Review of the 2007 HUMMER H2

  • The 2007 Hummer H2's "look-at-me!" styling and impressive off-road prowess aren't enough to offset the vehicle's glaring faults in performance, fuel consumption and packaging. For practicality in an SUV, look elsewhere.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Distinctive styling, unmatched off-road capability, comfortable ride, cushy seats.

  • Cons

    Feels massive, poor visibility, some cheap interior materials, limited cargo room, horrible fuel economy.

  • What's New for 2007

    Other than some additional chrome, a new Glacier Blue limited edition and the powertrain warranty being extended to five years/100,000 miles, there are no changes for the 2007 Hummer H2.

What's New for 2007

Other than some additional chrome, a new Glacier Blue limited edition and the powertrain warranty being extended to five years/100,000 miles, there are no changes for the 2007 Hummer H2.


Equal parts image and substance, the 2007 Hummer H2 faces an uphill battle that even its capable four-wheel-drive system may not be able to scale. The glamour vehicle among celebrities, rap stars and pro athletes when it debuted four years ago, the H2 has a harder time attracting more down-to-earth buyers due to volatile fuel prices and fluctuating consumer tastes.

Inspired by the look of the original Hummer H1, a massive off-road-oriented vehicle designed for military use, the Hummer H2 SUV uses an amalgam of components borrowed from GM's full-size pickups and SUVs. With 10 inches of ground clearance, aggressive approach and departure angles, aggressive all-terrain tires, a variety of skid plates and a locking rear differential, the H2 can pretty much tackle any trail wide enough to accommodate its considerable girth.

But this macho hardware is mostly a liability on-pavement. Tipping the scales at 6,400 pounds, the 2007 Hummer H2 weighs about as much as two Honda Accords. All that heft means that even with 325 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque, the H2's 6.0-liter V8 is huffing and puffing to get this tank up to speed. As expected, gas mileage is dismal, averaging less than 10 mpg all around.

After five years on the market, though, the H2 doesn't turn quite as many heads as it once did while motoring through suburbia. Unless you're a very serious off-roader or happen to be in love with the H2's style, you'll likely find that this Hummer's unwieldy size, limited versatility and big thirst make it foolish to drive on a daily basis.

Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options

The 2007 Hummer H2 is a large, five- or six-passenger SUV. Standard features are generous and include dual-zone automatic climate control, Bose audio with a CD player and cassette deck, leather seating, full power front seats including lumbar adjustment, a trip computer, OnStar, keyless entry, heated seats front and rear, underbody skid plates, 315/70R17 all-terrain tires and a locking rear differential.

There are two major packages -- the Adventure Series and the Lux Series. The Adventure Series adds a self-leveling rear air suspension, a six-disc CD changer, tool and first aid kits, and a front brush guard. The Lux Series package doesn't include the air suspension, but comes with chrome wheels, upgraded leather seating, a chrome appearance package, single passenger third-row seat (increasing seating capacity to six), a brushed-aluminum roof rack, tubular side steps, satellite radio and the CD changer. A new color-themed package is available as well: Glacier Blue. It comes with special wheels, a DVD player for those in back, a navigation system, a rearview camera, carbon-fiber cabin trim and a roof-mounted light bar. Most of these features, as well as a sunroof, are also available as stand-alone options.

Powertrains and Performance

A 6.0-liter V8 rated at 325 hp and 365 lb-ft of torque sends power to all four wheels through a heavy-duty four-speed automatic transmission. A dual-range transfer case is standard, as is a driver-selectable rear differential locker and a drive-by-wire throttle setup that changes sensitivity when low-range gearing is selected. Getting the 3-tons-plus H2 up to 60 mph is an effort that takes nearly 11 seconds, and gas mileage is absolutely dismal; we've averaged just 9.2 mpg overall in our testing.


Antilock brakes and traction control are standard, but stability control is not available. Side-impact and side curtain airbags are not available, either.

Interior Design and Special Features

The H2's cabin features rugged design elements, such as exposed Allen bolts and a gear selector that looks as if it were lifted from a fighter jet. In spite of its tough personality, the H2 pampers its occupants with dual-zone climate control, well-padded leather seats and a nine-speaker Bose audio system. Sadly, an abundance of hard plastic trim and unconvincing faux metallic accents seem ill-suited for a truck whose MSRP can approach $60,000. With the rear seats lowered, 87 cubic feet of cargo is available, which is noticeably less than other large SUVs.

Driving Impressions

Despite being slightly downsized compared to the original Hummer, the 2007 Hummer H2 still feels massive on the road. The ride is slightly stiffer than that of a Suburban or Tahoe, but not so much as to be uncomfortable. The H2's off-road prowess is easily the best in its class, with steep approach and departure angles, plenty of ground clearance, ample wheel travel and plenty of grip from the aggressive tires. Power from the big V8 is blunted by the vehicle's substantial mass.

Hummer for horses

Vehicle: 2007 HUMMER H2 4dr SUV 4WD (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

We have just purchased a H2 to tow our horses to shows. Our two new horses weigh 2700# together and if they start doing the "Kentucky 2 Step" it was hard for our Jeep Grand Cherokee to steer straight. This vehicle is PERFECT, pulls without effort, easy to back up with mirrors, comfortable to ride and gets better gas mileage than the Jeep, especially when towing. Getting to the Barn in all kinds of weather is not possible with a 4WD truck because of weight balance. This vehicle is almost impossible to get stuck. I have no concerns about my wife when she is in this vehicle, it screams safety from it's size only. I am a Professional Engineer, I recommend without reservation.

Just love it.

This was my dream vehicle. It gets better gas mileage that my Expedition although not the best I was used to budgeting the gas. Heavy and solid vehicle and in the snow awesome. I feel so safe in my Hummer and the Arctic Blue color was a surprise. Driving it is heaven and I do get the looks. I new thought I would be able to own one. It's fun to drive!

The car of my life!

Exceptional car, however take the time and read about it before you buy it. If you plan on saving gas, park in tight spaces or race with a Viper partner, this is surely not your best pick!

Do want to be noticed!

I purchased the Victory Edition for my wife. Very beautiful & spectacular looking SUV. Handles very well. Performance is a bit low considering it's a 6.0 ltr. Needs a turbo charger or supercharger in order to live up to its name. Ride is comfortable in the front.

Fun to drive

I like it but am disappointed with the quality. After only 3000 miles and none of it off road, all the paint came off the nerf bar brackets and the chrome is pitted. There is rust leaking out around the screw heads on the exterior chrome luxury package upgrades as well. The driver seat is too plush with little stiff padding. If you weigh 200 pounds or more you will be sitting on the actual outer seat frame. If you are tall, you will have to lower the seat all the way to not hit your head.

The H2 exceeded my expectations. The mileage is average, 15mpg. Accleration is comparable of a 3/4 ton truck. Towing is great. One barely notices the difference with a 8200# load.
