The Hummer H1, made by General Motors-owned Hummer, is a civilian version of the AM General HMMWV (Humvee). It was released in the 1990's and became popular due to its look and amazing off-road capabilities. Being based on a military vehicle, it was very tough and strong. It was originally called Hummer until Hummer made the Hummer H2
, then it became the H1.
In 2005, Hummer made the H1 Alpha, which gives the H1 a better engine and interior. The Alpha upgrade will soon be on all Hummer vehicles.
Sadly, most people that own Hummer H1s do not use them for their purpose: off-roading. Most use them for transport like SUVs such as the Ford Expedition. This is frivolous, as the Hummer H1 costs 120,000 USD because it excels in off-roading, not in space. For this purpose, one should buy the Hummer H2, Ford Expedition, Chevrolet Suburban, or Honda Odyssey Touring, or even the BMW 760Li.
He was doing some serious off-roading in his Hummer H1, totally destroying that punk in the Explorer.
That woman I talked to was hot, but dumb because she bought an H1 to go to and from work.
