The HUMMER H3 reached the Quonset-hut auto HUMMER like the war-weary Americans are moving away from the H2 and brand. Sales plummet but the HUMMER H3 was seen as the appropriate vehicle at the right time. It certainly looked the part, with bronze grating HUMMER and squared-off fenders.

Below, however, had no military branch H3 as H1, not a full-size animal such as H2. He turned architecture founded GM small trucks, the Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon. He shared his mediocre powertrain – A dated inline five-cylinder with 220 horsepower and 225 pound-feet of torque motor. Hauling around the 4700-lb H3 was more than the 3.5-liter engine could comfortably hurry: 0-60 mph times were linked to 10.3 seconds. The fuel economy of 20 mpg highway 11 mpg clearly exceeded the H2. The voluminous HUMMER was narrower than the largest H2 only six and a half inches, but it was almost 17 inches shorter, which showed in his limited interior space.

All H3 came standard with a four-wheel drive with electronic control and traction control and shielding low; locking rear differential was an option. As GM fell into financial difficulties, HUMMER H3 updates the first with a larger engine, 3.7-liter, five-cylinder makes 242 horsepower in the 2007 model year. 5.3-liter V-8 was added for the 2008 model year , put on a new model called the H3 Alpha; I was good for 295 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of the torque, delivered through the heavy-duty four-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive. The power train increased towing capacity of 6000 pounds H3.

A pickup bed version was added for the 2009 model year, but the writing was on the wall of division. GM filed for bankruptcy in 2009 and tried to sell the brand to Chinese owners, Sichuan Tengzhong. When the company received approval from the Chinese government for the transaction, GM closed Hummer, the Hummer H3 building end in May 2010.
