We are thrilled to see new 2019 Hummer H1 and according to all we saw on photos and specifications, we should be thrill with all this heavy load off-road truck. Unfortunately, do not be so happy, it will be offered for Chinese buyers only, while we must wait for some other opportunity to buy it in the US.
2019 Hummer H1 is firstly made for rough terrains, so the truck is very highly positioned with large tires, so the cabin is protected from mood and dust, but handling and controlling of the truck should be easy. The truck is flat and small, and its flat roof and trunk door make the squared shape of the truck. The front end is also rough, with recognizable gridded grille and rods in front of it as a protection. The car also has rough skid plates on the sides and short trunk covered with fabric.
The cabin is, as the opposite of the expectations, very roomy and spacious and much different from the sporty rough off-road trucks cabins we know. Not only that it has leathered seats and dashboard, with space for resting in front row and cups and additions in the rear row, but it also has great new infotainment system that is not usual on sporty vehicles. At first glance, the cabin is much luxury that is seen by now in this class.
The engine for the large truck as 2019 Hummer H1 is must be as strong as well driven and controlled since it is mostly prepared for off-road driving. The base model is 6.5-liter V8 but it comes in three versions, depending on the strength and torque it produces. First options have 190 horsepower and 385 pound-feet of torque, the second one 205 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque, while the strongest is the version with LS3 V8 version that is made in GM and produces 430 horsepower and 424 pound-feet of torque. Unfortunately, we are not sure which transmission will manufacturer offers as the best combination with those versions.
2019 Hummer H1 Release Date and Price
We are sure that Chinese buyers will be satisfied with 2019 Hummer H1 since it has a little different offer and options than they used to see on their vehicles. However, the price is much higher than for other trucks, since $150,000 is not usually the price that we pay for off-road vehicles. However, the price comes along with the strength and size, so buyers should not be surprised it. It is hard to define which cars are competitors to this vehicle, but let’s say that Lincoln Navigator, Land Rover Range Rover, Cadillac Escalade, Land Rover Discovery, and Mercedes-Benz G-Class should be on that list.
