Is the Hummer EV good enough to win this award?
2022 GMC Hummer EV Pickup
Few production vehicles have ever had this much presence, this much drama. It's difficult to walk away from a drive in the 2022 GMC Hummer EV pickup without smiling and shaking your head wistfully—or maybe it's your whole body shaking after a rollercoaster ride to 60 mph or beyond in Watts to Freedom (WTF) mode. The luster wears off a bit as the first impressions dull in your mind, but from beginning to end the new GMC Hummer is unforgettable.

The whimsy starts with the lunar rover theme, which is both metacommentary (GMC's accelerated development of this monstrous EV is quite fairly a moonshot) and a source of design inspiration. The new Hummer lays it on thick, with clear roof panels and a central bar that are removable for an open-air view skyward, while clearance lights give the mil-spec hood a cool and eerie glow at night. Then there is the amazingly entertaining CrabWalk mode and the latest version of the spooky-good Super Cruise driver assistance system. It is sometimes hard to believe this is a production truck rather than a mad science experiment some rogue engineers cooked up in their spare time.
