Description

The Hummer H1, originally engineered for the U.S. Armed Forces, epitomizes the zenith of authentic off-road capability and ruggedness. Unlike vehicles molded by aesthetic trends or market demands, the H1 was forged in the crucible of utility and extreme performance needs. Its essence lies in its ability to conquer terrains and challenges unfathomable to ordinary vehicles, embodying the principle that form follows function in its purest sense. Capable of scaling 22 inch vertical rock ledges and fording 30 inches of water, the H1 demonstrates exceptional adaptability to a variety of obstacles. Its ability to traversing 40 percent side slopes and climbing 60 percent grades, stem from its engineered based requirement to keep up with tracked vehicles through the toughest terrain.  Central to the H1's formidable capabilities is its turbocharged 6.5-liter diesel V8. Developing 290 ft-lb and 170 horsepower, the Detroit Diesel was selected for its robustness, reliability, and ability to deliver substantial torque at low rpms, crucial for the H1's off-road and towing capabilities. While retaining its core military attributes, this civilian version of the H1 incorporates refinements and creature comforts, making it more accommodating for daily use without diluting its intrinsic off-road DNA. Finished in Green Metallic, with an additional bull bar, roof rack, and light bar, this 1997 Hummer Wagon (HMCS)externally looks much like its military counterpart. The interior, however, uses deeply cushioned Tan leather for upholstery and is equipped with all the creature comforts expected from a luxury off-roader. This blend of external ruggedness and interior luxury perfectly emphasizes the unique combination that the Hummer stood for.
