The Hummer brand was taking a serious hits due to $3+ per gallon gasoline, but the H3 came out in the knick of time to bail out the General and its dealers. Now sales aren't looking bad at all, and with the upgraded H2 and the upcoming V8 H3, the future is looking bright for GM's bling'd-up Jeep fighter.
Now the General is looking to add another 35,000 annual units into the Hummer sales log with the addition of the H3T, which sports four doors and a 4x4 pickup bed. Our friends over at PickupTruck.com tell us that the four door model was chosen over the two-door concept from the 2003 LA Auto Show because it was less expensive to modify the existing vehicle. The H3T cargo area will feature plenty of options for customization, including hard tonneau covers, lockable cargo covers, a removable lunch box/tool box, and various storage boxes that run either the length or width of the bed. Engine choices will be the 245 hp 3.7l, and the 295 hp 5.3l V8 from the H3 Alpha concept.

Production of the H3T will begin in 2008, with deliveries scheduled for the third or fourth quarter. While the two-door pickup concept from the LA show was quite the looker, we're thinking that more people would want the utility of four doors, and at only 35,000 units, we can see why doing both would be expensive.

      LOL, I love how defensive everyone is getting at McNasty's comment. As much as I don't agree with him, I think it's funny how people are taking such personal offense at his comments. I think what I said speaks for itself for those people out there who know a little something about psychology.

      #2: Sounds like someone's a little jealous because they can't afford one. But it's ok, scrubbing the floors isn't such a bad job.

      #2... what is tipping off the size of his manhood?

      is it the fact that he drives a "military inspired" vehicle? (bad news for jeep owners)

      is it the fact that it is a midsize suv? (bad news for lots of suv owners)

      or is it the fact that it says "hummer" on it and everyone automatically demonizes it?

      so the H3 came in with it's 5cyl when gas hit $3 a gallon and now they're stuffing the H3 w/ a V8? thing should eat gas like the H2 although on a smaller scale (no pun intended).

      #2... So there King-Dong... What is it that you drive. I am wondering if its a Prius thus requiring you to tuck your sack all the way back. Way to comment... tough-guy.

      McNasty - You're confusing the H3 with the H2. The H3 is a decent truck; it's just a bit overpriced against the Xterra and Dodge Nitro because of the Hummer name.

      phewop118 - You should have checked out the Canyon/Colorado crew cab.

      The H3T that they had posted earlier looked very mean and aggressive. I'd buy one and I don't even need a truck!

      Why is it when somebody buys a fast or expensive car or "look at me" vehicle it's because they are compensating for a part of their male anatomy?

      I drive a flashy convertible...I'm not compensating...I just like to drive sweet rides!!!

      Don't hate the player hate the game!!! ;-)

      I think clean burning diesels would be a great addition to the HUMMER line; solving some of the mpg problem, and actually making them that much more like the real thing.

      When I first saw it back in Desert Storm I thought the HMMWV was the most beautiful truck ever. All these GM Hummers are basically the same as a Lamborghini Countach body kit with a v6 in it. Posers. You're not driving a 'jeep', its not a civilian HMMWV, its a Tahoe with different sheet metal.
