    GMC Will Also Offer Hummer SUV If Pickup Is Successful

    Business Week
    January 10, 2020

    In addition to the pickup, GM also has a large sport utility vehicle in the works for Hummer. It will be produced soon after the truck if the brand relaunch proves successful, the people said.

    In other news, the GMC-Hummer line will be completed with a small sedan based on the now retired Chevy Cruze.

    At least the Hummer name will allow the vehicle to be priced correctly.

    Please do not ignore Range Rover or Rivian..

    I think a big part of the allure of Tesla is the brand and that it is NOT an existing brand. I'm wondering if that is why GM is reviving the Hummer name to see if they can capture some of that.

    I actually find it odd they are going with a truck 1st vs an SUV, when I think Hummer I think SUV. Interested to see where this is going.

    I think you're right on target (snowflakes and buttercups please ignore that word) with that assessment. Hummer is a brand that GM didn't let die in the fields due to lack of TLC, unlike the rest of their lineup. Whether it meets the same fate because the same group of cloistered office geeks are still running the show remains to be seen.

    Tesla. New name, new idea, new company, new genius at the top. And make no mistake, Musk IS a genius. Look at what he's done. And it wouldn't surprise me if he or his proxies are on Mars within 20-25 years. Private enterprise, creative genius, lack of government shackles, why, you could go to the moon with such advantages!

    Yes and no. Trucks are the point of the spear methinks, the biggest baddest barroom brawlers in the lineup. Next come the SUVs CUVs/whateverUVs fall in as the lower-ranking troops, by size and aggressive military appearance.

    Looks and names are what will separate some of these. GM wore out and ignored and did not feed and care for properly their brands, Caddy, Buick, Chibby, GM to a lesser degree I think.

    Comments like this still make me laugh. The public is not ready for electric, it wont take off, they are slow, where will I charge, there is no sound, blah blah blah. If you look at the turds of electric cars such as the Leaf, Prius, Bolt, Clarity, Ioniq, Kona, etc. then yeah, they are pathetically slow and meant for cities that involve sitting in traffic. However, they fulfill their need as they don't need long range capacity, as most people charge them every night.

    Alternatively, step up to the big boys such as the Model S, I-Pace, Taycan, E-Tron and the new Mustang Mach E. These are seriously quick automobiles that have ranges of 300-400 miles and only need charging once a week for most drivers. What people need to understand is that Tesla could give 2 ****s less about the automotive industry. He is merely doing this to convert the world and its manufacturers to electric cars. And guess what, it worked. Do you honestly think that all these manufacturers would invest the time, money, engineering and marketing into something that won't take off? Once the battery technology becomes cheaper and more consumers make the switch, the price will drop considerably. I feel that's the current limiting factor.

    As for the sound that all these sports car lovers want? Yeah, that's gone, but guess what? There is now -0- chance of cops giving you a ticket for that. There is also -0- chance of a cop hearing you racing either.

    Even a mostly mundane conservative me has to say: "Now that would be fun" even if the bean counters want to rain all over that parade. I mightn't buy one but I know those who sure the heck would in a heartbeat(pardon the pun).

    Understand the electrics did not happen in a vacuum. China, the Euroweenies, and US bureaucrats pushed and legislated and pushed, creating more and more difficult, costly emissions standards--useful and realistic or not--for gas and diesel cars.

    Aided and abetted by the globaloney warming sales pitch/panic attack, many people have bought into the brainwashing/strong arm tactics. This is NOT the Model T revolution, powered by the market.
    Without the Central Planners' push, electrics would be years back from where they are now.

    Central Planning is typically a series of disasters of policy or finance or outcome or all of the above. Popcorn.

    BTW, how do you like your Optima turbo?
