The all-new GMC Hummer EV is here, at least its pickup version. However, this won’t be the only new Hummer to come. We expect to see an SUV iteration as well, most likely as the 2024 GMC Hummer SUV. Of course, this model will have a lot of things in common with the new pickup, starting from the drivetrain, battery and overall design approach.
However, this version will also come with a lot of exclusive features. Of course, the first thing that comes to mind is the SUV layout, which should make this Hummer a pretty capable family hauler. Further, the SUV versions will feature a notably shorter wheelbase compared to the pickup.
Naturally, both versions will take a lot of inspiration from the famous predecessors. This particularly refers to the styling, while the interior will be all-new and it will bring a far more upscale layout, with a higher level of comfort and convenience.
We expect that the 2024 GMC Hummer SUV will hit the market sometime in the second half of 2023.
2024 GMC Hummer SUV Design
Design-wise, the new 2024 GMC Hummer SUV will have a lot of things in common with the pickup version, which is coming this year. The two models will ride on GM’s new platform, designed for all-electric cars only, with the new Ultium battery technology.
When it comes to dimensions, the SUV will feature a notably shorter wheelbase than a pickup, 126.7 inches versus 135.6 in the pickup. Therefore, the SUV will certainly be more maneuverable and easier to drive, even though the suspension setup is about to remain the same or very similar. We are talking about the standard adjustable air suspension, which will be able to raise the ground clearance for a full 6 inches.
When it comes to the exterior design, expect no surprises. The new 2024 GMC Hummer SUV will closely resemble its predecessor and the front end will look pretty much identical to the upcoming pickup. The only difference will be in the rear end of the vehicle, where the open cargo bed is going to be replaced with a typical SUV rear roof end.
The same level of similarity is expected on the inside as well, starting from the dashboard, which will look identical. This cabin offers a lot o futuristic design solutions but also comes with a couple of unique details, such as a moon-boot footprint on the dead pedal and speaker grilles that show the Sea of Tranquility. They serve as a reminder of the fact that GM had a big part in developing a lunar rover for Apollo missions.
The overall cabin design looks pretty upscale and pretty futuristic design, while the overall build quality looks pretty impressive. Of course, the dash is highlighted by a couple of massive screens, though GMC designers also decided to keep a big portion of physical controls. We also like the T-shaped shifter and a rotary drive-mode selector on the center console very much, while another nice feature is that removable roof panel. Also, the company claims an overall cargo volume of 82 cubic feet.
The 2024 GMC Hummer SUV will come with a full load of tech features. We already mentioned a couple of massive screens – a 12.3-inch unit works as an instrument cluster, while the infotainment screen is good for about 13.4 inches. The list of standard equipment should also include goodies like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a subscription-based Wi-Fi hotspot. On the other hand, goodies like wireless charging, premium stereo system, built-in navigation, a rear-seat infotainment system and similar things.
When it comes to safety, we expect that all models will come standard with things like forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control etc. Of course, we count on a couple of options as well, including the SuperCruise automatic cruise control.
2024 GMC Hummer SUV Powertrain
At this point, we know that the 2024 GMC Hummer SUV will come in, at least, three variants regarding drivetrain setup. Base models will come with a dual-motor setup, with a total output of 625 horsepower. On the other hand, the Edition 1 version will feature three electric motors and a total output of 830 horsepower. With all that power, we expect 0-60 time in about 3.5 seconds.
All versions should come with a 200-kWh battery pack, which will ensure a max range of more than 300 miles.
2024 GMC Hummer SUV Release Date and Price
We expect that the 2024 GMC Hummer SUV release date will be scheduled for the second half of 2023. The base version will cost around 80.000 dollars, while the range-topping Edition 1 model is expected to go around $105.000. We presume that the Rivian R1S will be one of the key competitors.
