The order books are already open for the 2022 GMC Hummer EV that debuted last night. And it looks like the reimagined icon will be quite a bit more expensive than the Tesla Cybertruck—not to mention other emerging electric pickups. Prices will start at $79,995 for the base Hummer EV, on the high end of the full-size pickup market, but we’ll have to wait a long time for that version, which will be the least-expensive Hummer variant.
GMC Hummer EV—Not Exactly Coming Soon
In fact, that base model won’t arrive until spring 2024, packing a two-motor drive system and estimated range of more than 250 miles. These trucks are quite potent, delivering 625 hp and a healthy 7,400 lb-ft of torque. The 2X trim steps up to more than 300 miles of range, as well as extra goodies such as adaptive air suspension, four-wheel steer, and a “CrabWalk” function for additional off-road prowess and will retail for $89,995 when it arrives in spring 2023. Will any tax incentives apply to the GMC Hummer EV? Nope. Since GM surpassed 200,000 electric vehicle sales a while ago, don’t expect a federal tax credit to help offset any of the Hummer’s cost.
On the 3X trim, a three-motor system increases output to 800 hp and 9,500 lb-ft of torque. This model goes for $99,995 and is available in fall 2022. Reservations are already full for the 2022 GMC Hummer EV Edition 1, which arrives in fall 2021 with a starting price of $112,595. The early birds who managed to snag one of these copies will get a tri-motor system pumping out 1,000 hp and a whopping 11,500 lb-ft of torque. Other goodies include an extreme off-road package, an Infinity Roof with removable transparent panels, and exclusive interior badging.
The Hummer EV will cost a pretty penny when compared to some rivals. The Tesla Cybertruck will supposedly start at $39,900 for the base single-motor configuration (although Tesla isn’t known for achieving its most radical price promises), $49,900 for the dual-motor version, and $69,900 for the tri-motor truck. Meanwhile, the Lordstown Endurance is going for $52,500. The Rivian R1T is priced at $69,000 and up. Finally, we still don’t have pricing details for the upcoming Ford F-150 Electric. We can’t wait to test all these trucks someday to see if they’re worth their weight in gold.
