In 2003, Los Angeles, General Motors Corporation introduced the compact concept Hummer H3T, built on the Chevrolet Colorado / TrailBlazer platform. The concept was distinguished by a soft folding roof, a pick-up body that opens on three sides, Nike trim and all-wheel drive, which is included only when necessary. The undercarriage is based on a supporting frame with a front torsion bar and a rear multi-link suspension, the cab and the cargo body are made as one unit to increase the rigidity of the structure. The exterior remains the same deliberately rude. Flat body panels, square cab, huge headlights and rectangular grille clearly indicate the Hummer brand.

Dimensions of the car: 4.44 m in length, 1.89 in width and 1.79 in height. Hummer H3T demonstrates an unusual approach to the design of the pickup. Double car. It has a soft, detachable soft-top roof.

In the body there are side doors imperceptible at first glance, consisting of two halves - the upper one, which opens sideways, and the lower one, which is thrown back downwards and turns into a comfortable step. Thanks to these doors, it is much more convenient to use a spacious cargo platform - there is no need to make your way through the whole body to the things lying directly behind the cabin. Sealed folding tool boxes are built into the cargo compartment side walls. The tailgate leans back, forming a single plane with the bottom of the body.

The courageous appearance of the military machine was largely preserved, but at the same time a certain youthful playfulness appeared in the Hummer H3T appearance. Just look at the rubber in which the car is shod, with its red accents and fancy tread pattern. This is the result of GMโ€™s collaboration with Nike and BFGoodrich.

When the car went into series, the letter from the index disappeared, and just H3 remained. In the production range of the Hummer H3 Corporation appeared in 2005.
