History

Originally released in the civilian market in 1992, the Hummer H1 owes its birth to the popularity of photos from Operation Desert Storm and the enthusiastic campaign from actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who personally owns several variants of Hummer vehicles. GM announced that 2006 would be the last model year for the Hummer H1 with production winding down in June 2006, due to a new emission laws for Diesel engine vehicles which take effect in 2007. 1992 (MCMXCII) was a leap year starting on Wednesday. ...

Thanks to the cost of EPA Tier 2 Bin 5 emissions standards, the cost involving recertification for a low volume civilian variant vehicle was not able to be justified. AM General currently has orders for an excess of 50,000 new HMMWVs to be produced between 2006-2009 for the United States Military. AM General also will continue to produce the H1, just not the Alpha. These vehicles will be sold through Fleet sales. 2006 (MMVI) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ... 2009 (MMIX) will be a common year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar. ... The armed forces of the United States of America consist of the United States Army United States Navy United States Air Force United States Marine Corps United States Coast Guard Note: The United States Coast Guard has both military and law enforcement functions. ...


It is rumored that the next H1 will most-likely bear a refined version of the prior 6.5L Turbo Diesel engine, but that has not been confirmed. Selling the H1's through fleet sales will allow AM General to not be subjected to the new 2007 Tier 2 Bin 5 emission rules and regulations. AM General has sufficient fleet orders to produce 600-800 units per year right now. [1] [2] [3] The fleet H1s will end up using the standard 6.5L Turbo Diesel that has been commonplace in GM and commercial applications.

Specifications

The Hummer H1 has three common variants: a convertible-like soft top, a four-door hard top pickup truck and a Wagon body version. Other less known variants include a two-door pickup truck and a four-door slantback. At this time, the convertible/soft top and the station wagon versions are the only ones available in the mass market. The two door and four door pickup versions are only available in fleet livery.

Currently, five engine types and three automatic transmission types can be found in Hummer H1s. The common engine/transmission combinations are:

The Hummer H1 shares some common driveline parts with its HMMWV brethren. Items like brakes, differentials, frame and major body panels (hood, tailgate and quarter panels) are identical between the HMMWV and the Hummer H1. All Hummer H1s and HMMWVs come off the same first stage assembly line, and then are separated midway to either become a military HMMWV or a civilian H1.

Hummer H1s are unique in the way they handle off road. They are inherently very stable, thanks to their wide stance. They also can ford 30 inches (76 cm) of water, climb a 22-inch (56 cm) step, have a stock ground clearance of 16 inches (41 cm) (thanks to its design of tucking driveline components inside a channel, which subsequently intrudes into the cabin space of the vehicle), have approach/departure angles of 72/37.5 degrees and most H1s are equipped with Central Tire Inflation System (CTIS), which enables the driver to increase or decrease the tire air pressure at will. A ford is a section of water (most commonly a section of a river) that is sufficiently shallow as to be traversable by wading. ...


Hummer H1s have many unusual features. They use inboard brakes. They have geared hubs, allowing the drivetrain's half shafts to be up high for greater clearance. The radiator is up high, sloping back over the engine. Rather than using simple runflat tires, aluminum or rubber inserts are an optional feature for runflat ability. A central tire inflation system is available as an option. Chemical warfare resistant paint is available only on the military version. An inboard braking system is an automobile technology where the brakes are not located in the wheels, as is common today, but instead near the differential. ...

A half shaft is an automotive term used to describe a driveshaft that goes from a vehicles differential to one of the driven wheels. ...


Hummer H1 Alpha for MY06 Onwards

An extensively reengineered H1 powered by GM's Duramax Diesel and 5-speed Allison transmission. The old version of the HUMMER H1 with the 6.5L "Optimizer" turbo-diesel engine was struggling to leave the dealer forecourt. In 2002, the CEO of AM General (Jim Armour) took the idea of repowering the famous H1 to GM Executives including Bob Lutz and the GM Luxury Vehicle committee. GM soon approved the use of their Duramax and Allison powertrain for the H1 truck. This would support the continuation of the H1 as the grand-daddy of the HUMMER portfolio and it would allow AM General to give the truck a much needed dose of updating in terms of power, torque, refinement and the ability to meet 2004MY Heavy Duty EPA Emissions requirements. This article is about the company. ... The Duramax is General Motors diesel engine family for large trucks. ... Rudolf Christian Karl Diesel (1858-1913), inventor of the Diesel engine. ...


The update program commenced in late 2002 with production launch slated to be fall of 2004. The engineering team quickly chose the engine variant out of the GMT560 truck (the C4500 Duramax) because it packaged better into the H1 engine bay. None the less, 23 engine component changes were required and the team had to do a 2.5 inch body lift to accommodate the taller Duramax engine and its turbo-housing. The GMT560 engine calibration was used with little modification, to give 300Hp and 520 Ft*Lbs of torque. Because the Duramax engine has cooled EGR and an internal engine oil cooler, the team had to deal with a big 40% heat rejection increase to engine coolant but were unable to increase the size of the cooling pack between the air-lift brackets that protrude from the hood. This meant dramtically re-engineering the fan system, putting the fan directly under the coolpack and driving it through a new special gearbox, directly off the crankshaft damper pulley. Several other cooling system modifications were required to assist with cold-starting from minus 30 fahrenheit.


Other major modifications included the use of s special high-strength steel in the chassis frame, a new more powerful steering gear, revised quieter axle differentials, the re-design of the geared hubs to use better quieter helical gears, a new induction, exhaust and electrical power system and some re-engineering of the fuel supply and filtration system.


Offroad, the much higher torque of the engine combined with a lower gearing ratio (about 44.5 to 1 in low lock) made the truck an awesome beast. The Duramax deliveres peak torque low down in the rev range and the team actually had to calibrate in torque management to protect certain driveline parts. This new torque profile coupled with centralized tire inflation and AM Generals new interior resulted in the complete re-enginering of everything except the carry-over body made of aluminum beams and panels.


The program was cancelled after MY06 because GM made a decision to withdraw its technical and financial support to future model year engineering and recertification.


Price

Price is projected to be around US$129,399 for the open-top, and US$140,796 for the wagon. The United States dollar is the official currency of the United States. ...

Trivia

  • In 1990, before the H1 was sold to the public, and even before Operation: Desert Storm, AM General tested two matching white H1s by entering them in the "London To Peking Motor Challenge", a car rally consisting largely of vintage automobiles. The H1s performed flawlessly, traversing the rough roads and desert heat of central Asia with ease and even performing stunts like climbing sand dunes in the Gobi Desert for the amusement of local villagers. Highlights of the drive were broadcast in the United States on ESPN.
  • In 2003, there were only 10,877 Hummer H1s in existence.
  • In 2004, GM sold 447 Hummer H1s
  • In 2005, GM sold 374 Hummer H1s [4]
  • Crawl ratio of the old 6.5L H1 was 35.35:1. The H1 Alpha is now 44.5:1.
  • The Hummer H1 uses front brake calipers from the AMC Eagle, steering column from the Ford LTD, ignition key set from the Ford Escort, armrests from the Jeep Cherokee, and seats from Isringhausen.
  • The Hummer H1's exterior is a combination of SMC fiberglass (for the hood) steel, and aluminum. Its body panels are bonded together with a combination of rivets, bolts and cyanoacrylic (ie, Superglue) adhesives.
  • It is featured in the Playstation 2 game Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition/Remix.
  • In Pixar's 2006 film Cars, Arnold Schwarzeneger (one of the first civilians to own an H1 Hummer) voices a cameo starring an anthropomorphic Hummer H1 known as "The Governator".
