Hummer H2 SUT
HUMMER H2 SUT is the newest addition to the HUMMER lineup and arguably, the most capable vehicle around. With truly remarkable off-road credentials, H2 SUT delivers unbelievable performance. Add to that its luxury interior – reminiscent of HUMMER H2 – and you've got the boldest, baddest HUMMER ever. HUMMER H2 SUT takes HUMMER to a whole new place. At its core you find everything you expect from H2. And then it's overbuilt for an entirely different experience. It's powered by a massive 325 hp Vortec 6000 V8 engine, which drives a heavy-duty 4-speed automatic transmission with full-time 4-wheel drive with electronically-controlled 2-speed transfer case with open differential. A 4-wheel/4-channel ABS system features electronic-traction control with single-wheel control capability. Independent torsion bar front suspension and standard 5-link rear suspension, both with gas-charged shocks, deliver uncompromising stability and off-road performance. Full underbody and rocker panel skid plates provide awe-inspiring protection. Out back, H2 SUT features a Midgate design with power glass window. Inside, H2 SUT has deluxe front reclining bucket seats with heated leather seating surfaces, automatic dual-zone air conditioning, power 6-way driver and front-passenger seat adjusters and 4-way lumbar adjusters. And interior comforts are punctuated with a DVD navigation system, AM/FM stereo with CD player and Bose premium 8-speaker system with subwoofer. Point for point, HUMMER H2 SUT is built for those that demand more. And nothing less. When it comes to a secure driving experience, HUMMER H2 SUT starts from the ground up. An incredibly strong frame, sure-footed wide wheelbase and an electronic traction control system over-delivers in every way. Plus, driver and front-passenger air bags, PASSLock theft-deterrent system and Tether Anchors for children are standard. In addition, H2 SUT features the safety and security of OnStarº with a one-year Directions & Connections Plan. Put it all together, and that's what we call safety, HUMMER style.

The Hummer H1 is based on the High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV), popularly known as the Humvee, which was created by AM General. Originally released in the civilian market in 1992, the Hummer H1 owes its birth to the popularity of photos from Operation Desert Storm and the enthusiastic campaign from actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who personally owns several variants of Hummer vehicles. The Hummer H1 has three common variants: a convertible-like soft top, a four-door hard top pickup truck and a station wagon body version. Other less known variants include a two-door pickup truck and a four-door slantback. At this time, the convertible/soft top and the station wagon versions are the only ones available in the mass market. The two door and four door pickup versions are only available in fleet livery. The Hummer H1 shares some common driveline parts with its HMMWV brethren. Items like brakes, differentials, frame and major body panels (hood, tailgate and quarter panels) are identical between the HMMWV and the Hummer H1. All Hummer H1s and HMMWVs come off the same first stage assembly line, and then are separated midway to either become a military HMMWV or a civilian H1. Hummer H1s are unique in the way they handle off road. They are inherently very stable, thanks to their wide stance. They also can ford 30 inches (76 cm) of water, climb a 22-inch (56 cm) step, have a stock ground clearance of 16 inches (41 cm) (thanks to its design of tucking driveline components inside a channel, which subsequently intrudes into the cabin space of the vehicle), have approach/departure angles of 72/37.5 degrees and most H1s are equipped with Central Tire Inflation System (CTIS), which enables the driver to increase or decrease the tire air pressure at will. Hummer H1s have many unusual features. They use inboard brakes. They have geared hubs, allowing the drivetrain's half shafts to be up high for greater clearance. The radiator is up high, sloping back over the engine. Rather than using simple runflat tires, aluminum or rubber inserts are an optional feature for runflat ability. A central tire inflation system is available as an option. Chemical warfare resistant paint is available only on the military version.
The H2 is the second vehicle sold under the Hummer marque of General Motors. It is a large SUV (though smaller than the Hummer H1) with room for five passengers and substantial off-road ability. The rearmost part of the H2 SUV was modified to a pickup truck bed for the 2004 H2 SUT ("Sport Utility Truck"). The H2 is built under contract by AM General at a specially constructed plant in Mishawaka, Indiana, USA. Although it shares GM's GMT820 truck platform with the Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon, those vehicles differ in many ways and are constructed in three other GM plants. The H2's final frame assembly is made up of 3 sections: The front uses a modified GM 2500-Series utility frame, the mid-section is all new and is completely boxed, and the rear section uses a modifed GM 1500-Series frame which is upgraded for the 8000 pound gross vehicle weight. H2 sales were initially strong, but fell to 28,898 for 2004 and 23,213 for 2005. The H2 was nominated for the North American Truck of the Year award for 2003. With its high ground clearance, large tires, protective underbody plates, and low gearing, the H2 is capable of climbing over a 20-inch-high (0.4 m) step-up wall (without the sill steps shown in the pictured example). A massive truck frame and wide track offer stability against overturning compared to some of the more common light truck SUVs, although objective tests have not been performed by the government or other outside parties due to its specialized vehicle class. The H2 is marketed as both a general purpose vehicle and as an off-road vehicle. Despite many people's misgivings about the capabilities of the H2, the vehicle is actually quite capable off road. Combined with a bountiful aftermarket accessory market, the H2 in its stock form and its modified form equal some of the best off road vehicles out in the market today.
