Click above for more images of the HX in Transformers 2

These may not be the happiest of times at HUMMER, but it looks like the brand's bitchin' HX concept is going to get some silver screen love. No, not in G.I. Joe, but in Transformers 2. "Destro," a Joe fan over at HISStank.com, posted some TF2 set pics that clearly show the HX on hand in the role of a military vehicle. This is further confirmed over at Slashfilm, where you can see it in yet another batch of photos. While GM decides what to do about HUMMER, the tough-looking, flex-fuel HX concept is going to get some play in what's likely to be next Summer's big event movie. And because it's cool, people are probably going to want to know more about it, just like the first movie made the still-unreleased new Camaro a star in the eyes of the general public. Unfortunately, any plans to turn the HX into the production H4 are now, in all likelihood, very much up in the air at best. Not that it wouldn't be a good starting point for a HUMMER reinvention or anything.

      I thought a Toyota HiMedic (HiAce Ambulance) was also caught on the set of TF2?

      Its to bad GM did not offer a diesel option say 200hp
      lots of torque,and mid 20mpg consumption.they could
      be in good shape today.
      Mercedes ,audi have large fuel efficient vechicals with clean
      diesel power.Hummer deserves a better fate.

      It will be ironic if Hummer was discontinued as a brand just before the movie release.
      • 6 Years Ago
      If GM can afford to make HUMMER a niche brand like Jeep was pre-SUV boom, this vehicle will fit right in and will see mild success. The off-road enthusiasts are still out there and Jeep could use some stiff competition in that market.

        do the words off road and hummer even go together. the only one that'll do proper off roading is the H1

        damn reply glitch...
        that post should be down there a bit...

      Heres a question for you.... So, if they just close up shop, can someone steal that design? Obviously Jeep has their Wrangler, but someone could put a big hurt on Wrangler sales with that design. Obviously, if they sold Hummer, then the buyer would own it.

      Hope industry execs are keeping an eye on this, because someone should bring it to market.

      You guys are funny that the H1 is the only off road version. So, all Jeeps are a joke offroad as well? The H1 was obviously awesome offroad and the H2 and 3 obviously are less capable, but still very tough and capable off road. They cant do some silly things like drive in 3 feet of water, but lets be real. The H1 sold very little and the future Hummers had be be street comfortable as well as off road, so your going to take a hit once you want an offroad vehicle that rides nice. Frankly the biggest thing that makes these vehicles go offroad is the front and rear angles of the body, the height of the vehicle and undercarriage protection. Not much else is needed.

      One problem people forget about the H1 that the H3 and Wrangler have an advantage over it is that the H1 was so wide, you have to offroad where you never meet an area narrower then 8 feet.

        Yeah, I saw that one as well, lol. There a picture of a H2 thats out there as well thats funny, its all smashed up and someone added the test "H2, they only look tough" to the photo. Of course, it hit a school bus. Im sure you can find it out there.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Oh, I totally agree. Typical problem in off roading, as seen in most videos, is that you should be going very slow and have a spotter in most situations. You always see people going too fast, no one spotting andor on unfamiliar terrain.

        I like Range Rover, Jeep and Hummer myself.
        • 6 Years Ago
        There are also numerous videos of Jeeps failing at off-roading as well. I'm reminded of one in particular where a Rubicon is unable to make it up an incline that a Kia Sorrento makes it up first-try.

        Don't take this as my dislike for Jeeps, I actually like them and sold them for a short time as well. I'm just stating that videos you see online don't often give the whole story. Plus, no one ever claimed either vehicle was bullet-proof off-road anyhow.
        • 6 Years Ago
        you just reminded me of that funny youtube video where the H2 owner snaps a tie rod trying to do some rock climbing.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I thought I read that GM is considering dropping Hummer. I hope they keep this one and make it light and diesel powered. Give me a choice besides a Wrangler.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I hope they build this. It's not too much larger than a Jeep Wrangler as trucks go and looks awesome. With a reasonable curb weight and the right motors it could provide good performance with much better fuel economy than things like the H2. There will always be a market for this sort of vehicle, GM/Hummer just has to be a bit more savvy when going after it.

      oh man that thing looks badass....
      • 6 Years Ago
      Looks good, seems to fit right in when pictured right next to an Apache Longbow.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I'm in Bethlehem too, and got to see the Apache flying around at lunch time today--it was by ABE / Lehigh Valley Airport...I missed seeing the Hummer though.
