Have you ever felt alienated by the automotive industry’s stubborn refusal to stray from the traditional linear forward and reverse modes of transportation we’ve come to expect from our vehicles for over a century? If so, you might want to sit down and prepare yourself, because General Motors has some exciting news for you: the all-new GMC Hummer is set to rattle the market to its very core with an all-new crabwalk mode.
Before you get too excited, don’t expect that the all-electric Hummer’s crabwalk mode will let you use the super-SUV as an amphibious vehicle, or that it has extendable pincers for dealing with jerks who cut you off in traffic. The Hummer’s crabwalk mode offers four-wheel steering that allows the driver to control both the front and the rear wheels.
Traditional steering columns only control the front wheels, while the rear wheels simply trail behind. With GMC’s innovative new crabwalk mode, both sets of wheels turn, which allows the new Hummer to travel diagonally. This feature will be especially useful when traveling through tricky terrain on the trail or when you’re looking to spice up your commute by striking awe in onlookers.
Even though the new Hummer hasn’t made it to the lot of Jim Causley Buick GMC Truck just yet, you can crabwalk your way over to one of our sales associates to reserve yours today.
