I have an H-2 for sale, paid over $60,000 would save someone money on mine. Ready for offers

2mpg while towing. That is unbelievable!!! I thought for sure that was a typo. What size is the gas tank?

Why such terrible gas mileage ? I do like the styling of the truck but isn't it on the same chassis as a Tahoe or Yukon ? I'm sure they don't get that bad of mileage.

I can see that... all wheel drive...big tires no aerodynamics..and that 6.0 alone in a Truck is a pig..now apply that to a H2 and towing 10,000 pounds????? yea hard to beleve but could be true.
it could really use a Duramax diesel !!!! That would really fit our applicatiopn well.

The 6 liter is a gas hog. My '01 dually with 4.10's gets 9-10 mpg. My '00 dually (crew cab 1,000lbs heavier) 454 with 4.56's got 10-12mpg. WAY less pulling power than the 2000 454 and worse gas milage, what a great combination!

2 mpg is pretty bad, but the maximum tow capacity is listed as 6500. Maybe being 3500# over the recommended max could be an issue.

That is cool to have the hour meter to bounce off miles traveled. I do have to agree with Bill272........10k seems like a lot of weight for the H2 and the short wheelbase.

Someone I know put 10" lift and 38" tires. I wonder about there mileage and towing. They do look awesome. Did they stop making the original style Hummers. I thought they had diesel engines.

Yes they do still make the H1 hummer. Got something in the mail today saying that MSRP is $106,185. For the real hummer


6.5L V8 (assuming deisal)

195 hp
430 trq
towing capacity 7600 lbs


The H2 is just a square box tahoe.. thats it
