Ho-Hum, It's Another Hummer (Truck?) 5With Hummer, it’s all or none. You’re a fan or not. There’s no middle ground. I’m in the latter category. I don’t understand the popularity of the extreme vehicles. But the unique vehicles have a loyal following, and that following will soon expand.

Hummer will enter the competitive pick-up truck market beginning in early February when the manufacturer’s 2009 H3T pick-up truck is unveiled at the Chicago Auto Show.

The Hummer H3T is a ‘three-quarter’ truck, slightly bigger than a midsize truck and somewhat smaller than a full-size truck.

Martin Walsh, Hummer general manager said: “It offers the combination of truck versatility and Hummers off-road prowess that delivers customers to the trail in style.”

Besides the usual Hummer design, the H3T features a five-foot truck bed, seats five and can tow up to 5,900 pounds with either a Vortec 3.7L I-5 (242 horsepower) or 5.3 liter V8 engine (300 horsepower).

Production is expected to begin this fall. The new truck’s price has not been announced.

But for me, the price doesn’t matter. Ho-hum, another Hummer.
