Have you seen the new Hummer H3T Truck?

I must have missed this. IFS though!

Sounds like they tried to make it a real 4x4.

I like the little door into the side of the bed. That's a good idea.

Re: Have you seen the new Hummer H3T Truck?

Being a fan of the H2, yes I know people express pure hatred for it, but I like it. I don't care if its underpinnings are Tahoe..I like it. Plus it gets the same dang gas mileage as my <nobr>Durango</nobr>. Besides that, I too like this h3 <nobr>pickup</nobr>. It's based on the <nobr>Chevy</nobr> Colorado/GMC Canyon. Those tires are ugly, but they have a red stripe for a point. If you look in bigger pictures of them, they resemble a sneaker bottom. Thats because those tires were designed by no other than Nike. Yup they're Nike tires. Which will almost definately not make it to production, but for a show <nobr>vehicle</nobr> they wanted to really push towards the "sporting use" of this vehicle.

Edit* Sorry after I looked at teh post and responded, I went to article and basically told you guys what you already knew. I was just repeating what I read in Truck Trend.

the bed door idea has been around since the sixties but these were even more functional they were actually loading ramps

Re: Have you seen the new Hummer H3T Truck?

Yeah, when I posted that I was thinking of the corvair you posted the picture of, but in that case it helps compensate for the huge liftover on the tailgate. Its also a damn good idea.

On the H3 its obviously supposed to be a door. I think pickup truck beds get used for a lot of recreational purposes besides hauling stuff and a simple door to get in and out (with a step right below it) is an idea that would probably catch on in pickups that are more oriented to sport and fun than hauling stuff.
