2010 HUMMER H3 vs. Its Competition

2010 Hummer H3T
Nelson Ireson Nelson Ireson Senior Editor

The 2010 HUMMER H3 and H3T may make the competition look pale and girly, but in truth they're much more useful than the short-sided, expensive H3.

The Toyota and Nissan trucks and SUVs come with four-cylinder engines that are much more frugal, and they still sell rear-drive versions for the on-road enthusiasts in the buying pool.

The Jeep Wrangler comes close to matching the HUMMER H3's on-road feel, but two-door versions top the HUMMER on the trails.

Quick Specs
Even if you crave a red, white, and blue look in an SUV package, think twice before buying the cramped, thirsty HUMMER H3.
The 2010 Jeep Wrangler remains a choice like no other—and it's the only true convertible in which you can go off-roading.
The 2010 Nissan Frontier clearly isn't as large or capable as full-size trucks, but it offers enough toughness for personal use along with an especially good feature list.
If you have a lot of gear to haul to tough-to-reach places, the 2010 Nissan Xterra is a good choice for weekend adventurers.
The 2010 Toyota 4Runner is a brawny “true truck” worth serious consideration if tough off-roading capability for regular trail driving is one of your requirements—and it won’t sacrifice comfort the rest of the time.
The Tacoma is a workhorse truck that gives a little more space and capability than a true compact, yet offers decent fuel efficiency and a low price.
