2008 Hummer H3 Alpha gets V8
The Hummer H3 has alwaysÂ beenÂ criticisedÂ forÂ itsÂ weakÂ inline-5 engine.Â ButÂ theÂ GeneralÂ isÂ setÂ toÂ changeÂ thatÂ withÂ theÂ launchÂ ofÂ theÂ 2008 H3Â Alpha,Â packingÂ aÂ 5.3-litreÂ V8Â underÂ theÂ hood.
The small-block V8 offers 295 hp and 429Â Nm of torque, compared to the existingÂ engine’sÂ 242Â hp and 328 Nm of torque. The H3 Alpha’s cabin remains unchanged except for an “Alpha” badge on the steering wheel. The H3 Luxury Package is standard equipment, as well as a silver-painted lower front bumper for all 2008 models.
