Battlefield 4 Humvee

Comments Off

The Battlefield 4 Humvee (or M1114 HMMWV), is a multipurpose transport vehicle used by the US faction in Battlefield 4 multiplayer. The Humvee — High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle — is a versatile and armored truck that can transport up to 4 soldiers in Battlefield 4 at the same time. The Hummvee is armed with a single .50 cal machine gun that can be operated by one soldier. The Battlefield 4 Humvee was first featured in the series in BF2, where it also was the main transport vehicle for the US side. The car has been in service since the mid 1980s, and is expected to continue its service until 2030. Over 300,000 M1114 HMMWV Humvees have been built to date. Compared to the Growler ITV, the Humvee is slower but much better armored. However, it’s less armored than the much larger MRAP transport vehicle.

“I have to confess, we checked the numbers a few times on that one,” said the VP of Research for Canadian Black Book about the HUMMER H2 retaining more value than any other vehicle.

Black Book is well known among dealers in the US and Canada as a leading source of vehicle values for dealer appraisals since much of their data comes from auction information and real-time sales.

The “Best Resale Value” award went to HUMMER at the opening of the Canadian International Auto Show where 19 vehicles were honored for their resale value. Toyota got the bulk of the awards across the different categories which included best retained value for luxury cars, full-size pickups, etc.

Representatives from Black Book explained that the vehicles in all the other categories retained 50 to 65 percent of their value after four years, and they were surprised to see the HUMMER H2 come in at a staggering 71..14 percent of its MSRP.

There is some anecdotal evidence that the high marks come as some vehicles are being sold overseas or otherwise exported to countries with higher demand – but in that there are still plenty of locals interested in HUMMER and that’s driving the wholesale/resale value up.

“Its value actually increased last year, so it’s bit of an anomaly.”

The HUMMER H3 also made the list – finishing right behind the Toyota FJ Cruiser in the Mid-Size SUV category.

Sadly, since the report is only done on 4-year resale values and the H2′s last year was 2010, this will be the last time that HUMMER’s resale values are measured up against the competition.  Though, it’d be interesting to see HUMMER’s 5-year numbers vs everyone else’s 4 years numbers last year.  I wouldn’t count on anyone going out of their way to research and publish something that puts HUMMER in a positive light, so we won’t hold our breath on that one.

THE military Humvee was designed, engineered and built by AM General, which started selling the civilian version, called the Hummer, in 1992. After the company formed a joint venture with General Motors in December 1999, that original Hummer got a new name, H1.

While never cheap, prices of the H1 have been creeping higher. The four-door wagon now starts at $113,824. Only about 1,000 are sold each year.

The H2, developed by G.M. largely from existing truck components, starts at $48,800 (including a destination charge of $735) and can run up to $54,000 with an air suspension, heated leather seats and a sunroof. That doesn’t count 40 other accessories available throough dealers.

The H2 is a Hummer without the rattles and rumbles, but a buyer must be willing to make trade-offs. It has six inches less of ground clearance. It cannot make the same steep ascents as H1. And it can ford just 20 inches of water, compared with 30 for H1. These will probably be acceptable compromises, given that G.M. expects only 5 to 10 percent of H2 owners to do extreme off-roading.

The H1 will remain in the Hummer lineup, and some aspiring Arnold Schwarzeneggers will accept no substitute. It still offers all the off-road capability the Army can ask for.

With the H2, G.M. is offering a gentler Hummer for S.U.V. buyers who want some military mystique. But while the H2 will be within reach of more people, its pricetag hardly makes it a Hummer for everyone.

Market research shows that many young men — reared on video games, action movies and the macho posturing of professional wrestling and extreme sports — aspire to own Hummers. G.M. is considering other, less expensive models, and has already announced an addition to the new line for 2004: the H2 SUT, a sport utility truck with a passenger compartment plus a short pickup bed that can be expanded, like the Chevrolet Avalanche’s, by lowering a panel at the back of the cabin.

DETROIT, Nov. 1— Detroit can’t seem to sell enough cars or trucks these days without piling on rebates and free financing. With one exception.

Three months into an experiment to bring a smaller and cheaper version of the militaristic Hummer vehicle to a broad audience, General Motors has struck a chord. Put aside the difficulty of selling a $50,000 sport utility vehicle in a bear market and stagnant economy, or of marketing an automobile that gets about 11 miles a gallon when there is renewed focus on oil consumption.

Dealers say they are selling as many of these vehicles as they can get. G.M.’s supply is only six days ahead of demand — automakers prefer 10 times that amount. And Hummer is the only Big Three brand selling largely without any national incentives.

Many buyers of this low-end Hummer, called the H2, sound like evangelists and speak of other modern sport utilities as the vehicle of soccer moms — tame family haulers little different from zoo-bound wildlife too long in captivity. To them, Hummer represents what Ford’s Bronco II or Jeep did before sport utilities overran the highways.

”You can’t believe the attention it gets,” said Robert Fishelson, 65, whose family runs a wholesale liquor company in Fond du Lac, Wis. Mr. Fishelson has outfitted his H2 with lights on top, a winch and his ham radio. ”It’s like I’m a movie star,” he added. ”I have young girls, teeny-boppers, yelling out their windows at me.”

Mr. Fishelson, who has owned 15 Corvettes at various points of his life, still says that the H2 is by far his most-noticed automobile.

