2007 HUMMER H2 Review

By

Despite a downturn in large SUV sales, high gas prices and environmental activists don't seem to be discouraging the die-hard Hummer enthusiasts. With the termination of the H1 (the civilian version of the military vehicle), the H2 becomes the flagship of the Hummer line, offering consumers a capable off-road mini-tank with enough visual appeal to satisfy the most egregious attention hound. Truth be told, the H2 is not roomy, nor does it offer much in the way of cargo space, especially with the optional single third seat in place. If you're looking for a big SUV that is comfortable, roomy and sophisticated, you'd be better served shopping the new Chevrolet Tahoe or GMC Yukon.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you love a bold vehicle that turns heads and makes the statement, "get out of my way," you'll love the H2. Short front and rear overhangs come in handy when off-roading.

You May Not Like This Car If...

The H2 is flashy and, quite often, so are the people who drive them. Practically speaking, the H2 has a rather small interior for its size. Narrow side glass makes for poor visibility and the interior plastics fall short of the standard set by the new Chevrolet Tahoe.

What's Significant About This Car?

A special edition Glacier Blue Metallic package is new for 2007. It features heated windshield wiper fluid and a rear-seat DVD entertainment system with dual headrest-mounted monitors.

Driving the H2

Driving Impressions On the open road, the H2 moves right along, oblivious to the laws of aerodynamics. The big Hummer is surprisingly stable and the position of the wide 17-inch tires at...

the vehicle's outermost corners means you get minimal body roll and fairly respectable handling. This accolade, however, must be taken in context, since we are talking about Sport Utility Vehicle handling, not that of a sports car. For off-road adventuring, including steep hill encounters and boulder-climbing, the transfer case can be locked, creating a perfect 50/50 distribution of power. A four-channel anti-lock brake set-up and traction control module help limit wheel-spin on slippery or unstable ground, and can even route power to a single wheel when necessary.
Favorite Features

Skid Plates
The H2's massive front and rear shields, or "skid plates," look as good as they function.

Stylish Dash
The instrument panel design is far more functional and attractive than that of the original H1.

2007 HUMMER H2 Details
Interior

The H2's interior clearly was never meant to see the battlefield. Inside, the H2 has a usable interior with a handsome dash, contoured bucket seats and a second-row bench seat. Interior plastics are a bit hard and fit poorly in some places. Despite its large size, the interior of the H2 is snug in the areas of rear-seat legroom and cargo space. The spare tire is mounted inside the cabin and when the third-row seat option is in place (it fits only one person), the only storage space available is on the roof.

Exterior

The H2 borrows the basic look and feel of the H1, but pulls it off with a lot more polish. The doors are neatly flush with the rest of the body panels and their hinges are hidden from view. Not all of the H2 parts have been sent to civility school—the hood features exposed latches, lift handles and fasteners, just like the H1. The H2 foregoes the turbocharged diesel engine in favor of a more traditional gasoline V8, but retains the H1's high ground clearance, huge wheels and tires and short front and rear overhangs.

Notable Equipment
Standard Equipment

The H2 comes well equipped with a 325-horsepower 6.0-liter V8, full-time four-wheel drive, dual-zone automatic air conditioning, locking rear axle, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes (ABS), engine oil cooler, rear defroster, 33-gallon fuel tank, illuminated entry, power windows, power locks, automatic headlamps, dual heated power mirrors with auto-dimming mirror, Bose audio with CD and cassette, dual eight-way power seats, skid plates, cruise control, tilt wheel with touch controls, traction control and a rear wiper/washer.

Optional Equipment

Options for the H2 are numerous and include a brushed aluminum light bar, six-disc CD changer, spot lights, leather seats, touch-screen navigation, third-row seat, power moonroof, air suspension, tool kit, rear backup camera, rear-seat DVD entertainment system, exterior front and rear guards and a number of off-road, luxury and appearance packages.

Under the Hood

The H2 has only one engine choice: a 6.0-liter V8 teamed to a four-speed automatic transmission. Though plenty powerful, if it were fitted with the Tahoe's Active Fuel Management system it might deliver better fuel economy.

6.0-liter V8
325 horsepower @ 5200 rpm
365 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4000 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: NA

"other than gas mileage (although no worse than a standard pickup truck), this is the best vehicle i have ever owned. i have taken it across country several times with a full passenger load of my very large (6'6") nephews and even in the back row there was no cramping. i have had no problems mechanically and this is the 3rd h2 i have owned. it is a shame that GM stopped production"

"As the saying goes "if I have to explain it, you wouldn't understand". You have to drive one of these to understand how great a vehicle it is. It will go just about anywhere. I have been on several Hummer outings with this and was just amazed. The Hummer is extremely comfortable to drive city or on road trips. I have gone to South Dakota twice in mine and loved the long haul in it. It has a great turning radius, pulls trailers great and everything is heavy duty on this SUV. I get about 12 mpg combined but my 2013 ecoboost F150 gets 13.5 mpg combined so there's not much difference. I bought this Hummer new and have purchased four trucks since but will have no intention of ever selling this SUV."

"I've owned my Hummer for over 5 years and have been nothing but completely satisfied with it. All I have ever done to it in 118,000 miles is change the oil every 3000 miles put gas in it and replaced the tires 1 time. I don't just drive it on the road either. I go off road at least once a month and this thing goes anywhere! It's a shame these are not being built anymore because I'd buy another!"

"By far the best vehicle our family has ever owned. With over a quarter million miles, still going strong. If they were available today, I would purchase another. If only GM would have built them with the Duramax diesel motor, sales may have been different."

We have had many great family vacations in it, done a lot of off road trips with and it just keeps giving. It is big but so much fun to drive. One of the all time best vehicles I have ever owned."
