2009 Hummmer H3T Weekend Warrior

New Hummer CEO James Taylor calls the brand's concepts -- the Weekend Warrior -- "thought starters for enthusiasts who want to express themselves," as both primarily use factory accessories and aftermarket parts to show what can be done to the rugged haulers with "a few weekends in the garage." Based on a H3T Alpha, the Weekend Warrior concept includes several GM Performance parts that give its 5.3L, 300-hp V-8 an additional 70 hp, including LS2 cylinder heads, a higher-lift camshaft, and a 3.5-in. exhaust system. For truly Baja-worthy handling, the Weekend Warrior also receives several suspension components including as Light Racing JounceShocks, high-performance brakes from DBA, and 35-in.-tall tires on special matte-black 20-in. wheels from Hummer's own accessory catalog.

Of course, no SEMA showcar is complete without a major dose of bling, so the H3T Weekend Warrior also comes with custom Baja Orange Metallic paint, a body-color upper grille, and custom hood graphics. In addition, the lower grille, side mirrors, door handles, and fuel door all sport a satin-metal finish, and off-road lamps are mounted on the grille and roof. Most of these upgrades are standard Hummer accessories; however, the black-leather-trimmed cabin with orange stitching and carbon-fiber instrument panel accents are not.
