QOTD: What’s Your Take on the Hummer?
It’s been Hummer week around these parts, as the GMC Hummer EV finally made its debut on Tuesday night. We’ve had a whole slew of stories up — but I wanted to get a sense of what you, the B and B, think of it.
Yes, many of you chimed in on the main news post — now you can do so again, or chirp up if you didn’t before. Yes, Jalop also asked their readers this, but I want to hear from you. Nothing against the competition, but some of our readers don’t comment over there. I want to hear from our B and B.
As for me, I’m indifferent towards the truck. Not in the pejorative “meh” way in which “meh” has a negative connotation. It’s just that I don’t really love/like it or hate it.
I like some things about it. It looks cool, the specs are impressive (assuming GM comes close to the estimates), the CrabWalk feature seems useful for off-roading, it brought back T-tops (big hell yeah from me), and the EV tech looks impressive on paper and could trickle down to other GM products. If lessons learned on Hummer allow GM to better mass-market cheaper EVs that are meant for commuters, that’s a good thing.
All that said, I am not daydreaming of one, nor would I put a poster of one on my wall if I had a room dedicated to car stuff (living in a small condo, I do not have such a room). It’s cool, I guess, but perhaps not my cup of tea.
I’ll review it fairly whenever I get to drive it, but till then, I want to know: What do you think?
