Is this what the Hummer pickup truck will look like? We think so.
General Motors (GMC, to be more specific) recently released information on its Hummer EV pickup truck along with a shadowy teaser image. Now, we've transformed that teaser into this rad and very rugged render.
GM is set to debut a commercial at the 2020 Super Bowl tomorrow. The ad, reportedly to feature LeBron James, will tease the Hummer EV pickup truck (the full reveal is set for May 20 of this year). However, ahead of that ad spot, we've rendered the teaser of the truck to life by lightening the image, taking some very educated guesses and adding some details and filling in some missing elements.
For comparison, here's the teaser image released by GM:
The end result is a very bold-looking truck that's fitting of the Hummer brand and logo. Note the skidplate, which is always found on a Hummer. Additionally, there are some beefy tow hooks for those times when the truck is used to tug out a less capable vehicle. The lights up top give the truck that a certain commercial-duty appearance and the substantial tires indicate this is a go-anywhere pickup, as a Hummer should be.
Now you might be thinking this truck, in rendered form, seems far too big. However, Hummer does refer to it as a super truck and with it being a Hummer, we don't expect anything dainty or small. "Go big or go home" was a motto that Hummer tried to stick to back in the days. The automaker, unfortunately, "went home" when gas prices skyrocketed, but that's not an issue with an electric vehicle, so it seems quite likely to us that Hummer will "go big" once again.
There's one more part of the Hummer truck that we believe to be big and that's its battery. We believe we may have seen the actual massive pack that will go into this electric truck, so with a battery of very high capacity, a truck even of this size will still have ample range.
Specs for the upcoming Hummer truck include:
- 1,000 HP
- 11,500 pound-feet of torque
- 0 to 60 in 3 seconds
The electric Hummer truck is expected to launch in Fall 2021. No pricing information is available at this time. Range remains a mystery too.
Here's one more stab at rendering the truck to life. This one features an extended skidplate, as seen on the Hummer HX concept further down below:
Back to that Super Bowl ad, GM states:
The 30-second TV spot is scheduled to air during the second quarter of the big game. The spot highlights the anticipated performance of GMC’s all-electric super truck, which will generate remarkable metrics in terms of horsepower, torque and acceleration while providing incredible on- and off-road capability. All of this is combined with the vastly reduced noise and zero emissions inherent in the operation of an electric vehicle.
Below we've included a few more Hummer images to peruse. This first one contains both images of the Hummer electric truck, as teased by GM.
