2024 GMC Hummer EV Review: Specs and Pricing


2024 GMC Hummer EV

Overview


Experience the unparalleled power and performance of the 2024 GMC Hummer EV, the ultimate electric supertruck. With up to 1000 horsepower and a tri-motor all-wheel-drive configuration featuring a revolutionary WTF mode (Watts to Freedom), this beast accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in a breathtaking 3.3 seconds. While its impressive driving range of up to 381 miles sets a new standard, the Extreme Off-Road package, equipped with 35-inch mud-terrain tires and enhanced underbody armor, ensures unrivaled capability on any terrain.

Boasting a five-foot bed, height-adjustable air suspension, rear-axle steering, and GM's cutting-edge Super Cruise technology for hands-free driving, the Hummer EV delivers unmatched versatility and innovation. Although its interior may not match its premium price tag, the 2024 Hummer EV stands alone on the road and trails, offering a one-of-a-kind driving experience. Discover the future of electric supertrucks with the 2024 GMC Hummer EV.


Competitors of GMC Hummer EV


The Ford F-150 Lightning brings electrification to the familiar and trusted F-150 platform, positioning itself as the most conventional EV pickup on the market. Positioned between the F-150 Lightning and the exhilarating Hummer EV is the Rivian R1T, boasting a slightly smaller footprint but packing ample power and off-road prowess. Additionally, on the horizon are the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV and GMC Sierra EV, closely linked to the Hummer EV.

What has changed for 2024?


Later this year, GMC is anticipated to unveil a more accessible variant of the Hummer pickup, projected to maintain a price point above $85,000. As we anticipate further information on this model, the top-tier EV3X edition boasts enhanced range estimates compared to its predecessor, courtesy of the newly introduced 24-module battery pack. With GMC's assertion of a $9995 option, this upgrade is said to elevate the truck's peak range per charge to an impressive 381 miles.


2024 Hummer EV: EV Motor and Performance


The Hummer EV currently offers a choice between two or three electric motors, both providing all-wheel drive capabilities. The dual-motor configuration delivers 570 horsepower, while the tri-motor version boasts a staggering 1000 horsepower. During our test of the Hummer EV Edition 1 equipped with the latter, its acceleration to 60 mph in just 3.3 seconds was truly impressive, courtesy of its Watts to Freedom (WTF) launch control driving mode, marking it as one of the fastest pickups we've ever evaluated. However, while acceleration dazzled, braking performance left much to be desired. Bringing the hefty vehicle to a halt from 70 mph required an extended distance of 211 feet, accompanied by noticeable brake fade after repeated stops. Maneuverability at low speeds surpassed expectations, thanks to the rear-wheel-steering system, yet once in motion, the Hummer EV exhibited the expected challenges of driving a lifted vehicle, reminiscent of other large trucks on the road.


2024 Hummer EV: Battery Life, Charging, and Range


The Hummer EV offers flexibility with two battery options. The standard 20-module pack delivers an EPA-estimated range of 311 miles for the EV2X and 314 miles for the EV3X. Opting for the latter, equipped with a 24-module battery, extends the range up to an impressive 381 miles, although the Extreme Off-Road package reduces this to 359 miles. During our test of the Hummer EV Edition 1 on a 75-mph highway route, it covered 290 miles on a full charge. While it achieved a peak charging rate of 287 kilowatts with a DC fast charger, the average rate was 98 kW, taking over two hours to charge from 10 to 90 percent. GMC claims a 100-mile range addition in just 10 minutes; however, in our experience, it took about twice as long.



2024 Hummer EV: Capacity for Towing and Payload


The Hummer EV pickup showcases impressive towing capabilities with a robust maximum capacity of 12,000 pounds, achievable with the 570-horsepower dual-motor powertrain. This surpasses the towing ratings of competitors such as the Ford F-150 Lightning and the Rivian R1T, which are rated at up to 10,000 and 11,000 pounds, respectively. However, models equipped with three motors offer a slightly lower towing capacity ranging between 7500 and 8500 pounds.


