Hummers were a brand of trucks and SUVs popular in the 90s and early 00s made by AM General and GM. They were originally designed under contract with the United States military. AM General decided to market the Hummer to the civilian market.

Due to the high fuel costs, SUV demand dropped sharply and with it, the Hummer. When GM was dealing with the economic crisis in the 00s, part of their restructuring plan was to get rid of the vehicle. Sales attempts collapsed though and 2010, the last Hummer was produced.
