automaker.
Moreover, if maximum acceleration is desired, the 24-module battery is the preferred choice. GMC claims an impressive 0-60 mph time of three seconds when utilizing the Watts to Freedom launch control feature. With the 20-module battery, the 0-60 mph time is slightly longer at 3.5 seconds.
Irrespective of the battery selection, the Hummer EV Pickup comes generously equipped. Notable standard features include rear-wheel steering with the innovative CrabWalk diagonal drive capability, adaptive air suspension, and the Super Cruise automated driver-assist system, which now covers over 400,000 miles of roads across the United States and Canada.
In terms of towing capacity, the Hummer EV Pickup can handle a maximum of 8,500 pounds, which decreases to 7,500 pounds with the addition of the Extreme Off-Road Package. This package not only includes Mud-Terrain tires but also provides four additional underbody camera views, bringing the total to 18 camera views. Furthermore, it incorporates heavy-duty ball-spline half-shafts and comprehensive underbody protection, consisting of five skid plates, shields for the battery and motors, as well as rocker protection.
The 2024 Hummer EV Pickup starts at a base price of $106,945, while the 2024 Hummer EV SUV begins at $100,395. Both prices include destination charges.
Despite the high price tags, these vehicles have garnered significant attention, with over 90,000 reservations, evenly split between the Pickup and SUV variants. Given the strong demand, GMC has temporarily halted reservations to focus on fulfilling orders from customers who have already converted their reservations. The automaker has not provided a specific timeline for when the reservation process will reopen.
