Reporting by The Detroit News lays out the way that the 2022 GMC Hummer EV will debut. It will make its first public appearance during the first game of the Major League Baseball (MLB) World Series.

According to the report, General Motors has purchased commercial airtime they can use to show the truck as part of a larger virtual reveal strategy that will include content across multiple platforms. The World Series will be aired on Fox. The company will also show off the Hummer EV on NBC's "The Voice" and YouTube.

The first World Series game is set for October 20 and teams are currently playing for entry into the event. On the American League side, the Tampa Bay Rays are pitted against the New York Yankees while the Houston Astros facing competition from the Oakland Athletics (A's) for entry into the American League Championship Series (ALCS).

Over in the National League, the Los Angeles Dodgers are taking on the San Diego Padres for a spot in the National League Championship Series. Also vying for entry are the Miami Marlins who are going head-to-head with the Atlanta Braves.

The winner of the ALCS games will play the winner from the NLCS in the World Series.

As with the Ford Mustang Mach-E and Bronco, and Volkswagen ID.4, customers will be able to reserve a GMC Hummer EV online immediately following the reveal.

We already know a lot about what to expect from the Hummer EV. It will come in two flavors - truck and SUV. This is the same formula that Rivian is following with its R1T and R1S models. It is expected that the Hummer will go head-to-head with the Rivian models as well as the all-electric Ford F-150 and Tesla Cybertruck when it goes on sale in 2022.

GM will build the truck in Detroit on its new flexible platform and power the model with the company's own Ultium battery, which will give it 1,000 horsepower and 11,500 pound-feet of torque. The models are said to get from zero to 60 mph in three seconds.

Ford offering limited edition colors for 2022 Ranger Splash

The Ranger Splash will be offered in three limited-run colors.

Ford

During its time off the market in the United States, the Ford Ranger remained a popular utility vehicle in global markets. In other markets, the truck is offered in unique special editions, such as the Ranger Raptor and Ranger Storm, but the options in the U.S. are limited. Last year, Ford announced the return of the Ranger Splash, a funky version of the truck that roamed the streets in the 1990s. Today, the automaker outlined another Splash edition, this time to be produced in limited quantities with special color options.

Ford will offer three colors for the new Ranger Splash Limited Edition: Snow Edition, Forest Edition, and Sand Edition. The colors will roll out one at a time "every few months," according to Ford, and the package will add $1,495 to the Ranger's price tag.

The Lariat Ranger Splash Snow Edition features a gray paint color with black exterior trim and a unique grille design. Inside, the truck carries ebony leather upholstery with ash gray accent stitching and carbon touches. Ford says it will produces just 750 Splash Snow Edition trucks, with availability starting in spring.

The XLT Ranger Splash Forest Edition (pictured above) comes with Forged Green exterior paint and red grille accents. The interior offers black cloth upholstery with ash gray accent stitching and carbon accents. Just 500 Forest Edition vehicles will be produced, with availability starting in summer.

It also gets black cloth upholstery with ash gray stitching and carbon accents. The Sand Edition will debut in fall with a run of only 500 trucks.

Chevy recently dropped a load of specs and opened orders for the new Silverado EV.

Chevrolet

After months of teases and speculation, Chevrolet took the wraps off its 2024 Silverado EV pickup truck. The long-awaited electric truck lands with impressive range of up to 400 miles, plenty of power, and neat features that improve its ability to do "truck stuff." The $105,000 RST First Edition model sold out in 12 minutes, so we're here to ask the question: Would you line up to buy one?

2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV It's all about the screens in the RST First Edition model. Chevrolet

Chevrolet will offer the truck in two trims at launch: A fleet-oriented WT (work truck) model and a consumer-friendly RST First Edition model. Chevy says it will eventually offer a fleet model with 20,000 pounds of max towing capacity. The WT model will launch first with 510 horsepower and 615 pound-feet of torque, which adds up to a towing capacity of 8,000 pounds and 1,200 pounds of payload. The RST trim offers a Wide Open Watts (WOW) Mode that bumps power to 664 ponies and 780 pound-feet of torque, which is good for a 0-60 mph time of just 4.5 seconds.

The RST model offers advanced features to make daily driving easier for the everyday buyer, including four-wheel steering, automatic adaptive air suspension, a 17-inch touchscreen and 11-inch gauge cluster, a 14-inch head-up display, and Super Cruise with trailering capability. An available onboard generator system can produce up to 10.2kW of power for equipment such as worksite power tools or campsite gear.

Both trucks come exclusively in crew cab format, and will offer an "eTrunk" where the engine bay would be in a traditional truck. The lockable, weatherproof compartment can carry a large suitcase, and adds to the Silverado EV's already impressive interior storage. The RST's center console can swallow more than seven gallons of gear, which is large enough to hold a small lunch cooler, according to Chevy. RST models are also available with GM's excellent Multi-Flex tailgate, but there's a new feature for the electric truck that its gas-powered counterparts don't get: A Multi-Flex Midgate that opens the space between the cab and bed for carrying longer cargo. Using the function won't interfere with use of the back seat, either, so the truck will still carry at least four people.
