The 2022 GMC Hummer EV is almost ready for production - expect to see it this autumn - so that means that it's time for the next chapter of the Hummer, the Hummer EV SUV.

The two models are expected to share powertrains, drivetrains, and much body structure. Think of it as the relationship between the Chevrolet Silverado and Suburban, or the Rivian R1T and R1S. Either way, it's a tried and true formula that works well given the vehicles' similar body sizes.

Because we're already seen the Hummer EV truck, we have an idea what can be expected from the Hummer EV SUV. The first Hummer EV, the Edition 1 model,. delivers 1,000 horsepower, has a 350-mile all-electric range, and goes for $112,959. In the ensuing years, GMC Is slated to deliver less powerful and far less expensive versions of the truck. This is a formula that likely plays out for the SUV as well.

Expect the dimensions and wheelbase for the SUV to be similar to the Hummer EV truck as well. Built on GM's new flexible architecture, the Hummer EV fits between the traditional and extended wheelbase sizes of the 2021 GMC Yukon and Cadillac Escalade. It's over a foot longer than the Hummer H2 and a few inches taller than the Ford F-150 Raptor.

What we don't know is if the truck's t-top-style Infinity Roof will be carried over into the SUV. It's likely that Crab Walk mode and Watts to Freedom launch mode will make the cut.

The 2022 GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 will have 350 miles of range coming from its GM Ultium battery pack. This is the same power supply the SUV will get.

GMC will unveil the Hummer EV SUV at 5 p.m. ET on April 3, 2021 and feature it during the NCAA Final Four. Reservations for the model will open immediately following the reveal on the same date.

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.

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.
