Hummer H2 6.0 V8 Automatic
2003 Hummer H2 6.0 V8 Automatic, 321hp. Finished in black with Tan Wheat cloth interior, the car also features a recently resprayed dashboard and console which is now in a more contemporary piano black finish. The odometer shows 172982km and the chassis number is 5GRGN23U23H146267. The current owner has had the car for 10 years and it has been well maintained in this time - it will be freshly serviced by ourselves prior to delivery.
The H2 was launched back in 2002 – nearly 20 years on there are still few cars that match its undeniable presence and stature on the street. However, backing up those tough, military derived looks are true off-road credentials. That boxy body sits atop a wide, long wheelbase ladder frame that is hydro-formed in the front to enable it to support a winch capacity of 9000lbs, with the same construction used in the rear enablish the H2 to tow up to 6500lbs.
The H2 is powered by a Vortec 6000 V8, pushing out a useful 316hp and 360 lbs-ft of torque. This is delivered via a 2-speed electronically controlled full-time 4WD system which has 5 operational modes, enabling it to adapt to differing conditions at the touch of a button. These modes include 4 High Open, 4 High Locked, 4 Low Locked, 4 Low Locked & rear Differential Locked and Neutral (if the car requires being towed behind another vechice). Variable throttle control gives the driver a choice of two modes – a normal mode for road driving and a more sensitive throttle for off-road giving more feedback where precise inputs are needed.
Suspension consists of an independent torsion bar up front with high-strength 46mm monotube gas-charged shock absorbers and a solid rear axle connected by trailing arms and controlled via sprints and a stabilizer bar. This setup has been designed to deliver both good on and off-road manners, and showing the cars serious off road intent are frame-mounted urethane bumpers that act as a cushion in the event of extreme load should you desire to hit some proper rough stuff. The car also benefits from a reassuring amount of under-body protection nose to tail, from a thick aluminum sump guard to a protected transmission case and a plastic, non-sparking fuel tank shield.
As you would expect from such a utilitarian exterior the interior is designed both tough and functional. It has worn well over the years, still holding up well and benefiting from the aforementioned paint work on the dashboard and console which gives it a more modern feel up front. A premium Bose sound system rounds it off with a touch of luxury to keep your ears satisfied.
This H2 is a well presented car with a good history, and will be equally at home posing in cosmopolitan settings as it is sludging through muddy streams and fields out in the countryside.
