That’s a good summary of what is publicly available right now. I just hope we find out a little more pretty soon what is planned at launch and possibly what will be available soon afterwards. They have been pretty quiet for example about the “towing assist” software - the predictive range stuff in the Ford Lightning looks pretty useful for example. I know GM has some good patents on this type of stuff so hopefully they will be able to introduce it here. Also, I am still curious what the “Big Foot button” on the screen does! I am hoping it’s something similar to Tesla’s sentry mode which utilizes the cameras to automatically take videos when needed. Would be good to take pictures/videos of bears or cryptids walking by! 😊

Big foot button on the infotainment is for the light bar, to light up the stuck Bronco (Sasquatch) in front of you. Haha! Actually I have no idea...

Yes, GM keeps telling us investors the Hummer is the first vehicle they plan to build a relationship with the customer after the sale, and continue to generate revenue with products and services after the sale. I am not exactly sure what that means yet, but its good... As a Tesla owner, I can tell you the over the air software is cool... When you wake up and there has been a software update, you never know, if you got a new useful feature, better range, more power, or better Autopilot until you jump in an read the details and take it for a spin. Want half a second better acceleration to 60, pay $$ and its download it to your car. Full Self Driving (a scam) again just pay and download it. Tesla definitely changed what is expected in car ownership.

Thanks for sharing the video. The software upgrades are cool. I am more interested to see if GM (or another company) will offer upgraded batteries as technology improves. I know they are modular and accessible.

Same, GM has told investors that the next Gen Battery tech will be bolt in compatible , and even went so far as to say if you have a module go bad in the future, you can install a newer module with upgraded tech and the battery management can cope with that.

Now, they did not say the next gen battery tech will be cheap, and I would guess just the opposite, the Hummer EV battery is likely $30K or so, to replace if GM hits their pricing targets for Ultium.

That price point doesn’t surprise me. As a percentage of total vehicle cost, it is better than what an entire drive train upgrade would be on an ICE configuration. For example, companies ask 25-30K to put a Hemi in a Jeep.
