GM Confirms H3 Details, "Alpha" HummersThe Hummer brand gets a new mid-size SUV based on the Chevrolet Colorado architecture in the 2006 model year, GM confirmed on Tuesday. Though no pictures were released, GM says the new Hummer will appear in the first half of next year and will sport a 3.5-liter five-cylinder engine of undisclosed power, manual or automatic gearboxes, electronically controlled four-wheel drive, traction control and stability control. GM also announced during its annual model-year media preview that Hummer would also get an "Alpha" performance lineup based on current vehicles, beginning with the 2006 H1 Alpha. The H1 Alpha gets a 6.6-liter Duramax turbodiesel engine with more power, improved emissions performance, and better fuel economy than today's H1, GM says.

Camry Sudden-Accel Investigation Closed
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has closed an investigation that studied whether the Toyota Camry and Lexus ES300 accelerated suddenly, out of driver control. While the agency said it will continue to monitor the vehicles in question for more reports, it concluded that no defect in the vehicles caused unintended acceleration. The NHTSA had received reports of 30 crashes that were deemed worthy of investigation. Vehicles from the 2002 and 2003 model years were studied.
