This Year’s Official ‘Ultimate Overland Vehicle’ Has a Kitchen, Fridge and Outdoor Shower

This Year’s Official ‘Ultimate Overland Vehicle’ Has a Kitchen, Fridge and Outdoor Shower

The group behind the Overland Expo is concerned with more than just hosting events.

For the second year running, organizers of the multi-event tradeshow have built what they’re calling the “Ultimate Overland Vehicle.” And in 2022, the ultra-versatile bruiser is built on the bones of the new 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 ATX pickup truck.
Although it been equipped with a number of after-market add-ons, Overland Expo’s Sierra looks just like any other dual-cab version of GMC’s truck, except for one big difference: the cargo bed. The designers of the trade show’s build have gotten rid of the standard bed and replaced it with a 6.4-foot-long MITS tray topped by a three-foot-long canopy that’s affixed with a solar panel, according to a press release. The new tray is filled with eight-gallon water tank, side-mounted storage bins and a full-length drawer. The canopy, meanwhile, is home to a camp kitchen from Green Goat Outdoors, Geyser System outdoor shower and a DOMETIC CRX 110 fridge powered by a pair of lithium ion batteries. Located behind the canopy is one of 23 ZERO’s two-person Outbreak 1550 Swag ground tents.

On top of the truck, you’ll find a bank of Rigid Adapt XP lights and well as an extendable awning in case you ever need the shade while stopped. The roof, which is equipped with its own rack, it also home to much of the vehicle’s communication hardware, including a GMRS radio, Zoleo satellite receiver and cell signal booster. It also carries some recovery gear and tools in case you ever get stuck.
Despite all the modifications to the four-wheel-drive Sierra, Overland Expo has mainly left its 420 hp, 6.2-liter V-8 powertrain alone, with the exception of adding a MagnaFlow exhaust. The truck has also been equipped with some off-road friendly upgrades like Firestone Ride-Rite air springs and 17-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 33-inch Firestone Destination M/T2 tires. Those last two modifications will help the four-wheeler travel over any kind of terrain in relative comfort.

You’ll be able to check out Overland Expo’s 2022 “Ultimate Overland Vehicle” at any of the trade show’s four events—which will be held in Arizona, Oregon, Colorado and Virginia—this year. After that, you can make the modified Sierra 1500 ATX pickup your own. It’ll eventually go up for bid on Bring a Trailer, with 100 percent of the sale proceeds going Overland Expo Foundation charity.

An All-Electric Corvette C8 Is Coming, Chevy Says

An All-Electric Corvette C8 Is Coming, Chevy Says

The Chevrolet C8 Corvette is going electric.

General Motors President Mark Reuss announced that a battery-powered ‘Vette is in the works during an appearance on CNBC’s Squawk Box on Monday morning. While he wasn’t ready to say when the EV will arrive just yet, he did reveal that a hybrid version of the sports car will hit roads next year.
Following his appearance on the show, Reuss took to LinkedIn to confirm the news about the electrified sports car, which many believe will be called the E-Ray. “Yes, in addition to the amazing new Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and other gas-powered variants coming, we will offer an electrified and a fully electric, Ultium-based Corvette in the future,” the executive wrote. “In fact, we will offer an electrified [hybrid] Corvette as early as next year. Details and names to come at a later date.”

Although we’ll have to wait for those details, anticipation for any electrified Corvette is certain to be intense, and the notion has already set off plenty of speculation. Last summer, an unconfirmed report suggested that a hybrid Corvette could pair the Stingray’s 6.2-liter LT2 V-8 with an “e-booster” electric motor that would increase the horsepower from an already impressive 490 hp to around 650 hp. That article was dropped before the debut of the Z06 and its 670 hp flat-plane crank LT6 V-8, though, so it’s possible a hybrid variant could be even more powerful. A video shown during Reuss’s announcement, which depicts the hybrid undergoing cold weather testing, all but confirms that the electrified ‘Vettes will have all-wheel-drive, which would be a first for the vehicle.
We’re sure there are some purists who will be concerned about what Monday’s announcement means for the Corvette’s beloved V-8. For the time being, at least, gas-powered ‘Vettes—like the Z06, which has yet to go into production—aren’t going anywhere. Reuss made clear that GM intends to keep producing Corvettes with internal combustions alongside those with electrified and fully electric powertrains. The end of the line is nearing for the gas-powered mill, though. Last year, GM announced it would phase out all gas- and diesel-powered vehicles by 2035.
For the near future, however, Corvette enthusiasts will three different kinds of engine setups to choose from.

