Hummer Used Cars- A Review On The Hummer H3


The hummer was developed by AM General as a multi-purpose vehicle that made its debut in the first Gulf War. Hummer used cars have been a very popular vehicle to own every since Operation Desert Storm, so AM General decided to sell a version of its military Hummer and called it the H1. They started production in 1992. Then General Motors in 1998 bought the Hummer brand from AM General and then brought the H2 to market.

In 2006 General Motors decide to develop an even lighter version of the Hummer and called it the H3. This design was based on the GMC Canyon pickup truck. The H3 uses the same 3.5 litre, five cylinder engine as the GMC canyon does. It has a 220 horsepower engine with 225 pounds-ft of torque; it can come either in a four-speed manual or a five-speed automatic transmission. In 2007 General Motors upgraded the engine to a 3.7 litre, 242 horsepower engine with 242 pounds-ft of torque. Then 2008 General Motors went back to the drawing board and came up with an even more powerful H3. Its solution was the H3 Alpha model; this vehicle would now have a 5.3 litre V8, 300 horsepower engine with 320 pounds-ft of torque. This was only offered in a four-speed automatic transmission. Hummer used cars from 2009 now had the H3T added to the brand. This was a four door, crew cab, pick-up truck with a five foot bed; this also came with the V8 engine.

The Hummer H3 in 2006 had a fuel consumption of 14 miles per gallon for city driving and 11 miles per gallon for highway driving with the automatic transmission. And with the manual transmission it had 15 miles per gallon for city driving and for highway it was 10 miles per gallon. In 2007 when the H3 changed to the 3.7 litre engine, the fuel consumption went up. With the automatic transmission city driving was 15 miles per gallon and highway driving was 16 miles per gallon under the manual transmission. In 2008 with the new 5.3 litre engine, you had 16 miles per gallon for city driving. The 2009 H3 with its five cylinder engine helped to improve the fuel consumption to 14 miles per gallon for city driving and 15 miles per gallon for highway driving.
