Are you familiar with these names - AM General, General Motors, Hum-Vee and Hummer H3? Yes you got it right; each of these names has something to do with one another. The AM General is an American heavy vehicles manufacturer that developed the famous military High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle or better known as Hum-Vee. Several years later, the Hum-Vee concept was modified to come up with its civilian version intended for public use called H3 and were sold under the Hummer brand name.

The H3 is a 4WD conventional mid-size SUV that was introduced in 2005. Its GMT345 platform came from the GMT 355 that fortifies Chevrolet's Colorado and GMC's Canyon pickup trucks.
