Version H1 was first constructed in 1992 as Hummer. Quite a big merit of an introduction of a civil version
Schwarzenegger, who bought 5 vehicles Hummer H1 after their introduction in market. Immortality of
Hummer H1 has been given especially because of war in the Gulf, where about twenty thousand of these vehicles
took part. Increasing interest of public forced company AM General for production of limited serie in
amount of one thousand pieces. Despite of high price, in Detroit in 1994 a first new version Hummer H1
was introduced. It had a liquid with chilled ignition eight-cylinder 6,5 by General Motor with output
which was increased of 12% from 127 kW to 145 kW and with a improved four stepped automatic gear box.
As a wish, in1995 there was put an ignition eight-cylinder 5,7 of an output of 142 kW.
Hummer H1 is a vehicle with self-supporting steel bodywork with two-placed cabine, wide undercarriage
and independent suspending wheels, all wheel ride and fork-shaped ignitron eight-cylinder 6.5. Pick-ups
Trooper/Cargo Carrier were the most spread in the U.S. army – either with open loading space or with a
sail covering eigh-placed bench. One of very popular personal version belonged especially Armament Carrier,
box and loading space is covered as a complex by a composite superstructure. Hummer H1 is powered by an
liquid chilled eight-cylindered turbodiesel of a capacity of 6,5 l with a direct injenction of fuel at
output of 145 kW at 3400/min and revolving moment 580 N. m achieved at 1800 revs/ min.
It breaks hills with a side lean of 36 degrees, rise of 54 degrees and driving in water in depth to 75
cm with no problems.
As some technical interests could be mentioned for example central ventilating system ensuring a balance
of air and outer pressure in all parts of a vehicle. Engine, gear box, rest overhang and tanks are connected
by a tube, which goes to an air filter, that ensures no water in part with powering system during driving
During the drive of vehicle, which has become an American legend, driver is helped by a several electronic
systems for example traction system as for example traction system TT4 (torqtrac 4) monitoring spinnig
of wheels and ensuring constant transmission of revolving moment on wheels at any conditions. It´s sufficient
to have only one wheel standing on solid base.
Next „goody“ is a central system CTIS (Central Tire Inflation System) of pumping and draining air to each
tire during the ride. After pressing a button is possible to reduce air in a tire, this can help (according
to the amount of pressure) to increase their liaison surface touching ground twice.
Runflat Tire System, is also available, it enables drive with one or more empty tires up to 50 km at a
speed of 48 km/h.
Contrary to a very simple interior of military version, at H1 version interior is not so single-purpose,
but it´s much more comfortable for everyday use. There is for example textile upholstery, electric control
of windows, air-condition or central locking.
