The recently announced 2009 HUMMER H3T holds a lot of promise for GM's ex-military brand. For one, it's a true truck with a separate cab and bed, which gives it some true truck capability compared to other crew cab unibody trucks on the market like the Honda Ridgeline (we know, a very unfair comparison). Riding on a stretched version of the regular H3's platform, the H3T will also be available with a huge catalog of optional dealer-installed accessories to personalize the truck to an owner's specific needs.

We'll see the H3T in person next week at the 2008 Chicago Auto Show, and HUMMER has even shown the truck in person to a few journalists already, but we thought you'd be interested in this string of b-roll video that the automaker has just released. We've spared you a techno soundtrack, so you'll hear the HUMMER H3T plowing through the snow as God intended, as well as few quick quips from HUMMER General Manager Martin Walsh and Director of Design Carl Zipfel about why they think the H3T is the cat's meow. Follow the jump to view the video.
