Every HUMMER H3 and H3T comes with power windows, locks, and mirrors; air conditioning; cruise control; an AM/FM/XM/CD player; and Bluetooth. GM offers a navigation system as an option, along with a rear-seat entertainment system, leather trim, and pickup-only features like a bedrail accessory kit. Locking differentials are optional, too, in case your H3 is headed off-road, and HUMMER provides a range of off-road accessories if you're so inclined.
HUMMER's a flashpoint for controversy. It's a brand so reviled by tree huggers, its dealerships have been firebombed. Of course, that's a badge of honor to its die-hard fans, who'll gladly give up their HUMMERs-and you can pry them from their cold, dead hands. The partisanship blurs the big issue with the small HUMMERs. Even if you're politically inclined to love them, the H3 pickup and SUV just aren't good enough at their everyday missions to recommend them over more useful utility vehicles like the Nissan Frontier and Xterra, our favorites in this class, or even a Jeep Wrangler if you want your jingoism minus the "Mission Accomplished" aftertaste.
