    GMC EarthCruiser and Hummer Omega Edition is Here!!!

      GMC is offering premium off-road EV trucks and SUVs with upfit solutions.

    GMC is continuing to deliver on their reputation of world-class premium off-road trucks and SUVs. Today they have taken this to the EV auto war of trucks and SUVs by offering EarthCruiser's upfit solutions. A company with proven overland vehicle and global field expertise in creating a solution that is integrated onto the GMC Hummer EV product line, allowing customers to explore the world in a new way.

    The GMC EarthCruiser Innovations started with the 2019 AT4 sub-brand and has grown into the AT4X for both the Sierra and Canyon trucks. Believing in an all electric future, GMC launched the GMC Hummer EV Pickup in 2020 and the SUV in 2021 and in 2022 the Sierra EV Denali Pickup. Josh Tavel, GM Executive Chief Engineer and Battery Electric Trucks stated the following: “GMC has long been a leader in professional-grade trucks with 100-plus years of uncompromising pickup capability, luxury and driver control, we had an instant connection with EarthCruiser — a leader in the overland community — and their similar vision to accelerate the zero-tailpipe-emissions future. EarthCruiser products have proven their performance in environments around the world and we’re excited to join them on this next chapter of adventure and exploration.”

    GMC and EarthCruiser have come together in their shared vision to develop top-tier, zero-compromise adventure vehicles, leveraging EarthCruiser’s engineering technologies that have resulted in unique and innovative self-contained living habitats, while keeping capability and agility at the forefront.

    “EarthCruiser designs its vehicles to thrive in the most extreme, toughest environments imaginable,” said EarthCruiser CEO/Founder Lance Gillies. “From the Australian Outback to the Alaskan wilderness and everywhere in between, an EarthCruiser was made to tackle tough terrain. As we consider the future of overlanding, we are continuing to look toward key technologies like electrification that will help us explore for decades to come. Electrification presents exciting opportunities for overland use, such as precise torque control over terrain and ease-of-use, in addition to zero-tailpipe emissions. We’re thrilled to be working with GM’s team of top-tier EV engineers and look to develop an overland vehicle that’s truly made for, and will define, the future of this industry.”

    The GMC HUMMER EV overlander concept will be unveiled in late summer 2023.

    This was not the only thing GMC unveiled this past week about the GMC Hummer EV portfolio, they also announced a new Limited Edition 2024 Hummer EV Omega Edition that will come in its limited edition Neptune Blue Matte exterior paint color.

    The Omega Edition evolves the HUMMER EV story and its space-themed inspiration. A theme that influenced the HUMMER EV’s design and engineering teams from inception to production as they created this ‘moonshot’ vehicle, with the endless expanses of space reflecting the boundless inspiration for what was possible with the world’s first electric supertruck. Now with Omega Edition, designers took inspiration from deep into the solar system; the Blue Planet, to create the stunning and unique Neptune Blue Matte paint that sets this latest HUMMER EV apart.  

    In terms of hardware, the Extreme Off-Road Package for both the HUMMER EV Pickup and SUV includes UltraVision with underbody camera views, additional skid plates and rocker protection with built-in assist steps, 18-inch wheels and 35-inch Mud Terrain tires.

    The SUV will be offered with a standard 20-module battery. The Pickup will be offered with a 24-module battery option.

    Pricing for the HUMMER EV Omega Edition Pickup starts at $149,995 for the 24-module battery. The SUV with 20-module battery will start at $139,995. Customer deliveries are expected to begin in the first half of 2024. The Omega Edition will initially be available for current HUMMER EV 3X Pickup and SUV reservation holders.

    • Perhaps the Godzilla engines will last that long, but it will depend on what rivals come out with also, that engine may not be competitive in 5 years.  But I could see 10 more years of gas V8s in the Super Duty's, they'll be long gone in an F150, the 2025 Ram has no V8, the Silverado probably won't in 5 years, they are already pushing the 4-cylinder Silverado.
    • I so facepalm this as I totally agree with you, I have come to feel Washington state needs to have yearly vehicle safety inspections. I am seeing so many autos from the South/Southeast that are in terrible condition driving on the roads with same issues or worse, accident damage that has fenders, bumpers, etc. bent way out that could hurt people as well as cause damage to other autos. The number of autos I am seeing on the road with no taillights, single headlight, no markers working, third cyclops brake light not working, time to make people realize driving is a privilege earned and not a right and driving dangerous autos on the road is a danger to all.
    • They will absolutely have a gasoline V8 in the Super Duties in 2030. They're both brand new like a year or two ago. They could leave them untouched, in this segment, and ride them out until 2035, easily. The old 6.2 was built for the SDs until 2022, when it was replaced by the 6.8 pushrod v8, which was in addition to the 7.3.  The V8's in the Super Duty are not based off the 5.0. They're both pushrod V8's, 6.8L & 7.3L. The SDs are the only application for this pair of engines. 
    • Also reminded the other day how Ohio has no safety inspections...saw a 90s GMT 400 era Chevy pickup rolling down the road with crazy front wheel camber and the bed sides rusted and flared out/sagging on each side, rusted front fenders and doors.    Also was behind for a while a mid 90s S10 pickup, riding lower on the left side than the right with what I thought was a big mud flap flapping in the wind on the right...but it was ahead of the rear wheel.  It pulled off later and I got a good view of the right side, the 'flap' was a big chunk of rear bed side/fender that was rusted out and hanging loose behind the cab ahead of the wheel arch... 
    • GM's turbo 4 is a better move, but that 3.6 V6 had issues anyway so I don't think it is as hard to replace, compared to the VQ engines that were great in their day but are past their prime now.  But everyone does this, and 2024 Mercedes E350 makes 13 less horsepower than a 2007 E350 and nearly 50 less hp than a 2012 E350.  The goal is all fuel economy and reducing emissions now, big engines are dead, and it's kind of sad.
