After a few years of relatively poor sales from AMG, General Motor took over the Hummer brand and decided to make it much more sales friendly by making it smaller, shinier and focused mainly on the skin deep aspects.
The Hummer H2 bears some resemblance to its H1 counterpart but underneath it is a Chevrolet Tahoe which is much, much less capable off-road, somewhat smaller and it was even available as an almost totally useless pickup.
Plenty of things can be hated about the Hummer H2 and for good reason, but then there’s plenty of stuff to like about the behemoth one can end up liking. To begin with, as bad as the fuel economy levels are in the H2, they are still better than the enormous military spec diesel H1.
Then there’s the considerably narrower body which makes the H2 a lot easier to live with in traffic and then we come to the Hummer H2 and its party piece. It was one of the most comfortable cars out there and it even came with a decent amount of equipment as standard.
The two biggest ever improvements the H2 provided however were the considerably quieter interior and the fact that it was designed to carry six people instead of the just four of the H1.
