DETROIT — GMC has started building the SUV version of the Hummer EV and the third-generation Canyon midsize pickup.
Production of the 2024 Hummer EV SUV began Monday at General Motors’ Factory Zero plant in Detroit, officials said. The 2023 Canyon entered production last week at Wentzville Assembly in Missouri. Deliveries of both vehicles will begin in the next two months.
Three of four Canyon trims are in production — Denali, AT4 and Elevation — and the AT4X will follow, Duncan Aldred, vice president of global Buick and GMC, told reporters Monday. The redesigned pickup is taller and wider across all trim levels.
Aldred said GMC has received 90,000 reservations for the Hummer SUV and pickup combined, and it has temporarily stopped taking additional reservations so it can work on fulfilling existing demand through 2023 and 2024.
Sales of the Edition 1 Hummer pickup, priced at more than $110,000, began in December 2021. Less-expensive trims initially were expected to become available last fall, but a GMC spokesman said they will begin to roll out this year. GM sold 855 Hummer pickups through the end of 2022.
“Production volume last year was always intended to be very, very low,” Aldred said of the Hummer pickup, adding that output will ramp up in the second half of this year.
