We all know Hummer is coming back, but not at all how we once knew it. GMC will, at some point this year, debut an all electric pickup (and SUV) with the Hummer name. But if the Hummer H1 was still around, what would it look like today? Former Lamborghini designer Samir Sadikhov, who also went on to design the mighty Rezvani Tank, has released his interpretation of a modern Hummer H1, and it looks fantastic. Remember, he has no affiliation with GM and just did this to see what it would turn out like.
The design, revealed in an instagram post, is more of an evolution of the original Hummer than anything else. Overall, the shape is more rounded and softer than before. The slanted rear window of the H1 is carried through, but is far more pronounced here. Even the rear roofline slopes slightly as it meets the bed, giving it a far less blocky look.
If you stand back a bit, you can really make out some Rezvani Tank design cues.
As for the details, the seven-slot grille and recessed windows remain on the redesign. More modern touches are seen on the lighting and side mirrors. The lights are up to date LED units that look very slick, but keep the same overall look as before. The side mirrors have been replaced by concept car spec cameras. Another great feature and design is the four-piece glass roof.
Sadikhov hasn’t revealed much about his modern Hummer H1 design, like powertrain details, but did reveal the car would have four wheel steering in one image, pictured above. This could probably help off-road maneuverability, but if we’re honest, most original Hummer H1 owners didn’t leave the pavement. This could come in handy when celebrities are navigating city streets in their big rigs.
This Hummer H1 redesign is about what one would expect if Hummer never died, and they still made the H1 today. With this design, Hummer has made a bit of a rebound in recent years. We have the reimagined, upgraded original H1 from Mil-Spec, this design, and a new electric Hummer from GMC. Looks like Hummer isn’t so dead anymore.
