This Week In Trucks: Volume 8

Hummer On The Silver Screen

GMC and A&E Networks just announced the premiere of a new documentary that follows the development of the much-anticipated all-electric supertruck.

The hour-long production allows audiences to follow a small group of General Motors staff, over approximately a two-year period, where they helped conceive the automaker’s first EV in the segment. The film crew were granted rare behind-the-scenes access to key points of the vehicle’s development.


From the frozen Upper Peninsula of Michigan to the sunbaked red rocks of Moab, Utah, viewers get to witness the HUMMER EV undergo evaluation in various extreme environments, as well as never-before-seen footage of GM’s testing and development facilities. Catch it on the GMC YouTube channel April 3.

Inside, the 10-inch Uconnect 5 touchscreen display is five times faster than the outgoing infotainment system and boasts split-screen functionality.
