2010 Hummer H3T review: Our expert's take

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.

(Skip to details on the: H3T)

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.

  • Two-foot water-fording depth
  • Standard front tow hooks
  • Rear swing gate incorporates fixed glass and a door-mounted full-size spare tire
  • Standard 16-inch wheels
  • Optional sunroof

Interior
The H3 has sporty bucket seats up front and a 60/40-split folding rear bench. It accommodates up to five people.

  • Standard remote keyless entry and three 12-volt power outlets
  • Standard cloth upholstery
  • Optional heated leather seats
  • Optional DVD navigation system
  • Optional backup camera

Under the Hood
The H3 is powered by a 3.7-liter inline-five-cylinder engine with dual overhead cams and variable valve timing. It makes 239 hp and 241 pounds-feet of torque. There is also an optional 5.3-liter V-8 that makes 300 hp and 320 pounds-feet of torque.

  • Five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission; V-8 is only automatic
  • 4,500-pound towing capacity with inline-five-cylinder; H3T has 4,400-pound max
  • 6,000-pound towing capacity with V-8; H3T’s maximum is 5,900 pounds
  • Standard full-time four-wheel drive
  • Underbody skid plates
  • Off-Road Adventure Package includes front and rear locking differentials

Safety
Safety features include:

  • Side curtain airbags
  • Electronic stability system
  • Antilock brakes
  • Tire pressure monitoring system

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

Very safe Vehicle.

This makes my first Hummer H3T. But it's just like the Hummer H3 that I have had two of just with a useful bed!

bought a used 2010 H3T and have driven it for 6 months now in all Canadian conditions. Best vehicle I've ever owned. Ugly as sin but has outstanding utilitarian quality and cannot be confused with the rest of the new trucks out there. Its not huge, smaller than a fullzise f150 and better on fuel than my old (2008) ford ranger 6 cylinder. I have improved the mpg by buying a slightly higher (33"), narrower tire in an E rating, and it helps the engine stay at low revs on the road. Mines the 5cylinder auto, and I can find no fault with it - shifts smoothly, carries me and the girlfriend and toys at a good speed without burning through too much of our expensive canadian gas. This truck fits me so well, and that is all that really matters. Everything is really well built, and better than the Colorado or Canyon trucks that I've looked at (running gear is somewhat the same but the pieces seem heavier made). For $30k canadian, I couldn't think of another comfortable 4 door truck with this level of ability or unique looks. Funny watching the fullsize and tacoma guys checking my h3t out in parking lots. Drive what makes you happy and what makes sense for you - don't always believe the car review press guys, most of them have never worked a day in their lives - choose what you think works. RG.
