The Hummer EV SUV has grown a pop-up tent on the roof, and it now looks ready for a weekend in the great outdoors.
When GMC revealed the Hummer EV pickup and SUV in October 2020, and April 2021, respectively, the first thing that came to the enthusiasts' minds was adventure. Off-road, off-grid, offline adventure. And look at the vehicle now. It can check those boxes during an extended weekend without the occupants needing to find accommodation.

What you see in the photo above is the aftermath of the GMC - Earth Cruiser collaboration. The rendering previews the production version of the SUV-tent combo, set to hit the market in early 2024.

Back in March this year, the two companies partnered up to build an up-fitted overloading great for the Hummer EV. But it was not much that they revealed five months ago. It is only now that we find out the off-roader receives a pop-up tent on the roof.

The tent features transparent walls all around, but star gazing would not be an option, since the roof of the roof tent is not transparent. Flood lights secure the necessary visibility inside and even around the vehicle.

The rendering shows a lump inside the tent mounted on the roof of the Hummer EV SUV, but we can’t possibly guess what it is. One thing is for sure. This assembly will surely make the Hummer EV even heavier. The vehicle already weighs between 9,046 and 9,440 pounds (4,103 and 4,282 kilograms).

That happens due to the proportions of the vehicle, but also to the powertrain setup. The vehicle features either a dual-motor setup for the EV2 or a tri-motor layout in the EV2X and EV3X. All of them sport all-wheel drive.

Only the battery weighs almost 3,000 pounds (1,400 kilograms), which is more than a mid-size SUV, for instance. A gross weight rating of 10,400 pounds (4,700 kilograms) sends it straight into the class 3 medium-duty truck category.

To pull all that weight, GMC put 830 horsepower in the EV3X, credited the EV2 and EV2X with 625 horsepower, and dropped a staggering 1,000 horsepower in the Edition 1, all handled by a single-speed auto box.

If the pop-up tent will be available for all the versions in the lineup, we will see later this year. The series production model will be ready in early 2024. No word on the pricing just yet. The Hummer EV SUV comes with a MRSP of $86,645. So far, the tent solution developed by GMC in partnership with Earth Cruiser is only reserved for the SUV.

The Hummer EV is assembled in Detroit, and the batteries are supplied by South-Korean-based LG Chem. The conversion of the SUV into a camper will be carried out by EarthCruiser. GMC points out that the warranty does not cover the upfit.
