1998 Hummer Model Year Changes.
|With major changes for '97 and '97.5 there were relatively few changes for 1998. Several changes were made towards quieter operation, differential gear ratios were changed so engine revs would be lower at highway speed, geared hubs were made quieter , the cooling fan and clutch were changed and an insulated top was added for Open Top Models. Although all these items help make the 1998 quieter, the difference over the 1997 model is not dramatic. Two new colors were added for 1998, Candy Apple Red, which replaced Gloss Red, proved very popular and Competition Yellow which replaced the harder to match Fly Yellow of 1997.|