First Drive: The New Hummer EV Is Certainly One Giant Leap for GM

First Drive: The New Hummer EV Is Certainly One Giant Leap for GM

Just north of Scottsdale, Ariz., the woman in the Mercedes G-Wagen honks and waves her arms. She lowers her tinted window and shouts, “Is that the new Hummer?” Yes, it is. After being absent for more than a decade, the Hummer has been resurrected as a future-forward, all-electric behemoth forthcoming in both pickup truck and SUV forms.

The tough-guy vehicle of the 1990s and early 2000s, the old Hummer was the ultimate symbol of gas-guzzling, conspicuous consumption. In 2009, General Motors pulled the plug on the Hummer brand as aftermath of the prior year’s economic downturn. Now, filed under the GMC nameplate, the new Hummer is poised to make a spectacular comeback thanks to its soul-stirring design, more environmentally friendly power train and legit off-road capability.

“We want to get people excited about what an EV could be,” says a GMC spokesperson during our test drive in Arizona. The Hummer EV is the first vehicle to be built on General Motors’ Ultium platform, powered by a giant, 24-module battery pack that offers 329 miles of range. In the platform’s most powerful configuration, one front and two rear motors make a combined 1,000 hp. In launch-control mode, which GMC calls “Watts to Freedom” (WTF), the Hummer EV can dash from zero to 60 mph in about 3 seconds.
Designers and engineers only had approximately 18 months to come up with a prototype after General Motors president Mark Reuss directed his team to build a rugged utility vehicle that would propel the company into the future with its all-new electric power train. A passionate group was assembled to create the model, including hardcore off-roading and overlanding enthusiasts as well as members of GM’s performance team. The result is nothing short of impressive.

Up to five occupants can be part of any Hummer EV expedition.

Although it weighs more than 9,000 pounds (nearly 3,000 pounds of which is from the battery pack), the Hummer EV is anything but sluggish. Thanks to the instant torque from the electric motors, the vehicle is quick off the line. Adaptive ride control uses myriad sensors to read the road every 2 milliseconds, and adjusts the suspension accordingly for the smoothest ride. And with the optional four-wheel steering, the turning circle is reduced from 44.3 feet to only 37.1 feet, making the Hummer surprisingly nimble while navigating narrow outback terrain or supermarket parking lots.

In Terrain mode, the vehicle has a 12-inch ground clearance for climbing rocks and crossing through water as much as two feet deep.

On the way to an off-roading location north of Scottsdale, we switch on GM’s latest version of Super Cruise, a driving-assist system that is one of the best in the industry. It combines adaptive cruise control, steering assist and lane-centering functionality to give a nearly autonomous driving experience, as long as the driver’s eyes stay on the road. If you’re traveling any stretch of the 200,000 miles of enabled roads, a new lane-change feature will detect if a car in front is going slower and check the left side for traffic. If all is clear, Super Cruise will make the lane change, pass the slower car, and get back over automatically. And the lady in the G-Wagen is far from the only fan. From the freeway to suburban stoplights, drivers of nearly every giant pickup truck give us a big thumbs-up — or cut us off aggressively in an obvious show of insecurity.

As with the G-Wagens, Range Rovers, and other rugged vehicles-turned-fashion-statements, most of these Hummer EVs will never taste backcountry dirt. But the model is one of the most capable and versatile for the outdoors—as long as you have enough charge. Two main modes handle more adventurous driving: Off-Road mode is for relatively faster speeds, over dirt and gravel, while Terrain mode is for slower, more technical routes, with the electric power train’s one-pedal drive serving as a hill-descent control of sorts. In this mode, the Hummer offers nearly 12 inches of ground clearance for climbing rocks and fording streams. And in case the driver gets into trouble, the optional “Extract” mode will raise the vehicle to a maximum of 15.9 inches.

