2008 Hummer H3 Overview

The 2008 Hummer H3 boasts great off-road capability, but mediocre highway performance means it ranks in the bottom half of its competitive class. The H3 "may be the baby bear of its clan," says Motor Week, "but it has all the DNA of the original. Indeed, we think it is just right." New for 2008 is the Alpha trim level, which comes with a V8 engine and the H3's luxury package. The H3 line also gets more standard safety equipment, including head-curtain side air bags and electronic stability control. Though the H3 is the least expensive of the Hummers, its sticker price still commands a premium. Plus, the new Alpha costs about $8,500 more than the base H3. Though it may be worth the price for serious off-road driving enthusiasts, the H3 only ranks in the bottom half of its class when compared to other off-road SUVs.

In addition to the new performance-minded Alpha, the Hummer H3 is available as a base model (with the optional Adventure and Luxury packages) or as the H3x.

  • "Plenty of room for the family and your stuff, a great off-road pedigree, and improved on-road performance comfort make the 2008 H3 Alpha one to definitely consider." -- RockCrawler.com
  • "Going off-road? The H3 is a buy." -- Washington Post
  • "The H3 Alpha is smooth, quiet and comfortable. It's also an ego machine that guzzles gas and is about the size of Liechtenstein. If you can afford the constant fuel bills and have a large parking space, it's the best Hummer yet." -- New York Times
