SUV cum pickup bed have surfaced, via Lehmann Photo. As we told you a few months ago, the
was first shown at the
Los Angeles Auto Show
way back in '03, as a concept. The original was a 2-door pickup designed to be all-things
to the mid-size p/up crowd. During its gestation, however, it has apparently sprouted an extra pair of ports and looks to follow the H2T model a little more closely. It's basically an SUV with a short pickup truck bed where the third row of seats might have gone, which is more practical and probably cheaper to build. Expect a full range of bed accessories to keep things in the 4-foot-long bed organized and secure. Also expect to see the 242-hp 3.7L inline-5 and the new 295-hp 5.3L V8 from the H3 Alpha on the option sheet. We think the
will show up late next year as a 2009 model. Click over to
