Like the Jeep before it, the Hummer is a civilian vehicle that came as a direct result of its success in the battlefield. The vehicle had its start in 1983, when the US military commissioned AM General to build a High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle, (HMMWV) which came to become known as the "Humvee." The Humvee became enormously popular in the early 1990s thanks to its use by the US Army in the Persian Gulf Conflict, and by 1992, the Renco Group introduced a civilian version that they called the Hummer. GM bought the brand in 1999, and eventually introduced two smaller Hummers it called the H2 and H3. During its restructuring in 2009, GM sold Hummer to China's Sichuan Tengzhong Heavy Industrial Machinery Co.
Hummers are long, wide and boxy, and the brand's fans wouldn't have it any other way. Since these vehicles were originally designed for off-road military use, they are rugged and roomy enough to handle nearly any job. Learn more about these SUVs by browsing the model pages below.
