It reminds me of the Jeep Jeepster concept (which was awesomely cool). This looks just kinda stupid. Eh.

if this is gonna b a convertible truck and if this is actually a real thing, then gm should look at the sucess of the chevy ssr and build on what they had mistaken on.

That license plate seems to read H2, not Hx. Is anyone else reminded of an International Scout when looking at this drawing?

So does that make it the most likely candidateor the least likelyfor a new product outside its realm of expertise? And how would that translate?<p>How about a dune buggy? Id love one, Hummer general manager Susan Docherty told AutoWeek. Ive never seen one [inside GM], but Id love one [for the product lineup].<p>It would absolutely be a small, open-top trucklet for the beach, she said. Hummer is not something somebody needs, its something people want. Its a third or fourth vehicle in a household. We have to be careful how we build<br>on that.<p>Hummer stands for iconic design and mountain-goat-like off-road ability, Docherty said. I cant make it everything to everybody. It has to be fun and daring. A four-door sedan wont work. A sports car wont work.<p>Understanding that, what is at the top of Dochertys wish list? She smiles and says, I want a pickup truck and something smaller than the H3.<p></TD></TR></TABLE><br>source: autoweek<p><IMG SRC="http://www.autoweek.com/images/articles/102319" BORDER="0"><br>autoweek

The fourth Hummer could be on sale by 2008 or 2009.<p>A GM source confirms the company is looking for ways of making a small Hummer on its various sport/utility vehicle and pickup platforms. GM engineers and designers are working on the project, but a chassis for the vehicle has yet to be selected. One possibility is a two-seater, focused on the most rugged off-roading possible, similar to the Hummer dune buggy we illustrated earlier this year (A Hummer Buggy, May 9).<p>Its a matter of finding the right combination of rugged components and how we can package them into a vehicle smaller than the H3, says the source. The main design factor is that any vehicle with a Hummer badge has to be the most capable off-road, period.<p>One possibility is to use a shortened version of GMs small pickup platform, which underpins the new H3.<p>GM product czar Bob Lutz is believed to be a big supporter of the H4, and as a former boss of Jeep he knows the competition intimately.<p>Hummer is also unlikely to launch a second range of soft-roaders, a move that Jeep is taking to exploit sales with owners who dont need its Trail Tested off-road abilities.<p>Its not the right time to be rounding off the corners of the Hummer range yet, our source says.</TD></TR></TABLE>

Add this Hummer to the Wrangler and Toyota FJ40 and you have a crowded niche segment IMO....<p>I would do a small Rav4 Hummer with fuel efficiency (or small turbo Diesel) and that would really sell in the US as well as internationally IMO <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/ylsuper.gif" BORDER="0">
