2013 Hummer H1 | Review, Specs, Prices, Pictures. – Welcome to Autocarrelease.Com, we will provide the latest information about the Hummer H1. 2013 Hummer H1 is one brand new car from Hummer that was released in 2013. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2013 Hummer H1.
The Hummer H1 is a civilian off road vehicle based on the M998 Humvee, which was created by AM General. The vehicle was produced from 1992 through 2006, and was the first of what became the Hummer line. It was initially known only as the “Hummer”, however, in 1999 in a joint venture between General Motors and AM General, GM began marketing the Hummer H2, which was built on a heavily modified GMC 2500HD chassis. It was at this point that the original Hummer was given the H1 designation. For collectors, the most desirable model is the H1 Alpha, produced in the final model year of 2006. It had the most powerful engine and the best fuel mileage of the H1 vehicles. Overall, the H1 was a very limited production vehicle.
“Only in America.” Nowhere in the vehicular universe does that statement apply more than when in reference to the Hummer H1. Originally designed strictly for military use, this absolutely massive four wheel drive utility vehicle earned its 15 minutes of fame as a civilian conveyance when it became the ride of choice among Hollywood celebrities and professional athletes who thought it oh so chic to pilot the ultimate ruff and tuff image machine.
2013 Hummer H1 Price :
Price is projected to be around US$129,399 for the open top, and US$140,796 for the wagon.
2013 Hummer H1 Interior and Exterior:
The Hummer H1 has three common variants, a convertible like soft top, a four door hard top Sport Utility Truck and an Alpha Wagon body version. Other less known variants include a two door pickup truck, most commonly seen in the military sporting Anti Air turrets and other launchers, or used as troop and cargo transports, and a four door slantback, which shares the same body style of the Humvee employed by the U.S. Military. The convertible/soft top and the station wagon versions were the last ones available in the mass market. The two door and four door pickup versions are only available in fleet livery.
Hummer H1s are unique in the way they handle off road (citation needed), and in their interior arrangement. Passenger and highway comfort are sacrificed for maximum mobility compared to civilian SUVs, with features much more radical than the original Jeep (citation needed), though they do share a similarly cut simple grille opening. They are inherently very stable, thanks to their wide track. They can ford 30 inches (76 cm) of water and climb a 22 inch (56 cm) step. Their stock ground clearance of 16 inches (41 cm) is made possible by tucking driveline components inside a channel in the central space between the left and right seats. They have high approach/departure angles of 72/37.5 degrees. Most H1s are equipped with a Central Tire Inflation System (CTIS), which enables the driver to increase or decrease the tire air pressure at the push of a button, since lower tire pressures are more suited for off road, and higher tire pressures are desirable on road.
2013 Hummer H1 Performance :
The update program commenced in late 2002 with production launch slated to be fall of 2004. The engineering team chose the engine variant out of the GMT560 truck (the C4500) because it packaged better into the H1 engine bay; however, 23 engine component changes were required and the team had to do a 2.0 in (51 mm) body lift to accommodate the taller engine and its turbo housing (a prior 0.5 in (13 mm) lift had been done for MY96 to accommodate the turbo on the 6.5L engine). The GMT560 engine calibration was used with minimal modification, engine output was 300 hp (220 kW) and 520 lb·ft (705 N·m) of torque. Due to the Duramax engine being equipped with cooled exhaust gas recirculation and an internal engine oil cooler, the team had to deal with a 40 percent heat rejection increase to engine coolant. However, they were unable to increase the size of the cooling pack between the air lift brackets that protrude from the hood. This meant dramatically re engineering the fan system by putting the fan directly under the coolpack and driving it through a special gearbox directly off the crankshaft damper pulley.
Although most Hummers (pre H1 and H1 alike) are visually identical, the 1996-2005 versions are most similar beneath the macho bodywork. For ’96, a 6.5 liter diesel V8 replaced the former 6.2 liter engine and offered 170 horsepower to the 6.2′s 150. But more importantly, a turbocharged version of the 6.5 liter was available too, which furnished 195 hp and 430 pound-feet of torque. A 5.7 liter gas V8 was also available for 1996 and ’97, but it wasn’t a match for the heavy Hummer. Active safety was greatly increased for 1999 via the adoption of antilock brakes and traction control.
Five engine types and three automatic transmission types can be found in Hummer H1s. The common engine/transmission combinations are :
>. 6.2 L Detroit Diesel V8/GM TH400/3L80 3 speed
>. 6.5 L Detroit Diesel V8/GM 4L80-E 4 speed
>. 5.7 L Vortec 5700 gasoline V8 TBI/GM 4L80-E 4 speed
>. 6.5 L turbo Detroit Diesel V8/GM 4L80-E 4 speed
>. 6.6 L Duramax LLY turbo Diesel/Allison 1000 5 speed (model year 2006)
