2008 Hummer H3 Alpha Side
The “Texas Auto Writers” recently held their annual truck rodeo, where this year they gathered 50 members of the media to judge over 60 different trucks. Among the numerous awards to GM, the Hummer H3 Alpha fared pretty well – It won the category of “Mid Size SUV,” beating out the Nissan Pathfinder and Jeep Liberty Sport 4×4 who placed 2nd and 3rd respectively. The H3 Alpha also placed third in the overall “SUV of Texas” category behind the Chevy Tahoe Hybrid and Toyota Landcruiser.

This year was GMs strongest showing at the truck rodeo, receiving first place finishes in both the SUV of Texas (Tahoe Hybrid) and Truck Line of Texas (GM), and placed either 2nd or 3rd in all other major categories. In all categories entered, GM placed in the top 3 in all but one category – not bad! The results are below – and is anyone else surprised that under “best feature” the Ford’s tailgate step beat out the Tahoe’s new 2 mode Hybrid system? God Bless Texas…
