Hummer Art - Wild West Style

In an odd twist to a vehicle more commonly seen sporting chrome 22s or a set of Spinners, artist Matthew Harrison today unveiled his latest project simply entitled ‘Hummer’ at the fifth Zoo Art Fair in London.   The Hummer H3, complete with wooden wagon wheels, will be parked opposite the Royal Academy of Arts for the duration of the fair...

Amid the turmoil of GM's American financial status, a brief glimmer of good news has come from part of the ongoing business and strategic review of the Hummer brand.

Hummer sales decline

Hummer sales have started to decline worldwide, leading to suggestions that GM might drop the brand altogether.

2008 Hummer HX Concept

General Motors has released official images of the Hummer HX Concept - actually they were apparently leaked, although that word is being used far too liberally lately.

Hummer H3R 7.0-litre V8

We said in our review of the Hummer H3 that it can really do with a little more power, but by a little more we meant maybe a 5.0-litre V8 or even a V6. But being American, General Motors has decided to fit a H3 with a 7.0-litre V8 from the Corvette Z06. Dubbed the Hummer H3R concept, the car is expected at the Detriot Motor Show early next year (and we will be there)...

HUMMER HX Concept - H4?

HUMMER has a dilemma - what will the next generation Hummer H1/2/3 look like?

Thankfully GM is well aware of this problem and plans to show off a Hummer concept at next year's North American International Auto Show...

Hummer H3T Ute (pickup)

Falcon and Commodore ute owners beware, if real men drive utes, then this beauty is going to be a massive ego boost. Seriously though, a Hummer Ute? We'd like to send a prize to whoever came up with this. The all-new HUMMER H3T is now a reality. Troy Clarke, GM Group Vice President and GM North America President today announced a $73-million investment in the company's Shreveport plant facility for the H3T...
