Hummer H2 History

The following historical data of the Hummer H2, manufactured by Hummer, were retrieved from many sources.

The Hummer H2 is an SUV and SUT that was marketed by General Motors under the Hummer brand. It is a large truck with room for six passengers. The rearmost part of the H2 SUV was modified to a pickup truck bed for the 2005 H2 SUT. Both the H2 SUV and SUT are being discontinued after the 2010 model year as GM is winding down the entire Hummer brand. It was the only one of the trucks to have the letters HUMMER between the grilles.

The H2 was built under contract by AM General at a specially constructed plant in Mishawaka, Indiana, USA. GM’s GMT820 truck shares platforms with the Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon, but those vehicles differ in many ways and are constructed in three other GM plants. The H2’s final frame, the mid-section is all new and is completely boxed, and the rear section uses a modified GM 1500-Series frame which is upgraded for the 8,600 pounds gross vehicle weight.

The H2 was nominated for the North American Truck of the Year award for 2003. Unlike the other full-size GM trucks and SUVs, the H2 remained on the GMT800 platform after 2007, but was given an interior facelift similar to the likes of the new-for-2007 GMT900 SUVs. Hummer launched a special 2009 Black Chrome Limited Edition version of the truck. In January 2009, a study by ISO Quality planning revealed the H2 and H3 Hummers to be the most ticketed vehicles in the United States. From 2002-2007 the Hummer H2 was equipped with a 6.0L V8, while the 2008-2009 H2’s were powered by 6.2L V8.
