The Hummer H1 Alpha is a vehicle based on the M998 Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled (HMMWV), popularly known as the which was created by AM General. The was produced from 1992 2006.


Originally in the civilian market in 1992, the H1 owes its birth to the popularity of from Operation Desert and the enthusiastic campaign from Arnold Schwarzenegger, who personally several variants of Hummer GM announced that 2006 be the last model year for the H1 with production winding in June 2006, due to a new emission for Diesel engine vehicles take effect in 2007.

No of the Hummer H1 ever produced meet these new standards. AM currently has orders for an excess of new HMMWVs to be produced between for the United States Military. AM also will continue to the H1, just not the Alpha.

These will be sold through sales. The next H1 will bear a refined version of the 6.5L Turbo Diesel but that has not been confirmed. the H1#8217;s through fleet will allow the AM General to not be to the new emission rules and regulations.

AM General has sufficient fleet to produce 600-800 units per right now. The Hummer H1 every single government test it had ran. Until a filter was placed within the system reducing harmful by 63%.

The EPA tried desperately to the H1 from being released, but Motors insisted that diesel-powered vehicle to go into GM and the Environmental Protection Agency to the United States Supreme The pollution from the H1 was so severe it was 25 times more polluting the most pollutive automobile it, the Chevrolet Impala.


The H1 has three common variants: a soft top, a four-door top pickup truck and a Wagon version. Other less variants includes a two-door truck and a four-door slant At this time, the convertible/soft top and the wagon versions are the only available in the mass market.

The two and four door pickup are only available in fleet

Currently, five engine and three automatic transmission can be found in Hummer H1s. The engine/transmission combinations are:

6.2 L Diesel V8/GM TH400/3L80

6.5 L Detroit Diesel V8/GM 4-speed

5.7 L Vortec 5700 V8 TBI/GM 4L80-E 4-speed

6.5 L Detroit Diesel V8/GM 4-speed

6.6 L Duramax LLY Turbo 1000 5-speed (model 2006)

The Hummer H1 shares common driveline parts its HMMWV brethren.

Items brakes, differentials, frame and body panels (hood, and quarter panels) are identical the HMMWV and the Hummer H1. All Hummer H1 s and come off the same first assembly line, and then are midway to either become a HMMWV or a civilian H1.

Hummer H1s are in the way they handle off road. are inherently very stable, to their wide stance. also can ford 30 inches (76 cm) of climb a 22-inch (56 cm) step, a stock ground clearance of 16 (41 cm) (thanks to its design of tucking components inside a channel, subsequently intrudes into the space of the vehicle), have angles of 72/37.5 degrees and H1s are equipped with Central Inflation System (CTIS), enables the driver to increase or the tire air pressure at will.

Hummer H1s have many features. They use inboard They have geared allowing the drivetrain#8217;s half to be up high for greater clearance. The is up high, sloping back the engine. Rather than simple runflat tires, or rubber inserts are an optional for runflat ability.

An extensively reengineered H1 powered by Duramax Diesel and 5-speed transmission. The old version of the HUMMER H1 the 6.5L Optimizer turbo-diesel was struggling to leave the dealer In 2002, the CEO of AM General (Jim took the idea of re-powering the H1 to GM Executives including Bob Lutz and the GM Vehicle committee.

GM soon the use of their Duramax and Allison for the H1 truck. This would the continuation of the H1 as the grand-daddy of the HUMMER and it would allow AM General to the truck a much needed of updating in terms of power, refinement and the ability to meet Heavy Duty EPA Emissions

The update program commenced in 2002 with production slated to be fall of 2004. The team quickly chose the variant out of the GMT560 truck C4500 Duramax) because it better into the H1 engine None the less, 23 engine changes were required and the had to do a 2.5 inch body lift to the taller Duramax engine and turbo-housing.

The GMT560 engine was used with little to give 300Hp and 520 Ft/Lbs of Because the Duramax engine has EGR and an internal engine oil cooler, the had to deal with a big 40% heat increase to engine coolant but unable to increase the size of the pack between the air-lift that protrude from the

This meant dramatically the fan system, putting the fan directly the coolpack and driving it through a new gearbox, directly off the crankshaft pulley. Several other system modifications were to assist with cold-starting minus 30 Fahrenheit.

Other major modifications the use of s special high-strength steel in the frame, a new more powerful gear, revised quieter differentials, the re-design of the geared to use better quieter helical a new induction, exhaust and electrical system and some re-engineering of the supply and filtration system.

the much higher torque of the combined with a lower ratio (about 44.5 to 1 in low made the truck an awesome The Duramax delivers peak low down in the rev range and the team had to calibrate in torque management to certain driveline parts. new torque profile coupled centralized tire inflation and AM new interior resulted in the complete of everything except the carry-over made of aluminum beams and

The program was cancelled after because GM made a decision to its technical and financial support to model year engineering.
