    Hummer H3T concept
    Turbo truck with a capital T
    AS GENERAL MOTORS WORKS TO further
    broaden the appeal of its militaristically rugged
    Hummer brand, a key future product will likely
    be a smaller, more affordable vehicle that
    retains Hummer’s in-your-face styling and
    off-road capability.

    The regular-cab two-seater features a fabric rollback roof
    and a power rear window to create an open-air driving experience.

    Oh great, it wasn't enough to turn a Tahoe into a H2 huh? Now what are they using? The S10? Another brand ruined by good old GM.

    I had heard today that chevy is coming out with two new midsize truck models with very western sounding names I believe one was called the Colorado, looks like they are going to rebadge one as a Hummer.

    To me this is a funny statement to make on ferrarichat.
    Ferrari's get horrid gas mileage, and even worse when hotrodded.
    Sports cars are more impractical than hummers.

    Hey Soccer Moms- You are looking at the 4th Hummer’s in-your-face styling :)

    You have to laugh :) What's next for poor Arnold's Hummer? GM is really pimping this name-tag

    My wife loves her H2 and I have been surprised at how good it appears to be made and how well it drives. She is getting a little over 12mph too. Also, while the H2 does use a GM platform, it is manufactured by AM General in it's factory and not in a GM factory. In fact, I was surprised as to how much better it is put togerher than her former Suburban. I hope GM uses AM General more not less.

    My H1 gets 10-11 mpg, my 360 gets 13-14 mpg, but who's counting.

    Just please remember that while your 360 takes less than 160 ft. to stop from 70mph, you're going to need another 84 feet(!) to bring that hummer to a stop. And since it weighs twice as much and damage to others is exponential to weight, the thing is a real weapon in your hands and should be driven slowly, with both hands on the wheel and eyes active at all times.

    The troop transport from alien could transport the entire family in safety. Even in the bad neighborhoods such as LB426. Retractable gun turrent so it can fit in the standard garage as well as the standard suborbital dropship.

    Best line from Aliens:
    Game over man. Game over. Now what the f$#k are we gonna do???

    Second best line from Aliens:
    "Bishop, do the thing with the knife."


    Third best line
    "I've been in charge of 47 combat drop missions........"

    ACTUAL OR SIMULATED?

    ".....simulated?"

    my thoughts exactly. and it isn't a hummer.. nor is an H2 a hummer in my book. only a hummer is a hummer, unless of course she's that good to you.
