Found this over at GMinsidenews. Looks 100x better then the current one. Class leading? Most definately not considering that it competes against Land Rover, but at least it looks like it won't have that cheap, hollow, grainy plastic that plagues the current H2.

better, much better. but like you said, they need to go further, much further in this extreme they are going in now. The outside techy look must match the inside. Do that, and I'll stop thinking of this car as one of the most useless on the market.

The clock looks dumb, but this is certainly a vast improvement.

Yes, why is GM starting to put clocks in most of their cars/trucks anyway? Personally I think its time to axe the H2, its getting long in the tooth. I never really cared for it to begin with and to just come out with bold new colors and a interior refresh does not cut it. Its a hog that needs to go to the slaughter.

If a HUMMER must be burdened with an illegible analog clock, let it have a massively-oversized bezel and an olive drab green face like an outdoorsy watch.

MUCH improved!

If the interior materials mimic the GMT-900s, then it will be a winner.

Material quality aside, I'm just glad it LOOKS so much better. I HATED the old H2 with the exaggerated circular vents and the cheap execution.

It's still a penis enhancer, but at least it looks way less dumb on the inside.

The old one actually doesn't look that bad. But the new one is nicer, although I don't care for the lowering of all of the controls on the center stack....thank god they ditched that hideous steering wheel.

That actually shows a HUGE improvement. It shows just how far you can go with an interior upgrade.

Now will the H2 be moved over to the GMT900 chassis or what?

Remember, too, that the H2s interior was very remeniscent of the H1's...

Now with that gone and the H2 standing on its own legs, its time it got an upscale but uniquely rugged design of its own. Good jorb, GM.

Here's the 2008 H2 Dash:

Now here's the 2007 GMC Sierra's "pure pickup" (or WT/SLE1) dash:

Can you see that the new H2 interior has GMT-900 pickup parts in it? I wouldn't be surpirsed if more of the H2 is based on the all-new GMT-900 pickups/suvs!

Its nicer than before, but if anyone has ever seen the Hummer H3 book with all those different exterior styling proposals, you'd agree they were all far more daring than the production model, as it almost always is these days. Still not overly wild about that Equinox/Lambda steering wheel-the Grand Prix and (...gasp!) minivan steering wheel is much better.

Ya know, I find it funny how everyone always says that.... Yet they never apply that same logic to the countless new 'effeminate--want to be taken seriously as a male' Tundra buyers and frat punks in their 'x treme sport' Xterras and Titans. Or even the 'look at me I'm a big exec' their high dollar flashy Mercedes.

I'd love to have an H2... Mainly just to piss people off.