A total of 18 individual camera views, including under the truck, can be displayed.

Skid plates, rock sliders and side running boards fully protect the battery pack and bottom of the car. And if you get stuck in tight conditions, the “Crab Walk” feature turns the rear wheels up to 10 degrees at the same angle as the front wheels, allowing you to diagonally creep out of a sticky situation. Multiple camera angles and a 360-degree overhead view make sure you can see exactly where you’re going and where to put tires on the trail.

With the Hummer’s unique four-wheel-drive system, it can climb 60-percent grades—both forward and in reverse—scale 18-inch verticals and traverse water that’s two-feet deep. And although we didn’t need it on our test drive, a virtual locking rear differential varies the amount of torque sent to each wheel to optimize traction and improve on-road driving manners.

When it came time to design the new Hummer, the United States was celebrating the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11, the rocket that sent the first man to the moon. That milestone inspired designers to employ many space-related themes in the first version, dubbed Edition 1. These range from the Interstellar White exterior paint to tiny moon-boot prints hidden around the cabin. The 13.4-inch center touchscreen is easy to read and intuitive. Graphics are powered by Epic Games’ Unreal Engine (a 3-D-creation tool originally developed for video games). The instrument cluster in front of the driver offers five layouts to choose from: Lunar, Sport, Clean, Off Road and Digital, with different colors and topography for each. A combination of textured analog buttons and digital controls keep the Hummer looking modern while remaining practical, especially when bounding around over rocks and ruts.

Reservations are full for the Hummer EV Edition 1, which starts at $110,295 and is outfitted with the most capable off-roading features, a removable transparent roof and a towing capacity of up to 7,500 pounds. However, reservations are now open for the 830 hp Hummer EV 3X, estimated to be available this fall. Two less powerful, dual-motor variants are expected in the spring of 2023 and 2024, respectively. And if you do decide to join the crush of anxious, soon-to-be Hummer owners, get ready for a truckload of attention.

Chevrolet Is Already Cracking Down on Price Gouging for the New Corvette Z06

Chevrolet Is Already Cracking Down on Price Gouging for the New Corvette Z06

Chevrolet wants to end Corvette Z06 price gouging before it begins.

The automaker’s parent company, General Motors, recently sent a memo to dealerships explicitly warning them not to charge outrageous markups for the in-demand C8, according to the Corvette Action Center. The Detroit giant also said there would be consequences for dealers caught trying to pull a fast one.

In the notice, which is signed by GM North America President Steve Carlisle, the automaker states that it has become aware of dealers having “engaged in practices that do not support a positive sales experience for our customers.” The memo goes on to outline what is and isn’t allowed, and warns that “bad actors” caught violating these rules could see their C8 allocation redirected to other dealerships or “other recourse.”

The memo calls for an end to three specific tactics. The first is charging more than $1,000 to reserve a new Z06 (some dealers have asked for twice that). Also forbidden is selling to brokers who are willing to pay more money up front, something that is explicitly outlawed in GM’s dealership service agreement. Finally, the automaker wants dealers to stop charging outrageous markups, or “market adjustments,” for the car.
While it is good to hear that GM and Chevy are trying to put a stop to this kind of behavior, these aren’t new issues. Certain dealerships have allegedly engaged in these sorts of shenanigans since the C8 was first announced in the summer of 2019, according to AutoEvolution. Why is the automaker finally addressing this behavior now? GM might be choosing to act now before orders for the 2023 model year—when the eagerly anticipated Z06 is slated to debut—open in the spring. 

A representative for GM did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Robb Report.

It should be noted that this sort of behavior isn’t just a GM problem. Earlier this month, Ford tackled similar issues in a memo sent to its dealership network. In the email, the automaker said that those caught asking for additional deposits and payments for the upcoming F-150 Lightning could see their allocations of the all-electric truck redirected to others dealerships.

It Sure Sounds Like Production of the New C8 Corvette Will Begin in May

It Sure Sounds Like Production of the New C8 Corvette Will Begin in May

The new year may be just two weeks old, but Chevrolet is already preparing for 2023.

