|With its rugged good looks
and incredible off-road capabilities, the HUMMER H2 and H2 SUT have
brought a whole new level of capability and flexibility to the marketplace.
For 2007, the H2 unveils a
new Glacier Blue limited edition with a rear-vision camera system.
The package features body-color fender moldings and rocker moldings
with an integrated assist step, and a lower-profile roof-mounted
lightbar with integral lamps. Chrome hood handles, hood latches,
hood louver, exterior side vents, rear D-rings and fuel filler door,
and 17-inch flangeless chrome wheels complete the exterior. Inside,
the limited edition has new carbon fiber appearance accents. The
exterior hue is a light, silvery blue.
In addition, the Glacier Blue limited
edition has a heated windshield wiper system with warm fluid on
demand that removes snow, ice and debris, and a rear-seat DVD system
with dual headrest-mounted viewing screens, each with individual
DVD-players and wireless headphones. It debuts in late summer as
a 2007 model, and will be available in the United States , Canada
, Mexico and the Middle East .
Other changes for all 2007 H2 models
include an optional rear-vision camera system and a new rear-seat
DVD system with dual headrest-mounted viewing screens.
The rear-vision system features a 3.5-inch
full-color display housed in the rearview mirror, which receives
its picture from a universal rear mounted camera. When the vehicle
is put into Reverse, the video display automatically deploys from
the side of the mirror, providing the driver an image of the area
behind the vehicle both day and night. The display is in the driver’s
natural line of sight, and the slide-out display won’t compromise
a driver’s traditional field of view or create distracting
glare. The screen then retracts back into the mirror when the vehicle
is shifted out of Reverse.
H2 at heart, HUMMER in the
Every H2 starts with a fully welded
ladder-type frame that features a modular, three-piece design incorporating
a number of hydroformed components. The result is outstanding strength,
stiffness and dimensional accuracy. Ensuring on-road ride comfort
and control, as well as off-road capability, is H2's standard independent
front torsion bar and five-link coil spring rear suspension. The
solid rear axle ensures durable sure-footedness, particularly in
tight, off-road situations. A self-leveling rear air spring suspension
system is available for severe off-road and towing requirements.
The H2 and H2 SUT have short overhangs
for radical approach and departure angles and exceptional ground
clearance for minimal impact on trails. The 17-inch wheels, heavy-duty
independent front suspension and five-link rear suspension provide
superior handling, carrying and towing capability.
H2's power is derived from the standard
Vortec 6.0L V-8 that generates 325 horsepower (242 kW) at 5200 rpm
and 365 lb.-ft. of torque (495 Nm) at 4000 rpm. The engine is mated
to a heavy-duty Hydra-Matic 4L65 four-speed rear-wheel drive electronically
controlled automatic overdrive transmission. H2 also features a
standard, powertrain-integrated Borg-Warner two-speed electrically
controlled full-time 4WD system. It's capable of further reducing
H2's gear ratios by 2.64:1 when necessary, for highly controlled
A Bosch four-channel anti-lock braking/traction
control system (ABS/TCS) provides optimum control on slippery surfaces.
In addition, the ABS can detect and adjust its braking capabilities
to rough off-road surfaces like gravel and potholes. The TCS also
includes the ability to gain traction through a single wheel, if
necessary, and more wheel slip in a second traction control mode
for sand and desert racing conditions.
Styling matches uncompromising
Daring and attention-getting is how
the H2’s exterior design is often described. The H2 and H2
SUT are instantly recognizable as belonging to a highly exclusive
brand at the top of its class in off-road performance. The look
and feel conveys the sense of power, authority and complete control
that buyers seek.
H2’s square-shaped body and upright
windshield and windows combine to create significant interior room.
The vertical glass opens up a broader front and wider side view.
In a nod to the functional aspect of design, exposed components,
like hood lift handles, hood latches and fasteners, give H2’s
appearance an individually component-assembled quality. Exposed
components and mechanical elements are functional and convey ruggedness.
Luxury meets ruggedness in
H2's rugged exterior gives way to a
luxurious interior. It begins with standard leather seats with eight-way
power adjustment for the front seat cushions and backs. Also standard
is a memory feature for the driver’s seat that allows two
drivers to select and set their preferred positions. The leather
seats include heated seat backs and cushions with three temperature
settings for the front occupants. Heated cushions serve to keep
second-row occupants comfortable. For maximum flexibility, the second-row
seats can be individually folded. With the SUV, a single-passenger
seat is available for the third row, giving the SUV six-passenger
Like its brother, the H2 SUV, the SUT
carries passengers and cargo with comfort and ease. With four passengers
on board, the bulkhead at the rear of the SUT’s passenger
compartment remains upright, still providing ample cargo-carrying
When cargo requires more space, a 4-foot
by 6-foot (122-cm by 244-cm) pickup bed can be created by powering
the rear window into the Midgate, then folding forward the Midgate
and rear seat.
Practicality aside, there’s a
side to the H2 SUT that’s just plain fun. At the push of a
single button, the driver can lower all four side windows and the
rear window. Using a separate switch, the standard sunroof can also
be opened, giving SUT a truly open-air feeling.
Of course, the H2 SUT is an H2 at heart,
and the H2 is every bit the truck that first captured the market’s
fancy in 2002. It’s also a HUMMER first and foremost. That
means it's capable of traveling through streams 20 inches (508 mm)
deep, climbing 16-inch (406-mm) steps and rocks, paddling through
deep sand and outdistancing competitors in high-speed desert runs.
Ask for directions? Never!
The beauty of a HUMMER is the ability to go pretty much anywhere.
And on road it’s not a problem if the driver is unsure of
how to get there, thanks to the available Navigation Radio. With
the push of a button, the navigation operation will instantly map
routes with 2-D and 3-D full-color map views on a 5.8-inch (147-mm)
display screen, making navigation on highways and streets effortless.
Also available is XM Satellite Radio
(continental U.S. only), which provides more than 120 coast-to-coast,
digital-quality channels of original commercial-free music and premier

H2 safety, comfort and convenience
features include standard frontal air bags; four-way adjustable
headrests, arm rests and seat-mounted lap-shoulder belts for front
passengers; lap and C pillar-mounted shoulder belts for second-row
outboard passengers and a seat-mounted lap-shoulder belt for the
center passenger; and a seat-mounted lap-shoulder belt and adjustable
headrest for the optional third-row seat.
