I bought this Hummer after scouring the market for a few months. I was very impressed with the build quality of this vehicle, it is a tight, well made, solid car. Ride quality is outstanding, shifting is seamless, build quality is flawless. I didn't buy this vehicle for fuel economy, but I have been satisfied with the ratings of 16 city and 19 highway. I am getting virtually the same mileage. Fit and finish on this vehicle is better than I expected, real thought was given to layout and function. I wish Hummer could do a better job of marketing, I believe a vehicle of this quality could still find a market here in the USA.
They’re big. They’re bold. They’re kinda in your face. Tall pickup trucks and SUVs have the kind of ride height that gets you over, through, and around the kind of rough terrain which stops other vehicles in their tracks. If you live in a place with lots of snow, mud, or uneven ground, ride height (defined as the distance between the bottom of your truck’s tires and the lowest point on the underside) is probably more important to you than road-hugging and handling characteristics and strong fuel efficiency.
