The Hummer H2 and H1 climb into the used SUV market.
By: Chris Smith
When Hummer introduced the new H2 for 2003 it became an instant "gotta have" for off-road enthusiasts. This new "civilian" version of the predecessor "H1" has been given
a new refined look and added amenities to satisfy even the luxury conscious. Heated seats, an upgradeable chrome package and sunroofs are not things typically associated with a military born vehicle,
but have proven to be a big hit with consumers. (Photos top/down: H1 off-road, H1 profile, H2 profile, H2 interior)
Introduced by GM, the first Hummer (now referred to as the H1) was built as a prototype for the US military in the 1970's. Although the manufacturing name has changed to Hummer, GM still owns and
produces the vehicle that can be found in higher end GM dealerships nationwide. The price of a new H2 will run you $40,000 - $50,000, which is not outrageous considering some of it's smaller competitors
fall in the same range or just below.
Falling in line with trends seen by other car companies choosing to revive golden oldies, Volkswagen's New Beetle/Conv and Mini's Cooper, Hummer's older vehicles are seeing an increase in buyer
demand as well. Although you won't find many H2's in the used car market yet, the H1's can be found for relatively easily. But as always, with limited supply and increased demand, there may not
be many "deals" out there for this go anywhere SUV. If you are looking for a Hummer purely for capability, the used H1 is a great choice. For those looking for a few more amenities, you
should expect to see more used H2's for sale by summers end.
