A look back at GM’s most macho SUV

The Hummer H2 was the poster child for GM and the era when body-on-frame SUVs conquered the automotive scene. It was the 2003 model year when the H2 got its start. Things stayed relatively unchanged for the majority of the H2’s existence, save for a drivetrain and interior update in 2008. Sadly, GM stopped production of the H2 midway through the 2009 model year before completely killing the Hummer division in 2010 amid financial woes and the “Great Recession.”

The 2006 model year represents the midway point in the H2’s existence. It also represents the beginning of the end, with sales spiraling downward at a breakneck pace towards ruin. Just over 17,000 H2s were purchased in 2006, a far cry from the 53,000 H2s sold before the end of 2003.

Nevertheless, the H2 soldiered on in bold fashion. Its squared jaw, big V-8 power and rugged suspension kept it highly regarded by off-road enthusiasts and Hollywood personalities. It was the SUV to have and everyone wanted the H2, whether they bought one or not.

2009 Hummer H2 SUT 6-Wheeler

2009 Hummer H2 SUT 6-Wheeler

Well, Mercedes-Benz did it with the G-Wagon, so why not modify a Hummer H2 SUT with an extra axle, two extra wheels, and an extra-long bed to cover it all? Yep, extra, or perhaps excess are the operative words. This massive beast actually for sale in the everything-is-bigger state of Texas for an equally large $98,950.

The vehicle started life as a standard H2 SUT with its Chevy Avalanche-like removable mid-gate and fold-flat second row. The one and only owner traded in the Hummer just before an unnamed “custom outfitter/limo company” purchased the truck. That company completed all the modifications to the frame, suspension, and body, along with the military-spec “Flat Dark Earth” paint color and custom interior job.

Now this H2 SUT six-wheeler is for sale and all it takes is green money. The seller says the vehicle has a clean record and only sports 27,000 miles. Of course with it being a Hummer, it comes with GM’s 6.2-liter V-8 and six-speed automatic transmission. Sadly however, the new rear axle is just for show and doesn’t get power from the engine. The H2 still has its trusty four-wheel-drive system for getting through the rough stuff though.

2012 Hummer H2 Project Magnum by SR Auto Group

2012 Hummer H2 Project Magnum by SR Auto Group

It’s been a while since we last heard something about the Hummer H2, but now the folks over at SR Auto Group have decided to bring it back to our attention with its sweet "Project Magnum." Based on the H2, the new Project Magnum has soared sky high since our first encounter many years ago. Since its conception, it has gone through a couple phases to evolve to where it’s at today.

The project started with the addition of a new Fabtech lift kit and a new set of 20-inch wheels, featuring a matte-black face and a gloss-black lip. The wheels are wrapped in monstrous off road tires sized at 40×15.5×20.

The package continues with a set of Brembo brakes and a Hotchkis rear sway bar. For the exterior, SR Auto Group opted for a Leios matte black paint, a wide fender flare kit, and a strut grille kit. The last piece of the package is a throaty Magnaflow exhaust system that makes the engine sound even more beastly.

Now Project Magnum is ready to enter the new year with a brand new look and sound!

2 Horse Power Hummer H2

2 Horse Power Hummer H2

While the real horsepower war rages on, Jeremy Dean has the guts to unveil the "Back to the Futurama" project. What does that mean? He took a Hummer H2 and added two real horses to obtain the Hoover Cart. The total project cost him $15K.

The designer said his project was inspired by the Great Depression; a time when people could not afford gas for their vehicles and so they hitched them to horses, creating "Hoover Carts".

"I was fascinated by the Hoover Cart story and the image I saw in my mind of the re-imagined vehicle, this ultimate coping mechanism, and it seemed to me then, as it does now, a monument to the absurd, as only something utilitarian done in prolonged crisis can be," said Jeremy Dean.

Who said the Hummer is not environmental friendly?

Hummer H2 Bomber by Geiger Cars

Hummer H2 Bomber by Geiger Cars

While winter is over in most of the world, Geiger Cars has decided this is the best time to unveil a Hummer H2 customized for any road condition including 1 meter high snow.

