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.
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.
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.
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.
