2010 Hummer H3 - Click above for high-res image gallery

Although the Hummer sale isn't officially official – which is to say, the Chinese authorities haven't told Tengzhong "Proceed!" – it is official enough that GM has restarted production of the 2010 H3 and H3T at its Shreveport, LA plant. General Motors didn't want to be stuck with dead models, so it closed the Hummer spigot while its side of the deal with Tengzhong was finalized. By the beginning of this month, though, the bottom of the inventory barrel was starting to peek through, with just 1,183 units on hand.

Even though Hummer sales are down more than 50 percent, nevertheless people are still buying, and the company's two H3 models are obviously the most popular. According to Automotive News, a Hummer spokesman reports that the 2010s should be arriving in dealerships in December – and as we reported earlier, you may even find them in two new colors and with biofuel capability.

      Anyone who blasts something has never seriously driven one. I had an opportunity to drive a stock Hummer H3 off road and was completely amazed at capabilities of the vehicle. It was going places stock Wranglers couldn't.

      Flame all you want, but it is (was) an amazing vehicle.

      And yes, you can fit more sh!t from Walmart in a Kia Sorento, but shouldn't we be buying less sh!t from Walmart and buying more things that put more Americans to work so we can get out of this recession? That is until the ink dries on the Chinese deal. :)

      The best thing about SUVs in general and Hummer in particular is how much they piss off the Envycrat party.

      I'd still buy a H3T Alpha if it were cheaper.

      Why in the world would they still make these things and stop making saturn...Now I know why GM is going down the tubes...

        GM tried to sell Saturn and Penske backed out. The Chinese kept their word though they were probably already building knockoff Hummers that are now Genuine Hummers

      Do people even buy Hummers anymore, they are completely out of style, these days its all about slick, sporty sedans, large SUVs stopped being cool 3 years ago.

      I am glad that this time someone bought a piece of crap but this time its the Chinese who are on the losing end.

        Maybe they will use it as a swat police car in China, they will need a scary looking vehicle with all the minority uprisings.

      Wouldn't it be ironic if a Chinese company gets an 8 speed automatic before GM?

      Get your 4 speed automatic here!

      At least it's good news for the folks in the Shreveport-Bossier City area. The first thing Tengzhong should do once (if) the deal closes is start working on the H4, based on the HX concept. Give the Wrangler some competition.

      Inject cash into GM and what happens? Business as usual. Next they'll be bringing back Pontiac.

      GM as usual blew it with Hummer. Here they had a brand which had a lot of credentials and desirability (before the liberal media began to vilify it). Had GM brought out a decent 5 seater H3, with good rear-seat space, a decent truck, a more efficient engine than the ridiculous I-5, and a real good interior with upscale leather and plastics, than it would have been a great RX350 fighter, and possibly even saving the entire brand.

      If it doesn't come with the seats covered in leather made from whale foreskin, then count me out!

      I just love it when I see a Hummer with a bicycle carrier on the back. Can't even find room for a bike in these outdated dinosuars. Just die already, Hummer.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Or maybe a bicycle is the bit of cargo that makes more sense on the outside, and other cargo that needs to be more secured is taking up room inside.

        Maybe it is because un-latching a bicycle from a rack is easier than re-assembling one after being stowed inside.

        Quick, uninformed value judgements on people you don't even know anything about... such intolerance of other people's freedom to do what they like is detrimental to a free country.

        What if some tyrant were to think so shallowly of things that you have thought out, and make judgements against you?
        • 5 Years Ago
        The Hummer is so big it should be able to swallow a bike whole without needing to be disassembled. As for the other cargo, please. Most of these carry the driver and his ego, that's it.

      Why don't Hummer bashers bash the Landcruiser,Sequoia,Pathfinder,Armada etc?