Called the H2 Bomber, this vehicle is equipped with Mattracks 88M1-A1 rubber tracks at each wheel measuring 40cm wide and 150cm long. The interior gets a matte silver finish with extra headlights on the roof and lettering printed in an army style, but an added element of fun can be seen in the sunroof, navigation system with a Kenwood DVD drive, roof monitor with headphones, and rear-view camera.

Under the hood the V8 engine has been tuned to deliver 398 bhp and 574 Nm of torque.

So, off-roaders, what are you waiting for? Oh yeah, next winter!

Video: Jeremy Dean’s ’Futurama’ Hummer H2 horse cart comes to life

About six weeks ago, we featured artist Jeremy Dean and his rather unusual work of art, a horse carriage made from a Hummer H2.

After months of hard work and painstaking labor, Dean finally took his ‘Futurama’ ride out for a leisurely stroll around Central Park. Pulled by two horses he appropriately called ‘Duke and Diesel’, Dean certainly drew a lot of attention for himself and his SUV-inspired horse carriage.

Hummer H2 by CFC

Hummer H2 by CFC

Hummer’s days as America’s monster machine may be numbered, but it doesn’t mean that people will stop tinkering with it. After all, it is one of those rare vehicles that seems to have grown quite a cult following in the US.

So what if the Hummer is a brand with no future? The truth is, cars like the H2 will always be an image of masculinity, a car that will always be given special attention. So, while GM has in fact announced that Hummer is effectively on its death bed, CFC company has nonetheless revealed a very cool tuning kit for the H2.

As part of CFC’s kit, the Hummer’s bonnet is covered in a black carbon film while the side and rear windows are draped with CutLine ThermoTec. There are also 28" TunerShop light-alloy and LSD wing doors.

As for the interior, CFC has decided to make this particular H2 into some kind of home entertainment center, complete with 17 - yes, 17! - Axion displays, a DVD-player, XETEC amplifiers, XETEC subwoofers and digital television.

Talk about rolling in style.

Video: Hummer H2 rescues giant snow plow from...three feet of snow?

Whether you love them or hate them, you have to admit that Hummers are pretty important vehicles to have in times of distress. Though not in the magnitude of natural disasters –although they could come in handy at that time too – situations like blizzards and snow storms call for vehicles like a Hummer to do things no other car can perform.

In this particular case in Baltimore, a Hummer H2 came to the rescue of a snow plow – and a very big one too - that ironically got stuck in a couple of feet of the very same stuff that it was supposed to get rid of.

Fortunately, a nearby H2 was in the area and the owner promptly gave the woebegone snow plow a very timely assistance. Just goes to show that for all of the environmentalists cringing at the sight of a Hummer out on the road, this particular video should show that Hummers – despite the gas-guzzling menaces that they are - still have a place in our world. Sort of.

Video: New York artist turns a Hummer H2 into a horse-drawn cart

Video: New York artist turns a Hummer H2 into a horse-drawn cart

In today’s day and age of sophisticated car tuning, there aren’t a lot of tuners that can proudly say that they were able to turn a Hummer H2 into a high-tech, horse-drawn carriage.

For the record, Jeremy Dean prefers to be called an ‘artist’ rather than a ‘car tuner’. But whatever title he wants to take, there’s no denying the painstaking labor he and a group of his buddies went through to make this highly unusual ride.

For starters, Dean bought a second-hand H2 for a relatively cheap tag of $15,000. Then, he decided to use up all of his life savings to convert the H2 – which he describes as a ‘monument to America’s consumption, greed, and arrogance’ – into, of all things, a horse cart.

To fully understand the rationale behind Dean’s thinking, he explains that there will come a time when the world’s resources will all but dry up rendering all the extravagant and gas-guzzling vehicles roaming the world today useless - unless it is being pulled by a horse. To illustrate his point, he went ahead and converted the H2 into what can only be described as the glitziest and most glamorous horse-drawn cart in the history of the world.

