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.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
