The HUMMER H2 enters 2009 with new technologies – including Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free phone operation – new interior amenities, a Black Chrome limited edition model and standard E85 FlexFuel capability.

The H2 and H2 SUT’s changes for 2009 increase the model line’s choices of amenities to enhance comfort and convenience. They complement a luxury-appointed interior that was redesigned for 2008. The new features include: Available second-row captains chairs that deliver a more personal and luxurious seating choice; third-row seat storage that frees up more storage space in the interior; heated steering wheel; power-tilting steering wheel.

The seats have a chiseled appearance and offer excellent comfort; front-seat safety belt pretensioners are standard. Complementing the seats are upscale door trim panels and an instrument panel with a six-gauge instrument cluster.

The pulling power of the H2 comes from its 6.2L V-8 engine rated at 393 horsepower and 415 lb.-ft. of torque. A six-speed RWD electronically controlled automatic transmission backs the 6.2L engine. The transmission has a “tap up/tap down” capability that allows the driver to manually select upshifts and downshifts with buttons on the steering wheel. New for 2009, the 6.2L engine is calibrated for FlexFuel capability, so it can run on E85 ethanol, gasoline or any combination of the two fuels.
