Off-road capability; towing capacity; makes an entrance like no other.
The 2008 Hummer H2 is built on the four-wheel-drive Chevy Tahoe platform, but with a heavier-duty frame and sturdier suspension components. Its high seating position and imposing stance has the tough-guy appeal of the H1, but with an MSRP that starts at $56,655. Two body styles are available: a sport utility body and what Hummer calls an SUT, or a sport utility truck with an open-air 4x6-foot pickup-style bed.
Even though the H1 and H2 share the same attitude, the H2 differs significantly from the original military-style H1 in many ways. It features an extensive list of luxury and comfort-oriented equipment. Leather front and rear heated seats are standard as are eight-way power adjustable seats. A standard driver information center monitors fuel economy, vehicle speed history and 23 different vehicle systems such as coolant and transmission temperature, and oil level and pressure. No fewer than six auxiliary 12-volt power outlets are standard throughout the cabin. Added sound insulation makes day-to-day use more comfortable.
Remote keyless entry and dual-zone automatic climate control are standard, as is a Bose AM/FM stereo with six-disc CD changer. OnStar with one year of service and XM satellite radio are included.
Surprising to some is that the H2 is actually larger than the H1. Off-road capabilities are still impressive, as the H2 can ford 20 inches of water and climb over boulder size pavement chunks with its 9.7-inch ground clearance.
Both the H2 and the H2 SUT are available in three grades: Base, Adventure, and Luxury. The Adventure includes an air compressor, air suspension, a first aid kit, rubber floor mats, unique 17-inch aluminum wheels, a tool kit, and a brush guard. The Luxury trim adds a rear entertainment system, rearview camera system, a sunroof, third row seating and a number of chrome enhancements.
The 2008 Hummer H2 has grown up with new levels of comfort and convenience, but off-roading enthusiasts needn't be alarmed: it still remains a Hummer at heart.
The 2008 Hummer H2 exchanges its older 6.0L V8 engine for a new 6.2L V8 engine with variable valve timing as the standard (and only available) engine. Horsepower is now 393 at 5700 rpm, up from last year's 325 at 5200 rpm. Torque is now 415 lb ft at 4300 rpm up from last year's 365 lb ft at 4000 rpm. To accompany the new engine is a new six-speed automatic with manual mode shifting via paddles on the steering wheel. On the inside, the H2 receives a fully revised and much nicer interior.
The 2008 Hummer H2, with its 6-foot 7-inch height and 6,614-pound curb weight, makes an impression wherever it shows up, and you're not likely to encounter three other H2s at the local neighborhood four-way stop. The H2's impressive off-road capabilities are courtesy of its monstrous 315-series tires and aggressive approach and departure angles, and its 8,200-pound towing capability keeps up with full-size pickups. The H2's styling and attitude is obviously inspired by the military-style H1, but it costs half as much.
