This vehicle is a bit of a lightning rod for both smiling nods of approval and vicious insults. To be frank, it’s not particularly deserving of either of these.
Despite it’s resemblance to the hulking H2, the H3 has much more in common with a typical family SUV than an Abrams Tank. It is, however, highly off-road capable.
The H3 has got plenty of wheel travel, impressive approach and departure angles, and skid plates to keep the boulders out of the engine compartment. Even with the inline 5-cylinder engine, it can power through off road obstacles with ease. On the road, however, you may wish you had another cylinder (or 3).
Exterior styling is either up your alley or its not. It does have a roof rack, relatively decent fuel economy, and styling that screams “apocalypse ready.”
The downsides to the H3 are the considerable curb weight and surprisingly little cargo space. If you have a family of 4 and a Labrador Retriever, it may be a little cramped in a bug-out situation.
