We recently brought you the Hummer H3 face-off from Cars.com – here is a video that pits the Hummer H2 against some of its luxury competitors. The video was produced at AM General’s Hummer off-road training facility, so you can take a guess where this is heading. I don’t claim that this video proves Hummer’s […]
