You can always count on Bob Lutz to provide a wealth of future product tidbits at his press conferences. Spy shots posted on LLN confirm Bob's comments about new Hummer models. This H3 captured is both longer than a standard H3 and is camouflaged in the rear. A close inspection reveals the tent work that is hiding the back of the truck sags aft of the B-pillar, indicating without a doubt there's a bed back there.

This is obviously the SUT version of the H3, but we're still looking for the H3T concept to make it to production as a dedicated truck, one we'd gladly choose over a Chevy Colorado or GMC Canyon. Lutz did hint that this was a possibility, so we're keeping our fingers crossed.

      Some guy said it best in C&D once...If this thing offers 'Luxury' does that make it a SLUT?

      Crew cab actually. I wonder if the bed will actually be separate, it looks a bit long for the midgate system.

      I would much rather just get a Canyon crew cab, avoiding looking like a poser and pissing off fringe environmentalists.


      The big problem is that the H3/Canyon drivetrains suck compared to the Nissan Xterra and Frontier.

      Actually this is how the H3 was supposed to start out.

      This is cool, so long as they make a 2-door version, and make it EXTREMELY different from canyon/colorado

      If they'll buy it, build it.

      It is time for the 6L50 transmission to go with the bigger 3.7 I5 engine.

      The military HUMVEE is built in Mishawaka, Indiana.
      The Hummer H1, the civilian version of the HUMVEE, is no longer in production.
      The Hummer H2, more civilianized, experenced slowed production some months ago and now rumors are hot and heavy among the UAW Local 5 members, that production numbers will not only be cut again, close to 100 workers will be laid off.
      The Hummer H3, the one in this blog, is of course made elsewhere.
      How do I know this news? I live in Mishawaka, Indiana.

      "The big problem is that the H3/Canyon drivetrains suck compared to the Nissan Xterra and Frontier."

      That 5 cylinders inline has problems when compared to a lot of other same size pickup's engines.

      Supercharged Hummer H3 to Debut at Las Vegas’s SEMA Show

      So whats the big deal? There were numerous supercharged H3s at the SEMA show last year — what makes this one different? Well, this is the first two-speed super charger to be put in a high-performance car or SUV. The Hummer H3 will be displayed at Antonov’s (the manufacturer) booth inside the show. The real fun will be on the proving grounds where a similar system has been installed in a Ford Mustang GT. According to Antonov, the torque and power at the rear wheels of the GT is boosted 58% with the two-speed supercharger. And although they haven’t hooked the H3 up to any computers to test the output, they “confident of a similar performance boost for the Hummer.” Worlds fastest H3? I wouldn’t be surprised…
      To see this supurb Antonov supecharger in action goto: Good movie's with big sound' s.
      Also a lot of detailed pictures of this combined Rotrex/Antonov supercharger with the Antonov AMM 2-speed set up module. http://www.antonov-clubsite.nl/000000962f000d411/00000097c90900001/index.html
      In 31 oktober 2006 it will be demomstrated at the SEMA show in Las Vegas.

      Here we have all kind of discussions about this Antonov technology
