It's hard not to notice the radical styling of the 2008 HUMMER H2, and reviews read by TheCarConnection.com found plenty to like in this hulking vehicle.

For the most part, reviewers find the 2008 HUMMER H2 to be a refreshing mix of the original H1's commando charm and traditional luxury SUVs—and in the case of the 2008 HUMMER H2 SUT, a short-bed pickup truck. Kelley Blue Book enjoys the fact that the "doors are neatly flush with the rest of the body panels," but also admires rugged touches such as "exposed latches, lift handles and fasteners." Car and Driver agrees, stating that the H2 is "still dominated by big, simple shapes, which lend it a rugged appearance, but the materials have a quality look."

The 2008 HUMMER H2 was designed to mimic military vehicles, and to encounter some serious off-road terrain. Automobile.com brags about the "extremely short front and rear overhangs, which make for radical breakover and departure angles."

A less-than-luxurious interior has been a complaint about past models of the H2 HUMMER; 2008’s massive overhaul of the interior has quieted these concerns. Edmunds describes it as "more upscale with better fit and finish." Popular Mechanics is even more impressed, stating that the "seats are better, the door panels are better, the third-row rear seat has been revised, and every piece seems to fit together more precisely and cleanly."

While reviewers agree the 2008 HUMMER H2 looks great, the styling does diminish functionality. Edmunds complains of "poor outward visibility" due to the roof pillars. For the H2 SUT, ForbesAuto docks points for a short pickup bed that "tends to limit its use as a cargo hauler."

Conclusion

A welcome boost of interior luxury has the 2008 HUMMER H2 hitting the off-road trails in style.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
