The 2007 HUMMER H3 is a highly versatile midsize SUV and the addition of an E85-capable 5.3L V-8 increases its versatility. E85 is an ethanol-based alternative fuel made from domestically produced renewable resources. GM engineers developed the H3 E85 FlexFuel to demonstrate that an alternative fuel vehicle can combine with stylish design for a unique, forward-thinking SUV. To highlight the H3 E85’s alternative intentions, designers focused on making the H3 exterior smooth and streamlined, including the addition of a body color rear spare tire cover.
The 2007 HUMMER H3 has an available oversized power sunroof for an open-air feel, but the H3 Open Top concept goes a step further with ASC’s unique sliding fabric “Infinivu” roof system. The expanded opening provides a nostalgic, safari-style experience in a thoroughly modern midsize SUV.

Off-road desert racing is possibly the most grueling form of auto racing in the world. Recognized around the globe by races like the SCORE Baja 1000, “Best in the Desert” (BitD) Racing Association’s 500-mile Vegas to Reno, and the 1400-mile Dakar Rally, it also is the ultimate proving grounds for manufacturers to push production vehicles to their limits.
