What a behemoth this vehicle is. I've always scratched my head when it comes to the number of Hummers that proliferated on the road before the sharp spike in oil prices and the resulting economic downturn eventually hammered a series of nails in this vehicle's metaphorical coffin. While the production of the H2 has been suspended for the immediate future and is scheduled to return in the not too distant tomorrow, there are a number of Hummer vehicles that are sadly sitting around dealerships collecting rust.
I imagine the big turn on to the H2 was its size. The huge boom of consumer interest in large sport utility vehicles reached its zenith during the early parts of the 21st century and the Hummer H2 certainly catered to that market. Nevertheless, while this vehicle is certainly a monster from the outside, the interior is one of the biggest surprises I've ever experienced when hauling myself in and out of a large sport utility vehicle.
The interior is a complete joke. It's absolutely claustrophobic. Judging from the exterior, one would think passengers would be capable of doing gymnastics inside the cavernous bulk of the Hummer H2. It seemed far too much space was sacrificed for all of the external workings. While the Hummer H2 is one of the few sport utility vehicles people can actually go off road in, this commitment has made the vehicle sorely lacking in accommodations. Trying to load anything beyond the weekly groceries in this vehicle is a difficult proposition at best. The interior is just far too cramped.
Driving the Hummer H2 is akin to piloting a large watercraft. The vehicle is certainly solid but don't try taking any turns in haste. Being behind the wheel of this vehicle was a little nerve wracking because it just had such a terrible response time. Slow and steady is the key here. Fuel efficiency, not surprisingly, was atrocious.
