Once an embargo has been broken, it has been really been! After the two official images of the H3T we showed you yesterday, here are another ones. They cam from Pickuptruck.com and give you a pretty good idea of both interior and exterior of the truck. The H3T is based on the platform of the H3, but features a five-passenger crew cab and a separate five-foot-long (1.5 meters) bed. The H3T 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 – and the V-8-powered H3T Alpha can tow up to 5,900 pounds. It will be offered in four trim levels, including five-cylinder models and the popular, V-8-powered H3T Alpha edition. Production is scheduled to begin in the third quarter of 2008.
Standard version will be powered by a Vortec 3.7L I-5 engine that delivers 242 hp at 5600 rpm and 242 lb.-ft. of torque (328 Nm) at 4600 rpm. It is mated with a five-speed manual transmission or an available four-speed, electronically controlled automatic.
The more powerful Version H3T Alpha will be powered by a 5.3 liter V8 engine that delivers 300 hp and a peak torque of 320 lbs-ft.
