6x6 Hummer Is Both An SUV And Pickup Truck In One Insane Package

6x6 Hummer

This is a 6x6 Hummer H2 that is both an SUV and a pickup truck. An SUVT, as it were.

The problem with SUVs is that they have a roof. This limits the size of the object you can carry to whatever can reasonably fit inside. However, pickups are not without issue themselves; a full-size SUV can typically seat 7, whereas a pickup truck struggles to fit 5 comfortably.

If only there was a way to get the best of both worlds. Perhaps by having an SUV with a pickup bed attached at the end.

Well, such a vehicle exists. Sadly, it is not a production model, but perhaps if it becomes popular enough it’ll convince some big shot executives that a hybrid SUV/pickup truck is the new vehicle that America has secretly been pining for.

It doesn’t have a name, besides 6x6 Hummer H2. It was built by Niall Seymour from two Hummers--one a pickup model and the other a standard SUV--which were then squished together to become a single vehicle with 12 wheels, 3 axles, and some mildly insane dimensions.

Niall's ride is 7 feet wide, 7 feet tall, 20 feet long, and weighs just under 3.5 tons. Strangely, it can only sit 6, but that has more to do with the Hummer's inefficient use of interior space. It could probably fit more if people were willing to get cozy, according to Seymour.

Most of the 6x6 Hummer is stock. Under the hood is the same 6.0-L V8 it was born with producing roughly 325 horsepower, although it has been modified to accept both LPG and regular octane gasoline. Additions include a painted grille with some matte black bars, some new LED lights, and a set of electronic deployable side steps taken from a Range Rover.

And of course the rear axle and pickup bed from the other H2. Niall basically added it to the existing Hummer but didn’t connect the second rear differential. Technically, this means the Hummer isn’t a true 6x6, but we’re going to give him a pass. He has to deal with driving down old English streets in an SUV/Truck the size of a small bus, so he’s probably suffered enough already.
