You got so many things wrong it's not even funny. Get your facts right please. On the flip side your video is still good and gotta like your energy.

  • in the military the HMMWV is pronouced Hum-Vee

  • The first generation Hummer was the exact same under the hood as the military variants. Crappy electronics and a gutless 6.2 or 6.5 engine, depending if it was updated.

  • Those idiots don't see supper car's fuel consumption which is worse than any hummer, they just see it's big and they are afraid of big

    Marwan MohseenMarwan MohseenСарын өмнө
    • @Thicc Boy for me most of super cars are useless and stupid, but i'm not complaining about supercars, because they have their fans and there are people who like them, it's also true for Hummer, maybe you and many other people don't like it, but there are also people who love it. My point here is that he said in the video: people were against Hummer and they were burning and destroying them because it has bad fuel efficiency and it's bad for environment, but i think it is just stupid, there are many cars that are much worse than Hummer, and Hummer could improve it and get better as we saw in 2008 and 2009 H2 they changed the engine and gearbox and it was much better than previous versions

      Marwan MohseenMarwan MohseenСарын өмнө
    • @Marwan Mohseen Ok,ok, your talking about environmental points so i`m not going to debate you on which one is more environmentally friendly because, you and i can agree on that both vehicles have horrible fuel efficiency. Yes? So what i meant in my first comment, third sentence was (and i should have been more specific), that not all supercars have horrible fuel efficiency, some do some don`t but, stating that supercars as a whole consume more fuel as any hummer, is simply not true. You catch my drift?

      Thicc BoyThicc BoyСарын өмнө
    • @Thicc Boy let me ask you some questions, which one is more practical a hummer or a Bugatti Veyron? Which one is consume more fuel? Which one produce more carbon dioxide? I'm talking about environmental points.

      Marwan MohseenMarwan MohseenСарын өмнө
    • Bro, are you actually comparing a "supercar" to the Hummer? The Hummer was engineered and built for combat it was never intended for civilians use. Also you fail to realise that Weight, Aerodynamics, Drivetrain Power Loss, Rolling on and so forth ALL play a roll in fuel consumption.

I had to to and from Madera California multiple times for doctor's visits when this machine was en vogue, and these high-profile things seemed ubiquitous to my 14-year-old self. But I like the fact that Arnold converted one of these to use hydrogen fuel cells.
