GMC decks out new EV Hummer SUVs and trucks with 3X delayed trim option
After the successful launch of the , the company announced new electric trucks and SUVs with many customization options, including a 3X trim option. The 3X line was originally supposed to launch in the fall of 2022, but good things come to those who wait, they say. The 3X trim package will be available for the and it will ship standard with 22-inch wheels and 35-inch off-road tires.
In general, both the SUV and the pickup come in two versions, Edition 1 and 3X. For the truck, you can get the 3X version with an optional extreme off-road package; For the SUV, you can get both models with the Off-Road Package. In addition to the increased customization options available for these vehicles, GMC has updated range estimates for upcoming models. The company announced that these trucks will go up to 355 miles per charge, though this metric drops with certain configuration packages.
For example, if you choose the Extreme Off-Road package, you’ll get rubber tires designed for mud, extra skid plates, and extra underbody cameras, but your range drops to 329 miles per charge. The original Edition 1 of these EV trucks got 330 miles in the lightest configuration, so battery technology has certainly improved since the 2020 launch. The EV SUV lineup boasts a slightly lower range, from 298 to 314. miles per charge (again, depending on the fit and configuration you choose).
GMC still has some specifications under wraps, but we do know that the new models still feature the same three-engine design as previous generations, with an estimated 1,000 horsepower. That’s a lot of getting up and going. Depending on configuration, you’ll be able to tow between 7,500 and 8,500 pounds with one of these electric beasts.
Despite a solid starting price of $80,000, consumers are definitely interested in GMC’s new electric pickup trucks. Pre-orders went live in September and quickly sold through 65,000 units. In other words, reservations are currently full, but that could change in the future. We will keep you informed. Meanwhile, GMC has plenty, including the Sierra Denali pickup and the Chevy Silverado.
