Due to fluctuating consumer tastes and volatile fuel prices, the 2007 Hummer H2 faces an uphill battle. Once thought of as a luxury SUV that only celebrities or professional athletes could afford, the H2 attracts more buyers who enjoy the glamorous look and feel of the Hummer.
Utilizing the inspiration of the original Hummer H1, GM borrows components to create the H2 for civilians and not just military personnel.
The scales weigh-in the H2 at 6400 pounds, so the pavement abilities may be insufficient in the macho SUV, given the fact that it has more to lug around. However, serious off-roaders and those who simply love the Hummer style seem completely pleased with the 2007 Hummer H2.
Body Styles: SUV
Engines: 6.0-liter V-8
Transmissions: four-speed automatic
Models: HUMMER H2
The only changes include a powertrain warranty extension, the addition of a little bit of chrome, and a new Glacier Blue edition for the 2007 Hummer H2.
The exterior of the 2007 Hummer H2 looks unmistakable with its ground clearance of 10 inches and aggressive departure and approach angles, along with the skid plates and tires for aggressive all-terrain usage. Standard exterior features for the base include all-terrain 315/70R17 tires, underbody skid plates, locking rear differential, and 17-inch alloy wheels. Optional packages can be purchased that add to the exterior with rear self-leveling air suspension, chrome wheels, and a new color called Glacier Blue. In fact, the Glacier Blue version has special wheels and a roof-mounted lighting bar, too.
The Hummer H2 focuses on luxury and sophistication with many standard features. On the well-equipped base, it includes full power seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, a cassette deck and CD player, a Bose audio system, full power and lumbar-adjustable front seats, a trip computer, leather seating, and OnStar telematics. Heated seats for the front and rear passengers improve comfort, and keyless entry adds to the list of convenience features.
As optional packages, Hummer offers two primary ones from which to choose: the Lux Series and Adventure Series. The Adventure Series adds a six-disc CD changer, a front brush guard, tool kits, and first aid kits for the 2007 Hummer H2. The Lux Series adds upgraded leather seats, a roof rack of brushed aluminum, tubular side steps, a CD changer, a chrome appearance package, a navigation system, satellite radio, and an optional third-row seat.
The H2's cabin has wonderful features of rugged design elements, such as the gear selector that portrays one out of a fighter jet and the exposed Allen bolts. Besides being an SUV with a tough personality, the Hummer H2 feels quite comfortable with the climate-controlled atmosphere of the interior. It offers plenty of legroom to seat five to six passengers and cargo capacity totals an excellent 87 cubic feet.
Performance & Handling
Powering the huge 2007 H2 a 6.0-liter V-8 produces 325 horsepower with 365 lb-ft torque that gets sent towards all four wheels via the automatic four-speed transmission. The dual-range case for transfer comes standard, along with the rear differential driver-selectable locker. Acceleration of the heavy-weight SUV seems a bit slow, taking about 11 seconds to reach 60 mph from a standstill and the fuel economy leaves a few issues for drivers.
Overall, the driving experience seems enjoyable while the 2007 Hummer H2 continues to feel very massive compared to other vehicles on the market. The ride feels a little stiffer than those of the Tahoe or Suburban but it doesn’t really affect comfort. The off-road prowess of the H2 marks the best of its class though.
Traction control and anti-lock brakes provide standard features for the 2007 Hummer H2, but side airbags, curtain airbags, and stability control remain optional features.
