The HUMMER H3T has been much in the news lately, now we finally have some press coverage that doesn't involve broken embargoes. After a few days in the High Sierras putting pre-production versions through boulder-strewn paces, the words from HMR magazine are: it's good!

Once past the marketing-speak -- like "With its unique size and HUMMER traits, the H3T is ideal for the customer who works hard and plays harder" -- the H3T with the Adventure Package put in a proper HUMMER showing: the 5-foot bed hasn't killed the truck's departure angle, the length hasn't ruined its agility, and it even got in the obligatory Jeep smackdown encounter. The H3T also has 160 official aftermarket partners creating a glutton's range of branded accessories.

The public will find out if it's really the lion's roar when it shows up on dealer lots in September. Until then, click the link to get the full review, and Autoblog will bring up the up-close and personal from its debut at next week's Chicago Auto Show.

      Hummers look great as true pickups! :)

      Logitech: Where do you people get this stuff?

      NO, the H3 is NOT a colorado with a HUMMER body (this is such a ridiculous comment to anyone who has the SLIGHTEST clue of what's involved in car design/manufacturing, if there weren't so many ignorant people believing this crap I wouldn't even bother posting this. Seriously folks, if you want to be an automotive enthusiast, take the damn time to understand the basics)

      The H3 shares around 10% of the Colorado, and that's mainly driveline/nuts and bolts.
      The frame is unique to the H3.
      Different front and rear axles.
      Different Transfer case.
      Suspension components different and beefier.
      It goes on, and on, and on.

      An Audi R8 isn't a Gallardo simply because it shares a few components...

      From the article:
      "Really? I can’t believe you made it all the way in with stock trucks. I'd never try it in a stock Jeep."
      - and:
      "Priced in the high thirties..."

      Yeah... there's an enormous price difference between Jeeps and Hummers. You can get a Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited in the high twenties and have plenty of money left over for a lift and a winch, if you even needed either. Woop-te-do.

      Personally, my 2DR Wrangler X (priced in high TENS) with nothing but a mild lift and 32" tires is more than adequate to deal with trails much harder than the one photographed in the article. I just can't see how anyone serious about off-roading would want a Hummer.

      hmm a mid size pickup with the HUMMER H3 flavor from the same people who brought you the Colorado ... I'll pass.

      Will it come with a diesel????
      Wish I had a use for one.
      • 7 Years Ago
      It's okay, you don't have to have a use for one. Ask 95% of all hummer owners. They just own one to pretend to be macho, make up for their dick size, or use it to go 'omg shopping!"

      • 7 Years Ago
      Yeah, that looks great and way better than the H2 with the bed.

      If you're interested in seeing more about the H3T, GMnext has a video with HUMMER's design manager talking about the car. Check it out:

      I didn't know that trees grew diagonally.

      Isn't the H3T a Chevrolet Colorado/GMC Canyon with a different body???? So why the big press coverage, and the testing mule. If the Colorado can do it, then the H3T can do it too.

      I'm so glad the unbiased, hard-hitting reviewers at HMR magazine took a hard look at the H3T and gave us this in-depth look.


      It may be good, it may not be, but I'll believe it when it really gets put through its paces by offroaders who aren't necessarily paid Hummer fans.

      I'm glad to see more and more HUMMERs here in Europe =)
