Autotrader Find: Manual Transmission Hummer H3T Off-Roader

Although most off-roaders primarily find the “original” Hummer H1 to be the most appealing Hummer model, there’s another Hummer that’s enticing to enthusiasts: A manual transmission version of the H3T pickup, which is one of the rarest General Motors pickup truck models built in recent years.

For those who don’t remember the H3T, here’s a little background: The H3 was sold from 2006 to 2010 as a smaller, more affordable Hummer for people who didn’t want the bulk — or the cost — of the massive Hummer H1 and the slightly-less-massive-but-still-huge Hummer H2. As the H3 was based on the Chevy Colorado pickup truck, pickup-ifying it was apparently not so difficult, and so GM did exactly that: they created a crew-cab truck for the 2009 model year and dubbed it the H3T. Unfortunately, the Hummer brand was shuttered after the 2010 model year, so the H3T was made for just two years.

Even rarer than a “regular” H3T, however, is one with a manual transmission, which was offered in incredibly small numbers. This white H3T, which is offered by Country Buick GMC in Leesburg, Virginia, is exactly that: a stick-shift H3T. More importantly, it’s in great shape, with a lifted body, off-roader tires, roof-mounted trail lights and more. In other words, it’s a rare manual H3T in nice shape, and it’s ready to tackle the trails.

If you’re interested, Country Buick GMC is offering this 3-pedal H3T for $23,500, which seems in line with prices of other H3T models on Autotrader — all of which have held their value well, as off-roaders and SUVs have become more desirable since the Hummer brand closed down. Few, however, are as rare as this one.

  1. Funny enough, The military HMMWV’s (Humvee for you civvies lol) was never a stick shift, They are a hoot to drive and we may have floored them in the training areas and for some reason it felt terrifying with the harsh suspension and everything creaking and the engine sounding like it was about to have a heart attack.
    10/10 would Hum again.

    • I own a 5-cylinder, 5-speed H3T.  I joke that it’s the slowest car ever made.  It goes 0-60 in theory.  However, buying one and complaining about how slow it is is like buying a Corvette and complaining that you can’t go off-roading in it.

  2. I didn’t even know myself about the existence of a production version of the Hummer H3T until very recently. I remember the concept, which had a small two-door cabin and it was very reminiscent of the old military pick-up Humvees. Right behind the cab, it had tiny doors at the sides of the bed that also reminded the modular nature of the original Humvee.

    • I miss my HMMWV’s and FMTV 5 ton trucks, Both were a lot of fun to drive, The FMTV was shockingly comfortable since it is an Oshkosh truck, I would absolutely own one just to haul furniture in! And they are easy to drive even with the air brakes, We had a lot of fun in them with the back full of privates.
