The new Hummer is an off-road vehicle with all-wheel-drive and, according to the manufacturer, is powered by either two or three motors, and utilizes multiple driving modes to handle a variety of terrain. Most Hummer owners will likely rarely use anything but the normal driving mode, tuned for street driving. But once off the pavement, the Hummer affords the driver a couple of options, Off-Road and Terrain. According to Cars.com, Off-Road is set up for driving on loose services and handling trail driving and soft ground. Terrain mode is meant more for extreme, low-speed high-torque driving, such as rock crawling. In each mode, the computer sets slip and gearing and torque vectoring that is appropriate for conditions.
The Hummer has another mode of driving that comes from a unique four-wheel steering setup. The rear wheels are lined such that they can turn up to ten degrees in either direction to aid in steering. That means this large vehicle can turn a circle as small as most compact cars. However, it has another trick up its sleeve that no other car or truck has, Crab Walk. The Hummer can turn, as Edmunds explains, front and rear wheels both in the same direction to cause the vehicle to drive sideways. In practice, the truck moves forward and to the left or right while continuing to be parallel with the road. It is a novel feature that is probably most useful as a party trick than anything, but very cool.
