For the launch of the H3 V8 a limited edition has been produced, the Granite Edition. Only one hundred vehicles will be painted in the special Granite Black metallic colour

Limited Granite Edition

Hummer has a few plans for Europe in 2008, first and foremost the introduction of a new V8 engine. This 5.3 liter V8 produces 225 kW (305 hp) with 432 Nm of torque and will propel the H3 from stand still to 100 km/h in 8.2 seconds. Maybe not a super car time but if you consider the size of the car it is kind of impressive. Fuel consumption also manages to drop from 14.6 liter per 100 km to 14.5 liter.

In order to celebrate the coming of the V8 engine, Hummer Europe will paint 100 H3's in a special Granite Black color. The Hummer V8 Granite Edition will be in dealership following the Geneva Motor Show.

Overall the Hummer H3 sees some minor tweaks for the 2008 model year, three new body colors, the alloy wheels have a new lacquer finish and the front bumper, grille and underbody protection have been slightly redesigned.
