AT’s Photo Spotlight

May 8th, 2010 No comments

      The 2007 HUMMER H3 might be a bit of a novelty item, but it has what it takes to be called a HUMMER. With the requisite off-road goods (skid plates, 4.56 rear axle, beefy suspension, and 33″ knobbly tires) this Colorado based SUV proved itself surprisingly capable off the beaten path. We felt far more confident churning through the muck with the H3 than with its all for show big brother the H2. On top of that the H3 received what we felt was the best interior appointments of the HUMMER franchise.

2007 Hummer H3

Exceeding Even Our Lowest Expectations

    In the interest of full disclosure we must confess we weren’t expecting a lot from the yellow H3 that GM sent our way. It didn’t help that our colleagues were reporting that the H3’s 220-hp I5 engine made for a seriously slow vehicle. We’re talking getting passed by a Chevrolet Aveo with an automatic transmission going uphill into a stiff headwind slow. Read more…

Not Much Truck But Still A Lot Of Fun

     After spending a few days in a very nice H2 SUT we know one thing for sure: Buyers aren’t purchasing these things for their utility. The “midsize” member of the Hummer lineup has never been particularly useful for moving stuff from point A to B (not counting those rare instances when point B is in uncharted territory) because there really isn’t much interior cargo space. In the SUT that minimal interior cargo space has been replaced with minimal exterior cargo space in the form of a pickup bed with a four-hay bale capacity—maybe less! But we’re not dumb (Actually, test results are still pending—Ed). People buy Hummers because they look cool. The fact that they are comfortable, ride well, can drive through almost anything, and make you feel invincible are simply nice bonuses. Read more…

2005 HUMMER H2

I Never Thought A $60,000 Brick-On-Wheels Could Be So Cool

    There are few things that can increase your “coolness” factor as much as driving a Hummer. Wearing P. Diddy’s bling bling while having Heidi Klum draped on your arm might come close but to gain true “King of the Scene” status from your peers you need to arrive in the latest and greatest plaything of the rich and famous. For the last several years that has been the Hummer H2; the more civilized brother to the Hummer H1, which is itself, just a civilized version of the Humvee used to move troops in and out of harm’s way around the world. It may not be the prettiest thing in the world but it’s sure to get you recognized. If that’s what you want then read no further because the H2 is your ride. If, however, you are interested in how this brute rides, drives, stops, and goes then you’ll want to keep reading. Read more…

2006 HUMMER H1 Alpha

It’ll Do Anything, Except Hit 80

    What strikes fear into the heart of neighbors and most small countries? Well, the AT staff trying to pilot a 2006 Hummer H1 is a pretty terrifying image, if the expressions on fellow motorists’ faces is any indication. It’s not that it’s as large as a city bus (it is), or as loud a Cessna at take off (it’s louder), or even that it sucks through fuel faster than John Goodman at an all-you-can-eat buffet; it’s simply that it’s so darn hard to keep between the lines! Driving this thing at speed requires more concentration than two auto scribes juiced up on Starbucks and road grub can muster. Nevertheless, someone in the halls of GM thought it wise to loan us the keys to this $147,000 brick-on-wheels—they’re now currently unemployed. Read more…

2002 HUMMER H1

     How can an awful vehicle be so cool?
     That’s the question I constantly asked myself while driving the Hummer H1, a civilian version of the U.S. military’s supertruck designed to travel through swamps, deserts and jungles — anything but city streets. Read more…
