HUMMER has a dilemma – what will the next generation Hummer H1/2/3 look like? It would be insanity to change the iconic look of the Hummer range, but at the same time, something needs to be updated to signify a new model.
Thankfully GM is well aware of this problem and plans to show off a Hummer concept at next year’s North American International Auto Show. Dubbed the HUMMER HX concept, it reflects the future design of off-road vehicles according to GM.
Expected to run on E85 Biofuel, the Hummer HX offers a similar deal to the Jeep Wrangler with its open-air driving experience. The HX has a pair of removable roof panels above the driver and front passenger and a modular, removable rear roof assembly enabling a quick conversion from closed vehicle to open vehicle SUT.
In the past 12 months rumours have indicated GM is considering an even smaller Hummer – a H4 – to take on the likes of Jeep’s Wrangler. The HX concept seems to be the perfect candidate.
The question still remains though, what is the ultimate aim of the Hummer brand? How can a brand that has created a timeless shape be updated? More importantly, will Hummer ever expand into other types of cars?
