Even if you're just beginning to consider the Hummer H1,
you've already made a conscious decision to leave the regular
automotive market behind. Formerly employed by the US military,
the H1 is easily the premiere off-roading machine out there.
The 2004 Hummer H1 is literally in a class by itself. Though
generally termed a full-size sport-utility vehicle, it is
actually a Class 3 truck. This means that it has a gross
vehicle rating of more than 10,000 pounds and does not have
to meet many of guidelines that other SUVs have to. So you
see, it does more than just look unique.
The 2004 Hummer H1 is offered in one base trim.
The 2004 Hummer H1 is presented as a four-door open top
or a four-door wagon. Though their primary purpose is heavy-duty
trailblazing, they are also surprisingly well appointed.
Plus, there are plenty of dealer-installed accessories available
Inside, the Hummer H1 has a nice array of features. Air
conditioning with an auxiliary rear heater, a Monsoon AM/FM/cassette
player with in-dash 6-disc CD changer, an outside-temperature
indicator and a heated windshield are all standard.
The 2004 Hummer H1 is instantly recognizable. It has a massive
sixteen inches of ground clearance and an imposing design.
The H1's short overhangs give it dramatic approach and departure
angles of 72 degrees and 37.5 degrees, respectively. 17-inch
aluminum wheels shod with 37-inch tires are also standard.
There is no questioning this vehicle's performance. It can
climb up steep angles that other SUVs wouldn't dare touch,
and it has no trouble crossing thirty-inch deep rivers.
The Hummer H1's engine is a 6.5-liter turbodiesel V8 with
205 horsepower at 3400 rpm and 440 lb-ft of torque at 1800
rpm. 4-speed electronic automatic transmission is standard.
The 2004 Hummer H1 is a four-wheel drive model that employs
TorqTrac 4 technology. The system automatically reduces
tire spin on severe terrain or slippery surfaces by applying
the brake to the spinning wheel. This allows the differential
to redistribute torque to those wheels with traction.
That's not it: there's also a Central Tire Inflation System
and a Runflat Tire System, which allows you to drive for
twenty miles on a flat. An optional Off-Road Adventure Package
gives the Hummer H1 front and rear Eaton ELocker locking
differential, plus other equipment.
Safety and Security
These models are very safe by the sheer ruggedness of their
construction. In addition to this and the tire-inflation
systems, the H1 also has antilock brakes and an auxiliary
