What Happened To The Hummer?

The Hummer was an angular, militaristic, go-anywhere truck that became an emblem of 1990s pop culture. General Motors' Hummer was a coveted status symbol sought by celebrities and a sometimes mocked and vilified example of how far of America's newfound love for SUVs had gone. But in 2009, GM put several of its brands to the ax, including Pontiac, Saab, and Hummer. While the Hummer had a brief lifespan of just under two decades, it made a lasting impression on the auto industry.
Clarification: General Motors ended Oldsmobile production in 2004, a few years before GM stopped producing the other brands mentioned at 8:05.

  • I went from a 92 jeep Laredo which I have to say was a great truck....never got stuck in a snow storm....but upgraded to a 2007 h2 limited edition victory red and all I can say is this truck is fuc!!ing awesome and I will never ever buy any other truck on the market as this truck is an icon and no other car/truck manufacturer on the planet has even tried to copy it....its one of a kind and for those of you who don't have one......you have no idea what this truck is capable of doing and even though its coming up on being 13 years old I would still not trade it in for anything current on the market....this truck was ahead of its time...I am proud and keeping this truck until the day I die!!!!!!…...oh and by the way I drove my truck on a 220 mile round trip and only used a half of tank of gas so I got 14 miles to the gallon....not to bad for a 6400 lb truck with 33 inch off road tires......around town I will admit its worse but who cares as gas prices finally came down and stabilized still this truck is a beast.....would buy another one if I could!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • A wonderful lady suggested to some people in the Deep South the Hummer should be the official vehicle of a planned memorial museum. The museum is for an American author who, as a young boy with his pet pooch, contributed to the American home front during WWII. (Later on in life, that same person and his pet kitty, contributed to the same thing during peacetime.)

    • Of the past two decades. Don't forget that distinctiveness plays a role too. I don't think that my mom would be able to distinguish between a Camaro and Mustang, by I can guarantee you that she could sort a Hummer, Beetle, and Prius from every other car on the market, no problem.

    • The H1 can be modified to have a completely different engine setup, as well as an overhauled transmission. The mods are expensive though. Chris fix bought one a few months ago, and his has over $70,000 worth of modifications to make it viable for daily use.

  • The Hummer died because of fuel prices, hype factor, and size. Today most SUVs are just raised up family sedans. Most big SUVs like the Tahoe and Yukons are still rare. Hummers looked the same that look eventually lost its appeal. The Hummer is also not that rugged, it is too heavy and not as good a Range Rover at off roading. That's why there's a lot more Range Rover than Hummers.
