2006 Hummer H3
The Hummer H3 is an off-road vehicle that was produced from 2005 to
2010 by General Motors. The smallest model of the Hummer lineup, it
was offered as a 5-door SUV or a 4-door pickup truck known as the
H3T. Unlike the larger H1 and H2 models, the H3 was not developed
by AM General. It was introduced for the 2006 model year, based on
a modified GMT355 that underpinned the Chevrolet Colorado/GMC
Canyon compact pickup trucks that were also built at GM's
Shreveport Operations in Shreveport, Louisiana and the Port
Elizabeth plant in South Africa.
For consignment, a smaller more manageable version of the Hummer
showing as a Hummer H3 from 2006. This is its first year of
introduction, and shows nicely as a well cared for and maintained
road or off road vehicle. It has new tires, a new battery and
sports several convenience options such as power steering, power
windows, power locksand a power sunroof. It also has some nifty
roof lighting to hunt down prey at night. A Jeep on steroids with
the mystique of being a Hummer, (ya know, former military and takes
no prisoners kinda vehicle!).
A nice coat of Gray Bronze baths the exterior panels of this truck.
All gaps are well minded and as to the look, it takes from the Jeep
but makes it look more like an armored 4x4 due to its smaller
tinted windows, squared off smaller fenders, and wide black
bumpers. This truck has a light kit installed on the roof and some
more black accenting is seen here as well, and it goes nicely with
the Gray Bronze. Heavy looking doors and a high stance with its
squared off wheel wells allows this vehicle to go through water up
to 27 inches deep @ 5MPH. Black tubular running board/step ups are
on either side and make entry just a bit easier. On the back is a
large tailgate with more tinted glass, and an exterior mounted
spare. Another large black bumper frames the bottom. 16-inch GM
special to Hummer wheels are all around and these are covered in
265/75R15's all from the 19th week of 2021.
With its thick bulletproof look on the exterior, the interior takes
on a softer look, made for the comfort one would expect on a high
end Hummer. The door panels are black molded plastic with molded
armrests, power window and door locks, and a power mirror toggle.
Inside to the seats where we note front high back buckets covered
in charcoal gray broadcloth for the bolsters and dark gray for the
inserts with some white stitching throughout the inserts. The
driver's seat shows some slight wear. In back is a full bench with
a center jump seat that can double as an armrest and it utilizes
the same pattern as the front buckets. In the center of the buckets
is a molded console also in gray . It has an armrest/storage bin,
cupholders and the shifter. This melts nicely into the center of
the dash which sports an aluminum plate behind the large round
climate controls and digital radio above. Just above this is a
lineup of buttons which is your 4x4 control mode center. The dash
in front of the driver is under a rectangular hood and has analog
sweep gauges in the round with smaller fuel and temp gauges in the
center. A digital readout panel is in the center. The factory
steering wheel is fronting the dash. Gray carpeting covers all the
floors even in the back seating area. Above a power sunroof can be
noted. The cargo bay area is lined with tough molded ribbed plastic
and the 60/40 back seats can be folded down for more room for
Under the vented hood sits a 3.5 liter 5 cylinder engine putting
out 220hp. It has EFI, and a 4L60E 4-speed automatic transmission.
Turning the tires are 4.10 geared axles. Lots of plastic coverings
and all very clean under here.
A peppering of surface rust is noted and heavier variety is noted
on the back mounting of the rear leaf springs and frame. Some
rubber bushings in this area appear dry rotted, and some of the
heavier rust is noted on various areas underneath. The truck uses
independent torsion bars for the front suspension, and leaf springs
for the rear. Power disc brake casings show some heavier rust and
are on all 4 corners.
This military grade truck fired right up and off to the test track
I went. It ran smoothly, had smooth shifting and easy steering. All
functions were working at the time of my test drive with the
exception of a pesky tire pressure light. Our consignor notes that
this is caused by the rubber valve stems.
A neat little 4x4 that looks larger than life and exudes a high end
bulletproof feel for the design, but is more at home on the
suburban roads. Nice exterior paint, slightly worn interior, and
surface rust on the undercarriage. All in all well maintained and
ready to go to war when the sh*t comes down.
