It was about time for the American carmaker General Motors to introduce a brand new 2016 Hummer H2, since the production of the first generation of this model ended back in 2009. Hopefully, it will manage to accomplish the same level of success its predecessor had, at least in the US market.
2016 Hummer H2 Exterior
It is yet unknown how the production model of the new 2016 Hummer H2 is going to look, but one thing is sure, it will definitely inherit the intimidating appearance from its predecessor. The previous model was available in both SUV and SUT body styles. They were basically the same, but the SUT, which stands for Sports Utility Truck, had an open bed in the back ant it was able to haul cargo with an extensible box to reach 6 feet in length. Also, it was the only truck to have the letters Hummer written between the grille. The new model is expected to be 1400 pounds heavier than its predecessor, which means using lightweight materials wasn’t on the menu when it comes to implementing new technologies. It will also be slightly bigger than the previous model, but more details about the actual look of this car are yet to come.
Interior of Hummer H2
When it comes to the interior of 2016 Hummer H2, comfortable seats and more than enough space for all the passengers to enjoy the long rides is the least we expect from such a popular vehicle. Nonetheless, the cabin will be more stylish and sophisticated than ever. It will possibly feature an improved A/C and audio system, as well as a brand new GPS system with navigation. It will feature a touch screen display next to the steering wheel, making it easy to handle the maps and infotainment system. In order to improve the safety of the vehicle itself, airbags will be placed in every corner of the H2.
Hummer H2 2016 Engine and Transmission
We still don’t have any reliable information about the engine options available for the new 2016 Hummer H2, but, if we trust the speculations, it’s probably going to feature a powerful 6.0 liter V8 or, perhaps, a larger 6.8 liter V8 that would be able to output up to 400 HP. Under the hood of the latest H2, there was a 6.2 liter V8 that generated 393 HP at 5700 rpm and 415 lb ft of torque. It was able to accelerate from 0 to 60 in just under 10 seconds, and the fuel consumption wasn’t very impressive, rated at about 10 mpg. Transmission wise, we expect to, traditionally, see a 6 speed automatic. It will remain a front engine, four wheel drive with the possibility of changing the drivetrain form to back wheel drive for driving on the main road.
2016 Hummer H2 Release Date
Although there are still no official information about the release date, we expect the new 2016 Hummer H2 to be displayed at the showrooms by the end of 2015, or in the early 2016.
Price of 2016 Hummer H2
The actual price of the new 2016 Hummer H2 has not been published yet, but some sources reported that the base price will start at around $32,000. However, optional features will definitely boost it up for a couple of thousands.
We are looking forward to see if the engineers accomplished the goal of making this car faster and more efficient.
