And its 8,200-pound towing capability keeps up with the abilities of full-size pickups. Likely be hard to do here. The gear selector looks like the throttle out of a commercial airliner, but it's made of aluminum and features details like real Allen screws, which give it an industrial look. I used to hate driving my wifes 05 H2. While the brakes have a somewhat soft feel, reviewers describe stopping power as adequate and well-controlled.
The new dashboard features nice, soft-touch materials. We have gotten 7 in; but some of those were girls I love all you haters. The Hummer's quiet cabin also benefits from an organized and easy-to-operate set of controls, but the optional navigation system may cause some distraction and frustration due to its less user-friendly layout. My belief is if you want to tow heavy loads, buy an old station wagon, those suckers could pull a fully loaded tractor trailer while loaded with luggage and 5 kids!!!
