Very few cars can be easily recognized as the sport utility vehicle SUV Hummer. With muscular body and strong, the cars are manufactured to serve in the military and its design shows it. Fact that the "huge rock" is no different from the tanks both in shape and features, but for the Hummer driving fans, this would not be a problem. Coming to the Hummer dealer, all you see is the SUV. I do not have the Hummer vehicle produced, or at least not yet available.
Hummer brand can really make us remember another brand in the military, that is Jeep. Formed by Willys-Overland company in the 1940s, Jeep brand became popular that when Mr. Henry J. Kaiser bought Willys-Overland company in 1953, its name was changed to Kaiser-Jeep and Jeep remains next word. In 1970, the American automobile company bought Kaiser-Jeep and renamed it the Jeep Corporation. At that time, Jeep was producing vehicles through two divisions: One is the Commercial Products division in Toledo, Ohio, and the Government Products division in South Bend, Indiana.
A year later, the Government Products division became an independent company known as AM General. In the early 1980s, this company, now owned by LTV Corp. has designed a vehicle under contract with the U.S. Army. Called mobile multi-purpose vehicles (High Mobility Multi-Purpose Wheeled Vehicle - HMMWV, or Humvee, as it became known), it is designed to make the vehicle combat in the military. AM General signed a production contract in 1983 (the first contract in many contracts with the U.S. Army) with 55.000 requests for car in 5 years time.
AM General's Humvees really stand out in the Gulf War in the early 90s. The use of discount car during the war helped it become so popular and not only limited within military circles. Finally, AM General (now under the ownership of the Renco Group) decided for the civil Humvee vehicles in 1992, was named Hummer. In 1999, General Motors bought the Hummer brand and authorities responsible for the development, advertising and product distribution of the Hummer SUV in the future.
Type the original Hummer, now called the H1, still popular and only a small number of vehicles produced each year. Uniqueness of this vehicle plays an important role in the creation of expensive SUVs, a fairly typical model of the firm. Led by GM, the brand has expanded to other cars and still own the Hummer bravado but with better conditions of the roads these trucks were able to fit all the people in general.
