GMT745, the long-anticipated Hummer H3T was spotted over the weekend,
sporting a crew-cab configuration. Although the original concept was
a short-bed pickup with just two doors, economic decisions
made the four-door H3 variant much more affordable to produce.
which can almost be described as cute, will
offer a cargo area of roughly 4-feet wide by 4-feet long. A hard
tonneau cover will be available as an option, as will several choices
of lockable cargo boxes.
optional cargo boxes are expected to include a small lunchbox/toolbox
with the ability to easily lift-off and take to your worksite. Other
boxes are likely to include cargo boxes that run the whole length of
the bed, as well as one which will run the width.
will include the new 295-horsepower V8, as first shown in the H3 Alpha,
as well a 242-horsepower 3.7-liter I5 powerplant.
LA-built H3T will start production in August of 2008, and arrive in
the third or forth quarter of 2008, as a 2009 model. Hummer plans to
build about 35,000 units annually.
