Hummer H3

Hummer H3

Wild West is here, in this Hummer H3. Hummer always wants to instill the image of off-road toughness, and what better way to do that then by giving it the "covered wagon" look of wooden wagon wheels. This Hummer is actually an exhibit that will be parked on Old Burlington Road as part of Zoo Art Fair in Central London.

Hummer H3 gets wooden wagon wheels

Artist Matthew Harrison used the wooden wheels to create a sculpture that he says is a mixture of art, engineering and motoring. To our untrained eye, we’ll just consider it very old school.

Even if GM is considering selling Hummer , they needed to do a final attempt of bringing back the brand to its previous success. In September the 2009 H3T will go on sale at a price starting at $31,495.

The H3T is offered in four trim levels, including five-cylinder models and the popular, V-8-powered H3T Alpha edition.

2009 HUMMER H3T prices announced

The standard version is powered by a Vortec 3.7L I-5 with dual overhead cams and variable valve timing. This inline five-cylinder engine offers an excellent combination of power and efficiency, delivering 242 hp at 5600 rpm and 242 lb.-ft. of torque at 4600 rpm. The engine is mated with a a five-speed manual transmission or an available four-speed, electronically controlled automatic.

The H3T Alpha will be powered by 5.3 liter V8 engine that delivers 300 hp and a peak torque of 320 lbs-ft. An aluminum cylinder block is used with the H3 Alpha’s engine. It helps reduce overall mass and maintains a more desirable front-to-rear weight balance. The engine is mated with a Hydra-Matic 4L60 electronically controlled four-speed automatic transmission.

Even if Hummer’s sales were down 60% this June, GM launched a new special edition for the European market. Maybe the last one before the faith of Hummer will be decided.

HUMMER H3 Sensation

The HUMMER H3 Sensation offers all the features that are standard for the H3 3.7 automatic, on which the model is based. These features include a Hydra-Matic automatic transmission, cruise control, full underbody protection, fog lamps, a swing gate-mounted full-size spare wheel and StabiliTrak Stability Enhancement System.

Special characteristics for the H3 Sensation are a particularly distinguishing black or white paint, a unique body-coloured grille, a power sliding glass sunroof, black tubular side steps, black roof crossbars, an in-dash 6-CD changer and a Monsoon 7-speaker sound system. And the best news: all these options come at no extra cost! This means a saving for customers of approximately 4,000 Euros.

This ultimate toy has been created by engineer Dr James Brighton from Cranfield University. All the work has been made in about a month, and of course the engineer said he had a lot of fun during the process. Why is not that a surprise?

Full-size remote control Hummer H3

The results are clear – all controllers will be amazed by the handling ability – the best any radio controlled vehicle has had to date. The vehicle is capable of climbing a 407mm vertical wall, traverse a 40% side slope and operate in up to 610mm of water – imagine the fun”

Well bad news is that the toy won’t be available for sale! Damn! Might have been an interested toy for your kids!

HUMMER has partnered with Mountain Rescue (England & Wales), to provide a specially modified vehicle for the UK charity.

UK Mountain Rescue celebrates its 75th anniversary in 2008 and to commemorate this landmark, the newly launched right-hand drive HUMMER H3 will support the charity’s busiest teams in England and Wales across the year. The hardy on/off road vehicle will carry both equipment and personnel as Mountain Rescue goes about saving hundreds of lives annually.

The Hummer H3T is scheduled to be unveiled in the Chicago Auto Show next week. To stir it up a little before the official reveal, GM gave the test mules to HMR Magazine. The testers put the H3T through its paces and were pleased with the truck’s overall performance. This is what one of the excited testers had to say.

"Priced in the high thirties, I think the H3T will not only be a hit with recreational consumers, but everyone from Contractors to Search and Rescue crews will fall in love with this truck. I know HUMMER sees their main competition for the H3T being smaller pickups like the Tacoma or the Dakota. But anyone who’s seen the H3T will tell you that it’s "Like nothing else" and anyone who’s driven the H3T will tell you…there is no competition."
