HUMMER press release:

The iconic HUMMER H2 is introducing an exclusive Limited Dark Chrome Edition and it is available at Liberty Automobiles showrooms across the

UAE.

Part of the innovative yet practical changes introduced to this Limited Dark Chrome Edition H2 include a more refined interior that combines luxury alongside HUMMER’s legendary ruggedness. In addition to this once-in-a-life-time trim that will be available to only 1,300 customers globally, offering are enhanced safety features, a sophisticated powertrain set-up and Variable Valve Timing (VVT) technology which offers the dual benefit of improved performance and fuel efficiency.

Adib Takieddine, Marketing Manager of HUMMER in the Middle East said: “With continuing innovations such as these, the HUMMER brand remains strong in the region. The additions to the line-up for 2009 including the HUMMER H3T and this Limited Dark

Chrome Edition make it clear that HUMMER remains true to its DNA as a ‘Like Nothing Else’ brand. The Limited Dark Chrome Edition HUMMER H2 which takes styling and individualization to a distinctive and exclusive level, is the icing on the cake for the HUMMER enthusiasts.”

Exclusivity par excellence

The Limited Dark Chrome Edition H2 is available on both SUV and SUT models and these vehicles can be distinguished on the outside with black chrome details, including Twenty-inch chrome-clad wheels, grille, hood latches and handles, fuel filler door, door handles, mirror caps, “H2” badges, side air vents and spare tyre cover. Meanwhile the wheel flares (arches), rocker mouldings and hood (bonnet) louvre will be body coloured.

Three exterior colours are available with the Limited Dark Chrome Edition 2009 H2 including the new-for-2009 Silver Ice Metallic and the existing Sedona Metallic and Carbon Black Metallic. Designers have worked quite hard to work out the exterior and interior combinations for the benefit of discerning customers. Silver Ice Metallic and Carbon Black Metallic are offered with the Ebony/Shale interior combination, while the Sedona Metallic colour is exclusive to the Limited Dark Chrome edition and is offered only with the Sedona interior.

Smarter interior

A set of new seats in the H2 present a more sculptured appearance and offer improved comfort and lumber support. The top anchorage of the front seat belts is now mounted on the B-pillar rather than on the seats and this change enabled engineers to adopt an uncompromising approach to achieving optimum seat comfort. Among the new features are second-row captain’s chairs that deliver a more personal and luxurious seating choice; third-row seat storage that frees up more storage space in the H2’s interior.

Complementing the new seats are new door trim panels and throughout the cabin soft-touch materials and new, more tactile controls enhance the feeling of craftsmanship demonstrated by a new interior. Precision design has ensured that the interior panel gaps are just one millimetre which adds to the overall premium feel.

Meanwhile, an all-new instrument panel with a six-gauge instrument cluster features a more sporty appearance.  The dashboard also features new vents that enhance heating or cooling comfort throughout the vehicle – particularly for the second-row and third-row seat occupants. The busy centre stack houses the climate controls and premium quality audio surround sound system. 

Additional comfort and convenience features that are standard or optional (depending on model) include a new rear-seat overhead DVD entertainment system, a satellite navigation system and a rear-view camera system. Innovative technology has allowed the camera to be placed in the rear view mirror while the images appear on the mirror aiding the driver’s line of sight during the reversing manoeuvre.

A ‘must use’ convenience feature for Middle East customers is the popular remote start system that enables the vehicle’s interior to be heated or cooled prior to driving.

Optimised powertrain

The pulling power of the H2 comes from its lightweight small block 6.2-litre V8 engine that uses Variable Valve Timing technology to maximize performance and fuel efficiency. It produces 441 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 454 Nm of torque at 4400 rpm. The engine is made of lightweight materials and including an aluminium cylinder block.

Mated to this engine is a six-speed Hydra-Matic 6L80 electronically controlled automatic transmission which has a wide, 6.04:1 overall ratio – including two overdrive gears. Also included in the transmission is a “tap up/tap down” capability that allows the driver to manually select upshifts and downshifts with buttons on the steering wheel. This arrangement helps deliver an excellent balance of performance and fuel economy and more control off-road with a revised crawl ratio of approximately 39:1. The axle ratio now stands at 3.73 and with this optimized powertrain set-up the towing capacity has been increased to 3,727kg.
