As if the all-plastic, cheap and nasty Hummer H3 was not enough, GM management has given the go ahead for a new one, the Hummer H4. Set to be smaller than the H3, the H4 will compete with the likes of the Jeep Wrangler.

The H4 is being prepared for a U.S. release in 2009. Depending on how H3 sales go in Australia, we could be victims of the H4 by 2010.

The idea is simple, use that big, army-style and unbreakable image, to sell lesser cars that are not only made out of cheap plastic, but provide no extra protection over a standard sedan, although we are told they do make you feel bigger…

In April GoAuto reported the possibility of a new ute and crew-cab variants for the H3.

    The RTA should use this vehicle in it’s “little weiner” marketing campaign, it’s a more appropriate use of the gesture.

    Lol I agree with no added protection, I want at the very least protection again anti-tank mines and small arms fire. Its true though they are just cashing in on its image (which isnt that great in the army n e way these days, Iraq has highlighted its many floors… Aussies are on the right thing with the ASLAVS – maybe make a production version of one of these 6 wheeled beasts lol?), they are ridiculously overpriced as well.

    Bring it on!!!!!

    An H4 for me, an H2 for my wife, and an H3 for my daughter.

    I have to have the little one, or I’ll be accused of having a small weenie.

    While i’m a big supporter of choice, this thing makes the Ssangyong Actyon look like a supercar.

    Personally I’ll be happy to see the H4 filled with C4 :)

    What next? A “Holden Cruse” Hummer H5?

    H1 h2 h3 h4 – 10 they will never be like original humvee that the army use, I have the original and you will never see me in any plastic hummer. The original goes anywhere even under water. its Awesome. the ultimate in 4wds GM should never have come out with this its H series.

    hmmm…. Paul, do you even know what the aslav is?
    It’s an APC so a completely different class to a hummer, so why compare, and the yanks have them too??!! And it’s not 6 wheeled, it’s 8×8… although the swiss who original designed them, have 6×6 versions too….
