Hummer HX

The Hummer HX is a concept SUV revealed on 8 January 2008 and manufactured by General Motors.The vehicle is smaller than both the H2 and H3 and is powered by a 3.6 L (≈220 cu in) SIDI V6 that uses E85 FlexFuel.
More compact than a HUMMER H3 – 81 inches (2,057 mm) wide, with a 103-inch wheelbase (2,616-mm) – the HX concept is an open-air, two-door off-road vehicle. Its design is based on the ideas developed by a trio of young designers who are new to the HUMMER studio.The HX has a pair of removable roof panels above the driver and front passenger, and a modular, removable rear roof assembly.The HX also was designed with several roof assemblies, allowing it to be configured as an SUT (with the roof assembly removed), a stylish slant-back or a traditional, wagon-like design that offers a bit more cargo space.The HX was shown with a slant-back configuration, wearing a desert-inspired matte olive paint scheme, at the North American International Auto Show. Additional convertible features include:
Removable doors – easily removable pins in the exposed hinges allow the doors to be removed quickly – an appreciated feature of many serious off-roaders
Removable fender flares – attached with quarter-turn quick-release fasteners, the composite fender flares can be quickly removed for additional trail/rock clearance, or if the flare is damaged during off-road driving
The vehicle will be featured in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
