The 2008 Hummer H2

GM’s Hummer keeps getting better and better. The Hummer H2 reportedly received not only a facelift but also an upgrade. Here is what you can expect from the H2:
  • 6.2 L, V-8 engine capable of producing 388 bhp (393 according to different sources) and 423 lb-ft of torque
  • 4WD w/ six-speed automatic transmission (with overdrive)
  • New seats (including optional third-row seats for two passengers)
  • New interior trims
  • Rear-seat overhead DVD system
  • New Bose audio system
  • Redesigned front end (larger grille openings / lower bumpers painted in silver rather than black)
  • Available in three trims (the Base, Luxury and the Adventure)
  • Quicker steering response
  • Quieter
  • A double-cab, pick-up version, the Hummer H2 SUT

The standard features that were retained are the following:
  • Heating, ventilation and a/c system for the rear compartment
  • Off-road ability
  • 17 in wheels
  • Independent front suspension and a five-link rear suspension
  • Extensive underbody protection for the engine and transmission
  • Self-leveling rear air spring suspension system (optional for extreme off-road and towing jobs)
Its price ranges from $56,690 to $56,735. There are also minor changes that are not that worth mentioning. All in all, it is just as good as the old one, although a little different.
