It's getting tough for even the most ardent supporters of the Hummer brand to continue to keep hope alive. Reports the aficionados at HummerGuy.net: "While many of us were hoping for a last-minute miracle to save the Hummer brand, signs from Detroit are indicating that Hummer production will soon cease indefinitely."

It appears as if General Motors has resigned itself to winding the brand down and letting it die a slow, agonizing death. The automaker says that it's no longer considering offers for the brand and dedicated Hummer staff are reportedly be assigned to serve elsewhere.

Oh, and about that "Save Hummer" summit that's planned for April 11th near Chicago? GM, though it is aware of the rally, has no plans to send representation. That sound that you hear? That's just the tolling of Hummer's death knell. Thanks for the tip, Brian!

      RIP.

      Good Luck.

      But, American really need hummer?
        • 4 Years Ago
        The only Americans that need a Hummer are the divorced middle aged guys who need to overcompensate for a lack of "equipment".

        The brand really hasn't been relevant in a while. When I first got into the car business several years ago, we had a guy come into the Ford dealership I was at looking to trade his Hummer, for an F150 I believe. Seems that the HUMMER dealer down the street wouldn't trade with him or buy his Hummer because they had too many new ones they couldn't sell.

        Time to let go... time to let go.

      sounds to me that some of the people that hate hummer with a passion are people that probably can't afford one
        • 4 Years Ago
        For me, I could have bought a Hummer but really would I end up offroading enough to justify it? No. Also, one can easily pick one up used for around $35K and a lot cheaper if you looked during summer 2008 when gas was over $4/gallon.

        Many people don't buy them because they are completely unncessary and not good looking and you will be hated and reviled wherever you drive. Think about how many $40K+ cars BMW, Audi, Mercedes, Lexus sell. These are all people who don't WANT a Hummer not because they can't afford it but because there are much better options for day to day driving.

      In 30 years will the H3, H2, or H1 Hummer be a valuable collectors car?

      ...assuming we can still purchase prodigious quantities of petrol to power the damned things.

      Don't EVER say Edsel again...... This should have died a long time ago, in fact it should have never come to be....

      Watch in 20 years... revival of the once successful Hummer... A GMC Concept 'Hummer'...

      and if I can add... what a gross name....

        • 4 Years Ago
        STOP!

        I take offense at your statement. Edsel is a Regal sounding name!

        In the bush, Hummers are very popular among the women folk.

        • 4 Years Ago
        The name Edsel rocks.... Great, wonderful name.... !!! On my list of names for a child!!!

        I obviously am referring to the marketing blunders GM has shown over the past decade(s).... They even tried to make SAAB work for them.... it just became a watered down mess....

      Trying to save this FAILED experiment in supersizing your happy meal is like trying to make everyone wear bell bottoms again -
      thanks GOD it will never work!

      real enthusiasts should keep their models forever - they will get rare and hold value eventually and the aftermarket will pick up the parts.

      its about time the hummer died.
      • 4 Years Ago
      You can still buy a Tahoe. It just won't be so menacing looking.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Hummer would be better as a GMC variant, than a Chevy.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Chrysler should have bought them and merged the design with Dodge. They could have called the new brand Anger since that seems to be the emotion all Hummer and Dodge owners drive with.

        GM, you have representation here...

        Stop...Hummer time!

      • 4 Years Ago
      Wow, the title of this post is very hard to understand.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Should have just gone with "Hummer probably screwed"
        • 4 Years Ago
        I think it could use a couple more hyphens, personally.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I had to read that thing like 4 times.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Fork ready......

      Hummer has been dying a slow, agonizing death for years.

      If it was profitable, it would still be in business.

      It is not profitable because consumers see that it doesn't make sense to buy a Hummer.

      Wake up, Hummer lovers. Your [small] party is over.
