As you saw in the video above, the GMC Hummer EV has three four-wheel steer options, also known as drive modes. By turning a dial, you can access these drive modes. Let’s review your options. 

  • Auto mode: This is the default setting. It automatically activates four-wheel steer for tighter turns at low speeds. This is great for keeping traction and control as you drive off-road. 
  • Off mode: Turn to this option when you want to experience traditional steering without four-wheel steering. 
  • CrabWalk mode: This available mode is for extreme off-road driving. It matches the turning of all four wheels of your vehicle, which means you can drive diagonally.
