Under the hood there will be a choice of two engine choices, the GM Vortec 3700 3.7L I-5 (242 HP) and the GM Vortec 4200 4.2L I-6 (291 HP). The transmission choices will be an Aisin 5-speed automatic or 5-speed manual. The H4 will be launched at the end of 2009 as a 2010 model.

The H4 has two versions, a 2 and 4 door version. They both are based on the same platform, and the charasteristics of the two versions are pretty much the same. However, the main difference, of course, are the number of doors and the roofline. While the 4-door version follows the 90 degree cut line above the rear window, like the H2, the 2-door version has a coupé like, dropping roofline, like showed in the HX concept.

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.

GM head of marketing leaked info on new Baby Hummer, Cadillac and ElCamino!

We met with Mark LaNeve on monday night at a diner organized by GM to promote their new concepts at the Detroit Auto Show. Mark confirmed the upcoming reveal of a small Hummer truck, a small Cadillac and a G8 based pick up. The first two vehicle will certainly be very close to the Hummer HX and CTS coupe jsut unveiled in Detroit earlier this week. It is just strange that the HX concept it so close to the hummer H3T concept from 2004, moreover we have the feeling that the new Hummer will not be a pickup only version. About the Cadillac, the 2 door concept pave the way for smaller Cadillac vehicle. Let’s just hope the smaller Cadi will not be a Malibu re-badged! God knows how much GM think the Malibu is the next best thing after their Volt concept of course.

about the G8 pickup, we already know what it will look like, as Holden, who build the G8, already have car pickup in their lineup. LaNeve just said that he is looking for a good name, anything aside of ’ElCamino’!

Wanna help Mark? Submit your baby names for the baby Cadillac and the G8 pickup. My personal take: Cadillac CTA and Pontiac Trucko!

Keep in mind that LaNeve is ’only’ head of Marketing, which means that even if he identified demand for those cars, other consideration such as engineering or budget might not allow those project to go through. Time will tell.

Scheduled for introduction at the 2008 North American International Auto Show, the HUMMER HX concept reflects the innovative minds of three new GM designers - David Rojas, Min Young Kang and Robert Jablonski - whose first assignment was to provide a vision for the future design of off-road vehicles. Fresh out of the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, Mich., the designers’ first test in GM was to design a fun, nimble and innovative HUMMER concept.
