All the Off-Road Goodies on the 2022 GMC Hummer EV

2022 gmc hummer ev off road equipment


The Hummer is back for 2022, and it’s not the gas-guzzling, military-inspired behemoth you might remember from before. It’s an off-road pickup truck—an SUV is coming in 2023—powered by General Motors’ new Ultium batteries and up to three electric motors that will produce up to 1000 horsepower. Think of it as an electric rival of sorts to the Ford F-150 Raptor and Ram 1500 TRX, and if it’s going to compete with those off-road monsters it’ll need some off-road chops of its own. Here’s all the off-road equipment available on the 2022 GMC Hummer EV:

e4WD System

The Hummer Edition 1, which will start production next year, is equipped with a three-motor four-wheel-drive system with a locking front differential—the rear motors can electronically mimic a locked diff. Output is a claimed 1000 horsepower and at least 1000 lb-ft of torque.

Adaptive Air Suspension

With the available air suspension, the Hummer can be raised up to six inches to help it clear big rocks or ford water when off-roading. There are modes labeled Ingress/Egress, Normal, Terrain, and Extract.

Crab Mode

Remember when you had to do the crab walk in P.E. class? This isn’t that, thankfully. The Hummer’s front and rear wheels can steer at the same time at the same angle at low speeds, moving the truck diagonally.

Hill Descent Control

The Hummer’s hill descent control uses a combination of the vehicle’s hydraulic brakes and regenerative braking. It’s like one-pedal driving, but for off-road.

35-Inch Rubber

Like the Ford F-150 Raptor and the Ram 1500 TRX, the GMC Hummer EV comes standard with 35-inch tires from the factory. The Hummer rides on Goodyear Wrangler All Territory Mud-Terrain tires, and 37-inch tires are available as a dealer-installed option. Beadlock-capable wheels will be offered in the second model year.

Skid Plates

The Hummer EV’s battery pack and underside are protected during off-road driving by steel skid plates.

Lots of Cameras

Thanks to exterior cameras called UltraVision, the Hummer’s driver can see up to 18 different views. There are even two underbody cameras, which have protective lenses and a washer, that point forward and backward.

Off-Road Pages

Information including torque output, differential-lock engagement, pitch and roll angles, and tire pressure can be displayed through off-road widgets on the 13.4-inch touchscreen.
