1994 AM General HMMWV Test Drive

 

The HMMWV (High Mobility Multipurpose wheeled Vehicle) Hummve for insiders, began its career in 1979 as a prototype, prepared by AM General for testing by the US Army which wanted to replae the M-151 which had come to the end of its career. The 2 AM General competitors were Chrysler, with a vehicle derived from the project Saluki and Teledyne, with an adaptation of the Cheetah which was on another day and under other skies to be called the Lamborghini LM002.
The American star of the Gulf War and the mission in Somalia entered the civilian market for 1994. One of the first to acquire one was A. Schwarzenegger, the Terminator in person. If the parallel between the violent roles of the actor and the vocation of the Hummer is evident, I have the desire to find out why beyond show business, did Arnold picked this type of vehicle.

  1. It looks like in the video those CJ’s are not aired down properly, that is costly on a trail. If they were they probably would have made it up that hill very easily. So in a way they were comparing apples to oranges.

    Also the wide track of the Humvee/Hummer H1 goes on the outside of a trail possibly giving better traction but also not treading lightly. That is a fair advantage and disadvantage over a Jeep though

    I love them both though and wish I had them both, luckily I have the Jeep at least. I have always had a soft spot for Jeeps so the H1 will have to wait if I ever do get one

    I remember the Hummer H1. While I was unimpressed with its styling and appearance, I liked its mechanical underneath. If only all SUVs had a diesel engine as standard, or why the hell 4 wheel independent suspension?

    Sir, yes, Sir… hehe.
    Why was the H1 discontinued?
    Sir
