The HUMMER already carries segment-exclusive features such as 4-Wheel-Steer and CrabWalk that have been proven off-road from the desert of Arizona to the rocks of Moab, Utah.

PMG PHTO: JEFF ZUERSCHMEIDE - The GMC HUMMER EV Edition 1 Pickup will be the most off-rioad capable EV ever.The GMC HUMMER EV Edition 1 Pickup is set to become even more capable on off-road trails with the addition of Extract Mode. When obstacles are too large for normal ride height, Extract Mode will allow the driver to engage the Adaptive Air Suspension to raise the HUMMER nearly 6 inches higher than Normal, achieving a class-leading 15.9 inches of ground clearance.

"Our goal was to push the boundaries of what an electric vehicle is capable of and to develop real, usable features that will allow customers to take off-roading to the next-level," said Aaron Pfau, GMC HUMMER EV lead development engineer. "The GMC HUMMER EV was a blank slate that was filled out by dedicated team of engineers who are hardcore off-road enthusiasts. Adding an innovative feature like Extract Mode results in an off-road vehicle that has incredible ground-clearance and capability that will take you to new places."

The HUMMER carries segment-exclusive features such as 4-Wheel-Steer and CrabWalk that have been proven off-road from the desert of Arizona to the rocks of Moab, Utah. Extract Mode takes the HUMMER EV's maneuverability even further by increasing water fording depth to 32 inches, as well as increasing the vehicle approach angle by 8.2 degrees, departure angle by 6.8 degrees and breakover angle by 9.9 degrees from the Normal settings for additional clearance while navigating off-road.

This enhanced performance will be unlocked via a no-charge software update in the next few weeks, and is available to all existing customers who have taken delivery of their Edition 1 Pickup. It will be included on future HUMMER EV deliveries.
