Video: What’s the Best, Cheapest, and Quickest EV Truck? Hummer, Cybertruck, Rivian, Bollinger, or the F-150 Hybrid

The Hummer has less driving range than Tesla and Rivian.

Now that we know most specifications and details about the upcoming 2022 GMC Hummer EV, how does it stack up against competition? What will it compete against? I picked three off-road worthy upcoming electric truck and a 2021 Ford F-150 Hybrid to represent the mainstream and a more affordable option. The F-150 Hybrid is expected to reach dealers this year, most of the electric trucks are at least one year away or more.

As you can see, GMC is stating a “grounded torque” figure for the new Hummer EV. The combined motor torque multiplied by the gearing. Rivian started showing the grounded torque specs in November 2018. The other manufacturers are listing their torque figures at the engine and/or motor.

What does it all mean? Let’s hope we can continue to talk about combined motor torque and not “grounded torque” in the future. How much grounded torque does the 2021 Ford F-150 Hybrid have? The total torque output is 570 lb-ft. Now, we need to multiply it by maximum crawl ratio. The crawl ratio is: 1st gear * low-range * rear differential = (4.69 * 2.69 * 3.73) = 47.05. The total F-150 Hybrid grounded torque is: 570 lb-ft * 47.05 = 26,823 lb-ft.
