Unleash the Fun: The Hummer EV SUV – The Ultimate Off-Road Titan

It might seem impractical at first, but spend a few days driving it and you'll see that practicality is for other vehicles. The Hummer is all about having fun.

When Hummer relaunched last year, it did so with an audacious roar, unveiling its EV pickup that screamed power and fun in equal measure. Now, the spotlight shifts to its SUV variant – a beast that’s not just a trimmed-down version of its pickup sibling, but an off-road juggernaut with its own unique flair.

What Exactly Is It?

Imagine a vehicle that looks like it rolled straight out of a sci-fi video game, particularly Halo, painted in Moonshot Green Matte. The Edition 1 SUV brings all the cutting-edge tech from the pickup – including the jaw-dropping crab walk, WTF mode, and Supercruise – and amps up the off-road capabilities. It’s shorter, nimbler, and ready to conquer terrain that would make a mountain goat break a sweat.

The SUV version has cut down about 20 inches in length and nine inches in wheelbase from the pickup, making it more agile without sacrificing any of its might. The rear overhang, a limiting factor in the pickup's departure angle, is gone. Instead, the spare tire is smartly tucked onto the rear door, enhancing its off-road prowess.

Off-Roading with the Best

Let’s get one thing straight: this SUV is a powerhouse. With the Extreme Off-Road Package, you’re looking at 18-inch wheels wrapped in 35-inch off-road tires, underbody armor, rock sliders, front e-lockers, rear virtual lockers, and a bevy of trail cameras. This SUV isn’t just for the faint-hearted. It’s for those who want to go over, around, or through any obstacle in their path.

Range and Charging: The Real-World Scenario

Sure, the SUV’s 20-module battery offers a range of 300 miles, a bit less than the pickup’s 350 miles with its 24-module battery. Charging peaks at 300kW, compared to the pickup’s 350kW. But in reality, after a few WTF mode launches, the difference is negligible. Factor in the SUV’s additional 250 pounds over the pickup, and you’ve got a range where every mile counts. But hey, who’s counting when you’re having this much fun?

Practicality: Size Doesn’t Always Matter

Need to haul a ton of gear? The pickup’s 5ft-long bed is your best bet. But the SUV’s 81.8 cubic feet of rear load space isn’t far behind, comfortably accommodating five people and their luggage. Need more room? The SUV can tow up to 7,500 pounds, making it a versatile powerhouse for any adventure.

The Verdict: Sensible? Never. Fun? Absolutely.

In the world of SUVs, the Hummer EV stands alone. It’s massive, it’s heavy, and it’s over-the-top in every conceivable way. But once you get behind the wheel, the sheer joy and excitement make all the “sensible” considerations melt away. Yes, it’s a beast that needs frequent charging and yes, navigating narrow streets or fitting into small parking garages can be a chore. But for those who crave adventure and fun, the Hummer EV SUV is a dream come true.

Ready to join the fun? Be prepared to wait and shell out over $100k. But one thing’s for sure: this is a ride that will surprise and delight, leaving you grinning from ear to ear every time you take it out.

So, why be sensible when you can drive the Hummer EV SUV and redefine what an SUV can be? Get ready for the ride of your life!
