Many Americans find it difficult to believe that the military-inspired 2010 Hummer H3 offers a smooth, comfortable ride. Even when cruising through the most hair-raising of corners, the H3 delivers stability and confident performance. Responsive, firm steering reassures the driver; especially on highways, but not so much to be annoying in parking lots. And unlike the Humvee's that we see in the news each day, the new Hummer H3 offers plenty of amenities for comfort and convenience. Some of the many standard features include:
Since its inception, the Hummer has taken the attention from consumers worldwide. Its undeniable appeal strikes the imagination and inspires exploration. Exploration becomes all the more feasible when considering that the 2010 H3 Hummer delivers a solid 18 miles per gallon of petrol spent on the highways. In the cities, the EPA estimates that it will deliver 14 mpg. That's quite impressive considering that the H3's bigger brothers deliver only 10 or 11 mpg, even on the highways! With the new H3's 23-gallon fuel tank, you'll be able to travel well over 350 miles without refueling. Of course, it's always good to remember techniques for increasing fuel economy anyway.
Optional H3 2010 Hummer amenities include:
Transmission options for the 2010 H3 from Hummer include a 5-speed manual and a 4-speed automatic. There are two engine options available as well.

With the 5.3, you'll be able to tow up to 6000 pounds. All of the four trims of the H3 Hummer are four wheel-driven vehicles that require 18.5 feet of turning radius.
Suggested pricing for the 2010 Hummer H3 ranges from $33,390 up to $41,705. The H3 competes with major league class competitors including the Land Rover LR2, Volkswagen Touareg and the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class. It earned five of five stars for driver's side frontal crash test safety ratings from the NHTSA (four of five for the passenger side). It's classified as a 5-passenger midsized SUV, and of course, it is depended upon daily by its owners for its virtually unmatched offroad capabilities. It accelerates quickly and easily pulls heavy loads. It also pimps out quite nicely. Explore the new Hummer H3 up close and in person soon to appreciate the full level of its conquering nature.
