The key people behind the Hummer EV all have plenty of off-road experience. It was brought up in this AN interview:

"GM handpicked a roster of off-road enthusiasts to develop the Hummer, slated to compete with gasoline-powered off-road offerings from Ford, Jeep and Land Rover.

Todd Hubbard, vehicle performance engineer, also is an experienced off-roader, and Mike Colville, senior manager of electric vehicle feature integration, has competed in King of the Hammers, an off-road race that combines desert racing and rock crawling."

This is good news. I remember somewhere during the reveal event that some GM engineer said that the Hummer EV would be the best off road vehicle GM has ever built. Now I see why...the team is chock full of offroading enthusiasts.

GM has made some world-class offroaders in it's time, including the Hummer H3 Alpha and Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison. In fact, the Bison is considered one of the best offroaders you can get in any segment today. If their claim is true...the Hummer EV is on point to be mind-blowing off the beaten path.

Very true. I was shocked when the Colorado ZR2 came to market especially after Toyota had the lead in that segment and ready capital to do something as extreme, but didn't. TRD versions are nice but they've sort of worn off over the years.
