8 reasons for Hummer H3 5.3 300KM in comparison to Toyota FJ Cruiser 4.0 239HP

Reasons for

Maximal power

300 > 239 hp
The horsepower is a something that most of us look at first when buying a car. In this case it is the Hummer H3 that has by 26 % more horsepower than the Toyota. As a result the Hummer will reach higher velocity. Thanks to more horsepower the Hummer should also provide seemingly better flexiblility in specific gears.


2,832 > 2,683 mm
The Hummer H3 5.3 300HP has 6 percent longer wheelbase in comparison to Toyota. Consequently the Hummer is more safe and has a better stability. Moreover, longer wheelbase affects convenient and more comfortable driving.


4,737 > 4,667 mm
The Hummer H3 is 1 % longer than the Toyota. The length of the car plays a role in respect of travelling comfort and room in the boot. The Hummer H3 5.3 300HP preasumbly will be offering to it's passangers more room for legs. Aditionally the Hummer H3 will be better driven ,however, the Toyota FJ Cruiser 4.0 239HP will be a little easier to park because of shorter length .

Rear track

1,651 > 1,605 mm

Number of doors

5 > 3
It seems to be quite obvious that the five-door Hummer is more convenient and if you frequently travel with more than one passenger then this car is only possible option for you. The strongest point of a five-door vehicle is that it’s not only easier for passengers to climb into the rear seats but it’s also easier to place luggage and cargo into the car when the rear seats are folded flat. However, three-door cars like the Toyota generally look more dynamic and sporty and for those who rarely have more than one passengers in the car the Toyota FJ Cruiser might be a good one, the more so for being a little bit cheaper than the same model with more doors.

Price range

luxury > popular


1,894 > 1,810 mm
The higher a vehicle is, the better is the comfort of boarding it and greater capacity of carrying big amount of luggage to it. The difference that amounts to 84 mm in favor of the Hummer is insignificant and does not matter much.

Front track

1,651 > 1,602 mm

Reasons for


1,904 > 1,894 mm
Width of a vehicle directly influences on the amount of space for passengers and also stability while driving. The width of the Toyota FJ Cruiser 4.0 239HP is larger only by 10 mm in relation to the Hummer H3 5.3 300HP and is not really relevant. The medium for the „large off-road 4x4” class is around 1,866 mm and is by 2 percent larger than the width of the Toyota.

Model release date

2007 > 2005
Because of the fact that the Hummer H3 was launched only 2 years prior to the Toyota FJ Cruiser 4.0 239HP, the gap between technology applied in both cars shouldn’t be really big, however, the Toyota might feature slightly more modern solutions used in it.
