Hummer is planning to unveil a trio of concept H3’s at SEMA to show how a few weekends of work and a host of HUMMER and GM accessories can turn a standard H3 into an off-road beast.

First up is the H3T Weekend Warrior concept which features 5.3L V-8 with an additional 70 hp over the production version, thanks to several products from GM Performance Parts. The new components include new cylinder heads, higher-lift camshaft, and a custom 3.5-inch exhaust system. Riding on 20-inch wheels fitted with BFGoodrich Baja T/A tires, the concept uses aftermarket suspension parts in order to tackle the worst trails a driver can throw at it. Other changes include custom Baja Orange Metallic paint, a host of HUMMER exterior accessories, and a black leather interior with orange accents.

The H3 X Concept has all the standard equipment from the production H3 X Alpha but adds unique 18-inch wheels, 35-inch-tall tires, black chrome exterior accents, a distinctive Canyon Metallic exterior with body color bumper accents, and clear turn signal lenses. Inside black leather with orange stitching match the custom floor mats, while rear seat passengers are treated to a headrest mounted DVD entertainment system.

The final H3 is a joint project between HUMMER and Four Wheeler Magazine called Trailhugger. It aims to increase the H3’s off-road capability, while retaining daily-driver comfort. In order to accomplish this, they fitted the vehicle with performance shocks, 16-inch wheels fitted with BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain tires, a roof rack, a wireless remote-operated perimeter lighting system, and a Warn winch. Under the hood is a 5.3L V-8, outfitted with a MagnaFlow exhaust system.
