Jeeps and Hummers are 2 totally different things. Like apples and oranges. I dont see why people get so caught up in always comparing the two.
The Jeep is a very durable off-road machine, not built for comfort or highway driving. It sits high and boxy, does'nt have great pickup, noisy, and at times leaky and squeeky. You can personalize a Jeep thousands of different ways with thousands of different parts, top down, top up, sunrider, doors on, off, half etc.... You belong to a group that waves (most times) and would help a fellow Jeeper no matter what.
It is also the most fun youll ever have on (or off) the road hands down!
Hummer 2 + 3 dont really have any of those things! They are expensive SUV's that are somewhat comfortable to take on road trips and if you try to do serious climbing in one, you'll end up stuck or with a broken axle which has happened TWICE to a friend of mine in Moab (h3).
Im pretty sure you have nothing to worry about ( and why would you anyway??)

9th paragraph down
2011 Wrangler changes announced, ready for orders | Allpar Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep News
|06-17-2010 10:14 AM|
Again, this is Chrysler thinking.....
|06-17-2010 10:13 AM|
If you don't like the way a HUMMER looks--don't buy one
If you think the JK "unlimited" looks like a HUMMER, just buy one and MODIT
If your social comfort is more important to you than you and your families comfort, you should start drinking --a lot !!

I like the original hummer, but the cost to own and repair was just outrageous. It was never meant for typical people to own and drive. Then came the H2, I didn't like that. then the h3, and that thing is just downright ugly.
IMO, they did to the hummer what Chrysler is doing to the Jeep, they are taming it, making it more of a family vehicle. If it makes them money, then they will keep it up. If it doesn't then they will change it. If it's a complete loss, they will can the Jeep for some time. If they get real bad off, they'll start selling off names.
don't think I'm wrong, when the "big 3" were having their financial woes, guess who was looking at them very closely....China.
yeah, there is a slim possibility that at some future point China could own the Jeep name and be making them. don't believe it, do some research.
I'm not saying it will happen, but it is one possibility. I know for a fact that they were talking to China. again do some Googling.

|toshpate||well, they are making 2 wd wranglers again right? stupid stupid stupid.........pointless at best|
|06-17-2010 10:05 AM|
People bought Hummers for their social impact (neg or pos)... Almost a status symbol...
People buy Jeeps for different reasons...
|06-17-2010 10:04 AM|
|jayc||I'm not saying they're going to sell the name. My fear lies with the idea that when people can no longer get a hummer they'll go to the next best thing....A jeep. Then we'll be infested with chromed out hummer wanna bes with lambo doors, matching hard tops, chrome shackles ect. I like where you head is inferno girl, more people buy them for whatever reason then inturn jeeps are pumped out harder and faster with an excess for parts and or cheaper used jeeps expanding our comunity. But at what cost?|
|06-17-2010 10:01 AM|
|AfterMath||I think Hummer drivers may look towards Range Rovers and the like.|
|06-17-2010 09:57 AM|
|InfernoGirl||Maggies are cool! Several friends drive them, and love them....|
|06-17-2010 09:54 AM|
I'd say no, it will never happen. even if they did "focus on their core money makers" and stopped making Jeeps, at some point they would start back up. I doubt they would ever sell the Jeep name.
That said, I work with several automotive people who've worked for Chrysler, some are Engineers and some are whatever. I call them BS artist.
Anyway, after being around these people, I've come to realize that logic doesn't apply. so what makes sense to you and me is totally opposite to them. Kinda like the bizarro world or something. Think I'm wrong? Just take a look at the Dodge Magnum, what idiot dreamed this thing up? A hemi powered station wagon? when gas prices were going up? the commercial shows some guy loading stuff in the back like it's a truck and then revving the engine.
and they thought that would sell.
I heard that the H3 was nothing more than an Avalanche with a different body. Maybe it was the h2, Maybe it's not true at all, irrelevant anyway.
I like the idea of a four door Jeep. I hate the stock four door Jeep though. When I heard they were coming out with it I was ready to trade mine in. then I saw it and never even test drove it. they've got some cool aftermarket stuff to make it look good but damn, you spend that much money for one, than dump several thousand more into it to make it look.......manly.
I figure I'll wait a few years, get one used and fix it up the way I want it.