Check out the video and watch how a full-fledged Hummer H2 ended up becoming a pretty razzle-dazzle of a horse cart.

Hummer H2 by GeigerCars fit for a Pimp

Hummer H2 by GeigerCars fit for a Pimp

It’s true that the future of the large American symbol of excess is uncertain, but that doesn’t keep automotive enthusiasts from making into the truly cool car that it can be. However where the YAAS EDITION was built for a king with gold and fine leather, this GeigerCars Hummer H2 is more suited for a pimp with its two tone crème paint scheme, 30 inch chrome dinner plates and purple headliner.

For starters the Geiger H2 is painted Latte Macciatto, it begins with a noble brown base and then a few elements are covered with a very interesting crème-beige. The H2 rides on a set of extremely oversized wheels that measure 30 inches in diameter. Inside are a set of high performance Brembo brake set up consisting of huge 380 mm cross drilled rotors and a set of 4 piston calipers up front and 2 piston units out back.

Like all of Geirger’s creations, the engine has been supercharged and now delivers a maximum output of 547 HP and 563 lb-ft of torque from the blown V8. This translates into a 0 to 60 MPH sprint that will take less than 7 seconds and allows the pimptastic brick to hit a top speed of 141 MPH.

Topless Hummer H2

Topless Hummer H2

Hummer may have suspended the H2 production just so this would never happen again. From the ‘more money than taste’ file comes this chop-top H2.

Spotted in Abu Dhabi, it’s hard to even call this a convertible. There doesn’t appear to be any sort of roof that can be put up in case of rain (or dust) storms. It just looks like someone took circular saw and went to town on the H2’s roof and rear pillars. It also doesn’t help that the "hood scoop" looks like it is the product an oven pan and a few colored lights from Home Depot.

Hummer stops production on H2

Hummer stops production on H2

The life support keeping Hummer alive is going for another shallow breath. The Hummer H2 has suspended production.

This is not too much of a surprise in the industry because Hummer has been in trouble for a while now. General Motors has been looking to offload the brand since the high gas prices of last summer. That was before everyone’s credit hit the skids, making it even tougher to buy the expensive SUV.

The H2 was the largest civilian Hummer being produced after the H1 bowed out in 2006. Now the Chevrolet Colorado-based H3 as the lone Hummer left in production.

This is not a really big surprise after all. We knew already Hummer was in big trouble, and big cars are not the future. In conclusion the H3 production has been halted and 200 workers are without work.

“What we are doing at considerable difficulty and expense to the company is moving all eligible employees from the H2 workforce into other parts of the company — finding them jobs,” said Mac Nab. “That will start to happen at the beginning of March. Some of the older employees have already been moved.”

There is no info yet on when or if the production of the H2 will be started again.

2008 Hummer H2 E85

2008 Hummer H2 E85

From the ’Better Late Than Never’ file, Hummer unveiled today a version of the H2 that runs on E85 ethanol fuel. The car brand known for being a fuel hog is getting greener. The H2 can actually run solely on E85 ethanol, gasoline or any combination of the two fuels. Other GM flex-fuel vehicles currently on the road are only able to run up to 85 percent ethanol (E85).

The latest developments that have enabled the H2 to run on E85 ethanol are being carried on to other vehicles in the Hummer line. The H3 will become E85 capable later in 2009. A four-cylinder turbo diesel engine is also being developed for the H3.

Hummer-Bentley SUV

Hummer-Bentley SUV

Sometimes, having too much money can harm people’s mind and desires, what can be a total kitsch for us can be a luxury for them. It is the case of an arabian from Dubai who recently got rich and and decided that if Bentley wouldn’t make a SUV line than he can invent one just for himself.

He could have chosen for a Range Rover, a Q7 or a VW Touareg V10 TDI but he wanted to invent his own SUV and so he embodied a Bentley in a Hummer. It looks really bad and hurts the eyes when looking at it, it is of totally bad taste but this is the result of too much money and no sense for beautiful.
