HUMMER is on the skids and pickups aren't flying off dealer lots, but if you're smitten with the H3 and need to haul more than its covered cargo bay can handle, the H3T is yours for the taking. Pricing starts at $31,495, including a $ 745 destination charge -- $850 less than a comparable H3.
For that kind of cash, you get a five-foot-long bed covered with an integrated liner and built-in storage system, full-time electronically controlled four-wheel-drive, 32-inch tires, functional skid plates and the five-year/100,000-mile warranty. The base model will pack the 3.7-liter five-cylinder, but a 5.3-liter V8 will be available, along with Bluetooth integration and an upgraded OnStar system. GM hasn't released details on what that kind of kit will set you back, but you can hit up your local dealer to find out when the H3T goes on sale in September.

HUMMER Announces Pricing for All-New H3T
DETROIT – HUMMER announced pricing today for its highly functional and capable H3T midsize pickup truck arriving in dealerships this fall in the U.S. and Canada. Pricing will start at $31,495, including a $745 destination charge.
The all-new H3T is based on the architecture of the popular H3, and features a five-passenger crew cab and a separate five-foot-long (1.5 meters) bed. The H3T is infused with the attributes expected of a HUMMER, including exceptional off-road capability and a premium interior that is as functional as it is comfortable.
The H3T features an extensive list of standard equipment, including full-time electronic four-wheel drive, a standard integrated bedliner with built-in storage, a cargo management system plus HUMMER's premium five-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty plan.
"The H3T carves out a new segment in the midsize truck market, providing an outstanding combination of functionality and capability," said Martin Walsh, HUMMER general manager. "This will be the ideal truck for the buyer who need a truck's functionality for his or her lifestyle pursuits, but is looking for an alternative to the full-size truck."
The H3T stands apart from other trucks with the one of the industry's broadest array of accessories and signature HUMMER off-road capability. It is the only midsize truck to come standard with full-time four-wheel drive, 32-inch tires and functional skid shields. It also is the only midsize truck to offer front and rear locking differentials, as well as 33-inch tires.
The 2009 HUMMER H3T is scheduled to arrive in dealerships in September 2008.
