|The midsize H3’s iconic
HUMMER style and unparalleled off-road capability have earned it a
prominent position in the growing HUMMER legacy, and extend the brand’s
passionate following by making it accessible to a broader range of
For 2007, H3 receives a new engine: the Vortec
3.7L I-5 with dual overhead cams and variable valve timing. This
inline five-cylinder engine offers an excellent combination of power
and efficiency, delivering 242 horsepower (180 kW) at 5600 rpm*
and 242 lb.-ft. of torque (328 Nm) at 4600 rpm.
And less than a year after the H3’s debut,
HUMMER expands the line with a new model called the H3X*, based
on the H3 Street concept shown at the 2005 Specialty Equipment Market
Association (SEMA) show.
The 2007 H3X injects new energy into the HUMMER
lineup, appealing to buyers with an interest in a customized appearance
available directly from the factory . The H3X begins with an H3
equipped with leather seats and a six-disc changer with Monsoon
sound system, chrome tube steps, chrome appearance package with
bright roof crossbows and chrome fuel door. The package also includes
a body-color grille and unique spare tire cover, tires, wheels and
center cap, and a brush guard. The interior features headrests embroidered
with the H3 logo.
Consumers can further personalize their H3X
with any of the H3’s eight exterior colors and three leather
interiors. It also is available in two exclusive colors: Sonoma
Red Metallic and Desert Orange Metallic.
The H3X arrives in dealerships the third quarter
of 2006, and is available in the United States and Canada
2007 changes include standard StabiliTrak on the manual and automatic
transmissions; a new chrome wheel for 33-inch tire; Midnight Blue
exterior finish replaces Superior Blue; and the discontinuation
of the Shadow Green exterior and E bony/Green cloth interior.
The H3 packs trademark HUMMER capability into
a midsize package. Compared to the H2, the H3 is 16.9 inches (429
mm) shorter in length, 6 inches (152 mm) shorter in height and 6.5
inches (165 mm) narrower. Roughly the same length as a midsize family
sedan, H3 comfortably navigates city traffic and fits nicely in
Like all HUMMERS, the H3 delivers exceptional
rock crawling and climbing performance. The H3 was engineered for
off-road leadership among midsize SUVs. The heart of this capability
is its electronically controlled four-wheel drive system. The system
features traction control, underbody shielding, an optional rear
locking differential and StabiliTrak stability control. H3 offers
two tire packages, a Goodyear 32-inch, all-terrain tire and Bridgestone
33-inch off-road tire, both larger than those found on any other
midsize SUV. Also available is a specific off-road tire for the
H3X, an 18-inch 265/65R tire.
Among its off-road credentials, the H3 can ford
16 inches (407 mm) of water at 20 mph or 24-inch (610 mm) streams
at a 5-mph pace, climb 16-inch (407 mm) vertical steps and rocks,
make its way through deep sand and race easily over sandy surfaces.
H3’s more maneuverable size provides advantages,
such as a 37-foot (11.3 m) turning circle, about the same as a typical
compact car, making easy work of parking lot maneuvers and tight
turns when off-roading. The 9.1-inch (231 mm) ground clearance and
maximum breakover angle of 25 degrees (with 33-inch tires) both
make it possible to clear large obstacles in off-road driving. Serious
off-road performance is also aided by the maximum approach angle
of 40 degrees and maximum departure angle of 37 degrees. These approach
and departure angles permit the H3 to drive into a hole and back
out again, without getting hung up in the front or rear.
The H3 also provides the refinement, comfort
and convenience required for enjoyable on-road driving as well.
It offers premium options such as heated leather seats, a large
electric express open/close sliding sunroof, a DVD-based navigation
radio and numerous customized accessories.
|Iconic HUMMER design
H3’s bold looks make it readily identifiable
as a HUMMER. Features such as its wide track width, short overhangs
and huge tires provide stability, outstanding ground clearance and
quick rock-climbing capability in off-road driving.
The H3’s flat, chiseled surfaces; upright
windshield and windows; signature seven-slot louvered grille; round
headlamps housed inside square openings; and pronounced fender flares
are all pure HUMMER. Power and strength emanate from its cube-like
metal billet form.
The H3’s interior is inviting and modern,
blending premium cues with world-class craftsmanship. Upscale touches
include a perforated, leather-wrapped and stitched steering wheel
and automatic transmission shift handle; bright-accented instrumentation;
brushed, machine-finished trim plates; chrome door release handles;
chrome bezel for the automatic transmission shifter; and a chrome
H3 emblem in the center of the steering wheel.
OnStar-equipped H3s will feature as an option
(with the upgrade to Directions and Connections) a new service called
OnStar Turn-by-Turn Navigation, the first factory-installed, fully
integrated GPS navigation system from OnStar by GM. Turn-by-Turn
allows consumers to talk to a live advisor, who in turn sends complete
step-by-step directions to customers' vehicles through their OnStar
system. These audio directions automatically play through the vehicle’s
stereo as needed, triggered by the OnStar system’s GPS capabilities.
This enables drivers to be led to their destination while keeping
their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. For more information
about OnStar, see the OnStar Overview in the Product Information
Guide Corporate Book.
The H3 incorporates structural enhancements
and advanced safety systems to assist in crash avoidance and protection,
including a reinforced passenger compartment safety cage that helps
provide protection in the event of side and frontal impacts. The
strong, rigid steel structure surrounds the passenger compartment,
runs from the A-pillars to the roof rail, back to the D-pillars
and includes the bottom rocker panels, under-floor longitudinals
and frame. The all-steel body panels and exceptionally strong frame
further help protect occupants in a collision. The fully welded,
ladder-type frame optimizes crash performance, in addition to standing
up to rigorous off-road requirements.
Additional crash protection is provided by a
standard frontal dual-stage air bag system. The H3 has GM’s
Passenger Sensing System, which uses weight-sensing technology to
turn the front passenger air bag on or off as appropriate. If the
sensor system detects an unoccupied front passenger seat or the
presence of a smaller occupant, the front passenger air bag is designed
to automatically turn off so it would not deploy in the event of
a frontal collision. Even with this system, GM strongly recommends
restraining child passengers 12 and under in an appropriate child
seat or, for older children, lap-and-shoulder belts in the second
or third row of the vehicle.
Optional roof rail-mounted, side curtain air
bags drop down to the belt line to help provide head and rollover
protection for the driver and front passenger. A rollover protection
sensing system also helps protect occupants against impending rollovers
by triggering side curtain air bags to increase the likelihood of
occupant containment in a rollover event. Seat belt pretensioners
help keep occupants in the proper position, reducing their likelihood
making contact with the inside of the vehicle.
