The desert surrounding Las Vegas has long been the inspiration of off-road enthusiasts. HÚMMER is the ultimate expression of off-road capability and it comes to Vegas and the 2008 SEMA Show wîth a trio of special vehicles guaranteed to quicken the pulse of anyone whose vacation plans include destinations like Moab or Baja.
HÚMMER introduces two concepts, a new, pre-runner-style H3T outfitted wîth a raft of performance and appearance accessories, and the H3 X Concept – a proposal for the ultimate H3 X. The third vehicle is a modified H3 Alpha that was built by Four Wheeler Magazine as an ongoing project detailed in several issues and online.
'HÚMMER has always been about unmatched capability and that's exactly what these concept vehicles deliver,' said James Taylor, HÚMMER CEO. 'More importantly, they are based in reality wîth mostly bolt-on components attainable by any enthusiast who wants them. They are more than concepts; they're thought starters for enthusiasts who want to express themselves via their H3 or H3T.'
While none of these specialized HÚMMERs is targeted for production, they incorporate Genuine HÚMMER Accessories components and other aftermarket parts that are on the market today, allowing enthusiasts to replicate much the concept vehicles' attitude and enhanced capability. H3 X Concept
The HÚMMER H3 X Alpha is a stylish and capable vehicle straight from the factory, but the H3 X Concept takes style and exclusivity to the next level. Production equipment includes 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.

|Engine : 5.3 L., 8-cylinder|

The H3 X Concept builds on those features wîth the following:
• New 18-inch wheels wîth unique finish
• All-terrain 35-inch-tall tires
• Black chrome finish on exterior chrome components, including an exclusive black chrome hood louver
• Body-color rear bumper extensions
• Clear turn signal and side repeater lenses
The exterior is painted a distinctive Canyon Metallic color from PPG that is complemented brilliantly by the black chrome details and 18-inch wheels. The interior features black leather trim on the seats, console armrest, door armrests and shift knob that is accented wîth orange stitching. It also features custom mats wîth orange piping and a headrest DVD entertainment system that is available from HÚMMER Accessories.
Powering the H3 X Concept is the Alpha model's 5.3L V-8 engine that delivers 300 horsepower (224 kW) and 320 lb.-ft. of torque (434 Nm). It is partnered wîth a four-speed automatic transmission and enables great off-road driving control and a towing capacity of 6,000 pounds (2,721 kg) – enough to haul a trailer packed wîth a weekend's worth of dirt bikes, camping gear and more.Source - GM
