GM Takes Second Look at Hummer Bidders

Hummer
As GM attempts to off-load brands like Hummer and Saab, the entire process feels like the end of a horror movie when the monster keeps popping back to life.

Just as Hummer’s fate appeared sealed when the Chinese industrial machinery company Tengzhong couldn’t get the sale approved by the Chinese government, the Wall Street Journal reports that a flicker of hope remains for the SUV brand.

GM is apparently taking a second look at two previous suitors that made bids for Hummer before Tengzhong but were rejected as insufficient. The Journal did not say which companies made the offer, but it did confirm that GM turned both down sometime last year.

It remains likely that GM will simply have to wind down the brand as it did with Pontiac and Saturn, but Hummer remains a widely recognized — and for some, a fiercely beloved — brand.

Feels Great to hear the name of "Hummer" again. I love this brand very much. & feels happy by hearing that GM is taking a second look on this model.

Hummer H1
Hummer H2
Hummer H3

these all are the successful models of Hummer & still at the top in the automotive world.

The Hummer was the only brand in the United States whose entire model range lineup came with a low-range transfer case, relatively high-ground clearance, and off-road tires.

Hey Hummer is also my favorite I like the Hummer Racing. Hummer Racing was first created in 1993, Team Hummer has tallied one of the most impressive records in production-class racing, earning 11 class wins at the Baja 1000.

General Motors GM.UL has approached previous bidders for its Hummer unit after a deal to sell the brand to an obscure Chinese firm collapsed, a source with knowledge of the matter said on Friday.GM has reached out to the companies whose offers for the military-derived SUV line were turned down last year when the U.S. automaker agreed to sell Hummer to Sichuan Tengzhong Heavy Industrial Machinery, said the source, who declined to be identified because the discussions are private.
