GMC, the automobile manufacturer, has introduced new electric trucks and SUVs, following the successful launch of the GMC Hummer EV Pickup. The company now offers plenty of customization options, including a 3X trim package, which was delayed but will be available for the 2023 Hummer EV Pickup and the 2024 Hummer EV SUV. The 3X package comes with 22-inch wheels and 35-inch all-terrain tires. The SUV and pickup both come in two trims: Edition 1 and 3X, with an optional extreme off-road package for the 3X pickup and both models of the SUV.
GMC has updated range estimates for the forthcoming models, stating that they will travel up to 355 miles per charge, although this range does decrease with certain configurations. For instance, opting for the Extreme Off-Road Package reduces the range to 329 miles per charge. The original Edition 1 of these EV trucks got 330 miles in the lightest configuration, so the battery technology has definitely improved since the 2020 launch. The EV SUV line offers a slightly lower range of 298 to 314 miles per charge, depending on the chosen trim and configuration.
Although GMC has yet to disclose some specs, it is known that the new models will feature the same three-motor layout as previous generations, with an estimated 1,000 horsepower. The electric trucks can tow between 7,500 and 8,500 pounds, depending on the configuration. Despite a starting price tag of $80,000, consumer interest in GMC’s new electric trucks is high. Pre-orders went live in September and sold out quickly, with 65,000 units reserved.
GMC’s customizable options for its new electric trucks and SUVs make them even more appealing to potential customers. The 3X trim package, which is now available, offers larger wheels and tires that enhance the vehicle’s off-road capabilities. In addition, the EV trucks and SUVs will travel up to 355 miles per charge, providing ample range for long journeys. Moreover, these electric trucks are powerful, boasting an estimated 1,000 horsepower and a towing capacity of up to 8,500 pounds.
However, the starting price of $80,000 may be prohibitive for some buyers, although the interest in the vehicles has been high. With pre-orders selling out quickly, reservations for the trucks are currently full, but availability may change in the future. The forthcoming electric vehicles from GMC, such as the Sierra Denali truck and the Chevy Silverado, are eagerly anticipated by car enthusiasts.
