Hummer Aftermarket Grilles

Mention the name Hummer and you'll hear cheers from off-roaders and jeers from environmentalists, which just goes to show that you can't please everyone. With trucks and SUVs that deliver disappointing fuel economy yet can climb just about anything, valid points can be found on each side of the aisle. Born from a military background, it's not surprising to discover that go-anywhere attitude backing up the Hummer Grilles brand. This mindset was best exemplified by the late Hummer H1; production has ceased, so if you want to see one you'll need to contact owners such as California's Governor Schwarzenegger.

Realizing that not everyone would want the civilian equivalent of a Humvee, the company added the Hummer H2, available as an SUV and as a pickup dubbed the H2 SUT (sport utility truck). Still plenty capable, the H2 shares its platform with the Chevrolet Silverado, whereas the most recent product to debut, the Hummer H3 and H3T (the pickup truck version), is based on the Chevrolet Colorado/GMC Canyon.

Hummer was created as a civilian version of the Humvee (HMMWV, High Mobility Multi-Purpose Wheeled Vehicle), a military vehicle developed by AM General during the 1980s. The first model, simply called the Hummer, was launched by AM General in 1992, seven years before General Motors took ownership of the company. After that change, the Hummer was renamed the Hummer H1 and GM worked on expanding the brand's lineup and broadening exposure to the mainstream market.

The results of those efforts could be seen in the Hummer H2, a rugged off-roading SUV that offered attitude and sheer mass not found in many competing vehicles. A pickup version of that utility vehicle, dubbed the Hummer H2 SUT, followed. By 2006, the Hummer H1 had reached the end of its line, but the resulting void made room for the Chevy Colorado-based Hummer H3, available with a five-cylinder engine in standard guise or as the V8-powered Hummer H3 Alpha. A pickup version, the Hummer H3T, is also available, as is the more luxurious Hummer H3x.
