One thing is certain: you have never driven anything like this all-electric luxury SUV before.
Leave it to GMC to create the all-new 2022 Hummer EV, a vehicle that is simultaneously a luxury SUV and one of the most capable off-road machines to come along in decades. To make it even more impressive, the new Hummer is all-electric, boasting 1,000 horsepower and 1,200 pound-feet of torque at the motors, translating to 11,500 pound-feet at the wheels. Oh, one more thing. Because of all that torque, the 9,000-pound Hummer is also a dragster with a 0-60 time of 3 seconds flat using its “Watts to Freedom” or “WTF” mode.
