Had a Hummer H2 SUT and loved it. Would go anywhere and was fun to drive on all terrain. Glad I was able to sell it though.

I'm still pissed that I'll never see the HX come to fruition. :\

I'd put chips down saying that some Hummer design themes/ideas will filter into GMC to differentiate it from Chevy's truck offerings.

Kinda ending up as a brand pyramid; Chevy as the base, Buick handling mid ritzy cars and GMC handling the expensive truck/toys (Jeep), and Caddy duking it out with Mercedes and the like.

I'd actually like to see GMC go the Jeep route..

Support MC.com peoples.. $9 bucks. Timmy needs to get that wheelchair into the 10s!

Probably will never happen. GMC has almost always been just a rebadged Chevy.
