2006 Hummer H3
|HUMMER owners value the
inherent strength and feeling of security their trucks exude. The
H3 fulfills that promise with available features such as Stabilitrak
vehicle stability control, roof rail-mounted side curtain air bags,
rollover protection system, tire pressure monitoring and stout vehicle
structure projected to earn five-star safety ratings for both the
driver and passenger in front and side impacts.
|The H3 incorporates structural
enhancements designed to help in crash protection as well as a number
of advanced safety systems to assist in both crash avoidance and protection.
A reinforced passenger compartment safety cage helps provide protection
against side and front impacts. The strong, rigid steel structure
surrounds the passenger compartment, runs from the A-pillars to the
roof rail, back to the D-pillars and includes the bottom rocker panels,
under-floor longitudinals and frame. The all-steel body panels and
exceptionally strong frame further protect occupants in a collision.
The fully welded, ladder-type frame optimizes crash performance, in
addition to standing up to rigorous off-road requirements.
|Additional crash protection
is provided by a standard frontal dual-stage air bag system. The H3
has GM's Passenger Sensing System, which uses weight-sensing technology
to turn the front passenger air bag on or off as appropriate. If the
sensor system detects an unoccupied front passenger seat or the presence
of a smaller occupant, the front passenger air bag is designed to
automatically turn off so it would not deploy in the event of a frontal
collision. Even with this system, GM strongly recommends to restrain
child passengers in an appropriate child seat placed in the second
or third row of the vehicle.
side curtain air bags drop all the way down to the belt line to help
provide head and rollover protection for the driver and front passenger.
A rollover protection sensing system also helps protect occupants
against impending rollovers by triggering side curtain air bags to
increase the likelihood of occupant containment in a rollover event,
and seat belt pre-tensioners to reduce the likelihood of occupant
contact with the inside of the vehicle.
|The H3 will feature the
new sixth-generation OnStar hardware with digital and analog coverage.
OnStar's Gen 6 hardware includes upgraded hands-free voice recognition
capabilities including more intuitive continuous digit dialing and
improved voice recognition accuracy. OnStar features core safety services
and Personal Calling that allows drivers to make and receive hands-free,
voice-activated phone calls.
|Some of the other standard
safety and security features on the H3 include daytime running lamps,
a PASSLock II anti-theft vehicle security system, remote keyless entry,
battery rundown protection and an electronic tire pressure monitoring
