What is the best year H2? - Page 2 - Hummer Forums - Enthusiast Forum for Hummer Owners

Hummer H2 For those who like a little more gleam to their Hummer, the H2 offers a similar rugged look as the H1, but as a lower cost, and with more added features, making it almost a massive luxury SUV.

Yep old thread. But still the same question. Found an 07 but rather have 08 or 09.

I think 2008 or 2009 with low miles would be the best. My favorite H2 is the 2006 Fusion Orange limited edition. When I saw that model I traded my Yellow '03 H2 for it and have loved it ever since I brought it home.

I have an '06, but I have to agree that an '08/'09 would be better. An extra 70hp and a bit better mpg due to a couple more gears, plus an interior that is perhaps not as manly but it is nicer. I'm getting squeaks and rattles and cracks that I have to believe would be less on the updated versions.

HOWEVER the advantage in ppwer train and the no rattle interior make me wish a 08

Bigger engines 6.2 liter vs 6.0
Better Transmission
Better interior ( Full 3rd row seating compare to one jump sest on the 03-07)
Better Dash

Hip hop rapper, 08/09


Manly man who can take squeaks/rattles and wants a rig that looks like a beast inside 07 and under.

Some will also tell you that the trans in the newer ones is not really any stronger, just more gears which can be a pain if you tow a lot.....

Another plus to the newer ones, replacement interior parts are much less expensive. For now anyways. But as mentioned, the interior is a bit more plain and no dash *****.

In the 08-09's if towing is an issue with the six speed, shift to manual and set the high gear selection to where you want it, you can keep the rpm's wherever you want it.

I would disagree that the 6L80 is not any stronger than the 4L65E,
