Look familiar? It’s the Wrangler’s ugly cousin.Today, the media embargo on the new Hummer HX has been lifted, and we can all look at the pile of crap that GM has come up with. Basically take the square stylings that are on every GM vehicle and mix in the [Jeep Hurricane concept](http://seriouswheels.com/cars/top-2005-Jeep-Hurricane-Concept.htm “Jeep Hurricane concept”) and you get the Hummer HX. It’s obvious how much GM lacks in creativity simply by looking at the name. HX? Look a little close to JK? TJ? YJ? CJ?
Of course, a lot of this can be attributed to the fact that at one time Jeep and Hummer were siblings of American Motors.
So yes, the Jeep Wrangler is related to the [Pacer](http://www.channel4.com/4car/media/features/2005/crap-cars/03-large/1975-amc-pacer.jpg “AMC Pacer”) in some bastardized way.
It’s even got the seven slot grille.The new Hummer HX stays true to the original seven slot grille that is on every Jeep and Hummer vehicle. Yet, one more thing that these kissing cousins share with each other.
A lot of Hummer fans have seen how closely it is designed to the Jeep. If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, GM is really a fan of the whole of Jeep’s lineup.
Hopefully this added competition to the Wrangler, and the rest of the Jeeps will bring about better vehicles overall from Jeep.
But remember, this Hummer HX is just a concept. A thought, or a possibility. Not an actuality. It will be interesting to follow along as this saga progresses.
