GMC announced today that reservations are being accepted for its new supertruck, the 2022 GMC HUMMER EV, which launches with initial production fall of next year in the unique Edition 1 trim.



“The GMC HUMMER EV is revolutionary, defying what the industry thinks of as a pickup truck,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global Buick and GMC. “The Edition 1’s tailored off-road content will make HUMMER EV’s unprecedented capability and zero-emissions a very special proposition for customers.”







Every GMC HUMMER EV Edition 1 will be identically appointed and fully equipped. Each features a white exterior and a unique Lunar Horizon interior, with special “Edition 1” interior...

Kinda looks like an old Ridgeline mated with an old Avalanche! But 1000hp wow! Who wouldn’t want to drive it!! It would be a nice addition to the first one in my avatar.

The future looks so amazing. So many electric trucks are coming to market all competing for our attention AND internal combustions also keep getting developed and improved.

I am a big fanboy of electric vehicles and have never even been inside any of them.
My personal dream route towards electric is a retrofit classic vehicle. EVWest would be my go to shop to put int together. However....I am not in the market, yet.

Also not a fan of the politics that force people into one way or the other. Let the free market decide.

I leased an EV for 2 years and it never had a problem I couldn't fix by rebooting it. It was a blast to drive and super cheap to operate. I went through 3 sets of tires before it was turned in. I would have purchased it at the end of the lease but the buyout was ridiculous. The Tesla stuff doesn't really interest me because I can't justify a toy with a price tag that high. The leased car was basically free after CA and FED credits so it was worth it to test the waters. Enter the new all electric Trucks and SUV's that are coming to market and I could 100% see me getting rid of my gasoline powered daily driver now.

Gas makes cool noises and has the convenience of quickly adding more miles to the tank but the EV's are so fun to drive. Going from 0 to hauling ass right now is a lot of fun.

Tesla is awesome and I am a closet Elon fanboy at times. However....the maintenance outside of warranty is crazy expensive. You are stuck in walled garden to get simple things like a half shaft. No parts available at your local Autozone and no support for the DIY and fix it yourself crowd. It seems like Tesla is cool only while new and then after 2-3 years ditch it.

A used Ford/Chevy/Yota.... yeah those I can buy a 2020 and in 2025-20infity work on and tinker with with full support from the manufacturer and the aftermarkets. There are communities that show you how. There are junkyards I can get parts from if on a budget. Tesla is missing out on that. What happens to all of their 5 year old products?

Maybe that will change with the Cybertruck...a vehicle marketed towards the blue collar crowd....maybe? Until now Tesla and that crowd is not compatible in my humble outsider observation opinion.

You just have to picture that truck, or your Tesla model S, or your VW E Golf, as Golf Carts.
The controller and basic layout of the electrical system is not much different than your Taylor Dunn industrial golf truck....
That's why the manufacturers are excited to build these.... There is nothing to them..... Way more simple than gasoline engines....
Machines are building the motors..... Machines building machines.....
The profit margin is potentially huge.....
I repeat: there is nothing to them.....

I’m indifferent to the electric stuff. I don’t hate it, but there’s nothing there that I want.

I’d drive that. No question. Sounds awesome.

*but if I had that kind of cash I’d probably use it to try this racing thing out for myself. Actually, I’d pay off my mortgage first, THEN look at the racing thing.

I think the value is there, people forget that a GMC Denali 3500 spec'd out ist $80k and an F350 is around $90k. For what it does it is pretty impressive for the price.