The Detroit auto giant plans to start producing the 2023 C8 Corvette in early May, according to the Corvette Action Center (h/t Motor1.com). That would mean that the sports car’s eagerly anticipated high-performance variant, the Z06, could be on the road by the time fall rolls around.

The enthusiast website reported on Thursday that General Motor’s Bowling Green, Kentucky plant will stop building the 2022 ‘Vette on May 6 and that production of the 2023 car will begin on May 9. In past years, there has been a “week or two” break between model year changeovers, but it seems that Chevy’s parent company wants to start pumping out the newest C8 as soon as possible. Additionally, the site reports that dealers will begin taking orders for the 2023 on March 24.  (A representative for GM did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Robb Report on Friday morning.)

The upcoming model year is shaping up to be a big one for the C8. It will see the introduction of Z06, which is powered by a noisy 5.5-liter naturally aspirated V-8 with a flat-plane-crankshaft that churns out a hair-raising 670 horses and has a redline of 8,600 rpm. While no official production date has been announced for the variant, Corvette Action Center reports that dealership allocations will lump together all trim levels, suggesting it will be May 9 as well.
Regardless of when production of the 2023 C8 begins, we’re sure GM is hoping for a smoother ride than in past years. Since the current generation ‘Vette was announced back in the summer of 2019, the car has been plagued by nearly every type of production issue imaginable. A UAW strike delayed initial production, then the (ongoing) global pandemic brought life to a standstill leading to multiple supply chain issues and, just last month, 120 C8s had to be destroyed when they sustained damage in a tornado.
Hopefully the fourth time proves to be the charm.

120 C8 Corvettes Damaged by the Kentucky Tornado Will Be Demolished

120 C8 Corvettes Damaged by the Kentucky Tornado Will Be Demolished

Dozens of Chevrolet C8 Corvettes may have survived a tornado last month, but that doesn’t mean they’re out of danger.

In fact, about 120 examples of the iconic sports car are now scheduled to be demolished, according to Jalopnik. The vehicles, which were damaged when a catastrophic tornado hit Kentucky and five other states last month, will reportedly be scrapped to ensure no defective cars end up on the road.

The cars were damaged when a massive tornado struck the General Motors’s plant where the C8 Corvette is built in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Although the toll of the deadly tornado was worse in other areas, the factory suffered major damage, including its roof and employee entrance catching on fire. Fortunately, none of the workers at the plant were hurt, but production was temporarily halted so that the damage could be dealt with, a process that has continues into this year.

The damage also extended to a number of completed vehicles that were ready to be shipped, including the C8 Corvettes that are headed for the crusher. Although footage of the banged-up cars shows varying degrees of harm, you’d think at least some of them could be salvageable. While that may or may not be the case, they will be destroyed to ensure the safety of Chevy’s customers. That means that some customers who were just about to get the mid-engine ‘Vette have to wait even longer to get their hands on the vehicle.
“All customer vehicles coming off of the line after the downtime caused by December’s storm meet the high level of quality our customers expect,” a representative for Chevy told Robb Report on Thursday. “Vehicles and vehicle parts in the plant that were damaged by the storm are being scrapped and will not be used in production.
“If a customer’s order was impacted by the storm, the customer will be contacted by their dealer and their order will be prioritized and re-sequenced back into production, with an expected production date as quickly as possible.”
This is yet another production issue for the C8 Corvette, though. Initial production was delayed by the UAW strike in the fall of 2019, then Covid-19 brought the world to a stop in March 2020, causing more delays and forcing GM to cut production of the 2020 model drastically. This past year wasn’t much better, with supply chain issues causing at least three separate stoppages.
Here’s hoping for a smoother ride in 2022.

With a 329-Mile Range, the GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 Will Start Arriving Next Month

With a 329-Mile Range, the GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 Will Start Arriving Next Month

A few lucky new Hummer EV owners are going to need very big Christmas trees this year.

