Anyways, a chinese-made Hummer would be really odd, don't you think?

I always wanted to see a production (bio)diesel-electric hybrid built on the hummer design. A couple of engineering universities have done it, but not a major manufacturer.

Good riddance. The Hummer was like raising the middle finger to the Mother Goddess every time the engine was started.

I always have an urge to stab the tires with a knife, but then i remember they have that wonderful center hub tire pressure management system capable of keeping the tires inflated even with a 1" hole in them. DAMMMM

Seems like it would still suck resources - I could be wrong! I've always thought about that, too - if you could make such a "powerful" vehicle more efficiently and resourcefully... There's a lot of promise there!

Why odd? I think when it comes to their products the quality isn't so bad anymore. So if ever it will be good but not that great of course.

I've read an article on this so just wanna share it with you guys, hope it'll help. Thanks.


With the increasing fuel-efficiency of light-weight crossover SUVís, Hummer is having a very difficult time competing. In fact, last month GM sold fewer than 300 Hummers. So while this image looks pretty cool, think of it this way: Hummer is literally going down. Quite unfortunate, but the picture sums it up. Nose dive.
for more please see here ===> GOODBYE HUMMER
