From the spies at:

GM confirmed today that the HUMMER H3T pickup truck will arrive at dealer lots sometime during Q3 of 2008. To prepare for the newest expansion of HUMMER's model lineup, the General is investing $73 million in the Shreveport, LA assembly facility where the H3T will be built. In the press release included after the jump, GM was mum on specifics related to the H3T, saying only that it will be positioned between its current mid- and full-size truck offerings. The photo above depicts the 2003 H3T Concept, but based on the spy shots that have surfaced over the last year, look for the the production vehicle to adopt a crew cab 4-door configuration. We expect to see both the standard-issue I5 and the H3 Alpha's 5.3L V8 available underhood.

A quad cab, Alpha powered HT3 actually sounds interesting to me as a potential to take the place of one of my Jeeps in the car corral. I was looking at a Ridgeline for next summer'ish, however, I might wait to see how this turns out.

Looks like it will cost $35-40K. I gotta believe Viagra would be a much cheaper solution for most buyers. :)

i dont get this hummer craze for the past few years. at first i thought the ugly oversized H2 hummer was a compensation for somthign else:lildevil: , but then they made the uglier, more cheaply constructed H3 with 5 cylenders, now they make a H3 truck and people still want it. come on people, just by a explorer or a regular pickup if you need a SUV or carrying room.

What a waste of money. The only good hummer is the original military H1 version, or the one a girl gives you. :laughing:

HMR magazine drives the HUMMER H3T mule - Autoblog

Autoblog.com said:
The HUMMER H3T has been much in the news lately, now we finally have some press coverage that doesn't involve broken embargoes. After a few days in the High Sierras putting pre-production versions through boulder-strewn paces, the words from HMR magazine are: it's good!

Once past the marketing-speak -- like "With its unique size and HUMMER traits, the H3T is ideal for the customer who works hard and plays harder" -- the H3T with the Adventure Package put in a proper HUMMER showing: the 5-foot bed hasn't killed the truck's departure angle, the length hasn't ruined its agility, and it even got in the obligatory Jeep smackdown encounter. The H3T also has 160 official aftermarket partners creating a glutton's range of branded accessories.

The public will find out if it's really the lion's roar when it shows up on dealer lots in September. Until then, click the link to get the full review, and Autoblog will bring up the up-close and personal from its debut at next week's Chicago Auto Show.
