WOW, i want a hummer now more than ever,

they put the 6.2 v-8 and a 6 speed tranny in the h2 like the denali's.

updated the interior with the tahoe and yukon stuff.

the website (sadly) no longer offers the h1 on the website.

i really want a hummer, they have a bunch of cool stuff now. YEA.

I actually test drove an Alpha H3 today and the salesman tried to tell me the H2 got the same mileage as my Tahoe, needless to say, I wasn't really buying it.:skep: :skep: :skep: The Alpha had the %.3 non flex fuel engine and of course was slower due to lower gearing.
I am saddened the H1 is no longer produced for us civilians, even though I don't see myself ever paying $130,000 for a vehicle as that is a totally ridiculous amount of money to pay for a depreciating asset and taking it off road to beat the crap out of it, you really need deep pockets, like $10,000 a year for maintenance costs( I know some one that has one) unless I was a multi millionaire, forget it.

:smilielol: :smilielol: :smilielol:


dealer logic- same engine, same fuel economy. but the new h2s have the 6.2 not the 6.0. but o so wrong because of the lower gears, but lower gears help with pick up, but take away from top speed. im super happy with 4.10 on my yukon. i think its the best pick up top speed gear combo.

i wanna go test drive an 08 hummer h2, to check out how the new v-8 is and see how the redesigned interior is. they say the LUX adition has seating for 7 with a full third row, but im sure with the full third row , thats that leaves no room for luggage, thankfully they remove in two piece's allowing it to be easier and more versatle.

but your right, i cant see spending 150k on an off road vehicle, a rolls maybe but not an offroad, plus i dont just have 150k laying around to spend LOL. but i still love the h1 alpha. now they need an h2 alpha.

yea, but a nice fully loaded hummer has just as many bells and whisles as a fully loaded ltz, the only difference is the 08 hummer h2 fully loaded is MORE than the price of a fully loaded esclade. i could get a fully loaded burban z71 for 30k less and still have as much off road capability as i would ever need, heck i have that with my yukon xl, if i got a hummer i would probably just go on the sand and the rest dry pavement or snow . i mean its 71k for a fully loaded esclade and 77k for a fully loaded hummer h2.

I would have to disagree on the off road ability as the Hummer has lower gearing for it's low range. I have a friend that used to take me off roading in his H2 and we had an Avalanche come along, it was lifted and did pretty darn good off road, but in the really rough stuff the H2 is better.

note i said as i would ever need :thumbsup: i know the hummer has alot more off road capabilities. im not the extrime rock climber type of person. LOL, i would never try that in anything but a hummer or at last resort a land rover:ack: but i think the reason their so un popular is the price , 70k is expensive for anything but a house. i think 40 k for my yukon was expensive.

We paid $40,000 for the Tahoe, and the H3 Alpha I drove yesterday was $45,000 and I spoiled on the Tahoe's many features in the LT2 package and the Hummer aside from the cool nav unit and the Monsoon system sounded great, but am I going to take a $45,000 vehicle off roading, most likely not as off roading just beats the crap out of the vehicles.

yea, i have a couple of raddles already in the yukon, im sure from the muddin, i may one day invest 2k in an old running k5 blazer to satisfy my off road needs. but if i ever bought a hummer (not likely) i would do beaches , and thats about it.

i think paul SR is way too ruff with his 70k hummer, i mean the episode on tlc now, they hooked up a motor cycle to the rear end, put the bike on the roof, and he floored it and dragged the motor bike through the air to the ground 40 feet down.

another episode i remember them pulling cars apart and rippin the seats out with his hummer.

another one, he is crushing old furniture.

i dont think i would ever treat a hummer like that,

a ford expidetion yes. but not a 70k truck. :eek:

I like Hummers, and I think the H2 is great, just a little big. I really would like to get an H3 Alpha, those are just sick! However last weekend at the mud pit two guys, one in an H3 (regular/off road package) and another in an H2 came down and followed me through some puddles. They were obviously friends, and were definitely Yuppies. I'm pretty sure the H3 was the guy's wife's. Anyway they both got stock, yes they got stock, I know it was hard to believe. The guy in the H3 hopped out (wearing khakis, and loafers) and ran over to his buddy in the H2, who refused to get out, in fear of getting his loafers muddy. The guy in the H3 was nice, and asked me if I could pull him out, pretty much a breeze for me as H3s are pretty light. However I couldn't move the H2 more than a foot. Fortunately my friend was there in his Ram and yanked the dude out. I was a little shaken by it, I mean Hummer is built for goin off road (for the most part) and I ended up pulling them out. What I learned from the experience is that I won't get a H3 unless it's the Alpha, or is lifted with some M/T tires. And that a pretty much stock Tahoe with M/Ts can move a H2 one foot in deep mud!!:Chevy:

its not the truck, its most likely the nuts (i presume a gay couple) behind the wheel. i like the h2 becasue i like big trucks, but thats just me and thats why its awsome that gm has a smaller version h3 for someone who does not want a haunkin huge block of medel.

WHO WARES LOAFTERS AND FANCY PANCY PANTS OFF ROADING. did they talk in that wierd "gay" voice, like the guy workers in victoria secret talk, yes i take strolls throgh there. :D :lol:

I test drove an Alpha and it was ok, and I say that because I like creature comforts like steering wheel controls and adjustable foot pedals so aside from the nav and Monsoon stereo, it was ok. The visibility is less so you have to get used to that.I do't know if I would take a $45,000 off road so for the money I could get an LTZ and have way more comfort.

Lol, naw they weren't gay (I looked because the same thought crossed my mind, and they had wedding bands) And yea, I don't why he had on loafers and khakis, but they were definitely Yuppies! Granted the dude looked like a P*ssy but he did everything right in the pit, he floored it through making sure the mud didn't stick on the tires, but I think because it is such a heavy vehicle it got stuck, and as for the H3 I don't think it had the horses to pull through suck deep mud. I walked in it and got stuck up to my ankle (fortunately I had boots on). I have seen all kinds of trucks get stuck in there, including mine, but only once (knock on wood). Anyway I was just shocked that Hummer got stuck, but than again I'm sure they could show me a thing or two out on a rock crawling trail! :Chevy:

they probably were not smart enough to switch it from 40/60 4wd to 4wd lo Locked for 50/50 4wd.

according to the website, its anybody. but it more depends on your tax braket and since im young as i have not had that much time to get my self a good tax braket, your probably fine, but mines too low right now. :cryin:

edit- let me do some more research as the websites i pull up are from 2003, that may be the confusion here. and sadly your probably right that they have stopped it.
