Overall, the 2022 GMC Hummer EV is an impressive vehicle. A potential drawback is a cost. Start at $110,295 for the base “Edition 1,” which includes all features and options. The base price of the upcoming $99,995 EV3X trim is more than GM’s promised sub-$80,000 trim by Spring 2023.

At present, the Hummer EV can only be equipped with a powertrain consisting of three electric motors, which together can generate 1000 horsepower. Standard all-wheel drive and a “Watts to Freedom launch control” option that let the Hummer EV reach 60 mph in 3.3 seconds during our tests.

When it came to stopping, though, we were less than impressed. It took an unusually long 211 feet to bring the Hummer EV’s mass to a stop from 70 miles per hour, and brake wear became obvious after repeated stops.

As for the Hummer EV’s payload and trailering capacities, GMC claims 7500 pounds. However, other electric pickups, such as the Rivian R1T and the Ford F-150 Lightning, can tow up to 11,000 and 10,000 pounds, respectively. The Hummer EV’s range plummeted to barely 140 miles at 70 mph when we towed a 6100-pound, double-axle camping trailer.
