Short overhangs allow radical approach and departure
angles, as well as exceptional ground clearance for minimal impact
on trails. Standard 17-inch wheels, heavy-duty independent front
suspension and a five-link rear suspension provide superior handling,
carrying and towing capability.
A solid rear axle ensures durable sure-footedness,
particularly in tight, off-road situations. Also standard is underbody
protection and rocker protection. These elements help the H2 deliver
on HUMMER’s mantra of capability, including traveling through
streams 24 inches (508 mm) deep, climbing 16-inch (406-mm) steps
and rocks and paddling through deep sand or snow.
The H2 features a four-channel anti-lock braking/traction
control system (ABS/TCS) that 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 new traction system allows the driver to use a two-foot driving
technique (one foot the brake, the other on the gas pedal), which
is the best driving style for negotiating a steep, rocky trail.
The TCS also includes the ability to gain traction through a single
A self-leveling rear air spring suspension system
is available for extreme off-road and towing requirements.
