Hummer HX concept unveiled

Hummer may be struggling to stay afloat with rumours of GM shopping the brand around to potential buyers, but that isn’t stopping it from displaying this concept – the HX – at the British Motorshow.

The HX will be powered by a 3.6 litre V6 boasting E85 flex fuel abilities and is said to be the small ‘open’ version of North America’s most recognisable 4WD.

View the press release below.

HUMMER will showcase the HX Concept, a nimble, reconfigurable off-road concept vehicle, at the British International Motor Show.

HX Concept provides vision of a FlexFuel, open-air HUMMER

* Convertible body with removable roof panels, modular rear roof assembly, easily removable fender flares and doors
* Full-time 4WD with front and rear locking differentials
* Aeronautically inspired interior with functional, lightweight design elements
* 3.6L direct-injected V-6 E85 FlexFuel engine with six-speed automatic transmission

With unmistakable HUMMER design cues and a compact, go-anywhere attitude, the HX is an entry-level, open-air vehicle that packs the off-road acumen for which HUMMER has become legendary into an easily convertible body.

An open-air driving experience is made possible by a pair of removable roof panels above the driver and front passenger, and a modular, removable rear roof assembly. With all the roof panels removed, the HX is transformed into a true convertible. It can also be configured into an SUT, a stylish slant-back or a traditional, wagon-like design that offers a bit more cargo space. Doors and fender flares can also be quickly removed for additional fun and trail/rock clearance while off-road driving.

More compact than a HUMMER H3, the HX is 2,057 mm wide, with a 2,616-mm wheelbase. These compact dimensions, almost no overhangs and grippy 35-inch tires prepare the HX for driving on most any terrain. Like HUMMER production models, the HX has sturdy, body-on-frame construction, onto which is mounted front and rear independent suspensions. A full-time 4WD system can pull the HX over, through and around off-road obstacles. It transfers torque to the front and rear axles, each of which is equipped with a locking differential.
