I can't help it. I just don't like Hummers. They're horrible gas hogs. They're impratical and they just seem like vehicles purchased by men who have something to prove.
Nonetheless, the unique vehicles have a loyal following, and that following will soon expand.
Hummer will enter the competitive pick-up truck market beginning in early February with the manufacturer's news H3T pick-up truck is unveiled at the Chicago Auto Show.
The Hummer H3T is a 'three-quarter' truck, slightly bigger than a midsize truck and somewhat smaller than a full-size one.
Martin Walsh, Hummer general manager said: "It offers the combination of truck versatility and Hummers off-road prowess that delivers customers to the trail in style."
Besides the usual Hummer design, the H3T features a five-foot truck bed, seats five and can tow up to 5,900 pounds with either a Vortec 3.7L I-5 (242 horsepower) or 5.3 liter V8 engine (300 horsepower).
Production is expected to begin this fall. The new truck's price has not been announced. But the price doesn't matter. Ho-hum, another hummer.
