The Hummer H2 is a bulky, unconventionally-designed SUV reminiscent of the military. It is extremely capable when taken off-road and dominates the day-to-day roadways. Though it was only produced for six years, the H2 made a splash in the market with its wide stance and rugged exterior.
The Hummer H2, which debuted in 2003, is an attempt to offer something practical for civilian use, yet still built with military inspiration. The H2 is a good fit for anyone seeking Herculean off-road capability over all else.
The Hummer H2 soldiers onto roadways with an intimidating drive and powerful 6.0L V8 engine. Due to its width, driving through densely packed streets can be difficult. The H2's interior seating is comfortable, though it may not be as spacious as its size would imply. Though it was designed to be a better fit on the road than its predecessors, the fuel economy still holds it back from day-to-day commuter use.
The H2 is a quiet vehicle with lots of interior space. For families, this alone is more than worth the price. More recent editions of the Hummer H2 have more powerful engines and more responsive transmissions than its initial 2007 offerings. With a change in seating, the vehicle appeals to a wider variety of family sizes, and makes a statement wherever it goes.
The Hummer H2 sports a 6.0L V8 engine with four-wheel drive and a four-speed automatic transmission, with an upgrade to an 6.2L V8 engine and a six-speed automatic transmission in 2008. These powerful engines are to be expected given the Hummer's inherent weight.
