Considering the fuel efficiency of the Hummer, I would opt for this anyday specially if it has a diesel option.

The IVECO LMV is designed for military work: it has a 3litre direct injection common rail turbodiesel, permanent 4WD, and its armoured version sports a mine-proof V-shaped bottom: view review here

This can give HUMMER a run for its money.

The LMV-1 in its current guise - built by Iveco DV (Defence Vehicle) based out of the quaint little Italian town of Bolzano - is not exactly a machine that makes your heat skip a beat. Not unless you are in the middle of a battlezone with enemy gunfire targeting you as drive over a path stewn with landmines. Thats the sort of situation to which the LMV owes its existence. Its 6 odd ton weight is powered by an upgraded 145 kW F1C engine, from the Iveco daily LCV. I really dont see a market in Europe for a Euro-hummer of sorts. That kind of madness needs the open arm welcome of an american audience or middle east oil money. Not sure if Iveco \ Fiat will invest in a niche vehicle that will find no takers in Europe.
