Hummer H2

In the 1970s, when the Jeep was no longer capable of meeting modern military needs, the High Mobility Multi-Purpose Wheeled Vehicle—also called the Hummer—was introduced.

Built by AM General, the original Hummer had generous ground clearance, independent coil-sprung suspension, and minimal overhangs to allow for steep approach and departure angles.  Over the next several years, the Hummer was tested in a variety of circumstances, weather, and terrain to ensure that it passed military muster.

Hummer played a huge part in Operation Desert Storm.  As Hummers were seen daily on the news all over the world, hundreds of Americans contacted AM Motors to find out how they could get one of them in their driveway.  As demand grew, the company worked to develop a civilian model.  The first civilian Hummer was introduced in 1992.  For a price of about $100,000, anyone could have their own military vehicle.

In 1999, General Motors bought the Hummer name, including its marketing and distribution rights.  GM built a model that was smaller and easier for civilians to use on a day-to-day basis, than the original Hummer.  Called the H2, this scaled-down version is mass-produced, and therefore, more affordable for the average civilian.
