The H2 SUT features GM's innovative Midgate, which quickly converts the five-passenger SUT with a small bed to a two-seat pickup with a six-foot bed. Power comes from a new 393-hp, 6.2-liter Vortec V-8 and is controlled by an also new six-speed automatic transmission with steering wheel mounted shift buttons. A four-wheel-drive system with a two-speed transfer case allows the H2 SUT to tackle the most challenging off-road situations, while extensive underbody protection gives the driver peace of mind. Standard safety features include head curtain airbags, electronic stability control w/roll mitigation, panic brake assist, tire pressure monitoring and OnStar. For 2008, the HUMMER H2 SUT receives its first major redesign since its inception, changes include an all-new powertrain and interior as well as several new standard safety features and some subtle visual and functional exterior changes.
