GMC HUMMER EV Pickup EarthCruiser upfit; Ford F-150 Lightning Platinum Black Edition

EarthCruiser unveiled the all-electric GMC HUMMER EV EarthCruiser—an overland upfit solution from EarthCruiser. The fully functional GMC HUMMER EV EarthCruiser upfit is making its public debut at Overland Expo Mountain West in Loveland, Colorado.


The GMC HUMMER EV EarthCruiser upfit by EarthCruiser features:

  • A carbon fiber EarthCruiser house fully integrated into the chassis of the GMC HUMMER EV Pickup.

  • Onboard solar power with 605W along with an innovative system of 6 kilowatt hours of 12V lithium battery to provide an estimated seven days of off-grid power, such as the ability to power appliances like a refrigerator/freezer for about a week.

  • The freedom to explore any season with EarthCruiser’s insulated tri-layered pop-up roof.

  • Amenities include a curated selection of appliances, indoor and outdoor shower, 120V and 12V outlets, purposeful storage and a flat-pack toilet.

  • An RV full-size bed to provide a comfortable night’s sleep on all terrains.

  • Intuitive, 7-inch-diagonal touchscreen system control panel designed for ease of use.

The GMC HUMMER EV EarthCruiser upfit is expected to be available to GMC HUMMER EV Pickup owners in 2024 through EarthCruiser. Additional product availability details will be released later this year. The EarthCruiser upfit is not covered by the GM New Vehicle Limited Warranty and GM is not responsible for independent-supplier alterations.

The 2024 GMC HUMMER EV Pickup—without upfit—starts at $98,845 (2X). The range-topping HUMMER EV Pickup Omega Edition starts at $149,995.
