Hi Everyone...I'm a former Hummer H1, H2, and H3 owner and have been a part of the Hummer family since 1997. I have also dipped my toes in the electric field as a past Tesla Model S and Fisker Karma owner as well. I was lucky enough to get a reservation for the Edition 1. To offer all of what Hummer can do with the convenience and enjoyment that electric brings, this seems like the perfect vehicle for me. I haven't been this excited for a new vehicle in quite some time, and can't wait to get to know everyone!

Welcome @RealHummerEV! Congrats on securing an Edition 1.
Glad to have someone here with that much experience with Hummers and electric vehicles. Given your background, is there anything you would like GMC to change or add to the new Hummer?

Welcome, @RealHummerEV! Wow, awesome to have someone here that's had experience with ALL THREE original Hummers! That's extremely impressive. I've said it before, the Hummer EV MUST win over old Hummer buyers if it wants to succeed. So the fact that you, as a "hat trick" Hummer owner, are on board is terrific!

I'm also curious on your thoughts to AllTerrain's question.

Thanks for the welcome! Besides lowering the price, I can't really think of anything that they are missing on the truck. If I was really picky then I'd say CTIS would have been a nice touch. I am still blown away at the specs and features. I have been a long time Gm fan and was worried that the Hummer EV was going to be a letdown. I'm happy to say they have knocked it out of the park and all others are going to be playing catch up!

Welcome to the club @RealHummerEV! Congrats on getting an Edition One reservation. Did you do a lot of off-roading with your previous Hummers and if so are you planning on doing the same with the Edition One?

That emphasized portion of your comment is EXACTLY how I felt coming into this haha. I have been a GM guy since I was young, I know the company has had plenty of letdowns and I was just praying that this wouldn't be one. But they absolutely nailed this truck. The most capable off-roader GM has ever built, according to the engineers! After the C8 Corvette, the Tahoe/Yukon/Escalade triplets, the Cadillac Lyriq and now this, GM is on arguably their best winning streak of the last 20 years!

I gave pricing some serious thought and came to the realization that its quite reasonable.
Its within the ballpark of most full-size premium vehicles.

GMC can make up for it by continuing to improve and add value to the HEV. I'm sure that communities like this will be essential to them understanding what customers actually want.

We should put together a wishlist eventually!

Not a ton of off-roading in the past, but I was lucky enough to go out on several of the trails and the test track and the old AM General facility in IN. I got to take the H1 out a few times there and the H2 only once. Both more than capable at going through stuff that looked impossible at first.
This one will probably get some light off road fun, but ultimately stay on the pavement most of the time.

Agreed, GM has been on a heater lately. Next up we'll see how they do on the CT5 V Blackwing. Give me that car as a wagon, 6-speed manual and pushing 700hp and I'll have my deposit down today!

I agree with you. While I was hoping that a loaded HEV would have came in around the $80k-$90k mark, obviously they know what they are doing having the first model year sold out so quickly and all of the hype they have already received.

I'm pretty much the same way. The worst I've ever driven my H3 depends on how much snow is on the ground haha.
