HUMMER History.

1995 Hummer Model Year Changes.

1995 was the first year that a Hummer was offered from the factory with a gas engine. The gas engine is significantly quieter than the diesel and offered a reliable addition to the Hummer line. The disadvantages to the gas engine included lower fuel economy and decreased fording ability. 1995 was the highest production model year for the H1 with approximately 1,432 built, 553 or about 39% of which were gas models.

Significant changes for 1995.
  • 5.7L Gas Engine available for first time. Quieter than Diesel but fuel economy suffers.
  • Tachometer offered as standard on Gas Engine models and as an option on Diesels.
  • Moved "B" bar in roof back. Provides more front headroom.
  • Added Hood lock with interior release.
  • Added bracing and mounting points for Aux seat option. Bracing also on very few very late model '94s.
  • Dual rear "ambulance " doors replace tailgate. Tailgate as on '94s still available, but only 25 '95s are built with the $205 optional tailgate.
  • New Ball joints. You will see this often. Many gradual improvements through the years.
  • Added heat shields. Almost all early Heat shields cracked and rattled at some point. Gradual improvements eventually eliminated this problem.
  • New Brake Proportioning Valve.
  • New wider arm rests.
  • New Heavier Center Link.
  • New control arms.
  • New Tie Rods.
  • New Pitman and Idler arms. You will also see many changes here through the years. Still a weak link for a few more years.
  • New Battery Vendor.
  • New fuel tank vent on Gas models. Important upgrade. Early Gas model tanks swelled and rubbed on driveshaft before new vents installed.
  • New Standard GVW Springs.
  • New Vanity mirror sunvisor.
  • Factory CD Changer available for first time.
  • Rear Defrost available on Hard Top and 2-Passenger models.
  • Aluminum Rocker Panel Protection. Lighter and do not rust when scratched but not as strong as steel. Steel "rockers" still available as factory option through '95.
  • Aux. A/C no longer separate option, comes standard with A/C package.
  • New Color "Bright White".
  • New Color "Silver Metallic".
Valuable upgrades to look for in a '95.
  • '97.5 Style HVAC system. About a $4,500 to $5,000 upgrade. Much improved Heating and cooling and new unit is more easily repaired than earlier sealed units. Make sure heater core is not leaking on non-upgraded HVACs. Expensive upgrade to '97.5 specs is factory recommended solution to this problem.
  • Gas Tank vent update on Gas models. If not done Tank can swell and rub driveshaft.
  • Accelerator pedal rod update. Early rods corroded.
  • Although steering components were upgraded in '95, later ball joints and the factory "Problem Solver" Idler and Pitman arms are much more durable than those on a '95.
  • Small rubber plug in Transfercase sometimes shrank due to heat and fell out, slowly draining Transfercase. Later designs solved this problem. Some owners tapped the hole and replaced the rubber plug with a metal one.
  • Some owners have added the '97 style scupper valves and air intake scoops to aid in ventilation and to improve air flow and defrosting. Windshield frosting is a common problem before heated windshields and enhanced ventilation became available in '97. You may also find some earlier Hummers that have had the heated windshields added which is a costly upgrade.
  • Shifter boot would become hot and tear allowing hot air from under the vehicle to enter the cabin. The '97 style shifter boot cover helps this problem.
