He Ain't Heavy, He's My Hummer
Get ready for the 2022 GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 Pickup, but please don't call it a welterweight.

According to news reported today by GM Authority, the all-electric Hummer is going to top the scales.

So how heavy will the humongous Hummer be?

The answer is a staggering 9,000 lbs or roughly the weight of two full-grown adult African elephants.

"For all intents and purposes, that’s kinda nuts – by comparison, a GMC Sierra 3500HD 4WD Long Bed Crew Cab with dual rear wheels and 6.6L V8 L5P turbodiesel Duramax powerplant under the hood has a curb weight of 8,355 pounds, making it 691 pounds lighter than the new Hummer EV Edition 1 Pickup," GMAuthority says.

But, do you really care about weight? How about horsepower? The new Hummer promises 1,000-horsepower from an all-electric 3-motor drive system and a 0-60 mph time of 3.5 seconds.

You heard that right. This 9,000-lb brute can tackle 0-60 mph quicker than nearly every muscle car ever produced. Now we're talking!
