In 1983, the first military vehicles of the USA.UU., Called HUMVEE (vehicles of multi-purpose wheels of high mobility), entered in service with the Army of the EE. UU The civilian population has shown an unexpected interest in them. And in 1992 the legendary Hummer H1 was born. Technically, the military version of civil matters hardly differed. Unfortunately, the H1 does not adapt very well to the life of the city, and the fact is that not only does it seem too bulky and not very suitable for movement on city streets, but the H1 classroom has a minimum of comfort and services. In 2002, the second urban version of the Hummer – H2 appeared on the market. This time, the manufacturers took all the errors into account and approached the development of a new version much more seriously. Today, the American company Hummer is part of the concern of General Motors and specializes in the production of large capacity monumental all-terrain vehicles. The modern Hummer is undoubtedly one of the most recognizable cars in the world.

H2 is a great combination of comfort and high traffic. Hummer H2 has decreased slightly in size compared to its legendary relative. The angular appearance not only gives the car a distinctive look, but also helps improve visibility and increase internal space. The exterior is designed as H1: minimal overhangs, almost vertical struts and huge wheels of dimension 315/70 R17. The rough shape of a body similar to a brick is highlighted by a windscreen typically straight jeep. In a word, brutal aspect, rough, but very attractive porsche 944 car cover.
To reduce wind noise when driving in H2, GM improved the sealing of the windows and increased the thickness of the windshield by 20%. The image complements a great interior decoration. This time the manufacturer took care of the comfort of the driver and the passengers. The wide openings in the doors make getting in and out of the car extremely easy. The engineers paid special attention to the design of the seat. The comfortable H2 front seats have electrically adjustable cushion and backrest in eight dimensions, electrically adjustable lumbar support in four dimensions and a memory for two different drivers. In the standard version, the seats have textile upholstery. When ordering leather upholstery, the front seats have independent heating of the cushions and backrests with the possibility of installing different heating levels (passengers in the second row also receive adjustable cushions with electric heating). The backrest of the second row is divided in relation to 60/40 and folded. For maximum comfort, the height of the backrest is increased. In addition, the rear seat can be folded and disassembled quickly to significantly increase the useful volume of the boot. The H2 room has a variety of compartments for storing small items, which is very convenient during long trips. The trunk varies from 1132 to 2452 liters. The center console of the “aircraft” type and the gear lever, protruding prominently, the round vents and surfaces with a raised texture, point to the functional military style of the Hummer. The H2 on-board computer, which is a real information center for the driver, is capable of emitting up to 28 different messages that reflect the status of various vehicle systems.
It will inform about the current fuel balance in the tank and the reserve, the average fuel consumption, the daily mileage. Living room 6 seats (2 + 3 + 1). In Russia, mounted on the “Autotor” Hummer H2, it is offered in three levels of equipment: Base, Adventure and Luxury (10 variants in total). Standard features include front airbags, child seat closures, front seat belts attached to the seats, adjustable headrests on all seats and numerous handrails in the cab. The dual-zone electronic climate control, which comes standard, allows the driver and passenger in the front seat to choose the most comfortable temperature and airflow by themselves. The large round baffles located in the center and along the edges of the dashboard, as well as at the rear end of the center console of the cab, ensure optimal air circulation. The standard system includes the Bose HiFi audio system with CD player (does not accept mp3 format) and 8 speakers, AM / FM radio receiver, automatic adjustment of the sound volume according to the speed of the movement. Stereo control of the passenger console in the rear seat is equipped with sockets to connect headphones. Depending on the version of the Hummer, you can find front air bags, central locking with remote control, heated and heated seats, rear air suspension, leather seats, chrome accents and other equipment. The long wheelbase provides stability on the road and comfort for passengers when driving, and short projections help overcome various obstacles. Placed at the corners of the wheels of the body and a wide width make the H2 a true conqueror of all roads.
All versions are equipped only with the Borg Warner permanent permanent traction system with rear suspension. The operation of this system aims to “remove” H2 from the most insurmountable well and from the fast sand itself. The anti-slip system controls the operation of all four wheels simultaneously. If one of them loses traction, the torque is transferred to the other three, and so on until the complete loss of the 3-wheel clutch at the same time. Then, the entire pair will only go to a single wheel. When activating the TCS2 function, the torque is applied to the wheels before How the traction control system will take effect. This allows the Hummer H2 to move in deep snow or sand when the wheels are supposedly “rowing” on a loose surface. These off-road properties do not end there. The Hummer H2 has four four-wheel drive modes 4WI, 4HI Lock, 4LO Lock and 4LO Lock with rear differential lock. The first is used when driving on normal roads, when the torque is distributed from the front to the rear axle in a ratio of 40/60 percent. The second mode is suitable for slippery surfaces, locks the center differential and divides the torque in half between the rear and front axles. The 4LO locking mode works the same as the previous one, with only one difference: the transmission ratio of the automatic transmission is reduced, allowing you to keep the engine power flow at the limit while overcoming the most serious outside the highway. And, finally, the way to force the rear differential when the wheels of the rear axle receive the same amount of engine torque. There are two options for the rear suspension.

The standard is a suspension of five links with coil springs of non-linear stiffness and long stroke dampers. You can also request a suspension with pneumatic spring elements and an automatic ground clearance, which includes an air compressor, which can also be used to pump wheels. The car climbs vertical obstacles 40 cm high, without causing inconvenience to passengers, can tow a trailer with a gross weight of up to 2,272 kg and calmly overcome bodies of water up to 20 inches deep and carefree movements in the deep sand. The H2 has an impressive background protection over the entire length of the body and a large number of reinforced components, designed to operate in the most difficult climatic and road conditions. A fully welded ladder frame, consisting of three modules, allows you to minimize body vibration when driving. The large trailer hinges and a winch mounting bracket are integrated into the front bumper. The heart of the car has become a powerful 6.0-liter, 6.0-liter V8 gasoline engine from the Vortec family. The energy of the engine is transmitted to the wheels through a 4-speed automatic transmission.

The engine is equipped with a special Hitachi fuel supply system, which is part of the electronic throttle control system, which allows you to choose one of two modes of throttle control, depending on whether the car is driving on asphalt or on a road. By choosing the operating mode of the transfer case (High Open or High Lock), you obtain respectively the dynamics of the acceleration to drive on asphalt or the ability to more accurately dispense the supply of fuel to overcome the heavy road. The H2 has many functions to guarantee the active and passive safety incorporated in the design of your body, the internal and external equipment and the running gear. The dimensions of the car and the exceptional strength of its frame help protect passengers in the event of a collision. The greatest strength is achieved thanks to special constructive solutions, such as the integral welded structure of the front of the frame, exceptionally strong one-piece steel door frames and large, strong bumpers. The specially designed energy-absorbing deformable zones on the front, combined with the most durable safety cage among all full-size GM trucks, provide reliable protection for car occupants. There is another version of the H2 SUT with a truck body pick-up with a load capacity of 998 kg, which is completely unified in design with an SUV, and sold only in North America.
H2 has more horsepower, its final pedestrian transmission ratio is 3.73: 1. Some have questioned the abilities of the H2 off-road, stating that it is better to pick up a load of provisions than for weekends in the dunes.
The H2 is actually a little longer, with 203.6 inches (517.14 cm), although only 81.2 inches (206.25 cm) wide. The H2 is only 9.7 inches (24.64 cm) away from the ground, however, it is much more likely to get stuck on the road.
H2 is not fully capable on earth, and many already have one. Avoid the H2 and buy the H3 instead, if you want the image of the Hummer, in addition to a truck with which you can really handle yourself every day.
