    Is it true that the H2 is essentially a Suburban -- same frame, same engine -- with a different body? I remember hearing that once, but can't seem to track down a reliable source.

    It is either a Suburban or a Chevy Avalanche frame. The engine is not the same as far as I know. I remember hearing this at the NY Auto Show a few years back when the H2 was previewed.

    They seem to be moving further and further from the vehicle that everybody was/is in awe of the military hummer(lm002 I think) which I think is a mistake.

    its a glorified grocery getter. The suspension is the suburban IFS (which is a great work truck, bad off-road vehicle) i've seen them trying to tackle the trails here in Georgia, and its a painful sight. They should stick to being the backdrops for Rap videos and leave the trials for real 4x4's

    just my .02 cents worth [​IMG]

    It's a "girl" Hummer... they might as well manufacture them all in pink.

    A friend heard a LM002 pull away from a toll booth on the Mass Pike many years ago. He said it sounded like nothing he'd ever heard before... Like a shriek. That was what made him look over and see it. Then he saw the badge on it.

    Ha!, I made a mint last year on those hideous things. Now the hype has died a bit. Even the boss here sold his, because they're everywhere now. It's actually a decent ride. A bit feminine compared to the H1.



    SIDE RANT :



    Vague much? Trust me, technicians will find the above quote funny. For the record, he asked if it had the same frame. Not if shared the same pitman arm as a Suburban. Charlie Martin can eat mold. He ought to be working around the clock to dream up a stock suspension that actually functions and lasts. Hey techs, I have a dollar for every Chevy/GMC idler and pitman arm you've changed over the years. Any takers? I will sweeten the deal if you know the labor times by heart. [​IMG]

    Thanks, guys. From looking through GM's various websites, it looks like the H2 and the 3/4-ton Suburban share the same Vortec 6000 V8. Is that accurate?

    For the record, I'm not much of a car guy, but I'm writing an article in which I *need* to get this information correct.

    To put it easy

    1. An H2 comes with a "vin U" 6.0 366 cid.
    2. The 1995-2002 H1's came with either a 350 5.7L or a 6.5 Diesel motor(two variations). 1993 was a 6.2dsl exclusively. 1994 offered all three options (6.2dsl, 6.5dsl, 5.7L)
    3. A Suburban 2500 can come with a few different motors. So to say that the Hummer H2 has the same motor as the 2500 Suburban would only be partially correct.

    I saw a stretched Hummer limosine the other week;; truely bizarre. I wish I had my camera on me at the time.

    I honestly don't know why anybody would want a hummer, stretched or otherwise. It's the least practical car I've ever seen, unless you're planning to storm a capital building or follow tanks arround.

    Oh my, we could do this all day. And so does a flippin' Escalade and the newer Cargo/Express vans. It's a very popular GM motor.

    He's writing an article. You wouldn't say "it has the same motor as______." You would simply say "The H2 is equipped with GM's 6.0-liter Vortec 6000." [​IMG]


    "It's the same", "they are all the same" rhetoric has plagued parts and service employees for years. Just tell me what you do have.

    Having driven in France and Italy I can only imagine the cost of owning a sub 10mpg SUV.

    All our 3 vehicles use premium, but the mpgs on the vehicles avg 22, 25 and 32mpg.
