Mid-sized Hummer H3 to go on sale next year

General Motors Corp. is readying production of the third Hummer model, the mid-size H3. Smaller than the H2, the upcoming H3 debuts next year as a 2006 model. The H3, which was previewed earlier this year at the Los Angeles auto show, shares its underpinnings with the Chevrolet Colorado pickup. It reportedly will be powered by a twin-cam 3.5-liter inline five-cylinder engine. The four-door SUV will feature oversize, all-terrain tires and standard four-wheel drive. Styling is reminiscent of the rest of the Hummer family, with specific cues - notably the trademark chrome vertical-bar grille - borrowed from the H2.

Even more pictures and information:
The 2005 H3 will be powered by a straight six, and will be priced nearly $75,000 less than the H1, and $15,000-$20,000 less than the $50,000 H2. The H3 should be a relative bargain at the $30,000-$35,000 range when it arrives at dealerships in mid-2005.
