    Humvee is a trademark for a durable wide-bodied military vehicle with four-wheel drive that was developed by American Motors in 1983 to replace the Jeep.


    The name Humvee is a rough military acronym that came out of the 1991 Gulf War.


    It means high-mobility multipurpose wheeled vehicle.


    Substantially larger than the Jeep, the Humvee was able to replace several other vehicles, as well.


    Since 2000, General Motors has been selling civilian versions of the vehicle.


    The M998 High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV or Hum-Vee) vehicle was sold to the public under the brand name “Hummer”. READ MORE

    In 1985 AM General began supplying the military with a High-Mobility Multi-purpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV). As with all things military, HMMWV quickly acquired a shorter nickname--the Humvee. When AM General created a civilian version of the HMMWV in 1992, it was given the name Hummer.
