HUMMER H3 E85

Hummer created the 2007 H3, a midsize SUV that is powered by a 5.3-liter V8 engine. E85 is an ethanol-based fuel made from domestically produced renewable resources. The GM specialists decided to create the H3 E85 to demonstrate that an alternative fuel vehicle can combine with stylish design for a unique SUV. The designers tried to make the exterior smooth including the addition of a body color rear spare tire cover. The suspension was dropped 2-inches to lower the profile. On the inside it features a lot of parts covered in leather upholstery. It features four-wheel disc brakes with ABS, sterling silver accents, chrome door handles, mirror caps, hood louvers and fuel door from Hummer Accessories.

The 2007 HUMMER H3 is a highly versatile midsize SUV and the addition of an E85-capable 5.3L V-8 increases its versatility.

GM engineers developed the H3 E85 FlexFuel to demonstrate that an alternative fuel vehicle can combine with stylish design for a unique, forward-thinking SUV. To highlight the H3 E85's alternative intentions, designers focused on making the H3 exterior smooth and streamlined, including the addition of a body color rear spare tire cover.
