W the General does know he’s doing. General saw an icon in the making and bought the name from American The idea was to create and market other than the military-based H1 American General markets.

of us who are not great fans of the H1 were what the new vehicle would like.

As any of you who have seen the H2 on the can attest, the vehicle is very a relative to the H1. But it’s a ton more

Based on the Tahoe platform, in itself is a pretty decent the H2 took all its styling cues its big brother. So from the start, is a vehicle that will to the Arnold Schwartzneggers of the world.

I am not a fan of H1 styling, but the H2 takes the general theme and makes it more This isn’t a pretty in version of the H1, but one that has all the physical of the military version cleaned up for use. H2 is a vehicle I’d to the country club; the H1 I’d home in favor of a Kia.

The H2 is a usable vehicle. For one thing, you can hold conversations with the in the H2.

The engine is a 6.0-liter GM Vortec V8 of a diesel of gigantic proportions. And located up front under the not in between the passengers as it is in the H1. So there’s usable space inside the

H2 is a true five-passenger vehicle if you opt for the 3rd row seat which seats where H1 was good for only And these passengers will comfortable seats, not cramped as in the H1. Behind the seats is a cargo that is listed at 40 cubic but a lot of that area is taken up by the spare tire (the is also the reason why you can only fit a one seat back there).

I think H2 earns its stripes by having excellent ride Constant readers will that I have liked the platform for a while, and there’s no to change that opinion the Hummer. You can go down a highway and a smooth ride, which is you want on a highway.

But H2 is also a performer off road. While we have the opportunity in our extended we did drive an H2 at General Motors’ Grounds in Midland, Michigan, and have an obstacle course set up would test any vehicle’s The most impressive part of the to me was a series of steps. The first is six high, the second 12, the third 18 and the 24.

You’re not going to run into too obstacles that you’ll have to clear that be taller than that. The H2 all heights (in Low-Low 4WD gearing), and away with a smile.

In the H2 can climb a 60-degree grade, and can a 40-degree side grade. means you’re almost at the ground and the H2 can still negotiate. due to the relatively low overall height and width. H2 also has a 40-41 approach angle (depending on and a 38-39.6-degree departure angle.

H2s we have seen have had exhaust systems that compromise the vehicle’s ability to with off-road situations, but our and all the H2s we’ve seen at GM have of ground clearance. Maybe the low H2s were vehicles that had modified in some way.

H2 also has more normal all-terrain tires, rather the 20-inch tires on the H1. Granted, tires like these cheap, but they’re a lot easier on the than the bigger ones.

economy is poor, as you’d from a vehicle of this We averaged around 10 mpg, but that was more than the H1. The came when we had to fill the tank. Ow.

GM is also stretching the with the H2 with the bright one in these photos as well as an orange-red one that we drove. seen the H2’s in all the more colors as well.

The Hummer H2 isn’t for everyone. But for a lot more people, in my estimation, the H1 was.