GMC plans to begin deliveries of its eagerly anticipated all-electric supertruck next month, just in time for the holidays, reports Autoblog. Additionally, the Detroit automaker has revealed that its EV will have a range of 329 miles.
The two exciting pieces of news were delivered during a conference call held by GMC head Duncan Aldred on Tuesday, according to the website. The first announcement means that GMC will be able to deliver its new EV a little over a year after its debut. That’s a rather impressive feat considering all the supply chain issues, particularly the superconductor chip shortage, that have struck the auto industry over the last year. We don’t know how many customers can expect to get the new Hummer next month, but each of them will be receiving the Edition 1 variant. That version makes up over 80 percent of the 125,000 pre-orders the company has taken—or roughly 100,000.

GMC

The Edition 1 also happens to be the Hummer variant with the 329-mile range. The confirmation comes weeks after the MyChevrolet app mistakenly listed the Edition 1’s range at 334 miles. At the time, a rep for the automaker told Robb Report that the unintentional leak was “not accurate,” a statement which has since turned out to be true. It should be noted that since the Edition 1 is a heavy-duty truck, it’s range has not been certified by the EPA and will not be released by the agency, according to Green Car Reports. Future Hummer EVs will be considered light-duty trucks and will receive a rating from the EPA, though. GMC expects those versions to have even better range.
The 329-mile range rating, which was found by using the EPA’s methodology, is 6 percent shy of the 350 miles the brand had been targeting. While no brand likes to miss their own in-house estimate, it’s not uncommon, as both Porsche and Mercedes-Benz have shown. Still, 329 miles is a more than respectable range for an EV, especially one with 1,000 hp that can sprint from zero to 60 in three seconds. The EV can also tow 7,500 pounds and carry 1,300 pounds of cargo, though it’s unknown how much payload will affect the the truck’s range, if at all. The Hummer’s range is also 15 miles more than the only other electric truck currently on the market, the Rivian R1T.

If GMC isn’t able to deliver everything it promised with the Hummer EV, it looks like it’s going to come awfully close. And thing seems certain: You’ll start seeing the zero-emission behemoth on a road near you in the very near future.

A Chevy App Posted the New Electric Hummer’s Range at 334 Miles. GMC Says It’s Wrong.

GMC’s sibling company Chevrolet may have just accidentally leaked the new Hummer’s range.

An eagle-eyed General Motors obsessive appears to have stumbled across the eagerly anticipated EV’s range when they updated the MyChevrolet app late last week, reports Autoblog. While browsing the program’s Energy Assist page they found an entry for the Hummer that listed a range of 334 miles. But GMC claims that number is inaccurate.

The discovery was made by Hummer Chat forum user BahamaTodd. They shared a screengrab from the app that shows the estimated range figures for the automaker’s EVs, including 334 miles for the new Hummer on a full battery. Another image from their post showed a map illustrating how far they could expect to drive the all-electric truck before needing to recharge its battery.

GMC

BahamaTodd’s findings suggests that the EV’s range will fall short of the 350-mile range target that GMC promised when the reborn truck was announced just over a year ago. The listing on MyChevrolet is 95 percent of what the automaker had been hoping for (though it easily beats out the other EVs listed, the Chevy Bolt sedan and EUV, which have ranges of 259 and 247 miles, respectively). We’ve seen other marque’s miss by more, but we’re sure GMC would like to squeeze another 16 miles out of the Hummer’s Ultium battery if it’s at all possible.
And it sounds like that’s exactly what GMC will try to do before an official EPA rating is released. When reached for comment on Monday morning a representative for the automaker told Robb Report: “The GMC Hummer EV range that was accidentally posted on the MyChevrolet app is not accurate. GMC is still working on validating range estimates. Stay tuned for updates in the coming weeks.”
So, is the MyChevrolet app number legit or simply an inaccurate placeholder? We should find out soon. Production of the Hummer EV Edition 1, which is the only version of the truck that will be available as part of the 2022 model year, is expected to begin within the coming weeks. Although that limited run sold out within 10 minutes, there’s still one left if you’re willing to pay the Neiman Marcus markup.

Neiman Marcus’s Newest Holiday Gift? A Very Special $285,000 GMC Hummer Edition 1 EV

Are you still feeling a little sore about missing out one of the first all-electric GMC Hummers? Well, you have one last chance to get one via Neiman Marcus.

