Its a modified Cchevy Canyon/Colorado frame. But from what I've read, "modified" if the key word. The H2 isn't built on a Tahoe frame but a "modified" Tahoe frame.

To answer your question, no, I don't want one.

I suppose I was looking for those in the affirmative. But thanks for sharing! :up:

Minor Threat 08-15-05 03:15 PM

CRM114 - I honestly think it looks very similar to the 2005 Jeep grand Cherokee which probably has a much friendly price tag.

But if you've got a small piedanker, get the HIII...... -wink-

Don't get me wrong, I like the design of the car but the reason is that I don't buy domestic cars.

the kind that puts out on the first date.

seriously though - the last thing I want is a girl I can buy with flashy cars and money and whatnot... shallow bitches make my dick soft. By the way - that mercedes truck is fugly imo.

I like SUVs and all, but the Hummer just seems too fat and flashy.

kvrdave 08-15-05 03:22 PM

I think they will sell the hell out of those things. I am a little surprised that they went with a 5 cylinder, but I remember the Audi 5 cylinder was absolutely bullet proof, so maybe it will turn out for the best. I wouldn't have a problem with the MPG of the thing, either. It seems fine for what it is, but it does seem like one should get better than 2 MPG better with 3 less cylinders. However, my Honda Element actually gets a little worse mileage than our 6 cylinder Oddysee.

But I can definately see the appeal of the H3. I would take it over any full sized SUV, and over any medium SUV as well.

Giantrobo 08-15-05 03:28 PM

I like the new H3's. :up: I saw one on the raod a few weeks ago and I was impressed.

I've heard that said about the Original Durangos.


BTW, I don't know about the H3's on "Nasty Terrain" but this H2 didn't do so good.;)

Hummer Bummer Watch it in Full Screen so you can see what happens. $$$$$$$

Geofferson 08-15-05 03:35 PM

It's a nice SUV, but not interested since it wouldn't look right parked next to my Prius.

Jeez the Cherokees are so outdated looking. It's time to start with a clean slate.

Look at this one. Its a lot more expensive but it kicks ass.

that's a "Commander" - the Liberty took over for the regular Cherokee... this car is about the size of the Grand Cherokee only 2 inches longer and a bit taller. The Grand Cherokee saw a redesign and looks like ass now. I almost kinda like the Commander.

Red Dog 08-15-05 03:52 PM

I want one.







NOT!!!

Nah. The H3 starts at $29K. The one I'd get would probably be closer to $38 or so.

The H3 has a better approach and departure angle. You can go over a 16 inch wall with the H3. You'd rip the rear bumper off the Cherokee trying to do that.

CRM114 08-15-05 03:59 PM

BTW, the only other SUV I'm considering at the moment is the Infiniti QX56.

http://images.autobytel.com/view/aic...frdrvr75_x.jpg

I like the Acura MDX if it was just slightly bigger.

Now if you were buying a MDX, I would have agreed with you.

Love the MDX. I'm waiting for imminent redesign. Hopefully, they made it bigger. Lexus and Infiniti both have BIG SUVs but Acura doesn't.

mikehunt 08-15-05 04:28 PM

no desire at all
if I was going to get a hummer my second choice would be a commercial H1
first choice would be an actual surplus military one, preferably with a few different of the back end accessories (clamshell cover, square boxy cover that males it look kind of like the shape the H2 is, etc)

4. See 1 and 2, there's more interior room inside a wagon than most SUVs, especially a silly soccer-mom SUV like a H3/H2. Mmmm, stick on plastic faux tough bits :drool:

We all know what your preference in girls is. http://images.google.com/images?q=tb...e/cocacola.gif

The whole chick and car thing is one of those where im talking out of my ass. I've been with my wife for close to 10 yrs (since i was 19:jawdrop: )so really i dont know.

As for talking shit on the G wagon my friend you honestly dont know shit. The g wagon is 460 hp on and small lightweight suv frame. That thing is an instant smile when you hit the gas.


You can have your jeep i'll take the G wagon anyday of the week.

I'd disagree with you totally but mostly on the wagon part. Growing up in the 70's, the station wagon is the epitome of mom mobile. All the moms had something like this:

Those babies might have made more room than a modern SUV.

And if I'm getting hit by an SUV, I want to be IN an SUV. And if I want to drive in 16 inches of snow before the roads are plowed, I'm not going to do it in ANY car.
