A Brief History of Hummer
The Hummer was originally manufactured by AM General, which expressed interest in selling a civilian version of their Humvee in the late 1980s. Part of this demand came from Arnold Schwarzenegger, who spotted the Army Convoy Humvee while filming Kindergarten Cop in Oregon and demanded that a civilian version be put on the market. The first two civilian H1 Hummers were sold to Schwarzenegger in 1992.
AM General sold the Hummer brand name to General Motors in December 1999. Shortly after, General Motors introduced designs for the Hummer H2 and H3, and by 2006, Hummer vehicles were being sold in 33 countries. However, in 2008, the demand for SUVs began to decrease because of increasing oil prices, and General Motors began considering selling the Hummer brand. On June 1, 2009, General Motors announced its bankruptcy which included the termination of the Hummer brand. However, there are still plenty of dedicated Hummer drivers out there, including in Greene and Montgomery counties. Additionally, Hummer is set to return in 2021 as a sub-brand of GMC.
The following are Hummer models that can be found on the road today:
- Hummer H1: The Hummer H1 is a four-wheel-drive utility vehicle that was manufactured from 1992-2006. The vehicle was available in three major varieties: a four-door hardtop sport utility truck, a convertible-like soft top, and an "Alpha Wagon" body version.
- Hummer H2: This large SUV was in production from 2003-2009, and sold over 153,000 units in the United States during that time.
- Hummer H3: The Hummer H3 is an off-road vehicle that was manufactured from 2005-2010 by General Motors.
