The second concept presented at SEMA Show by Hummer is H3T Sportsman concept based on the new H3T Alpha. The concept is powered by a 5.3L V-8 engine that thanks to the addition of new LS2 cylinder heads, a higher-lift camshaft and supporting components adds an extra 70 hp to the standard output, meaning a total of 370 hp.
It rides on 35-inch-tall BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A tires mounted on HUMMER Accessory 20-inch wheels and adds new HUMMER accessories including grille-mounted and custom low-profile front- and rear-facing roof-rail mounted Delta off-road lamps, a body-color upper grille and a matte finish fuel door.

Hummer will be presented at SEMA Show with two customized concept cars. The first of them is H3 Moab, a concept inspired by trails like Steel Bender, Moab Rim, and Poison Spyder.
Based on the 300-hp V8-powered H3 Alpha, the Moab concept combines a Rancho four-inch front suspension lift and a custom rear spring-over conversion inspired by current HUMMER engineering test vehicles.
the concept is painted in Canyon Metallic and also features a HUMMER Genuine Accessory lower grille mounted lamps and six Delta Xenon roof basket-mounted off-road lamps to provide lighting in all conditions.

Have you even wondered how the Hummer of the future will look like? One thing is for sure: it needs to go smaller and to be more fuel efficient. This is why Andrus Ciprian designed the HB concept - an extreme off-road vehicle with almost no front or rear overhangs, and massive wheels and tires for tackling almost any surface.
The Hummer HB features an all-aluminium chassis, with carbon fieber being the main material for the body. It is powered by a V6 engine which is biofuel capable. Power is sent to all four wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission.
The HB can be offered in two different versions: one would be equipped with a smaller windscreen split into three sections, and an array of cameras around the vehicle which relay video to screens around the driver and the second one is fitted with a more conventional single frame windscreen and is designed more for the serious off-roader with additional lighting mounted on the roof.
Hummer is preparing three H3 Concepts for the future SEMA Show: H3T Weekend Warrior Concept, Four Wheeler Magazine Project Trailhugger and H3x Concept.
The H3T Weekend Warrior is based on the H3T Alpha and is powered by a 5.3-liter V8 engine that now delivers 370 hp (up from the standard 300hp). The concept is painted in Baja Orange Metallic and features roof-mounted and grille-mounted off-road lamps, a body-color upper grille and custom hood graphics.
The H3 X Concept is painted in Canyon Metallic and features bright roof crossbows; chrome fuel filler door, assist steps and brush guard; body-color grille and spare tire cover; 18-inch wheels and embroidered seat headrests.
The H3 Alpha Four Wheeler Project Trailhugger was developed in association with Four Wheeler Magazine. It is painted in a matte red paint and is equipped with Simulock 16-inch wheels; Gobi Stealth roof rack with a custom, wireless remote-operated perimeter lighting system, Warn XD9000 winch, DeFelice Offroad Innovations winch mount system and Up Armor skid plate.
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!
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.
Thanks primarily to the efforts of the Team HUMMER racing team, led by Rod Hall, the HUMMER H3 has quickly proved to be a formidable off-road competitor. It runs – and wins – in stock-class off-road races, where racers must rely on production chassis and powertrains.
The HUMMER H2 Safari concept brings a unique, open-air experience to those who want to experience as much of the outdoors as possible when taking their H2 to a favorite wilderness location. A unique, safari-inspired matte olive finish allows sportsman to take the H2 Safari on to the trail and blend in with the scenery.
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. The look and fun factor are classic, but the ease of operation, durability and weather resistance are strictly contemporary.
At Detroit Auto Show, in January, General Motors will unveil a Hummer H4 Concept vehicle. The model will be a smaller truck that will compete with the Jeep Wrangle and will go on sale in 2010.
Also a H3 pickup will be available in 2009: "They want to broaden the product lineup for Hummer because they have had quite a degree of success with the H3 SUV," says Erich Merkle, director of forecasting at IRN Inc. in Grand Rapids, Mich. "The H2, in this environment, is too large. It’s (...)
