The iconic HUMMER H2 enters 2009 with new technologies including Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free phone operation, new interior amenities, a Black Chrome limited edition model and standard E85 FlexFuel capability. The enhancements give customers more choices on a model line that delivers an uncompromising balance of capability and comfort.

“For customers who seek the ultimate in off-road prowess and on-road style, there’s nothing else like the H2,” said Martin Walsh, HUMMER general manager. “It is in a class by itself, delivering unmatched utility.”

The H2 also comes with a race-winning pedigree that includes three production class wins at the infamous Baja 1000. The racing vehicles are based on regular-production H2s, with only regulatory safety equipment and other minor differences separating them from examples found in HUMMER dealerships.

Just like the racing vehicles, the 2009 production lineup – H2 SUV and H2 SUT – is powered by a 6.2L all-aluminum small-block V-8 engine. It is rated at 393 horsepower (293 kW)* and paired with a Hydra-Matic 6L80 six-speed automatic transmission. Performance-optimizing engine technologies, such as variable valve timing, and the six-speed’s wide gear ratios, including a “tall” overdrive gear, optimize the powertrain’s efficiency.

New for ’09, the 6.2L engine is calibrated for FlexFuel capability, meaning it can run on E85 ethanol, gasoline or any combination of the two fuels.

 
H2 SUT – maximum utility and fun

Like the H2, the H2 SUT carries passengers and cargo, but does so with a twist: an open cargo bed enables convenient storage of larger items. 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. With four passengers on board, the bulkhead at the rear of the SUT’s passenger compartment remains upright, still providing ample cargo-carrying capacity.

Practicality aside, the H2 SUT also offers an open, invigorating driving experience. 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 the SUT a truly open-air feeling.
