New GM Electric Pickup Coming in 2021

General Motors CEO Mary Barra recently revealed that the company is adding a GM electric pickup to its lineup. This new truck is currently set to debut in the fall of 2021 as a revolutionary option for truck enthusiasts wanting to save money on fuel and be conscious of the environment.

The truck is expected to be offered as either a GMC Sierra 1500 trim or a Chevrolet Silverado 1500 trim. According to a Reuters interview, Barra shared, “It will be a very capable truck, I’m pretty excited about it.”

Apart from that, we don’t know much about this truck so far, but it will be a welcome addition to the GM lineup, which offers the Chevrolet Bolt EV as its only electric vehicle in the U.S.

In addition to introducing this new electric pickup, GM is also launching an all-electric GMC HUMMER EV. This powerful model will reach an impressive 1,000 horsepower and 11,500 lb-ft of torque, while also producing zero emissions. The repurposed Detroit-Hamtramck plant will be producing the upcoming GM electric vehicles and their components moving forward.

At Stokes Automotive in Clanton, Alabama, we proudly offer an array of Chevrolet and GMC models, and we look forward to adding the new trucks to our inventory. If you’re interested in learning about the models currently in our inventory or the new models set to arrive on our lot, give us a call to speak with a staff member.

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.
