GM Reimagines the Hummer as an EV Truck

When you think of the gargantuan Hummer that roamed the streets a decade ago, you don’t associate it with fuel efficiency. However, General Motors is prepared to change those perceptions with the upcoming release of a brand-new Hummer.

This latest iteration of the Hummer will be an EV truck.

The decision to remake the Hummer as an all-electric pickup truck certainly makes sense. After all, electric vehicles and trucks are two of the fastest-growing vehicle segments in the industry.

The new Hummer won’t be any less powerful than its predecessor. In fact, with a reported power output of nearly 1,000 horsepower thanks to its advanced electric motors, the new Hummer EV may be even more powerful than the previous iteration of the Hummer.

GM has already begun advertising for this new Hummer EV. These advertisements, which feature sports legend LeBron James, focus on the silent power that the Hummer EV is able to produce. Instead of featuring bombastic sounds and songs, these TV spots are mostly silent.

As for when you can expect this Hummer EV to join the GM lineup, it should be making its way to the GMC family in 2021. We at Stokes Automotive are certainly looking forward to its eventual arrival and will have it in stock soon.

Check Out These 2020 GMC Sierra HD Improvements

The 2020 GMC Sierra HD is a beastly truck that unites handsome design, intelligent technology, and plenty of muscle. In an interview with Sierra HD Chief Engineer Marissa West, we learned more about the impressive capabilities of this new and improved heavy duty pickup.

Bigger and better

It’s hard to improve on the GMC Sierra HD, but the next-gen model is “the most capable heavy-duty pickup for trailering in the segment,” according to West. Each dual-rear-wheel model of the truck manages a maximum towing capacity of over 30,000 pounds. Go with the gooseneck, and you’ll enjoy a maximum of 35,000 pounds.

Staying cool

With so many hardworking components, the Sierra HD needs plenty of ways to safeguard its engine. That’s why West and her crew outfitted the truck with a huge fan and radiator, along with a dual-path air intake system. The Sierra HD also boasts the new “engine after-run” feature, which helps the vehicle cool down more gradually, preventing unnecessary wear and tear from sharp temperature changes.

High-tech trailering

You’ll enjoy even more confidence when towing thanks to a huge array of trailering features. The Sierra HD offers a suite of 15 cameras, which can work in concert to let you see through your trailer. Plus, you can opt for the Rear Camera Mirror, ProGrade™ Trailering, and an in-vehicle trailering app to make towing even easier.
