Interesting article showing how all 3 trucks currently line up against each other.

I love seeing folding depth on an ev. Not saying that they aren't putting the electronics as high as possible, but I have seen too many g wagens stranded because of electronics shorting out during fording and they aren't even EVs. All that tech and built by GM, you are just asking to get stranded in the middle of a body of water. Better make sure your insurance policy covers coast guard air lift rescue of your Hummer.
 
The same could be said about the TRX. It has yet to be taken in water by anyone other than RAM. We have no idea what submerging a hellcat engine will do even with the intake and alternator higher. The most I have to deal with around here is a foot if my yard floods

True, the TRX may encounter some issues, but these would pale in comparison to anything faced by water intrusion in a lithium ion cell. The results could be catastrophic. I am sure that they are taking prescribed steps to mitigate liability in the event of this type of failure, but it is still GM ...
My point is, you won't find me in line to be an early adopter of EV offroad technology. I am sure they will get it dialed in at some point, but there are many more variables when building for off highway travel than when making a commuter car that might see a gravel driveway on occasion. We need people to be real world product testers for these, and at a price point around 120k it is enticing when you factor cheaper fuel and no fluid changes into the equation, but it is just too early for me to even consider this as an alternative to an internal combustion engine for this purpose.
That aside, if your intent is to buy this to take up 2 parking spots at Target and then drive home, it will probably be just fine.
 
That looks like there will be some expensive repairs... he or she must not care.... Headline should be “1st Lamborghini Boat for sale” ...

My dirt bikes have Lithium batteries. And I’ve submerged them many times. No issues with the batteries.
 
So my question when talking about EV vehicles remains. What can it tow and for what distance?

Congrats @Futant you don’t need to worry about an EV for awhile. Cheers
 
Man I can't wait till I can spec my Hummer EV. WTF mode going to be awesome! Check out the video in the link

 
Are you definitely getting one? I have a reservation but not sure if I will fill it
My original plan for my channel was:
2020: TRX
2021: Raptor
2022: Hummer EV3X
 
You could just get 1 of 3 then a supercar
When I grow up and graduate to the big kids table. I hope so in the next couple years

Of course you were fine. Good luck out there!
