A recent report by GM-trucks.com claims that the upcoming 2022 GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 truck will have a curb weight of 9,046 lbs. This is an unofficial vehicle weight for the fully-optioned Edition 1 truck. This includes the biggest and heaviest (approx. 200 kWh) battery, three motors with 1,000 horsepower, e4WD, four-wheel-steering, height-adjustable suspension, active shocks, luxurious interior, and more. If this is confirmed, this puts the new Hummer EV truck smack in the middle of the traditional heavy-duty truck territory.
GMC officially confirms these weight specification and adds:
“The GMC HUMMER EV – the world’s first all-electric super truck – has unmatched super capabilities, all in a zero-emissions package. With specs like 1,000 horsepower, 11,500 lb.-ft. of torque and a blistering 0-60mph time of 3-seconds, the GMC HUMMER EV Pickup is bound to shatter expectations of what an electric vehicle can do.“
How does this 9,046 lbs curb weight compare to other traditional trucks? For example, a new 2021 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD crew cab 4×4 diesel-V8 truck has a starting curb weight of 7,721 lbs. This is according to Chevrolet specifications. This diesel Silverado 2500 with additional options may be pushing close to 8,000 lbs of curb weight.
We initially anticipated the Hummer truck to be in the heavy-duty classification due to its 8-lug wheel hubs. GMC says that the 8-lug Hummer EV bolt pattern is actually a little bit smaller in diameter when compared to that of a traditional HD truck.
The same GM-trucks.com source says that the Hummer EV truck will have a GVWR of 10,400 lbs. This is on par with the current 3/4-ton HD truck Gross Vehicle Weight Ratings. Most 3/4-ton trucks have a GVWR of 10,000 lbs, but some go over a bit.
This means the Hummer electric truck has about 1,354 lbs of maximum payload.
