XPEL Protects Everything on New GMC Hummer EV

The GMC Hummer EV is a 9,000-pound status symbol in the growing electric vehicle market. Its performance matches its size. With a combined 1,000 horsepower and 1,200 lb.-ft of torque powertrain, the Hummer EV packs a punch when it comes to acceleration. The 18-foot-long electric truck sprints from zero to 60 in 3.3 seconds using its available Watts to Freedom launch control drive mode. Moreover, it features rear-wheel steering and can tow up to 7,500 pounds.

A vehicle of this magnitude draws attention. So, protecting it while boasting its styling with a personalized touch makes sense. This 2023 GMC Hummer EV achieves that goal with a two-tone mix of ULTIMATE PLUS and STEATH satin-finish PPF topped off with FUSION PLUS ceramic coating.

In addition, the truck's wheels, glass, and brake calipers received XPEL ceramic coating. PRIME XR PLUS window tint provided the UV-blocking cherry on top of this triple-threat paint protection treatment done by the pros at Imperial Auto Salon in Kirkland, Washington.

Using ULTIMATE PLUS and STEALTH PPF for Enhanced Custom Paint Protection

This Hummer EV features both gloss and satin finish PPF. The primary exterior paint wears STEALTH PPF. Meanwhile, the electric truck's factory gloss metallic black trim, acrylic top, and interior piano trim are protected in high-gloss ULTIMATE PLUS PPF. This contrasting combination provides a custom look with warranty-backed premium paint protection.

The results speak for themselves, as photos of the truck present a matte exterior sheen with black gloss fender flares. It gives the impression that it left the factory this way. But more importantly, this new look protects the GMC Hummer EV against rock chips, UV rays, and light scratch marks.

Interior UV Protection with PRIME XR PLUS Window Tint

PRIME XR PLUSwindow tint provides valuable features that go beyond reducing sun glare. For starters, the film's multilayer nano-ceramic construction offers sun shielding without reducing outbound visibility. As a result, you get UV and heat protection during the day without sacrificing visibility at night. Moreover, XPEL window tint does not interfere with radio, cellular, or Bluetooth signals.

But the most crucial benefit of PRIME XR PLUS window tint is blocking 99% of harmful UV rays and deflecting 96% of infrared heat. It helps keep the interior cool while providing peace of mind against a leading cause of skin cell damage. XPEL strives to deliver the highest quality UV protection film. XPEL automotive window film has earned the Seal of Recommendation from the Skin Cancer Foundation for its UV protection quality.

FUSION PLUS Ceramic Coating Helps Keep a Spotless Look Rain or Shine

The larger the vehicle, the more sheet metal there is to clean. XPEL FUSION PLUS Ceramic Coating helps reduce the stress and labor of washing and maintaining a spot-free clearcoat. FUSION PLUS Ceramic Coating works like a protective barrier preventing bugs, rain, pollen, and other contaminants from etching into a paint's clear coat.

With hydrophobic properties, the water beads up and rolls off the car, helping to prevent dirt and other contaminants from sticking to a coated surface. As a result, XPEL ceramic coating makes cleaning the satin and gloss PPF on this Hummer EV easier.

In addition, XPEL's line of ceramic coating products provides high-quality protection for various vehicle surfaces like glass, wheels, and trim. Each variety of FUSION PLUS is specifically formulated for the different surface types. Applying XPEL ceramic coating to the Hummer EV's wheels will help prevent brake dust and iron deposits from sticking to and staining the paint on the wheels and calipers.
