Automotive News / August 21, 2006 - 6:00 am

H1: The big, military-inspired H1 has been dropped. Sales in 2005 totaled just 374 units.

H2, H2 SUT: With the demise of the H1, the biggest Hummer is the H2. The H2 will be restyled and re-engineered for the 2010 model year. It will be developed on the GMT900 full-sized-truck architecture. The smaller, lighter-weight vehicle is expected to start production in July 2009.

H3: Hummer's smallest SUV, built on GM's compact-pickup architecture, is likely to get a 5.3-liter V-8 version for the 2007 model year. A crew-cab version is likely for the 2009 model year.

H4: GM is considering a Jeep Wrangler-sized vehicle for the 2009 model year but must find a platform for it.

I can't be the only one that thinks that's going to take way too long.

Find a platform? What's wrong with a shortened Colorado platform? Like what a regular cab, short bed Colorado would use?

I kind of wonder if GM got the $3 per gas problem? No GM division noted smaller lighter better gas mileage vehicles, yet a Hummer H4 is mentioned.

That is what the H3 uses, it would be the same size.
