Hate to be the bearer of bad news, ladies and gents, but figured the forum would want to know.

According to Muscle Cars and Trucks, the Hummer live reveal on May 20th has been cancelled, due to coronavirus-related issues. I think we all kind of knew this was coming, even if we were in denial. According to the report, the in-person reveal, which was going to take place at the newly-renovated Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant, was scrapped in the last few days. Really bummed.

The report also says that GM apparently hasn't decided on whether to reveal it via livestream, or to postpone the in-person reveal until a later date. However, the website makes some pretty strong arguments on why it'll likely be pushed back for a live, in-person reveal around mid to late summer, or even fall. I hate to say it, but they make a great point, and unfortunately...they're probably right.

Here's the link so you can check out the full details:

The fact that 2,000 people have lost their lives due to the novel virus in Michigan definitely isn't helping the in-person idea. Online then?

That's exactly what I'm hoping, but I don't know. Some are arguing that they won't get as much publicity, or that it'll be bad publicity revealing a car during this mess, etc. To the first point, Tesla does this all the time with no issues, so why should GM? Plus, with a lot of people home anyways, they'll want to tune in, as long as GM advertises it on the popular platforms like youtube or Facebook/Twitter. To the second, companies have been launching brand-new cars online now for the last 2 months, with no blowback. Why would it be any different for GM?

Honestly, I'll be extremely let down if they push it back...which I'm sure they will. It is a massive reveal for them, so I'm sure they'd rather wait until it can be the big block party they for sure had planned. But because no one knows when this'll let up, I say do it over livestream on youtube, Facebook, whatever. Just reveal it!!
