Hummer Sale Pending: H3 to Continue

Hummerh3 This morning, GM announced it had a tentative agreement to sell its Hummer brand and keep nearly 3,000 U.S. jobs in place, including at the dealership level. The buyer and the sale price weren’t disclosed, but GM did say it would work as a contract partner during the transition, as we've previously reported.

They also confirmed that the Hummer H3 and H3 SUT would continue production during this transitional period.

While Hummer has lost its luster in the U.S., GM stressed that the sale would expand the brand's global reach.



I wonder if a tractor company is interested in it? Who else would want the albatross?

The New York Times reports that a Chinese firm is the purchaser.

H2 is gone the way of H1, no one wants vehicles with V8 engine.
The new company can still sell H3 by making these changes.

Redesign it as a CUV
Apply V4 engine
Reduce length by 6 inches.
Make it 6-Seater (3 seats in front and 3 in back).

Remove that H3-SUT.
Now it will sell well.


I'm fairly young so correct me if I'm wrong but I don't know of any car ever produced that has/had a V4 engine. . .
