The new GMC Hummer EV has been revealed, reviving the nameplate for a 986bhp pick-up that will offer “unprecedented off-road capability and extraordinary on-road performance”, as the company claims.

The Hummer is back for 2022, and it’s not the gas-guzzling, military-inspired behemoth you might remember from before. It’s an off-road pickup truck—an SUV is coming in 2023—powered by General Motors’ new Ultium batteries and up to three electric motors that will produce up to 1000 horsepower. Think of it as an electric rival of sorts to the Ford F-150 Raptor and Ram 1500 TRX, and if it’s going to compete with those off-road monsters it’ll need some off-road chops of its own.

Here’s all the off-road equipment available on the 2022 GMC Hummer EV:

  • e4WD System – The Hummer Edition 1, which will start production next year, is equipped with a three-motor four-wheel-drive system with a locking front differential—the rear motors can electronically mimic a locked diff.
  • Adaptive Air Suspension – With the available air suspension, the Hummer can be raised up to six inches to help it clear big rocks or ford water when off-roading.
  • Crab Mode – The Hummer’s front and rear wheels can steer at the same time at the same angle at low speeds, moving the truck diagonally.
  • Hill Descent Control – Hummer’s hill descent control uses a combination of the vehicle’s hydraulic brakes and regenerative braking.
  • 35-Inch Rubber – GMC Hummer EV comes standard with 35-inch tires from the factory.
  • Skid Plates – Hummer EV’s battery pack and underside are protected during off-road driving by steel skid plates.
  • Lots of Cameras – Exterior cameras called UltraVision, the Hummer’s driver can see up to 18 different views.
  • Off-Road Pages – Information including torque output, differential-lock engagement, pitch and roll angles, and tire pressure can be displayed through off-road widgets on the 13.4-inch touchscreen.

Al Oppenheiser, the Hummer EV’s chief engineer, claimed the vehicle will be “an absolute off-road beast”, with the e4WD system giving it “ manoeuvrability unlike anything GM has ever offered before”.

All four roof panels will fit inside the Hummer’s frunk for storage. A vinyl storage bag will be standard, but more fastidious owners can also opt for the optional foam storage boxes that will be available as a dealer accessory.

The Hummer brand, which sold a range of road vehicles based on the military Humvee from 1992 and 2009, has been resurrected by owner General Motors as a new sub-brand to its GMC marque for a range of electric off-road vehicles for the US market. The Tesla Supertruck rival that will start the range will go into production late next year ahead of sales beginning in 2022.
