Overview Information

Hummer has expanded the product line to include the midsize H3 SUV. An unusual 3.5L I-5 borrowed from the Chevy Colorado powers the H3. The smaller H3 has the best fuel economy in the Hummer lineup. Stabilitrak® stability control provides additional safety on the road. Transmission options include a 4-speed automatic or a 5-speed manual. For off-pavement excursions, the H3 has an electronic locking differential and a 2-speed transfer case. An Adventure package offers larger tires for enhanced capability off-road. Hummer claims that the H3 can ford 24 in deep water at 5 mph, and climb 16 in steps or rocks.

What Changed:

All-new mid-sized H3 is loosely based on the Colorado/Canyon truck platform. The same 3.5L inline 5-cylinder engine powers the H3. The H3 features an electronic locking differential for off-road use and Stabilitrak® stability control for on-road use. Transmission choices include a 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic.

Official Word:

"H3's arrival establishes an extraordinary new presence in the previously ordinary world of midsize SUVs. HUMMER has developed a passionate following because of its unmatched style and capability, and the H3 extends that appeal by making the brand accessible to a broader range of potential owners." -- Susan Docherty, HUMMER general manager.
