Hey guys,

It's been a while since we last had a poll, so I figured it was time for a new one.

This time around, your question is this: what are the 3 most important things you want to see from the new Hummer twins?

Now THIS is really interesting, Luke. I hadn't heard of this until now.

Here's a comment from the GMA story:

"I think I know exactly what these are for.

This isn’t going into the Lyriq. Anything less than real leather would be laughable in a Cadillac, especially in light of competition. EV’s used to be solely for environmentally-minded people. Not anymore.

These are both for the Hummer EV twins.

If you remember, GM said (and this was barely covered) that the Hummer’s interior would be made only of 100% recyclable materials. But no one is going to pay $70k for a vehicle with cloth seats. These materials are going to be some kind of synthetic leather. It especially makes sense when you remember that the Hummer’s interior is going to have a “lunar” theme, with topographical maps of the Sea of Tranquility in the speaker covers and floor mats. Hence, “Interluxe” leather…and “Earthluxe” is likely a play on lesser trims, designed for the best off-road durability."

I'd add that the newly unveiled (as of this morning) Jeep Grand Wagoneer has fully-recyclable synthetic leather, and it looks beautiful and luxurious. I think this is EXACTLY what Hummer needs.

I must have missed the "topographical maps of the Sea of Tranquility" info when it originally came out - very interesting. Looks like Jeep did something similar with a map of detroit on the wagoneer's glass roof.

Yeah, the polyurethane seats in the wagoneer looks pretty good for what they are (picture below)

Also, it pretty much looks like a large rivian

Thanks for those pictures, Luke. That's exactly what I was talking about. I would love those in the Hummers.

Also, it's hard to see from that picture on the bottom, but doesn't the Wagoneer look like a cross between the profile of the Rivian R1S and the front of the Hummer EV?

Pretty much exactly what I was thinking...except it's a PHEV! Definitely glad we'll be getting more than the 30 miles of "EV only" range

Leather is 100% recyclable and is organic. Plastic isn't.
My wants aren't on the list:
Color choices that aren't lame
"Spirit airlines" bare-bones model that can be upgraded in the future
First off, welcome to the forums, @ThurstonHowellV! Glad to have you aboard.

Two things: first, treated leather used in vehicle upholstery isn't recyclable beyond repurposing, but no one does that so it really doesn't count. Plastic can be, hence recyclable. I don't place much emphasis on this personally, but apparently its important to GM with the Hummers. I say just toss some good old leather in there, as long as it's durable.

Second, I should have added color choices, my bad. As far as a "Spirit Airlines" model (great name, btw lol), the best you'll get there is the base model, likely starting around $50k. It can't be much cheaper because of the cost of developing this kind of a truck. BUT, the interiors have been described as "utilitarian," so you may have something to cheer for there.
