Today is a movie day, it seems, and once again, it's General Motors in the thick of things. Via HISSTank comes a new set of photos from the G.I. Joe movie set. There, we see a couple of the modified HUMMER H2s that will be used, as well as the Saab Aero X concept. No word on which character's driving the latter. Storm Shadow, maybe? At least it'd match his threads. As for the HUMMERs, they are apparently equipped to traverse hedgerows. At least that's what we gather from those tacked-on rhino-style bumper mods. See more pics at HISSTank and mourn with us for the wholesale destruction of our childhood memories.

      The Saab Aero-X was rumored to be in Transformers 2 anyways, unsure why it is appearing in G.I. Joe instead.

        Isnt GI Joe the "Real American Hero"? what would you guys like him to drive? a Prius? now THATS an intimidating vehicle....gimme a break. While i think a H1 would have been a better choice then the lame H2 i still think it fits the type of movie its supposed to be.

        Im am also curious to know how the Saab is going to be used....i have loved that concept since it was shown to the public. id love to see it rolling down the street.

      GI Joe? HUMMER? Aren't we 6-7 years late for this? Oh well... AMERICRUH!
        • 7 Years Ago
        Suddenly, I'm reminded of Team America: World Police.
        • 7 Years Ago
        hah, first thing i said outloud was... "AMERICUH *UCK YEA"
      • 7 Years Ago
      So the Real American Hero's new missions include evacuating the kids from soccer practice, liberating 49-packs of Diet Coke from Costco, and strategic blockade of enemy intersections.

      Has the Hummer joke worn thin yet? A few more months? Who is still buying Hummers?
        • 7 Years Ago
        Who knows...

        All I know is that GM should be spending less money advertising in movies, and more money on developing a decent small and midsize car.

      A Saab in GI Joe, huh?

      And GM's Marketing Dept scores another "We Don't Understand Demographics" award.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Isn't this the production that has removed most american references from GI-Joe? Isn't he some sort of world government soldier, or something.

      Sorry, but if what I heard is accurate, this as FAIL written all over it.

      Are there no original ideas left, anyway?

      Sounds pretty awesome, however I'm still thinking the coolest cars GM sourced to a movie was 1993's "Demolition Man".

      Forget the cars? Check out the link http://imcdb.org/movie.php?id=106697

        don't forget that GM truck in Tango and Cash.

      Let's hope the hummers don't break down during the movie. We all know the new hummers can't actually go off-road.
        • 7 Years Ago
        No he is actually correct, MotorTrend did a comparison of SUVs offroading and even the Volvo XC90 out offroaded the H2 in some tests. There is no disputing the H1 has serious offroad talent but the H3 and H2 are nothing special
        • 7 Years Ago
        You really don't know much about offroading with that comment. Hummer completely blows away any OEM competition for offroading, save maybe the Wrangler. Maybe someday the H4x will be resurrected to put a nail in Jeep's coffin.
