GMC Introduces Crab Mode for Hummer, We Snicker

“Crab Mode” isn’t just what you’re in when you journey to Red Lobster, McCormick & Schmick’s, or Baltimore. It’s a feature of the new electric Hummer that GMC has teased. Complete with a silly logo.

Crab Mode? In a Hummer? Please excuse any typos, I am giggling too hard at all the jokes that are coming to mind. Yes, I am 13 years old inside, apparently.

Ahem.

This Crab Mode is accompanied by a logo that looks like a rejected design from the Transformers cartoons.

Here’s what Crab Mode is/what it does. Or rather, what it might be or what it might do, as GM/GMC is still being quite circumspect.

Crab Mode is, probably, as Motor1 speculates, a reference to the top-trim Hummer having three electric motors and some kind of unique motion that the electric SUV will be able to do. The author over there thinks it could be like the tech that Rivian uses to allow its truck to make a zero-radius turn. Our guess is that maybe it can “crab walk” sideways if you’re trying to maneuver your Hummer into a tight parking space or for some sort of work usage.

This is all accompanied by a logo that looks like a rejected design from the Transformers cartoons.

GMC’s tweet doesn’t shed any real light on the situation. “Real revolutionaries forge their own direction.” OK, so maybe that does mean the Hummer will move in mysterious ways?

We shall see when the Hummer is revealed this fall.Until then, I will be thinking of this and cackling, at least until my neighbors take notice and send me off with the nice people in white coats.
