GMC’s latest electric truck can go the distance.
The Hummer EV 3X pickup is a new trim that slots below the limited availability Edition 1 and features a longer driving range.
The 3X has the same 1,000-horsepower tri-motor drivetrain, but it comes with less standard off-road gear and rides on a 22-inch wheel and tire package that helps extend the distance it can go between charges from 329 miles to 355 miles.
The full-size truck also gets a bump in its tow rating from 7,500 pounds to 8,500 pounds and carries over the Edition 1’s air suspension and four-wheel steering system with a CrabWalk model that allows it to drive diagonally at 10 degrees.

Customers can opt for an Extreme Off-Road Package that adds 18-inch wheels with aggressively-knobby 35-inch mud terrain tires, skid plates, rocker protection and drivetrain upgrades that bring it back to near the Edition 1’s specifications and drop the range and towing back down to 329 miles and 7,500 pounds.

Exact pricing for the Hummer EV 3X pickup will be released closer to when it goes on sale this fall, but it was previously advertised at $104,650 and will be followed by a 3X version of the Hummer EV SUV.
Production of the Hummer EV SUV Edition 1 began in January, and the 3X follows the pickup’s formula of making the Extreme Off-Road Package an option.

The driving range for the 830-horsepower Hummer EV SUV 3X is 314 miles per charge, due largely to having a smaller battery pack than the pickup, and is 289 miles with the Extreme Off-Road Package.
GMC only delivered two Hummers during the first quarter of this year due to a recall but is planning to ramp up production in the coming months. It has than 90,000 reservations combined for the pickup and SUV.
