2008 Hummer H3x

Smaller, But Still Big

The 2008 Hummer H3x going off-road

In short: A rugged, multi-purpose SUV.

Smaller than its H2 counterpart, this SUV is still a huge vehicle capable of maneuvering over uneven ground during off-road adventures. Its decreased size and price make it a much more reasonable option for the everyday driver. A 3.7L inline 5-cylinder engine, front and rear stabilizer bar and traction control system mean the H3x can handle steep inclines and craggy terrain. Front and rear head curtain side air bags, emergency brake assist and tire pressure monitoring mean it's also equipped to get everyone on board home safely.

Warranty/Service: 4-Year/50,000 Mile Limited Warranty; 6-year/100,000 mile corrosion protection warranty.

Base Price: $38,135 /As tested: $44,890
