After a year when almost every automotive event was canceled, it’s nice to see a few major events happening in 2021. The Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show is an opportunity for OEMs and the automotive aftermarket to show off wild custom products and vehicle builds. GMC’s bringing the heat for this year’s show, and will be toting out three GMC Hummer EV models, including a pre-production SUV and two pickups. The automaker notes that its total portfolio at the show will include almost 200 products.
One of the trucks has been customized with dozens of accessories and upgrades, and GMC says it will bring several others for display in the show’s New Products Showcase. Beyond the three Hummers, GM is hauling out several accessories for the EVs:
- Power-retractable hard Tonneau cover
- Off-road recovery kit
- 50-inch roof-mounted light bar
- Front auxiliary lights
- Rocker guards with integrated steps
- Bed-mounted vertical spare tire carrier
- Cargo and storage management upgrades
GM says that many of the Hummer EV accessories were developed alongside the vehicles themselves to ensure perfect fitment and operation. The process allows accessories to fit and integrate with the Hummer as if they were factory options.
Pre-production of the the first GMC Hummer EV Pickups has begun at GM’s Factory Zero, and the first full-production trucks are due by the end of 2021. The Hummer SUV is expected in 2023.
