GMC's electric vehicle lineup is expanding. The 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV will join the GMC Hummer EV truck in the coming years. Today's unveiling is not an unexpected move. The automaker, a division of General Motors, has been teasing the two side-by-side for the last year.

"The GMC Hummer EVs were envisioned to be the most capable and compelling electric supertrucks ever," said Duncan Aldred, global vice president of Buick and GMC. "The new Hummer EV SUV is the next chapter, which will offer many options for customers to tailor the truck to their lifestyles, while continuing to encourage them to forge new paths with zero emissions."

GMC will sell the Hummer EV SUV in four trim levels: Hummer EV2 SUV, Hummer EV2X SUV, Hummer EV3X SUV, Hummer EV SUV Edition 1.

The SUV's 20-module battery will offer a range of 300 miles on the Edition 1 model while the base EV2 SUV has just 250 miles of range.

The SUV's all-electric drive system offers up to 830 horsepower and 11,500 pound-feet of torque in the Edition 1 model. Propulsion is quick via the three-motor system, delivering the SUV from zero to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds courtesy of Watts to Freedom (WTF) mode.

Hummer 2X and 3X models offer 625 and 800 horsepower, respectively. The 2X has 7,400 pound-feet for torque compared to the 3X's 11,500. The base model's figures are the same as the 2X's; both models have two motors compared to other trim levels' three.

The base model is only able to charge at up to 400 volts while the other models can charge at a rate of up to 800 volts/300 kilowatts.

GMC has kept much of the look of the Hummer EV truck with a rugged yet modern aesthetic that calls back to the Hummers of the past. There is a full-size spare tire mounted to the rear. It has a 126.7-inch wheelbase. GMC Is promising a 35.4-foot turning circle. Four-wheel steering is standard on Hummer 2X, 3X, and Edition 1 models.

The automaker is promising that the SUV won't just be a parking lot princess. It is set to be capable off-road with "impressive" brakeover and departure angles. The myGMC app will be redesigned an will offer Hummer EV SUV drivers new "tactical technology" including Energy Assist.

The targa-like Infinity Roof with removal Sky Panels, I-Bar, and rear drop glass is standard.

Edition 1 models come with 22-inch premium wheels, assist steps, and floor liners.

The available Extreme Off-Road package adds 18-inch wheels and 35-inch-OD MT tires, underbody armor and rock sliders, front eLocker and virtual rear lockers, heavy-duty ball-spline half shafts, UltraVision with underbody camera views, and more. Range on the Edition 1 model with this package is just 280 miles.

The five-passenger configuration of the Hummer EV truck carries over to the SUV. The SUV also gets Super Cruise, which GM is working to make more widely available in its products. Super Cruise is driver-assistance technology offering hands-free driving on more than 200,000 miles of enabled roads.

Buyers will be able to customize their Hummer EV SUV using My Mode, auxiliary buttons, and nearly 200 accessories that will be available at launch.

Production of the model is set to begin in early 2023. Edition 1 models and Edition 1 models with the Extreme Off-Road package will be the first out of the gate, coming to market around that time.

Pricing for the Edition 1 model starts at $105,595. Adding the Extreme Off-Road package pushes the MSRP to $110,595. In Spring 2023 Hummer EV2X and EV3X models will begin arriving at dealership priced at $89,995 and $99,995, respectively.

The 11th-generaiton Honda Civic Sedan has broken cover.

Marie was a little bit country and Donny was a little bit rock and roll. The design of the redesigned 2022 Honda Civic Sedan looks a little bit modern and a little bit vintage - and it's all a heck of a lot less polarizing than the previous generation.

Today Honda has offered the first official fully lighted glimpse of the 11th-generation Civic, which is set to officially debut April 28. The design of the model was previewed last year with the Civic Prototype.

Honda openly admits that the look of the new Civic was inspired by the last. Head into the trove of internet photos of the fourth- and fifth-generation Civic to see parallels in design. Honda said that designers upheld Honda's human-centric design philosophy in the new model while also increasing the safety.

The result is a car that looks very much like a sedan but still retains sporty attributes. It also looks more like the Accord in this generation than the last. In the photo provided by Honda, the new Civic is in Touring trim level form.

Honda said that the car's interior design, which they haven't shown photos of yet, is "uncluttered", has "simple ergonomics", and delivers "exceptional visibility".

The 2022 Civic will arrive on dealership lots this summer.

Also this summer, the Honda Civic Tour will return for its 20th season. There will be two stops on the virtual tour that will be livestreamed on the Honda Stage YouTube channel. The first event will start at 5:00 p.m. PT, on April 28. The virtual concert event on Twitch will also give Civic Tour fans a special first look at the all-new 2022 Honda Civic Sedan around 6:00 p.m. PT, leading into the performance.

As previously announced, the all-new Civic Hatchback will follow Civic Sedan production by several months. Details about Civic Hatchback, to be manufactured by Honda in the United States for the first time in its history, will follow later this year. The Civic Hatchback will be built at the company's Indiana auto plant.

David Beckham is turning his passion for supercars into a side gig. The former Manchester United midfielder has become the new face of Maserati.

Beckham has a long history as a car nut. He's owned Rolls-Royces, Bentleys, McLarens, Cadillacs, Audis, Aston Martins, Jaguars, BMWs, Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Hummers, and Jeeps, just to name a few. A year ago an Aston Martin Volante owned by Golden Balls went under the hammer and a little later in the year he was named one of the top five celebrities people would prefer to have deliver their new car to their home.

Maserati has a number of new projects up its sleeve besides partnering with Beckham. The company recently launched the new Ghibli Hybrid, a vehicle that the Modena-based manufacturer sees as a jumping off point for the new version of the brand - one where electrification and performance take center stage. Call it the Italian version of Akio Toyoda's famous "no boring cars" statement.

"The Brand is moving forward, inaugurated a new Era. Maserati is driven to challenge the status quo being innovative by nature, powered by passion, and unique by design. The partnership with David is the embodiment of all these values,: said Paolo Tubito, Maserati Chief Marketing Officer.

For 2021, Maserati also added a trio of Trofeos to its lineup. The The Maserati Levante Trofeo,. Ghibli Trofeo,and Quattroporte Trofeo are the most extreme versions of the vehicles available new from the manufacturer.

Beckham makes his debut in a new movie featuring the Levante Trofeo, performing the "audacious" act of driving a Maserati. The setting is Miami, the home city of Club Internacional de Fútbol Miami, an MLS soccer club that Becks co-owns with Marcelo Claure, Jorge Mas, Masayoshi Son, and José R. Mas.
