    Being an owner of the H3.. I usually read the news on hummerguy.net

    Earlier this month he posted that the Concept Hummer HX (H4) was spotted on set of Transformers 2 along with the Hummer H3 while shooting in Bethlehem, PA. When spotted back in March.. HISSTANK.com thought this to be apart of the new G.I Joe movie when it was actually the set of Transformers 2. The vehicles will be know in Transformers 2 as the Cougar (Patrol Vehicle) or the Grizzly (Armored Truck). See images of it below. :) 

    Hopefully they make an Alt/binaltech of the H3 :) 

    Heres the original Story Link

    If there's one "car" that symbolises all that is wrong with the world in these days of globally recognised climate change it's the Hummer.

    Now does the fact that I think it makes for a cool alt-mode on a TF make me a hypocrite? ;-)

    I heard Hummer was rapidly sinking these days, what with fuel prices being the way they are.
    They're cool but only really belong in movies and actual deserts.

    I rememeber in Top Gear (a UK motor show) the Hummer they reviewed could only manage 1 mile to the gallon.

    LOLOLOLOL. I wouldn't want a Hummer in the desert. I'd be stranded halfway across, and die a long painful death of thirst.

    Having said that, the Hummer concept does look awesome, wonder what the bot mode looks like...

    1mpg! Bloody hell, that's insane. I thought about 6-8mpg was the worst it could get for a mass produced consumer vehicle.

    I think it may have actually been doing gallons to the mile at one point. Does look cool though. Badly needs a decent diesel engine to be remotely viable these days.

    I get 16mpg with my H3. The HX looks great, I'm just wondering if it's still on the table as a future release by GM (probably not, as they're looking to sell the line).

    Given that the Model T did around 25 mpg its shocking how progress has been held back on the petrol engine. God bless Big Oil and their power to hold back science.

    i think chevy should drop a v6 hybrid engine, or ecotek motors in their future h3's and hx (if it is to be mass produced) for that brand to succeed. i really like the look of the hummers, but maintenence alone looks to be too expensive for me.

    Hardly "global recognized". I, and plenty other people, know it's a buncha hooey. Just another way the government tries to regulate what we can and can't do. Hummers are awesome, I say if you have the money go for it.

    Sorry, I'll add some caveats to my original statement: "Globally recognised" by the majority of meteorological scientists, the CEO of Shell (in who's interests it is not to recognise it BTW) and by various environmental groups and aid agencies who are starting to see the physical proof. NOT "globally recognised" by some Murdoch-led news outlets or by many politicians in who's financial interests it sits not to recognise it. Hell, up until about a year ago even Bush was saying that it wasn't an issue and even he has been forced to change his tune because of growing unequivocal evidence.

    Climate change is NOT an issue that many scientists currently debate (though there is some debate on exactly HOW BAD things are going to get) and yet your average Fox News viewer somehow thinks they know better. Stupid Fox News.

    I won’t say that some opportunist government ideas haven’t come from it (a recent green tax in the UK on people who own older cars falls under that) but that in no way disproves that the issue is real.

    The Hummer is a dead and dying brand. Its gasping for its last breaths of air. The H1 died. The H2 is set to die. They rolled out the H3. And now they might even go smaller with the HX/H4. Its really pathetic. GM even talked about selling the brand off. Who would want to attach their name to such a failure?

    QFT.

    ***EDIT***

    That is totally uncalled for and will not be tolerated.

    Even if climate change doesn't convince you, I don't see much getting around the reality of peak oil. We're burning through the inheritance of hundreds of millions of years in little over a century. It's delusional to think there's somehow an infinite supply.

    Oil is great stuff, and we shouldn't squander it.

    well, I think it's a question of science rather than politics, but fair enough, that's the end of that.

    With it's matte paintjob, the Hummer in the pictures feels like a potential Decepticon to me. If it weren't for the previous movie toyline and videogame character, I'd say it might make a decent Swindle.

    It wouldn't be a summer blockbuster without product placement, and Bay will sing the praises of the Dummer to the tune of "cash".

    There are many characters it could be, if the vehicle will be featured in the film.
