GMC leveraged March Madness to reveal the 2024 Hummer EV SUV to the world over the weekend. While the revived Hummer was shown, GMC didn’t offer up all the details or photos. Today the company is releasing more content, including the fact the SUV will be more geared toward off-roading than the truck.
The Hummer EV SUV is actually 9 inches shorter in the wheelbase than the truck. In fact, it’s actually a staggering 20-inches shorter than the truck in overall length, which does not show much in photos. The tighter dimensions are going to make the SUV far more maneuverable in suburbia parking lots, but also on the off-road trail.
GMC says the Hummer EV SUV has an approach angle of 49.6 degrees, a 49.0-degree departure angle and a 34.4-degree breakover angle. These stats paired with an impressive 37.1-foot turning circle should make the SUV a fairly decent off-roader. Thanks to Extract Mode, the 13 inches of suspension travel can temporarily increase to 16 inches to get out of tough terrain. Off-roaders will also appreciate the optional Ultravision system, which includes 17 cameras, including some mounted underneath the vehicle. Only 14 cameras are standard on the Hummer. Yes, 14.
Inside there aren’t many deviations from the truck. Buyers will enjoy a 13.4-inch infotainment touchscreen, while the gauge cluster is comprised of a 12.3-inch screen. Both screens will leverage a new infotainment system developed by a video game maker. Other technology perks include a power-swinging rear door to access the cargo area and a cool Infinity Roof with removable panels similar to a Jeep Wrangler. The Hummer will also be able to act as a power generator to other devices, including other electric vehicles.
Speaking of cargo area, GMC says the Hummer will offer up to 81.8 cubic feet of space when the second row seats are folded down. To put that into perspective, that’s about 10 cubic feet more than what is offered behind the second row in a Chevrolet Tahoe. So for those needing a Tahoe-sized vehicle, this probably isn’t for you.
Additional storage can be found under the rear cargo area and, of course, the frunk.
