General Motors is readying the Hummer H3T

Codenamed GMT745, the long-anticipated Hummer H3T was recently spotted, sporting a crew-cab configuration.

Although the original concept was a short-bed pickup with just two doors - economic decisions made the four-door H3 variant much more affordable to produce.

The short-bed, which can almost be described as "cute", will offer a cargo area of roughly 1200cm wide by about 1300cm long.

A hard tonneau cover will be available as an option, as will several choices of lockable cargo boxes.

The H3T's optional cargo boxes are expected to include a small lunchbox/toolbox with the ability to easily lift-off and take to your worksite.

Other boxes are likely to include cargo boxes that the whole length of the bed, as well as one which will run the width.

Engine options will include the new 218-kW V8 as first shown in the H3 Alpha, as well a 242-horsepower 3.7-liter I5 powerplant. H3T production is expected to start in August of 2008, and arrive in the third or forth quarter of 2008.

Since the H3 is also produced in South Africa, this model could find its way here too.
