This is off-topic. But are any of you familiar with Halo video game? And how the Warthog is used by the military, and the civilians?(billboards) This hummer thing reminds me of that. Military vehicle becoming civilian...because it's cool.:p

but, yeah - cool designs

Looks like a Toyota FJ Cruiser. Which, is not a bad thing, IMO.

My next door neighbor has one, I don't think it's that bad. It's gotten good marks for an off-roader, too. Styling is love or hate. With the problems Toyota is having these days with quality and surging accelerators, I'd probably think twice about getting one. My wife has a 2006 Rav4, and we haven't had a problem with it.

I've seen them driving around from time to time..ugliest things to come out of a factory on 4 wheels tbh. I can only wonder what the owner is one to buy something like that..and am tempted to pull him over and ask for some.

I think the real problem is that GM has tried to make them luxurious at the same time.

WRONG!

Most jeeps are strippers.

Loose some weight and the engine will do just fine!

The problem with the Hummer is that it has no history to speak of. The original army Jeep was introduced as the mechanical mule and was so successful that it lasted up till the late 70's as the Army's primary material moving vehicle. That, coupled with the fact that anyone could find one in a junkyard as Army Surplus from WWII made the thing incredibly cheap. Also, the Jeep is nothing but 4 wheels and an engine. The Hummer was introduced in the early 80's as the Jeep's replacement, but it never really got a chance to shine due to TRANSCOM being formed. So when people think Hummer, they think oversized useless truck, whereas a Jeep is thought of as American Heritage.

Wonder if they are going to use the "7bar" grille, that jeep tried to sue over, again as a bigger slap in the face.

I agree with 54, GM made a mistake trying to turn the Hummer into a Suburban. Yeah, there was a trend that people with a lot of money were buying ones that were "luxurified", but the Hummer was known for being the ultimate off roader.

The H1 Hummer has plenty of history.

Gulf War and the current stuff going on now.

I love Wrangler, and did want one for a long period of time..back when they used Straight 6 engines. But now they get horrible gas mileage and really don't have much in the way of power. And are **** expensive.

All I care about in an off road vehicle is having something that is rugged enough to withstand a desert environment. Dependable enough that I can rely on it out in the middle of nowhere. Strong enough that it can haul me, my man, my dog and all of our crap and not break on me. Ugly enough that it's sexy in a Marlboro man kind of way. Oh and looks good covered in mud and dust.

I want Hummer to build a rubbermaid vehicle that can handle all of that. Leave the chrome back home.
