2022 GMC Hummer EV: 1,000 hp, 350 miles of range, $112,595

•, Joel Feder

On Tuesday, GM's truck and SUV division unveiled the 2022 GMC Hummer EV pickup truck with 35-inch off-road tires, air suspension, up to three electric motors for 1,000 horsepower and 11,500 pound-feet of torque (wheel torque), and more than 350 miles of driving range.

Four models will be available, but for those looking to spend less it's going to be more than two years until their electric Hummer arrives, the spring of 2024 to be exact. GMC will kick off the Hummer lineup with the Hummer EV Edition 1, which will be available by the end of 2021.

The Hummer EV Edition 1 will have three motors—two in the back and one in the front—and more than 350 miles of driving range thanks to a 200-kwh 24-module double-stacked Ultium battery pack. With the estimated 1,000 hp and 11,500 lb-ft of torque, the Edition 1 will be capable of 0 to 60 mph in 3.0 seconds, GMC said.

All Edition 1 models will start at $112,595 and come with white paint, a Lunar Horizon interior, and "Edition 1" interior badges. The Edition 1 will have all the goodies that unleash the Hummer EV's capability: torque vectoring, air suspension, an Extract mode that lifts the truck 6 inches to give it 15.9 inches of ground clearance, adaptive dampers, a four-wheel steering system, and a driver-selectable mode GMC calls Watts to Freedom that will unleash the 3.0-second 0-60 mph time.

GMC is rolling out the Hummer EV in four phases. After the Edition 1 late next year, the Hummer EV3X will arrive in the fall of 2022, also with the three-motor drive system, torque vectoring, and Watts to Freedom mode. It will start at $99,995.
