During the HUMMER H3T demonstration run in Moab this week, PickupTruck.com’s Mike Levine learned that the H3 family will be getting an upgraded base engine. GM’s 3.6L, flex-fuel V6 will replace the 3.7L in-line 5 cylinder as the standard HUMMER H3 engine. No specific timeline was given, but since HUMMER has declared an all-bio-fuel friendly lineup by 2010, we’re going with that model year!
HUMMER was also talking power-trains at the New York Auto Show this week — Autoblog helped confirm the North American HUMMER H3 will receive a diesel engine in the future. Martin Walsh hinted to us in Chicago that a diesel was destined for the U.S., and now we have further confirmation. An exact timeline wasn’t given, but we expect it model year 2011 or later – we’d LIKE it model year 2010!
