Ever since it was discontinued in 2010, the Hummer H1 has been eagerly anticipated among the off-road enthusiasts. The good news is that the new Hummer H1 has been on its way now to come back to the market as a 2019 model. However, it will be available in the Chinese market only, under the name ‘Humvee C-series’.
As we have already mentioned, although the fans have been waiting for so long to see the appearance of the new Hummer H1, this model will not be available in the US market and it will be produced by a new manufacturer. Don’t worry, it will still be owned by GM. However, when it comes to exterior, the 2019 Hummer H1 will mostly keep that traditional design of its predecessors to attract the old and faithful buyers, but also some new off-road lovers. The truck will remain boxy and robust, inspired by the older military models. You should not expect any revolutionary changes and improvements. It will rather keep that massive front fascia with its well-known gridded grille and large round fog lights. The new H1 should be standing on larger wheels and tires that will help it face the most challenging terrains and weather conditions. So, the H1 will represent an excellent choice for either your off-road adventure or crowded (Chinese) streets, the choice is yours. It will be available in three trim levels – Bravo, Charlie and Delta, so the equipment and features you get will depend on the trim you choose.
We must admit that there is a lack of information when it comes to 2019 Hummer H1 interior. However, we believe that this truck will abandon its simple and military-inspired cabin and improve the materials as well as technology inside. The higher trim levels are definitely expected to be more comfortable and get some more luxurious and sophisticated details. Safety systems and driver assist features should also be improved since this truck has been known for going through some rough terrains. All in all, some minor changes and improvements can be expected, but we hope for more information soon.
It has been said that the 2019 Hummer H1 will offer four engine choices under its hood. In fact, it will offer two of them, the first one coming in three output versions. The first engine choice will use the 6.5-liter V8 diesel. You will be able to choose among 190 horsepower and 385 pound-feet of torque, 205 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque and 250 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque. The other version that has been expected is GM’s LS3 V8 that should deliver 430 horsepower and 424 pound-feet of torque.
