2010 Hummer H2 SUT Overview

After taking 2009 off, the Hummer H2 SUT is back for 2010 after GM sold the Hummer brand to a Chinese company, Sichuan Tengzhong Heavy Industrial Machinery. Part sports utility vehicle, part pickup truck, the H2 SUT can handle extreme off-road conditions and haul a load of gravel while doing it. The H2 SUT’s boldly rugged style and heavy-duty construction and capabilities make it a unique workingman’s vehicle, but if you don’t need to crawl over boulders or through streams and are looking for an extra-large hauler that doesn’t guzzle gas, you might find more appropriate options elsewhere.

The H2 SUT comes in three trims – Base, Adventure, and Luxury. All three are powered by a 6.2-liter V8 that produces 393 horsepower at 5,700 rpm and 415 lb-ft of torque at 4,300 rpm. The V8 is mated to an automatic six-speed Hydra-Matic transmission and can take E85 Ethanol Flex Fuel. The H2 SUT has a maximum payload of 2,200 pounds and an impressive maximum towing capacity of 8,200 pounds.

All three trims come with a full-time, two-speed electronically controlled 4WD system that operates in four different modes – 4 Hi Open for normal driving, 4 Hi Locked for slippery conditions, 4 Low Locked for severe off-road use, and 4 Low Locked and Rear Axle Differential Locked for optimal slow-speed capability.

The H2 SUT’s off-road abilities are further enhanced by a traction control system, full undercarriage protection, a welded ladder-type frame with full-length box section side rails and a three-piece modular design, an independent front torsion bar, high-strength monotube gas-charged shock absorbers, a rear suspension five-link trailing arm, coil springs, stabilizer bar, and a solid rear axle. The Adventure trim comes with a self-leveling air suspension that is optional for the Base and Luxury trims.

The H2 SUT also has intelligent brakes that recognize varied surfaces and can operate at the same time as the traction control, helping with off-road handling and enabling left-foot braking. The Base and Adventure trims come with 17-inch aluminum wheels with all-terrain LT315/70R17 tires, while the Luxury trim comes with 20-inch chrome wheels with 305/60R20 tires.

Despite its size, the H2 SUT is fairly quick off the line and can get from 0-60 in 8 seconds. Its weight and tall body do create some cornering lean, but most critics like the recirculating ball-type steering, although its 43.5-foot turning circle limits maneuverability. The H2 SUT’s large tires tend to find road grooves on the highway, and it can feel awkward at low speeds over large and small bumps on paved roads, but that’s what happens when you build a vehicle for extreme off-road driving.

The H2 SUT's cabin is well built and comfortable with large, legible gauges, easy-to-use audio and navigation systems, and abundant soft surfaces. The front and rear seats are comfortable, roomy, and heated. All three trims come standard with Bluetooth, remote start, leather seats, five power points, dual-zone heating and air conditioning, rear seat audio controls with headphones, universal remote, and cruise control. The Luxury trim adds a touch-screen DVD navigation radio with a single-disc CD/MP3/DVD and Bose Surround sound and a rear seat overhead DVD. The Base and Luxury trims come with an in-dash 6-CD player.

All three trims come with front bumper retrieval loops and hitch, winch receiver, rear bumper with tow loops and a class 3 hitch receiver, power folding and heated mirrors, and a sunroof.

With the midgate closed, the rear box is 34.7 inches long. When the power midgate window is lowered and the second row of seats folded down, it becomes a 6-foot-long box. It also has four embedded latches for tiedowns.

Safety features include dual front airbags, head curtain side airbags with rollover sensing system, theft-deterrent system, one-year of OnStar Directions and Connections plan, battery rundown protection, and a tire pressure monitoring system. The Luxury trim also comes with a rear-vision camera system, while the Adventure trim comes with first aid and tool kits.


After working at gas stations and car washes in high school, driving across the country more than a dozen times and even living on the road in a well-outfitted truck, Tim O'Sullivan finally started putting some of his automotive knowledge to work when he began writing for CarGurus in 2008. He's also an award-winning journalist and the Sports Editor at the Concord (NH) Monitor.
