General Motors confirms Hummer range expansion
15 Jan 2004

General Motors is expanding its popular and controversial Hummer lineup, adding a midsize sport utility vehicle that could go on sale next year, Associated Press (AP) reported.

Hummer spokesman Pete Ternes on Wednesday told AP that dealers learned about the new vehicle in September but refused to say when the next version of the hulking SUV would appear in showrooms or how much it would cost.

AP noted that, last month at the Los Angeles motor show, GM introduced a design concept for a midsize pickup called the Hummer H3T, which features a pickup box with side-access doors and a drop-down rear window - the concept is built on a modified GM midsize truck platform and powered by a 350-horsepower, five-cylinder turbocharged engine.

Gm makes hybrid hummers. My company had to redesign a special project for the military because of it.

Good for Hummer!
Now... GM needs to make a Hybrid Hummer.  :blink:
Hybrid Hummer for the public sounds good to me. If they could use a hybrid system to increase the power and fuel economy, I think it would be pretty cool... how about a hybrid system on the H1?-- the extra price for the system would be nominal compared to the price of the whole vehicle.

The H1 gets pretty good fuel economy (it is a diesel) something like 16 City or 16 Highway i forget, but Im pretty sure its the first. The heavy H2 is the one that needs it, and a diesel, and an atkins diet...

I just heard that the H1 will get the Duramax Diesel at extra cost in next model year. I think that's groovy. :flush:

It is a great idea. 6.5 in the H2 would be even better.

Don't understand your sarcasm, Queeny. It should prove to be a benifit.

As I understand it, the HUMMER brand team has sent the engineering team back to the drawing board and they have a solution. GM has yet to sign off on it. Stay tooned! :bounce:
