Detroit — GMC has begun building an SUV version of the Hummer EV and a third-generation Canyon midsize pickup.
Production of the 2024 Hummer EV SUV began Monday at General Motors’ Factory Zero plant in Detroit, officials said. The 2023 Canyon went into production last week at Wentzville Assembly in Missouri. Deliveries of both vehicles will begin within the next two months.
Three of the four Canyon trims are in production — Denali, AT4 and Elevation — followed by AT4X, Global Buick and GMC vice president Duncan Aldred told reporters Monday. The redesigned pickups are taller and wider at all trim levels.
Aldred said GMC has received 90,000 bookings for Hummer SUVs and pickups combined, and is temporarily suspending additional bookings to meet existing demand through 2023-2024. That’s it.
Sales of the Edition 1 Hummer Pickup, priced over $110,000, began in December 2021. Originally, the cheaper trim was expected to be available last fall, but a GMC spokesperson said it would start rolling out later this year. GM says he will have sold 855 Hummer pickups by the end of 2022.
“Last year’s production was always meant to be very low,” Aldred said of Hummer’s pickup trucks, adding that production would increase in the second half of the year.
