Its design - more a targa than a true convertible - is based on the ideas developed by a trio of young designers who are new to the Hummer studio. "The HX is Hummer's vision of an agile, trail ready, open air vehicle that fits the lifestyles of everyone who needs or wants to drive off road," said Martin Walsh, Hummer general manager. "Of course, it carries exceptional off-road capability and the distinctive styling for which all Hummers are known."
The HX offers an open air driving experience via a pair of removable roof panels above the driver and front passenger, and a modular, removable rear roof assembly. With the roof panels and roof assembly removed, the HX is transformed into a true convertible. With its compact dimensions, almost no overhangs and grippy 35-inch tyres, the HX is ready for all terrains. A full time 4WD system pulls the HX over, through and around off-road obstacles. It transfers torque to the front and rear axles, each of which is equipped with a locking differential.
