I like it. GM has needed a true off-roader for a long time. Not meaning other GM vehicles go off-road, but nothing really challenges the Wrangler at this point (the fj is a joke with plastic).

No frills, just the necessary stuff to take on the Wrangler and kill it. Wait, I don't want to see the Wrangler killed, I like the Wrangler, too.

H4 here we come!!!! I can't wait, I'm holding out for this. Finally a reason for me not to stray off and buy a Wrangler. I just hope they stay true to alot of the details on this thing, hell shocks and all!

warning to GM, i see far too much aztek in the slope of that rear hatch and the shape of the side windows. i would actually make the rear a little more upright.



I see more of the H1 slantback than I do my Aztek (and yes, I do own one of those lumbering pigs, let the flames begin). I think that the slantback works very well here, gives it a solid tie back into Hummer's military roots, all that's missing is the TOW missile launcher on the roof.

Something about it makes me think of an International Scout - and that's a good thing. AH-HA_wink.gif



I agree!

I wouldn't mind having both 2 and 4 door versions since the 4-door Wrangler is selling so well.

This thing is effing awesome! I love it!

Well, if you continuously jump the H4 like the guys with the FJs that had the cracked structures did...then yes.


Nothing more than an attempt at justifying sub-par engineering.

And while we're talking about other brands... FWIW, this Hummer concept is what the Ford Bronco should be like as well IMO.

Honestly not sure I'd take it, in H4 form, over a Wrangler.

I really, really like this thing. Hopefully the production exterior isn't dumbed down too much, and they don't wuss out on offering a 2dr.

I like it and would defintiely take the Hx/H4 over the Wrangler (and I too have always liked the Wrangler). Of course I'd like to see what the production-version changes would be, but I that doesn't change my overall impression of it. And for some reason, I can see this having a better "over-the-road" ride to it than the Wrangler. Don't ask me why though! tongue.gif



And not only does that exploded view show the Hummer H3/GMC Canyon/Chevy Colorado steering wheel, it shows a more "production-like" gauge & dash. Take a look for yourself!

I noticed in the Hxploded view that the steering wheel is the same one in the Colorado/Canyon/H3.

Not a coincidence, although this would be the next-gen platform.

I absolutly love it! And I'm not much of a Jeep fan. Just don't have any justifiable reason to buy one. Too bad it won't look like that in production form. Way too many concept only cues to be taken away for a production version.

Sure... I'll buy that.

Autoblog has had these four pictures of the Hummer Hx since December 10th (almost a month now!) and no one has made mention of them here:

This thing can steal some serious sales from the Wrangler, especially if there is a 4 door version.

The steering wheel also appears to say H4 on it. AH-HA_wink.gif

I'd rather have an AMC Eagle SX/4.

Well, for off-roading, lets drop that SX/4 on a built Jeep CJ5 frame... but who actually off-roads these?

Total cost for my machine? Less that 5 grand... and I won't be afraid to scratch it.