The Hummer H3 is a vehicle from General Motors' Hummer brand, introduced in 2005. The H3 is the smallest of the three Hummer models, and though the H3 concept car was a pickup truck, the final vehicle is a conventional SUV. Its GMT345 platform is based on the GMT355 which underpins the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks. The H3 is built at GM's Shreveport, Louisiana factory. Export versions will also be produced at the General Motors South Africa facility in Struandale, Port Elizabeth, South Africa. In the American market, the H3 is priced from $29,500 to just under $40,000. Sales have been strong, with the 33,140 sold in 2005 making up 58% of Hummer's total sales for the year. For the first two months of 2006, 8,071 H3s were sold, 74% of all Hummer sales. The H3 uses the 3.5 L (3464 cc) Atlas straight-5 engine. This 20-valve DOHC unit produces 220 hp (164 kW) at 5600 rpm and 225 ft·lbf (305 N·m) at 2800 rpm. It is available with a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission. Its 111.9 in wheelbase is 1.1 in shorter than the GMT360 SUVs. It includes an electronically-controlled dual-speed transfer case and electronic locking differential. Since it is rated at less than 8500 lb (GVWR), Hummer is required to provide official fuel economy ratings. It is rated at 16 mpg in the city cycle with both transmissions and 19 mpg with the automatic or 20 mpg with the manual on the highway. While the Hummer H2 will ford 20 inches of water, the H3 will handle 24 inches of water. The H3 is the only vehicle in its class to have a 2-speed transfer case standard. The 5.3 L Vortec 5300 V8 is expected to be added to the model for the 2007 model year, with a diesel added later.
It hasnt even been a year since the new "budget" HUMMER H3 went on sale, but GM is already getting ready to show a new variation dubbed the H3x at the Greater Los Angeles Auto Show next week. Based off of the H3 Street Concept that was unveiled at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas last November, the H3x will be a 2007 model targeting HUMMER buyers looking to spice up their ride with an even bolder customized appearance package. "The H3x enables buyers to enjoy the appearance of a personalized, accessorized truck available directly from the factory," commented Susan Docherty, HUMMER general manager. "Its intended for those who want to make a personal style statement and differentiate themselves from other H3 owners." What upgrades differentiate the H3x from the regular H3? The H3x starts out Luxury package equipped, and adds chrome tube steps, chrome appearance package and chrome fuel door. A body-color grille replaces the chrome unit, making the new chrome brush guard stand out more prominently. The H3x also gets a body-color spare tire cover with a unique chrome embellishment featuring a HUMMER appliqué, plus an exclusive wheel, center cap and tire package. On the inside, added to the luxury package components, embroidered headrests add a touch of exclusivity. A choice of eight exterior colors and three leather interiors can be had, just like the regular H3, plus an assortment of dealer add-ons are also available. The H3x will be in dealerships across the country in late summer 2006. Prices will be announced closer to the launch date.
Hummer H1 Alpha
The 2006 H1 Alpha, featuring GM’s Duramax 6600 diesel engine, takes HUMMER performance to its ultimate extension and represents the single greatest advance in the 14-year history of the original HUMMER. Arriving in dealerships in early 2005, the H1 Alpha delivers more power, more torque, and enhanced on- and off-road capability, with significantly improved fuel economy. GM’s award-winning Duramax 6600 (6.6-liter) turbo-diesel engine and Allison 1000 five-speed automatic transmission give the H1 Alpha dramatic performance improvements and add to the H1’s legendary off-road capabilities. H1 Alpha is the first in HUMMER’s new performance series. “Alpha represents HUMMER performance taken to its ultimate extension,” said Susan Docherty, HUMMER general manager. “That means improving HUMMER’s already-unmatched off-road capability, along with enhancements to fuel efficiency and driving comfort on the road. As the original HUMMER, the H1 is the perfect vehicle to mark the start of the Alpha series.” As was the case for previous H1s, the 2006 H1 Alpha will be offered in both Open Top and Wagon models. The Duramax 6600 replaces the previous 6.5-liter Optimizer Turbo-Diesel, which will continue on as the power plant for the military HUMVEE, the vehicle on which the H1 is based. All commercial H1s produced for the 2006 model year will be H1 Alpha models. H1s used for fleet sales will use the Optimizer engine. H1 Alpha marks another important aspect of HUMMER’s ongoing growth, as the brand introduces new models and makes significant improvements to existing models. The H2 SUT, a new version of the H2 featuring a pickup-style cargo bed, began sales in the summer of 2004. The all-new H3, packing authentic HUMMER design and capability into a smaller and more fuel-efficient vehicle, arrives at dealerships in the spring of 2005.
