Hummer H3 original concept alternate

Recommended Posts

Was searching Google this past weekend for some Canyon information and stumbled upon this site: http://www.slideshare.net/mobile/JonAlbert1/veh-des-portfolio-v3

In the shared slide show presentation, one of the designers of the 2004 Canyon/Colorado shared some design history of that generation of the smaller pickups. He also worked on the Hummer H3 program which included these original designs for the H3.

Warning: if you're not a fan of the Aztek, you may be disturbed by the picture shared here and more on that site :lol:

I'm glad they ended up with the design that was produced! This Aztek-inspired look, IMO, would not have been as admired. Check out the link above for more information.

Very cool stuff, so glad you found this. I know I am a minority with my love for Hummer. :D

Nah, you're not alone.  I was a fan of the Hummer by GM.  Still wish it was a derivative of the GMC lineup, but that's water under the bridge now.

 

What Hummer got right:

GMC needs to build the Hx NOW as a special package for GMC. This would give the Wrangler a solid competition and many myself included would love it with the Baby 2.9L duramax diesel.
