HUMMER announced this morning a new version of its H2 SUV called the Victory Red Limited Edition, which is marked by its bright "Victory Red" paint job that extends to body-color fender and rocker moldings. Available for the H2 and H2 SUT, the limited-run package also includes a low-profile, roof-mounted light bar, chrome bits dotting the exterior and 17-inch chrome wheels. We take umbrage with the decision to use carbon fiber appearance accents on the interior, but dig the rear-vision camera system that displays video from a camera out back on a 3.5-inch display that slides out the side of the rearview mirror. Other premium touches include a heated windshield wiper system and rear-seat DVD entertainment system with headrest-mounted screens and wireless headphones. All these premium bits add up to a premium price tag, with the SUV starting at $66,030 and the SUT at $65,575. That's a pretty big jump over the $54,255 base price of a standard H2 SUV, though even those can be optioned up with packages to hit $60k pretty easily. We'll likely see the "Victory Red" at the Chicago Auto Show, and it will be arriving in dealerships sometime in February.

PRESS RELEASE:

HUMMER H2 VICTORY RED LIMITED EDITION ARRIVES AT DEALERS IN FEBRUARY

DETROIT – HUMMER is expanding its product lineup with a new "Victory Red" limited-edition H2. This special edition is available in SUV and SUT versions, and maintains HUMMER's trademark bold design and unmatched off-road capability. The exclusive models arrive at dealerships in February with SUV pricing at $66,030 MSRP and SUT pricing at $65,575 MSRP.

"The Victory Red edition offers HUMMER enthusiasts a distinctive new choice and unique features," said Martin Walsh, HUMMER general manager. "The package brings exclusivity to the SUV and SUT marketplace, and rounds out the 2007 H2 lineup."

The 2007 limited edition includes all the standard features of the H2, along with a unique Victory Red exterior, rear-vision camera system and uplevel premium appearance package.

The package features body-color fender moldings and rocker moldings with an integrated assist step, and a lower-profile, roof-mounted light bar with integral lamps. Chrome hood handles, hood latches, hood louver, exterior side vents, rear D-rings and fuel filler door, and 17-inch flangeless chrome wheels complete the exterior. Inside, the limited edition has new carbon fiber appearance accents.

The rear-vision system features a 3.5-inch full-color display housed in the rearview mirror, which receives its picture from a universal rear-mounted camera. When the vehicle is shifted into Reverse, the video display automatically deploys from the side of the mirror, providing the driver an image of the area behind the vehicle both day and night. The display is in the driver's natural line of sight, and the slide-out display won't compromise a driver's traditional field of view or create distracting glare. The screen then retracts back into the mirror when the vehicle is shifted out of Reverse.

In addition, the special edition has a heated windshield wiper system with warm fluid that removes snow, ice and debris, and a rear-seat DVD system with dual headrest-mounted viewing screens and wireless headphones.

The limited edition also carries GM's five year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty and HUMMER's premium four year/50,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty.

      H2's are great. But, when is the redesign? The Tahoe on which it is based is now on the GMT900, but the H2 still continues on the old one. An image-setting vehicle such as a Hummer wears off quickly and needs constant and significant updates to keep it popular.

      All H2 owners should form a coalition. A coalition of the burly and fiscally senseless. We will accept no Hummer less than a Victory and we will resist those who's policy is "cut loses and redesign".

      To be fair, i usually see women driving these...all it enhances on them is how small they are in comparison to the massive garbage can on wheels they are driving.

      Just one problem with your post, Alain: in 2006, 40% of H2 buyers were women.

      As for the other 60%, a guy who's comfortable in his skin doesn't need a 6,000 lb caricature of a "man's car" to broadcast his masculinity to the world.

      I'm more confused about this special edition's pricing:

      2007 Hummer H2: $53,400.
      Rearview camera: $1,350.
      DVD Entertainment system: $2,095.
      Chrome appearance package: $1,120.
      Chrome alloy wheels: $900.
      Total: $58,865.

      You could probably get Christo to paint your Hummer red for less than the remaining $7,165. A roof rack, fender vents, carbon-fiber dash trim, and heated windshield wipers hardly account for the remaining price premium.

      Given Hummer no longer makes the H1, H2 sales are on a rapid decline, and the H3 is an underpowered gimmic...How long till Hummer joins the likes of Buick and Lincoln as "dead" brands?

      Who said running over the neighbor kids was a bad thing?

      broman78,

      A tax benefit is the wrong reason to buy any SUV. For one, in the long run you are no better off than had you bought any other method of transportation as you get to take depreciation on all business vehicles not just SUVs. And two, if you are willing to spend $1 to save $.35 (or less) you are still out of pocket another $.65.

      Damn, no 6 speed automatic yet.
      • 8 Years Ago
      Hmmmm
      This is the kind of thing.. that brings on bonfires.

      Now.. with that said.. a real man who drives around in this.. is totally compensating. And the only real punishment for this kind of blatent stupidity.. is to have the vehicle found.. and blown the F up.

      Real men drive these things... haha. Ya want real.. Let me show ya what it takes to cut one of these damn things off... show ya what a ditch looks like.. UP CLOSE.

      So, the leftist, tree-hugging pansy-waists found their way on the "Interwebs". What do you folks care about driving? Shouldn't you be riding a bike or utilizing "public transportation"? Go choke on a triple-tofu-metrosexual-latté and leave the rest of us real men to do the driving.

      #13, I love cars, they are my passion. That is exactly why I hate the Hummer. I loved the H1; the H2 and H3 are badge engineered jokes.