Environmentalists are incensed that G.M. is building up a new brand that will probably be the industry’s most fuel-inefficient mass market vehicle line, producing higher emissions of smog-causing pollutants and greenhouse gases than do cars and many sport utility vehicles. Not to mention the annoyance to other drivers: the H2, at more than three tons, weighs a ton more than the Ford Explorer and twice what a Ford Taurus weighs and is one of the tallest and widest passenger vehicles on the road.

It is difficult to pinpoint the gas mileage of Hummers because both the original Hummer, a diesel, and the gasoline-fed H2 are so heavy that they do not fall under normal federal fuel economy regulations that govern cars, S.U.V.’s and most pickups. As a result, the Hummer’s fuel economy does not have to be reported to the government.

The Sierra Club is planning a campaign against the Hummer, along the lines of its effort against the huge Ford Excursion, which the environmental group dubbed the Valdez after the oil tanker that ran aground in Alaska. Ford recently discontinued the Excursion.

”We’re going to try to do to the Hummer what we did to the Valdez,” said Daniel Becker, the Sierra Club’s top energy expert. ”Kill it.”

But H2 buyers, asked whether gasoline consumption was any consideration, generally assume the question is whether they can afford to fill up the 32-gallon gas tank so often.

”If you can afford to buy an H2, if you get 10 miles to the gallon you’re not going to care,” said Bill Kramer, a 51-year-old computer programmer from Long Island whose H2 actually gets about 9 miles a gallon around town. ”If gas went up to $3 per gallon, then maybe.”

Mr. Kramer said his H2 ”looks like what an S.U.V. should be.”

”People who like to buy the Hummer like to stand out,” he added. ”I’ve had an Escalade, a Mercedes, a Jaguar. This Hummer H2 draws more looks and questions than any other vehicle I’ve owned.”

Trying to broaden the H2′s appeal, G.M. has begun customizing advertisements for different markets, seeking like-minded souls among readers of magazines from Road & Track to Vanity Fair. A recent pullout in The New Yorker included a cartoon depicting frightened cabbies shrinking from an H2 muscling its way down a Manhattan avenue.

H2 is often presented in G.M. ads as perfect for those who shop at Restoration Hardware but fancy themselves ”rugged individualists,” as the company’s executives put it.

Many ads suggest it as a fortress apart from the peopled world. In one TV spot, shot in Iceland and scored with trance-like techno music, a couple who seem to have stepped out of a Banana Republic catalog peacefully navigate hemorrhaging oceans, slate-colored terrain and khaki beaches. He wears a $4,000 watch; she gazes beatifically heavenward.

”Need,” the ad instructs, ”is a very subjective word.” Then the scene pulls back to depict a glistening blue planet.

The Hummer and the H2 are descended from the Humvee, the military transport used in the Persian Gulf war and still in use. G.M. has sold the Hummer for several years, at about $100,000. Through a national network of dealerships, G.M. plans to sell 100,000 Hummers within five years. In just three months 7,500 H2′s have been sold; among its biggest markets are Los Angeles, Miami and Texas. G.M. hopes to sell as many as 40,000 next year — nearly double the number of Porsches Americans bought last year.

Dr. Clotaire Rapaille, founder of the consulting firm Archetype Discoveries, on which the Big Three rely for information about their customers, said Hummer was an S.U.V. unfettered from the blandness that had overtaken the category. He interviewed potential buyers on behalf of G.M. and found a sentiment among buyers that ”the S.U.V. is the new minivan.”

With the Hummer, Dr. Rapaille said: ”People told me, ‘I can protect my family. If someone bumps into me, they’re dead.’ People love this feeling.” One female H2 buyer told him: ”I have three kids in the car with me and no one is going to look at me as a soccer mom.”

A male customer in the construction business said he needed the H2′s off-road capability for work, but Dr. Rapaille called that explanation an alibi.

”He could have had a Jeep or another S.U.V., but the reality is you want to show strength,” he said, adding that after the Sept. 11 attacks ”we feel we are at war and people feel the need to be protected.”

”It’s like putting on a Superman outfit,” said Rick Schmidt, founder of the Detroit-based I.H.O.G., the International Hummer Owners Group. Mr. Schmidt, 49, owns an original Hummer and is thinking about trading in his Jeep Grand Cherokee for an H2.

”You want something you know can respond to the way you feel when you want to get someplace, even if it’s up a mountainside,” he said. Mr. Schmidt has climbed Kilimanjaro.

For its part, G.M. is facing slim profits, stiff overseas competition and industry sales beginning to slump. The company says that it thinks that it may have the beginnings of a brand that people will buy on its own merits and plans to turn Hummer into a postmodern version of Jeep. A pickup H2 is scheduled for next year and a smaller, cheaper Hummer S.U.V. is being considered for 2005. Dealers will be required to build new showrooms that resemble military barracks with plenty of brushed steel and exposed bolts inside. A prototype in Milwaukee, Bergstrom Hummer, sports a 35-foot-high ”H” out front.

”The people that buy this product, they’re daring,” said Michael DiGiovanni, Hummer’s general manager, who divides customers into those who ”want to do off-roading in Moab and then do Italian for dinner” and those who are daring in more mundane ways but want a car to match their persona. John Bruno Jr., sales manager at Hummer of Manhattan, called it ”an expression of a personality.”

”There is no typical Hummer buyer,” he said. ”I am seeing a lot of the style leaders. It’s a sophisticated vehicle.”
