We are looking at some new photos of the future 2018 Hummer H2 car. This has recently emerged and it was by many accounts unexpected. There is still much to be learned about the car as it is supposed to comprise an offer which could bring back some of the glory for the H2 and also make it an acceptable vehicle.
The Hummer H2 has gone a long way since its roots as a military vehicles. Being offered for commercial use and for commuting purposes was one of the best things the brand ever done as the former military vehicle become quite popular. But due to its immense thirst and the need for refueling, only a handful of people are able to afford it. It has mostly been a staple for the rich and the powerful who have used this model as a symbol of power, wealth and supremacy. But the Hummer H2 does not have to be all that, its primary purpose is still off-road use and it does so in a very grand way.
What many people are expecting with the update is that the car gets better fuel economy ratings, but for now as it seems they are still not capable of offering that. Although the 2018 Hummer H2 updates most of its components and does a great job to include a new sustainable offer, we are not seeing a whole lot of improvement in the areas that are crucial. All in all, our review will show you the current specs about the car and will also help you determine if the improvements are really worth it.
The Release Date of the 2018 Hummer H2 Vehicle
After releasing some of the photos of the 2018 Hummer H2 we are able to see what the model will look like. But a few things still remain missing with the expo, and one of them is the release date. As far as things go, the release date is not so close but we are hoping for a mid-2018 release as a possible one.
What could the Price be?
The price for the newest 2018 Hummer H2 is still not determined. There are only a few rumored figures which are out there that we can base the price on. If we are to base the price on the current figures, the new H2 will range from 35,000 dollars, for the base trim, and go all the way to 50,000 dollars for the highest version.
The New Appearance
The newest 2018 Hummer H2 will bring a lot of familiar details but at the same time will try to add more refinement. The car does look a little bit refined compared to the older model and does go a bit towards the luxury side. The model still has some old elements from the H1 commando model and wears them proudly as a heritage sign of what the car once was. But what they manage to add to the old rugged look are some fine, luxury SUV-like elements. So we have a combination of flush door panels and other rugged pieces like exposed latches, lift handles and fasteners. The materials of the car have a quality look although the vehicle is pretty simple looking and it actually enhances its rugged appearance.
Inside of the Hummer H2
Although the 2018 Hummer H2 follows the same type of military style that the original is based upon, it manages to squeeze enough of refinement for the interior of the car. Generally they have added more comfort for the interior of the car. They wanted to make a stark and impactful car when it came to its interior and to manage that it was necessary that the car got updated in terms of interior luxury. Everything from the doors and the seats is better, with comfier materials and even with some added options. Also, it is important to say that everything is put together well and joined correctly which was not the case with some of the previous models.
Powertrain Ability and Specs
Perhaps the greatest advantage of the 2018 Hummer H2 is its off-road ability. The model can be used for city cruising and it is possible to use it at such as many celebrates already do, but the greatest power and potential of the H2 model still lies in its ability to surpass various obstacles and make through different terrains. The off-roading ability is pretty high with this model and allows for it to be even better compare to before. The engine found under the hood is a 6.2-liter eight-cylinder one which returns 393 horsepower and it uses a six-speed automatic transmission as its main choice.
0-60 mph and Top Speed
The numbers for the 2018 Hummer H2 have not really changed and it keeps to its standard set. The time needed to reach 0-60 mph is still kept to around 100 seconds, while a top speed of 103 mph is quite possible.
Still no Advances when it Comes to Fuel Economy
The only downfall of the 2018 Hummer H2 and in fact all the other versions of this brand is that it simply seeps fuel. It is able to consume quite a lot and there have been no improvements made so far. Of course it is quite normal for that to happen if you are using this car for off-road purposes, but if your aim is more of a cruiser one than the fuel economy is not worth it. The car consumes 10 mpg city drive and 13 mpg highway and the stats are not getting better for this version.
Dimensions and Size
The only thing that the 2018 Hummer H2 gets is an aesthetic refinement and not any dimensional and architectural retooling. That is why the vehicle retains its usual kind of a set and offers the same figures in terms of the dimesons. The vehicle is already big enough so there was no need to expand anything further here.
Safety Specifications for the 2018 Hummer H2
At least the safety for the 2018 Hummer H2 is looking good. Based on the initial thoughts of many experts, the safety is something that we should not worry about. The model boasts exceptional standard equipment which helps it attain the necessary figures. Although the official testing is yet to be done you can rest assure that the numbers are going to come back positive.
Maybe the prospect of getting a 2018 Hummer H2 is only a nostalgic fact and some would see it as a relic from the past. But there are some places where the vehicle is still highly popular and there are rivals in the segment which are valued as decent competition cars to this one. The usual batch of cars which appear in the segment, although they do not have equal off-roadign skills, are certainly the Jeep Commander, Cadillac Escalade, Lincoln Navigator and the Mercedes-Benz G-Class models.
