For 1999 all Hummer models get a new traction control system and anti-lock brakes to make driving easier both on-road and off. The traction control system, called TorqTrac4 (or TT4), automatically engages when it senses a wheel slipping. The system uses an electronic sensor on each of the four wheels to determine when a wheel is spinning. The sensors transmit a signal to a unit that determines how to regulate brake pressure. If the wheel speed is greater than the vehicle's speed, the unit applies brakes to that wheel; this engages the traction control system and transfers torque to the wheels that have traction. If the unit senses the brake is locked, it engages the anti-lock brakes.

Other refinements include finer wires in the heated windshield to reduce reflections at night, a revised fuel pump mounting to reduce engine noise, a modified instrument panel with several switches that are now illuminated, and a redesigned and simplified wiring system. Last, but not least, the windshield washer reservoir now holds more fluid so that drivers can play in the mud longer.

It's dismal. The interior's mil-spec, not human-spec. But what else would you invade Ohio in?
