Four Wheeler Magazine has named their top choices for 2009, and the all new HUMMER H3T is topping the pickup truck list. The 2009 H3T was up against the Dodge Ram, the Ford F-150, and the Suzuki Equator. In order to qualify for the award, the model had to be completely new or substantially changed from a previous model year, and come equipped with a two-speed transfer case.
“The competition this year was fierce, with any of the four competitors capable of taking home the trophy, but in the end, it was the Hummer H3T that emerged from the dust as our 2009 Pickup Truck of the Year,” said Four Wheeler Technical Editor, Sean P. Holman. “Not only was the Hummer highly competent and the staff favorite on the trail, it also has the added pluses of on-road comfort, distinctive looks, and a usable pickup bed. Hummer has done its research to provide the four-wheeling enthusiast with a vehicle that has been designed around their needs from the beginning, rather than offering an off-road version of an existing product and it shows in the final product. Congratulations to Hummer’s 2009 H3T, our Pickup Truck of the Year.”
You may remember that the 2008 HUMMER H3 Alpha won the overall ‘Four Wheeler of the Year’ award in 2007, so congrats to the 2009 HUMMER H3T for carrying on the winning tradition!
