Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

Vehicle Overview The Hummer H3 SUV and H3T pickup are available with a base 3.7-liter five-cylinder engine or a 300-horsepower, 5.3-liter V-8. Based on price alone, the H3 competes with the Land Rover LR2, Jeep Grand Cherokee and Lincoln MKX. In terms of off-road chops, it runs with the likes of the Jeep Wrangler, Toyota FJ Cruiser and Nissan Xterra.
New for 2010 The optional 5.3-liter V-8 gains flex-fuel capability, which means it's able to run on E85 ethanol, regular gasoline or any combination of the two.
Exterior The H3 is easily identifiable as a Hummer due in part to its short overhangs, upright windshield and windows, wide track and immense tires. Flat, chiseled surfaces also make the H3 noticeable. The seven-slot grille is flanked by round headlights in square openings.

H3T The H3T is a crew-cab pickup with a 5-foot cargo bed and room for five people. The H3T is longer than the SUV to accommodate its 5-foot bed, so it's positioned above midsize trucks but below full-size ones. It also has Hummer off-road capability, with standard full-time four-wheel drive.
The rear seats fold flat to create a level surface. The cargo box has a standard bedliner, a rail system and built-in storage compartments.
The H3T Alpha tops the range with a 300-hp V-8 engine, while the base model gets a 242-hp inline-five-cylinder. Back to top
