GMC finally has a new date in mind for the Hummer reveal: Tuesday, October 20.

The all-electric SUV and truck were supposed to be unveiled to the world back in late May, but well, you know.

We’ve also learned that Crab Mode, which we wrote about last week, isn’t a new venereal disease that sleazebag tourists need to avoid while on the wrong side of town in certain cities. It’s a feature that uses the Hummer EV’s four-wheel steering to allow the vehicle to move diagonally. That could come in handy off-road.

Not only will the reveal be shown on October 20 – no details yet on what time or how to watch – but interested customers can begin making reservations that day.

Other details we know so far? GMC promises “up to” 1,000 horsepower, “up to” 11,500 lb-ft of torque (not a typo), and 0-60 mph in an estimated 3 seconds. Those other numbers are factory estimates, too. Hummer should be on sale in the fall of 2021.

The video below shows an actual crab before showing a low-angle shot of the vehicle’s tires moving diagonally on a beach somewhere. We suspected Crab Mode would do something like this.

All will be revealed next month.