A special one-off example of the battery-powered super truck’s Edition 1 variant is one of the headline gifts in the department store’s annual Christmas book. As you may have guessed, it won’t come cheap. The asking price is $285,000.

If that number made you do a double take, you’re not alone. Neiman Marcus is actually charging well more than double the Edition 1’s original $112,000 price tag. Of course, the variant’s price tag stopped mattering when the Hummer EV sold out 10 minutes after pre-orders opened up last December. Production of the new Hummer hasn’t even started yet, but it’ll be all but impossible to get your hands on the EV until the less-exclusive 3X variant goes on sale in late 2022.

So, why all the fuss about the Edition 1? In addition to being the first all-electric Hummer, it’s loaded with all the top-end features and extras GMC currently offers for the vehicle. This starts with a tri-motor powertrain that can generate 1,000 horses and 11,500 ft lbs of twist, which is more than enough power for some serious on- or off-road fun. It can also rocket from zero to 60 mph in less in three seconds and travel 350 miles on a charge. Inside, you’ll find a roomy interior with space for five adults and two large displays up front, including a 13.4-inch infotainment touchscreen powered by Epic Games’ Unreal 3-D engine.

Neiman Marcus

Neiman Marcus’s Hummer isn’t any old Edition 1, either—it’s a special Barrett-Jackson example that was made specifically for the department’s store’s holiday catalog. It’s got a unique interior with special lighting, two-tone leather seats, a bespoke steering wheel and Neiman Marcus badging, and comes with its own charging station for your home. You’ll also be invited to Barrett-Jackson’s upcoming Scottsdale auction, where you’ll receive the truck on stage, get to watch the event from Carolyn and Craig Jackson’s skybox and even get to drop the gavel on an auction. Finally, delivery of the truck anywhere in the contiguous United States is included, as well as a priority parking spot at your local Neiman Marcus.
If you’re interested in this Holiday Hummer, you might want to call the department store now to reserve the one-off truck. No Edition 1 seems to go unclaimed for long.

The Chevy Camaro Is Reportedly Being Replaced by a 4-Door Electric Sedan

The Chevy Camaro Is Reportedly Being Replaced by a 4-Door Electric Sedan

Dodge may be convinced the muscle car has a place our electric future, but GM seems less sure.

There had been some speculation Chevrolet Camaro might not make it past this generation, but the automaker is apparently at work on an electrified version of the vehicle, according to Automotive News (via Motor1.com). But the next iteration of the famous nameplate won’t be a performance coupé; instead, it sounds like it could be a sedan.

Despite several reports predicting its demise, the Camaro, it appears, will live on into the second half of the decade. The trade publication reports that the classic muscle car will do so with some some pretty dramatic changes, though. The first is an all-electric powertrain, which won’t surprise anyone paying attention to the industry. The second is a little less expected, though: The car will have four doors. If true, that would mark the first time the Camaro has featured more than two doors since its introduction way back in 1967.

A representative for GM told Robb Report the company would not “engage in speculation” about any new model.

Chevrolet

Of course, this wouldn’t be the first time a muscle car changed class for its electric debut. The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E is an all-electric crossover SUV, after all (and a pretty good one at that). But what Chevy appears to be contemplating is different. The standard Mustang and Mach-E co-exist together in the Ford’s lineup, whereas the planned electric Camaro sedan would likely replace the muscle car completely. To be sure, it’s a bold move and one that will likely anger more than a few Camaro loyalists. Still, we imagine a fair number of diehards will feel that any version of the car is better than none.
As Chevy contemplates the future of its classic car, Dodge is moving full speed ahead into the electric era. Earlier this month, the Detroit marque announced it would unveil a fully electric muscle car in 2024. It’s unclear what name the vehicle will be—either Challenger or Chargerz—but the battery-powered speed machine will be built on a next-gen electric platform capable of churning out a beastly 886 hp, accelerating from zero to 60 mph in two seconds and driving 500 miles on a single charge.
Whether or not the Camaro becomes an electric sedan, one thing is sure: Speed freaks will have plenty of muscle to choose from in the electric era.
