GMC HUMMER EV SUPERSTRUCK OFF-ROAD CAPABILITY
GMC’s team of engineers recently took the all-new GMC HUMMER EV Supertruck to the desert proving ground of Yuma, AZ, and the extreme landscape of Moab, UT, pushing all-electric capability to the max. GMC was testing and calibrating many features on the Hummer EV, including: CrabWalk, rear steering, stability control, eLockers, e4WD and torque distribution, One-Pedal Driving control, Terrain Mode, Extract Mode, Adaptive Air Suspension hardware, and more.
Watch as the GMC HUMMER EV pickup goes through its rigorous off-road testing in the lead-up to its production debut this fall.
Features like Extract Mode, Terrain Mode, and One-Pedal Driving, Terrain Mode help transform the GMC HUMMER EV Supertruck into an absolute off-road beast that will take you to new places.
When the road gets tough, the upcoming available Extract Mode feature enables the Adaptive Air Suspension height to be raised approximately 6 inches in order to help the GMC HUMMER EV negotiate extreme off-road situations, such as clearing large boulders and fording deeper water.
Available Terrain Mode, part of the GMC HUMMER EV’s Drive Mode Control, will offer two braking calibrations, with a mild braking option for two-foot driving and a purpose-designed One-Pedal Driving control in low-speed off-road driving.
As pioneered by General Motors for other electric vehicles, One-Pedal Driving enables the driver to accelerate and decelerate using only the accelerator pedal. With Terrain Mode, that same One-Pedal Driving control is adapted with unique calibrations for speed-limited off-road driving, helping the driver to negotiate steep grades, rock crawling and other challenging terrain without having to toggle between the accelerator and brake pedal.
“One-Pedal Driving offers a great feeling of control by optimizing the regenerative braking, friction braking and drive motor torque all through the accelerator pedal,” said Aaron Pfau, GMC HUMMER EV lead development engineer. “Drivers will quickly realize the benefits once they try it off-road.
