    The GMC Hummer EV pickup due to arrive next year sounds like a beast, both in terms of size and power, but buyers will still have a considerable choice. It has to be that way, what with the cash involved in retooling Detroit-Hamtramck and getting a fully electric truck off the ground. It's...

    The new Hummer! So much horsepower, so many torques (potentially), so much electricity!
