Hummer H2 For Sale in the Philippines
Hummer H2 Review
Once upon a time, a lonely SUV saw a dashing pickup truck, an SUT if you may. Now, there was no way for the SUV and SUT to be together, what with their differences in performance, mechanical components and design. Fortunately, AM General, a leader in the engineering and production of military and special purpose vehicles, in partnership with the Hummer brand (a division of General Motors), made the star-crossed vehicles’ dream come true with the Hummer H2 in SUV and SUT versions.
Classified as a full-size SUV with light truck abilities the H2 Hummer succeeded the Hummer H1. With room for six passengers and its driver, impressive off-roading capabilities and a luxurious interior, this Hummer truck perfectly combines strength and class.
Hummer H2 2016 Review in the Philippines
The Hummer H2 was in production from 2002 to 2009, but 2016 just might bring a new and improved 2016 Hummer H2 to American markets carrying a price tag of no less than $32,000. No news or tentative dates are known about the arrival of the 2016 Hummer H2 Philippines nor its official launch. For now, fans of the hulky and remarkable luxury SUV will have to sate their Hummer hunger with earlier H2 models—which are still, of course, as commanding as ever.
Top Reasons the Hummer H2 is the Ultimate Ride for You
Hummer H2 History
In their attempt to manufacture a less exotic-looking and more practical vehicle compared to the H1, parent company General Motors debuted the Hummer H2 in 2003. Back then, one of GM’s primary marketing objectives was to improve sales by introducing the H2 as a passenger vehicle for daily use. In fact, similar to the Ford Excursion, the Hummer H2 is commonly converted to a limousine.
The H2 has one generation but underwent a couple of tweaks throughout its production years, particularly in its interior features and exterior design. By 2005, the Hummer H2 SUT variant was released, wherein the rear of the H2 SUV was modified to become an extendable cargo bed that can be 6 feet long, thereby giving the Hummer H2 SUT a pickup truck appearance.
In the midst of bankruptcy and changing brand perception, the Hummer H2 line saw 2009 as its last year in production. So technically speaking, you won’t be seeing a Hummer H2 2015 cruising down the streets.
In the Philippines, the Hummer with its imposing body shape, distinctive design, and reputation for being a gas guzzler, actually turned into a kind of status symbol. More often than not, inside a majestic Hummer H2 with dark-tinted windows is a well-known celebrity, rich politician, or it could be you.
Hummer H2 Specs and Performance
The Hummer H2 is a prized heavyweight fighter that has a strong core. Its latest engine, a 6.2-liter V8 that grants 393 horsepower and 425 Nm of torque paired with a six-speed automatic transmission and a 4-wheel drive, accelerates from 0-60 in 9.5 seconds and establishes its SUV and light truck qualities. Climb steep hills, haul heavy supplies or drive over rough roads without stress or an aching body, thanks to the H2’s independent short and long arm front suspension and solid live axle rear suspension system with stabilizer bars.

Hummer H2 Compared to Other Full-Size SUVs in the Philippines
There aren’t too many Hummer H2s in the country, and some may even end up comparing the Hummer H2 vs H3. However, there are several full-sized or off-road SUVs that are usually compared to it, namely the Jeep Wrangler, Land Rover Range Rover, and the Toyota Land Cruiser.
- Hummer H2 vs Jeep Wrangler- the Wrangler has better fuel economy, but the H2 has a more powerful engine.
- Hummer H2 vs Land Rover Range Rover- the Range Rover has a more high-tech interior, but the H2 is a more capable off-roader.
- Hummer H2 vs Toyota Land Cruiser- the Land Cruiser has good towing capacity and a strong reliability score, but the H2 has better styling and more cargo space.
Best Reasons to Buy a Hummer H2
For those in need of a vehicle that they can drive to conquer the wild and great outdoors in comfort, the H2’s stability and power coupled with its cozy interior are the answer. Other than that, there are more reasons to go and sit behind the wheel of a Hummer H2. Here are some of them:
- Commanding road presence
- Great off-roading capabilities
- Luxurious and comfortable interior
- Numerous safety and security features
Reviewers often note that the H2’s size makes it hard to maneuver in tight spaces and that H2s manufactured before 2008 had poorly made cabins. The Hummer H2’s gas-guzzling image is a downside as well.
