“Instant torque!”…”Sealed drivetrain for water crossings!”…”No more MPG worries!”…”1,000 HP!!!…and the list of silly comments goes on about the announcement that the HUMMER is returning.
The HUMMER isn’t returning!!! GM is going to rebadge a GMC EV truck and hoar out the HUMMER image!!!
I have written about my take on an electric Jeeps previously, and you can link to that
I find it laughable how many
believe first in global warming, and secondly that electric vehicles could have any impact on the fallacy of global warming!!! “sheeple”
Prager University has produced the most succinct explanation of why electric vehicles are NOT “Green”.
IF electric vehicles were ultimately MORE efficient AND better for water crossings and instant torque, why didn’t HUMMER electrify their line up years ago and keep the brand alive?!?!?
While listening to the latest,
always great, podcast this morning, Tammy, Tony and Josh discussed the announcement of the Jeep Talk Show . They made a 2020 Jeep Renegade Plug-in Electric Hybrid (PHEV) GREAT point about the enormously well-documented NEGATIVE impact that lithium mining has on the environment.
WIRED Magazine UK did a great article on the negative impact of lithium mining this past August,

While I am not a huge fan of custom wheels for looks, I like the
Mammoth General Matte Black Wheel!
It gives the Jeep a little HMMWV look!
A more functional similarity is the placement of the snorkel, on the right-hand side.
What other Jeep / HMMWV similarities are there?
Who is going to the
next week? Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association (SEMA) show
What new products could they come up with for the Jeep?
I am looking forward to what
will have for the JL. American Expedition Vehicles (AEV)
I will be at the
, right after SEMA to get an up close look at the JL products. AEV Open House
With the recent announcement that
, I got to thinking of what could have been, had American Motors Corporation (AMC) not sold to Renualt, forcing AM General is for sale to be separated from Jeep? AM General
What if in
remained a wholly-owned subsidiary of AMC? Would we all be driving a version of the AM General ? Land Runner
Would we still have our solid-axle suspensions? What unimaginable alter-verse would we be living in?
Would we ultimately be driving what was known as the
There’s the old saying…”They don’t make em’ like they used to…” when it comes to many things as mentioned in the
post. Jeep Commercials
make HMMWV/HUMMER commercials anymore! DON’T
