Nice to see it in another color besides green. I actually like the green it’s just nice to see it in white. Looking forward to seeing some SUT’s in something other than white since that is all we have seen since the beginning.
With the white on the roof I am not sure what I think of the rear 3/4 proportions, with a production black roof it might look better?

Wonder if this is just a temp preproduction piece kinda like the black pieces that were on the front corners of the bumper on the late truck sightings. I believe the roof on the Ed1 SUV is all black, correct?

I would go SUV if it had 3 row seating. I think GM hurt themselves there if they are trying to convert ICE buyers to EV buyers. Almost all SUVs of this size (Tahoe, Expedition, Escalade, Wagoneer, etc) allow seating for 6+. Maybe they did it on purpose as they plan to roll out an electric Escalade, but it still just doesnt make sense to me.

3 Row isn't everything. Not everyone needs or wants to haul that many people. I know my dad turned away many 3 row trucks for a 2 row.

The Hummer is built to haul you a few friends and so much gear that it wouldn't fit with a 3rd row for an out door excursion.

Besides with where the rear motors are I don't think you'd get a flat load floor if you wanted to fold the seats down. You'd have to physically remove the seats to get more cargo room.

More than half of my clients looking at Yukons and Escalades fold the 3rd row down anyways. They want to have the storage capabilities. So essentially you have 4 seater full size SUVs rolling around with multiple types of gear in the back. The Hummer having storage in the front and back I don't see any real need for it to be a 3rd row vehicle. It's going to get used the same as families use their large SUVs now anyways.

3 row seating is like AWD, people do not "need" it, but they like to have it there once or twice a year when its handy.

I had a 3 row SUV before, and yes, rarely used the 3rd row, but that 1 or 2 times you need it, it sure is nice to have. Now that we have 2 row crossovers we miss the 3 row capability.

I can certainly understand that. I hear the back and forth drawbacks almost everyday. Not to stray but the best part is listening to them say they want the seats for those few times, but want the space but don't want to drive the bus of a Yukon XL which has both.

I think the SUV will hit a certain market just like the truck does and we won't see typical buying trends or cross shopping. It's too limited and too unique to really fit a standard critique or comparison to other vehicles, much like the Hummer truck was not mentioned in the Rivian Edmunds drive video we saw yesterday.