2024 Hummer EV: Interior and Comfort


2024 GMC Hummer EV Interior

While traditional Hummers were predominantly SUVs, the Hummer EV takes on the form of a crew-cab pickup truck featuring a five-foot-long bed. Although the interior materials may not meet the expectations set by the Hummer's price point, and its cabin space falls short of the GMC Sierra 1500 crew cabs, it offers a unique feature: optional removable roof panels that harken back to the T-top design popular in GM sports and muscle cars of the 1970s and 1980s. These transparent panels, when in place, resemble a standard panoramic glass sunroof, but removing and stowing them in the front trunk gives the Hummer EV a convertible feel akin to the Jeep Gladiator. Inside, the Hummer EV incorporates several moon-inspired touches, including a moon-boot footprint on the dead pedal and speaker grilles featuring designs reminiscent of the Sea of Tranquility, serving as overt nods to GM's association with NASA astronauts and the electrically powered Apollo 15 lunar rover that the company contributed to engineering.


2024 Hummer EV: Connectivity


The Hummer EV boasts a 13.4-inch infotainment display, complemented by a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel. In a unique collaboration, GMC enlisted Epic Games—the immensely popular Fortnite video game creators—to design the graphics for the Hummer EV's infotainment interface. While the high-resolution screen and sophisticated graphics present an impressive visual experience, we observed noticeable lag, indicating that the system may lack the necessary processing power to leverage its capabilities fully. Standard connectivity features include wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and GM's OnStar telematics system, ensuring seamless integration and access to a range of services.


2024 Hummer EV: Pricing


The 2024 GMC Hummer EV Pickup is priced between $98,845 and $106,945, varying according to trim levels and optional features:


Model

Price

Hummer EV2x

$98,845

Hummer EV3x

$106,945

Which one to Purchase?


To enhance our Hummer EV experience, we'd opt for the Hummer EV3X, which offers a significant boost in horsepower and features the impressive Watts to Freedom launch-control mode, perfect for exhilarating takeoffs that will surely impress. While the tri-motor models with the standard battery boast an EPA-estimated range of 314 miles, selecting the optional extended-range battery elevates this to an impressive 381 miles. Instead of the larger battery pack, we'd choose the Extreme Off-Road package, sacrificing some range for enhanced off-road capability, including beadlock-capable 35-inch mud-terrain tires, reinforced axles, locking differentials, additional underbody protection, and expanded camera perspectives. For added readiness on rugged terrain, we'd opt for the separate Off-Road Readiness package, which includes a full-size spare tire matching the other wheels and a vertical bed-mounted carrier. To fully embrace outdoor adventures, we'd also select the available removable roof panels.


2024 GMC Hummer EV VS. Rivian R1T


The R1T presents itself as a conventional pickup, straddling the line between mid-size and full-size categories, yet it conceals remarkable power beneath its exterior. With up to 835 horsepower in its four-motor configuration, it falls short of the Hummer EV's formidable 1,000-plus figure but remains impressive nonetheless. Even the dual-motor version boasts a respectable 600 horsepower. Additionally, the R1T boasts a considerably lighter weight and can tow up to 11,000 pounds. Its more compact dimensions also make it likely to fit comfortably in a standard garage, whereas the 7-foot-wide Hummer might require outdoor parking.


2024 GMC Hummer EV VS. Ram 1500


In the realm of truck performance and boldness, the Hummer EV stands as a pinnacle of electric innovation, making it a natural comparison with the Ram 1500 TRX, representing the epitome of traditional gas-powered truck performance. While other electric trucks await their turn in the pipeline — including the Chevrolet Silverado EV, GMC Sierra EV, Ram Rev, and the Tesla Cybertruck — the TRX offers an alternative to electric power with its 702-horsepower supercharged V8 engine and specialized off-road suspension. Similar to the Hummer, the TRX exudes an unmistakable presence, but unlike the silent approach of the Hummer EV, the roaring engine of the TRX announces its arrival from afar.
