Looking for the ultimate off-road machine but also need a vehicle that doubles as an everyday workhorse? You're in luck. The
2009 HUMMER H2 SUT (Sport Utility Truck) combines the chassis and interior of the H2
SUV with an open bed and folding "Midgate" pass-through for increased cargo-holding capability. Although the full-size
Chevrolet Avalanche is a bit more practical and probably just as good off-road, the H2 SUT projects an image even the most customized of
pickups can't match. Plus, the H2 SUT's short front and rear overhangs make it a better choice for serious off-road enthusiasts. Now, if we could just get it with a diesel engine.
The H2 SUT's 6.2-liter V8 is now E85-compatible. New available features include a heated and power-adjustable steering wheel, a new rear backup camera system that projects its image in the rearview mirror and Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity.
The H2's major interior makeover touts a new dash, upgraded seating and an available split-folding full third-row seat. New standard features include rear air conditioning, electronic stability control, head curtain airbags and a new 6.2-liter V8 engine with a six-speed automatic transmission.
An optional rear-vision camera is new for 2007, as is the Glacier Blue Limited Edition, which features body colored fenders, low-profile roof-mounted light bar, chrome accents, heated washer fluid and a rear-seat DVD entertainment system.
"Heart broken I finally have to part with my H2 after 185K miles but all great things must come to an end. Drove it every week from SF Bay Area to Tahoe for 5+years. By far the most comfortable drive, much better than my BMW 745. Loved the handling, security and ride."
"This truck is really a fun vehicle to have! It is very reliable, versatile, safe, maneuverable, and the only downside I have is the fuel economy. It has caused NO problems at all for the 9 years I have had it."
"I bought the first 2008 H2 that arrived in Colorado about two years ago. Since I've had it, it's been lifted and dressed up with new wheels and tires that make it look even better. The thing runs great. The luxury edition fully loaded is the way to go... People knock them for what they are, but in terms of an SUV... they simply don't get any better."
